Going through this last Fashion Week’s street style photos was a real eye opener as far as spotting sunglasses trends. Of course as with all fashion trends we are still free to wear whichever eyewear we choose. However the one glasses trend that dominated Fashion Week was the metal frame. Spotted everywhere they are seriously taking over the sunglasses trend scene.
Keep reading to see the glasses worn during Fashion week in both Milan and Paris.
The One Glasses Trend that Dominated Fashion Week
Note metal frames but more than that, there seems to be a movement towards down sizing. Smaller frames spotted frequently. We are going back to thinking of glasses needing to fit to the actual face wearing it!
Happy to see round still featuring large. It’s the one shape that really does suit so many different faces.
Did you know that round sun glasses were the first shape ever to be featured in Vogue and this was in the 1940’s. 70 plus years later and we are seeing the same looks come through again.
Then there’s the classic Pilot glasses look. As staple in the eyewear scene as black is for apparel.
What’s your favourite shape?
I seem to be wearing my Pilot look a-likes a lot these days.
They come from a recently discovered online glasses company Optically Co.NZ.
I love the fact that they are so light they feel like you aren’t even wearing glasses. My hubby is happy – he says I finally have a pair of sunnies that are the right size for me – HAHA!
Here are a couple of similar frames I also quite liked. Fabulous value – with every frame you buy they offer free prescription lenses and scratch proof coatings!
Wishing you lots of fun selecting your next sunglasses and remember even in Winter it’s super important to protect your eyes from the Sun.
