What people look for

People are demanding new innovation. In response says modern designs are now made with efficient materials that are designed with natural textures and made with eco-friendly frame plating.

  • Colors

Gold and rose gold are dominant colors for metals especially when put with mirrored lens, a technology that offers the style mirrors;  This allows for clear lenses indoors, and then outside your lenses will turn to mirrors. Additionally, blush, nude, smoke, champagne, and crystal frames that are shell pink remain strong choice of colors.

  • Styles

Cat eye glasses are still in trend today, in fact, an uber vintage embellishment styles inspired by the cat eye such as jewels, rivets, pearls, mother of pearl and more were produced. Other than the cat eye, the classic retro aviator and the new sleeker single bridge aviator frames remained trending and are also showcased in sun wear and eye glass collections.

Here are the other trending styles:

  • Bold square frames
  • Retro oversized frames
  • Round and oval frames
  • Square metal frames
  • Hybrid shapes – oversized squares with soft corners

Choice recommendations

Always look for the right fit. The best style for you can highlight your best features.

  • Follow your eyebrow shape

Just follow your eyebrow shape then line up your frames with your cheekbones. Use the opposite shapes to create your desired look. Flat eyebrows juxtaposed with a round frame or arched brows with even greater arched cat eye.

  • Know your signature color

A color that you don’t have a lot in your wardrobe is highly suggested for you. Why? So you don’t have to match your wardrobe to your frame color. Wearing a lot of denim matched with your blue frame can be too monochromatic. A contrasting color has a more dramatic effect. Example, a red color based in blue perfectly fit for denim.

If you are a pure fashion goer and black is your favorite color, you should check out some new hybrid shapes and matte finishes that will turn a plain black frame into an interesting accessory like a fun piece of jewelry.

  • Learn proper outlook

What do you understand about vintage? Marilyn Monroe or Tom Jones? When you think about round frames, are you thinking about Harry Potter or Diane Keaton? Consider your generation and the way you may look like. Go for a traditional black plastic frame if you choose rounded, and pick a Ray Ban if vintage meets 80’s revival is what you’re looking for.

The help of modern technology

A 3D virtual try-on technology can now show you how an eyewear will look like on your face accurately with the use of photo realism without actually wearing it. You may save your time walking from store to store just to find sunglasses that perfectly fits you.

If you’re still undecided, ask the experts for great advice and recommendations.
