There are so many different personality types out there and people express themselves in so many different ways that there are no hard and fast rules to what is fashionable at the moment. Fashion changes fast! With that being said, generally speaking we can see certain trends emerging when we look at the newest eyewear being designed lately. Here are three of my favourite recent trends in eyewear:
- Clear plastic frames! It seems like every range we have is rapidly bringing out their own take on ‘the clear frame’ and they all look SO cool. Even better if they have a hint of colour in them – a clear plastic frame with a pink or gold undertone can look super chic without letting the frames take over your face. This is the subtle look for those with style.
- Geometric metals and fine, vivid colours! I confess, I hate a boring square metal frame. UGH! Now, we’re seeing designers have some real fun making metal frames that feature awesome geometric angles and bright colours and I am loving it! We have some brilliant metal frames in stock at the moment featuring hexagonal shapes and creative colouring. It’s such a breath of fresh air!
- Chunky, bold fashion statements! We have a Prada in stock right now that I absolutely adore – it’s your basic black frame but with the most stylish, eye-catching shape. This frame is calling out to be turned into an awesome pair of readers! Reading glasses don’t have to be boring anymore, folks. If you only wear them for a while each day, have some fun with them!
I also wanted to mention certain ranges we carry that really cater to different unique styles. First up is Woow eyewear, our newest range. This collection feature bright, vivid colours and fun patterns – they’re made to stand out and, honestly, they are like a compliment-magnet! Then, we’ve got Modo eyewear, featuring frames made out of extremely durable titanium – they’re both some of our lightest and strongest frames, so you get the best of both worlds.
There’s also our range of Eco frames, most of which come with an easy magnetic sunglass clip-on matched perfectly to the shape and colour of the frame! Save yourself the hassle of carrying your regular eyewear and sunglasses by merging them into one awesome pair. Lastly, I’ve got to mention our Tom Ford eyewear – not only does it have some amazing statement eyewear in the collection, but we have so many Tom Ford frames that are the pinnacle of refined, classic looks that are never going to go out of style. They’re such a polished, high-quality product and you can feel that even when you try a single pair on – SO good!
Ultimately, your glasses help convey your personality, and even affect someone’s first impression of you. So think about what kind of impression you want to give to others when choosing a frame! You don’t have to have an insane pair of glasses to be fashionable – there are really trendy styles that don’t have to grab attention and scream, “I’m wearing glasses!”. When it comes to eyewear, you need to channel your inner Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada – it doesn’t matter if you’re a young professional or a grandparent, EVERYONE can look great in the right frame and we’re here to help you find them!
