Milan Fashion Week AW17: Eyewear Trends

Fashion month is over, and we’re getting teary-eyed at the thought of waving goodbye to this action-packed event.

Arguably known for incorporating a ‘more is more’ mentality, always expect the unexpected at Milan fashion week.

The proof has been everywhere during previous fashion weeks, and this month they’ve made no exception.

A city which boasts an impressive selection of high-fashion designers – from the likes of Versace and Dolce & Gabbana – known to never shy away from making a statement.

During previous months, many fashionistas impatiently awaited the countdown towards the highly anticipated event. Eyewear has been featured all over the most memorable, talked-about catwalk shows. And better yet: most of them are totally wearable.

Many creative directors have featured eyewear which can be worn with your everyday, casual and timeless pieces for an effortless look.

From retro cat eyes to oversized aviators, we’re giving you the low-down on the most wearable eyewear trends you won’t be able to resist, straight from the runway.

Cat eyes

A shape which instantly brings an element of old Hollywood glamour and sophistication, cat eyes were the perfect finishing touch to Max Mara’s texture-clashing, minimal look for AW17. Channel the brand’s vision off the catwalk by toning yours down with black, reds and earthy hues for effortless results.

Look no further than this to-die-for pair of Max Mara Occhiali MM IDLE I . Available in five different shades, you can find them now online at for £149.69.



Dolce & Gabbana were the main culprits for this up-and-coming trend at AW17 show.

Featuring thick, oversized frames with a square-like shape, they ultimately add unexpected touch to the brand’s statement pieces off the runway. The perfect accessory to finish off your laid-back weekend style.

At Armani’s highly talked about show, they teamed this style with tailored jewelled-toned velvets and sheer-finished pieces.

Steal the brand’s look with these ultra-stylish Lacoste L179S . Available now online for £122.89.



The New Geek Chic

A trend which has become widely popular for the past few years, Gucci’s AW17 show added a whimsical and eccentric touch to geek chic, to say the least.

Boasting clashing retro wallpaper esque floral prints with everything from tartan patterns to boldly embellished finishes, it’s safe to say the label are keen on making a high impact on the catwalk.

This time, the trend has been updated – think ‘look at me’ statement pieces. But try not to be put off, as they may seem a little excessive.

Minimalists may look to these to re-vamp their wardrobes.  We think they’re great for adding a quirky finish to office wear.

Tap into the label’s pattern-clashing frame of mind with Savannah’s animal print Havana specs  – available now online at for a jaw-dropping price of £12.


Colourful Tints

A trend that’s having its moment. Tinted – or mirrored shades like this faintly rose-tinted pair, spotted on Kendall Jenner, are here to stay.

Copy Fendi by finishing off your everyday look with a subtle pair for ultra-modern results.

To make your search a little less stressful, we give you this vibrant pair of rainbow-coloured Ray-Ban RB2448N.  Available now online for £99.53.
