We’re excited to share one of our favourite eyewear trends of the moment – gradient glasses! Whether you love monochrome, pastels or rainbow hues, this ombre frame style is all about the fade.
From dark to light, the gradient glasses trend creates a unique look inspired by classic browline glasses (but without the browline). Achieving a similar effect with colour graduation on a full rim, this style is all about seamless elegance.
But what do we love most about this hot new eyewear trend? Well, it’s totally affordable if you’re in the market for purse-friendly options. Here are some of the best gradient frames for women, with something to suit every budget!
With a cute blue and pink gradient, these Episode EPO-299 prescription glasses are feminine, elegant and super easy to style. Match with a nude/pink lippy and wear it with casuals, workwear or your party attire.
Blue hues are a great choice for eyewear. Not only is it a versatile colour, but it can add a playful twist to classic design.
Prada PR 07YV
The Prada PR 07YV prescription glasses are for those looking to splurge on an investment piece. Utterly timeless, these designer specs are perfect for wearing to any event or occasion. Day or night, this frame style knows no bounds, giving you excellent cost-per-wear and an easy way to elevate any outfit in your wardrobe.
With a gentle ombre, this nails the gradient glasses trend without being too out there. Meaning it’s accessible for people of all ages, and it goes with all the colours of the rainbow.
Vera Wang V563
If you’re obsessed with vintage, you’ll love the Vera Wang V563 glasses in ‘Henna’. This colourway takes us back to the 70s and 80s when acetate eyewear was all the rage and soft nude/browns were the fashion lover’s uniform. Think librarian vibes crossed with granny chic crossed with Barb from Stranger Things…
The warm tones will complement your skin tone, while the gradient effect gives you a low-key, barely there geek chic look. These are perfect for everyday wear, whether you’re heading into the office or some underground hipster speakeasy.
In the market for a bargain? Don’t miss the Icon G5276 gradient glasses for women, designed with an extreme cateye silhouette for added drama. Elevate a budget outfit instantly, and add a funky edge to an otherwise drab wardrobe.
Style with your office attire, little black dress or your Sunday best. Whether you’re headed to a meeting, a concert or just your local beer garden, these frames are totally on-trend and wearable at the same time.
Even more of a steal are these SelectSpecs T8807 frames, with a plastic frame front and lightweight metal temples for complete ease and comfort. Now these really are your everyday specs, and can be styled with dressy or casual numbers.
There are three different colours to choose from, but we think the ‘Black/Clear’ colourway is the best one to choose if you want to rock the gradient glasses trend.
Seventh Street 7A 541
Get your hands on the Seventh Street 7A 541 gradient glasses if you love warm colours. Ideal for warmer skin tones, this beautiful brown / pink gradient is extremely flattering and can add colour to your face.
Wear with a soft pink lippy in the summer, or a dark berry mauve in the winter. Versatile enough to be styled with an all-year round wardrobe, you’ll get plenty of wear with these.
