Looking for a new pair of trendy sunglasses for the upcoming spring / summer season? Then we will let you in on a style secret: this year is all about metallics.
Wire frame or detailing, such as a top bar or a metal nose bridge / temples, add a contemporary touch to classic styles of sunnies. One of the hottest trends of the moment, these metallic pieces have come straight off the runway, and merge elements of the past and present. Recently, hybrid designs have included the fusion of both plastic and metal parts.
Check out some of our top eyewear selections for Spring Summer ’17.
