Glasses Trends to Look For
Once you’ve finished your eye doctor optical exam and are ready to shop for a new pair of eyeglasses, here’s what you should look for.
1. Thinner Frames
Thick acetate eyeglass frames have been at the forefront of glasses trends in the past few years. But this is changing with a return of thinner frames.
A hot trend among thinner frames is 1970’s-inspired metal frames. These frames are ideal for those looking to make a minimalist fashion statement.
Whether you choose thin metal-frames with a round shape or go with the slightly larger aviator style frame, you’ll make a fashion statement sure to be noticed.
2. Transparent Colors
Acetate frames remain a popular choice for many. They are lightweight and comfortable to wear which makes them a favorite material for eyeglasses.
However, fashion trends are moving away from the bold, thick-rimmed dark frames you’ve seen the past few years.
Instead, thinner transparent frames with a splash of color are in. And they are available in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes to suit all needs.
3. Retro Styles
Even though the oversized frames seen the past few years are falling out of style, the retro look has not gone away. This is especially true for women’s fashion eyewear.
Back in style are the classic cat eye and aviator styles. Even the double bridge which was popular in decades past has come back into fashion.
These styles continue with the minimalist look which is a popular eyeglass trend this year.
4. Wooden Effect Frames
If you’re looking to go fashion forward, then you’ll want to check out the newest style of frames which simulate the look of wood.
The organic texture of wooden effect frames offers a natural look instantly associated with nature and the outdoors.
Available in a variety of wood colors, these frames range from light to dark tones that will suit anyone’s look.
5. Blue Light Blockers
Given the amount of time people spend looking at computer and smartphone screens, protecting against eyestrain is important.
Enter the blue light blocking lenses which can help reduce eye strain caused by the blue light emitted from electronic screens.
Adding a blue light filtering anti-reflective coating to your lenses will help protect your eyes from long hours looking at a screen and may even help you sleep better.
