If sunglasses are your go to accessory, or you are looking for something a bit different to your usual eye wear there is no better time to experiment with new styles. We have spent a good portion of this year in lockdown so now is the perfect time to choose something new and refresh your look now we can venture out again. The time for choosing mainstream styles is over, as many of us now like to choose something that make us stand out from the crowd.

Big and Bold

Oversized sunglasses have been a favourite for some time, however now oversized means something totally different. These frames have been seen multiple times on the runway over the last few months and they are so big they make your face look smaller! Whilst this may not be your style, larger sized sunglasses have been a trend for a while.

Keep It Clear

Crystal frames have been popular for quite some time now for their clear colours and stylish finish. Clear frames give off a sleek and classy look and can easily be paired with anything. Crystal eye wear has been incredibly popular for spectacles as well as sunglasses due to their versatility. If you are looking for a style of glasses to suit every occasion, then crystal is your way to go.

Geometry is The Way To Go

Shapes that are out of the box are really popular at the moment including geometric shapes, odd eye shapes and cat eyes. Some of these may seem odd, but they will highlight your facial features and give you an interesting look. The colour of these frames will also have an affect on the look you’re going for, choose a neutral colour for an understated, yet noticeable look or a bold colour for a vibrant, statement look. These are among the top trends for this year and definitely worth a try if you’re looking for something different.

Vintage Never Left

Vintage style frames never really went away; however they seem to be popular for two different audiences now. Retro shades and aviator styles are a timeless classic in sunglasses and round eye and double bridge frames are popular everyday eyewear purchases. These styles are being purchased by those who want to revisit their youth and the Gen Z era who see their iconic, classic appeal. Vintage frames are style that never changes and is always popular due the timelessness of them.

Wooden Eye Wear

Wooden frames have been around for a while but are only just making their mark in the industry. As we shift our focus into being a more sustainable country, environmentally friendly eye wear is becoming a focus. Wooden eye wear is a fantastic choice for someone who is looking for something a little bit more unique.
