Hot Trend: Transparent Frames

Carrera-6000L sunglasses

Just because we’re saying goodbye to summer and heading into cooler climes, doesn’t mean we have to give up on our most loved, most lusted after sunglasses trends. After all, fashion is a never-ending transitional affair and there’s still low lying sun to contend with, right?

Besides finding that perfect winter coat and boots you just can’t resist, it’s time to turn your attention to sunglasses. And what better way to head into the new season than investing in some new shades?

You probably have your Wayfarers and your Aviators ready to wear, perhaps even some candy coloured fun pairs you wore to death during the Kimono wearing festival season. But we’re telling you, clear frames are where the new ‘it’ style to covet and they’re as versatile as they are striking.

Rita Ora effortlessly wears the Carrera 6000L Sunglasses in colour option Crystal (multi- layer Pink) that can be found here and they look amazing.

Why this particular style?

The Transparent trend has been making waves since this time last year when everything from sheer skirts to Lucite clutch bags and PVC pumps appeared full throttle on the catwalk. With everyone from Rita Ora, to Kim K and Rihanna making the trend their own, the style manages that perfect balance between classic shades that aren’t too over the top, but can still be a fun statement piece to add edge to a variety of different outfits.


The trend continues its reign with everything from purses to jackets and waterproofs being transformed into sheer delights. But never fear, if a statement piece of clothing is too much, don’t forget that transparent frames still look eye catching. Opt for strong shapes with thicker frames to really make the most of the trend.

Try the Carrera 600L frame in colour option Aqua (multi-layer Green) as shown below or take a peek at Carrera’s entire range for that up to date look here.

Feeling a little less bold? Try crystal frames for a more subtle way to enjoy.

From totally transparent to more subtle styles, this is not old school plastic you might once remember.  This is chic, refined with slick lines and sophisticated, perfect accompaniments for casual off duty style to formal arrangements and everything in between.
