Eyewear Fashion Trends

When considering different eyewear fashions, there are a number of factors you should take into consideration. First, the design of a frame can vary greatly, from vintage to modern, to classical and sporty styles. Next, you should consider that frames can come in different materials including metal, titanium, acetate, plastic, wood, and mixes of these products. Furthermore colors vary from brand to brand, having options such as pink, yellow and red.

Vintage and Retro Frames

This trend has been popular in the media lately, but we see that trend waning as too many people looking for new fashions have gone there, and are now beginning to swing back to something more edgy. For edgy, we are seeing more interest in Lucky Brand for the ladies and and John Varvatos for the men.

Layered Colors

Solid colors used to dominate the scene, but now the trend is for more complicated layered colors like you might see in this collection. Also, Lafont is coming back due to their beautiful coloring and chic-retro styling which is a good bridge from the retro to the modern Parisian style.  Check out Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Converse to see many styles with this layering.

Ladies Trends

Ladies are looking more and more for small frames, frames with eye sizes below 46 (which you can find using our frame search or advanced search functions). Small frames really only work on small head though: if you have a larger head, this style is not for you.

Rimless Styles

The sheer and sleek look of the rimless styles continue to generate excitement, for example Silhouette, but more attention is being made to the temples of the rimless frames which are not just small silver titanium strips anymore. Look for hi tech plastics, plastics with a metal spine, and larger thicker temples made of plastic with the full variety of colors.

Prescription Sunglasses

Sport frames have come a long way recently, and many people are choosing the Oakley branded prescription lenses which are available in a large set of Oakley colors, coatings, and wrap sunglasses.
