I have always had a thing for sunglasses. Any shape, colour, small or oversized, I was all over it. I’ve also been told I have a sunglasses face (whatever that means) lol. With all that being said, sunglasses will Never Ever EVER go out of style. It just evolves! It gives every outfit that extra “POW” and “UMPH or it’s a great way to hide those puffy eyes when you aren’t feeling your best. Whatever the case is, sun glasses are a must have.
In the 60’s and 70’s, tinted frames were such a statement. It was all about “Love, Peace & Tints. Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s, I remember having a pair of heart shaped pink tinted glasses and thinking I was the coolest girl in town. Today, tinted glasses have made a huge impact in fashion and are the hottest trend for spring summer 2017. Brands like Gucci and Opening Ceremony have taken this hippy trend and transformed it into something more Millennial. Not to mention the colours gives your face that extra pop.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of John Lennon. To me, he is and always will be and and “Iconic” man in music and in style. He also was known for those round coloured or clear frames, which is a style that has been carried on for years and is still today’s hottest trend. Fendi has always been known for their animated accessories and their glasses are no exception. You can either go small or big with the frame. If you are feeling extra adventurous, try picking something with embellishments for even more of a statement. The possibilities are endless.
As a kid, I always wanted to wear reading glasses. I would get a pair with the lowest prescription and pretend that I truly needed them to see. I feel so cool when I put them on. Don’t ask me why, but I just did. As I got older, I went to a vintage shop and bought a pair of clear lens Gazelle’s with a tortoise shell frame that was to die for. I would wear these glasses all the time and felt even more cool than I did as a kid. Then the glasses broke and I was devastated. May I also mention the ever amazing and fashionable Style Maven, “Iris Apfel” with her Iconic lenses!!! One word..”Amazingness” !
With that being said, people are not just wearing spectacles for reading anymore, but wearing them for fashion! Acne and Custo Barcelona have amazing specs that are “geek chic”. Not to mention their cool frames that could work with any outfit.
Now that I got you covered with the hottest trends for your eyes, be sure to go to test any of these frames out and see what style works for you. Don’t be afraid to get a little wild with the design
