Spectacle & Sunglasses Trends

8 Sep

Spectacle frames and sunglasses have for long transcended their intended purposes and emerged as fashion accessories. And the trends are dynamic, ever-changing, and exciting. So what are the current trends that will help you keep pace with the world of trendy glasses?

  • Big & Bold – Big & oversized frames are the in thing. It doesn’t matter if they’re a touch too big for your face. Buy them, wear them with confidence, and flaunt your inner flamboyance!


  • Sporty but Small – Gone are the days of full wrap around reflectors for sports-glasses. It’s the age of minimalism now. So if you’re the sporty type, look for glasses that are wrap-around, but small in size

  • Vintage – Anything retro is red-hot. And it is no different when it comes to sunglasses and spectacle frames. Classic shapes from the iconic 60’s & 70’s. Wayfarers, Aviators, they’re all in. And the funkier the colors, the better!


  • Dual Tone – Who said office-wear has to be boring, or formal wear glasses must be plain. It’s the age of merging colors, hues, and dual tones. Look out for subtle but fun dual colored frames and show off your personality

  • Office Chic – No longer is it ‘nerdy’ to be wearing glasses to work. Just like it is fashionable to work at Facebook or Google, as are the glasses. Rim-less is a great way to go


  • Geeked Out – Just like ‘nerdy’ is the new cool, there is suddenly new-found beauty in the geeky too! Typically geeky styles are totally in and make a great statement with otherwise sharp dressing

It’s a riot out there, and the choice of trendy frames is virtually limitless. For a more in-depth trend-spotting of the season, check out this video, and remember to always shop at the best opticians! 

Happy framing!

    The trends change as per season or as per the designers who come up with new designs every now and then.

      Trends are different for different countries. If you live where designers have a huge impact on what you wear, you tend to follow suit. For places where eye care is a higher priority than fashion, seasons are considered. Hoping that answers your query. 🙂
