Spring Shade: Top 5 Trends in Sunglasses

· Updated on May 29, 2018

Finding the right sunglasses for your face is half the battle. They also need to be fashionable. So if you haven’t already ditched those gas station shades (go ahead, we’ll wait), let these five trends from the runways help guide you to something that REALLY flatters your face.

The Square Frame

Gaining momentum from the S/S ‘17 runway shows, the square silhouette continues to grow in popularity, with more and more designers opting for geometric shapes. Smokey grey colors work well and go with pretty much everything.

The New Aviator

Aviator sunglasses have always been popular (and still are), but smaller-sized lenses are becoming more important as we move into the summer months. Rounded shapes with a minimal look work well with metal frames and brow bars.

With the popularity of retro dressing, the round eyewear silhouette remains a strong one for the season. A slightly minimal look works well with metal and wire frames, or for the braver of you out there, opt for a tortoise shell pattern.

Brands like Gucci and Prada have pushed 70’s styling right into the forefront, giving lots of attention to tinted lenses. The eyes are still visible through soft blue, yellow, and smoky grey lenses that give a modern retro look.

Working perfectly for aviator and military-inspired styles, mirrored lenses are key for the summer season and move into the winter months with ease. Many brands are choosing clear frames or metal frames that match the lens for a seamless look.
