This year, the biggest trend for the fall/winter season are the accessories. Bags, statement jewelry, sunglasses – they all can dress up or dress down an outfit and can transform an outfit from basic to trendy in no time!
Because I’m a big sunglasses’ fan, here I am going to share with you 5 of the hottest trends when it comes to eyewear this season! This year, designers offer us a variety of colors, shapes and designs that we can add to every outfit and make it even more stunning!
Trend #1 : Graphic shapes
We saw them in the new collections of Kenzo, Roberto Cavalli and Vera Wang. They come in varieties of colors, shapes and frames. I would say they’re my personal favorite and can be worm equally by men and women. Sunglasses with graphic shapes are the best supplement of the monochromatic look and give the outfit a very futuristic look.
Trend #2 : Big Cat Eye Sunglasses
Let’s be real – cat eye sunglasses have been a trend since forever and nobody knows why this season many designers decided to put them in their collections. We saw the on the catwalk for Karen Walker, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Christian Dior, Schiaparelli and many other designers. Even though cat eye sunglasses aren’t something new, we have to agree that they are a timeless and classic piece that has its own place in every woman’s closet. Cat eye sunglasses give your whole look a retro and elegant look and that’s why they go so well with a classic black coat and high boots.
Trend #3 : The ombre effect
Again – we have seen ombre many times before in clothes, hair and nails, but now it’s in eyewear, too! The ombre sunglasses have the potential to become the favorite type of sunglasses of fashionistas all around the world and we won’t lie – we like them a lot, too! Designers like Roberto Cavalli and Valentino give us the perfect inspiration how to wear a pair of ombre effect sunglasses.
Trend #4 : Transparent glasses
The idea behind having sunglasses is to protect your eyes from the sun. Well, having sunglasses with transparent glasses is kind of inconvenient, but, if combined properly, it’s very cool and unique, too! This year, Louis Vuitton and Giorgio Armani offers some beautiful designs with transparent glasses which, let me tell you, make me want to treat myself and start saving up for a pair. So, if you don’t want to spend several hundred dollars for eyewear, just wait for the less expensive brands to take out their fall collections and get your own pair of thendy glasses!
Trend #5 : Colorful frames
Last, but not least, here come the colorful frames! In the cold and grey winter days there isn’t a better way to spice up an outfit than to add something bright and playful to your outfit? We saw Marni, Vera Wang and Dries van Noten to present their versions of the sunglasses but we are sure they won’t be the last to combine the dull winterwear with a pair of bright summer sunglasses. If you want to follow the trend and buy your own pair, we advice you to go for pastel colors, rather than neon because they were very trendy the whole summer and will continue to be at least for the next season!
