New Year, New Eyewear: 5 Unique Glasses to Try

If your New Year’s Resolution is to update a tired wardrobe, eyewear is a great place to start. Accessorising is an easy way to experiment with different styles, narratives and trends; and quirky or unique glasses can give you the edge in any season.

Whether you’re inspired by catwalk clobber or you prefer something much more low-key, there’s a frame to fit every wardrobe personality. Here are 5 unique glasses styles to try in 2023!

Brightly Coloured Frames

Give your wardrobe a total refresh by injecting lots of bright colours in SS23. This year, we’re seeing lots of optimism in fashion, and the runways are incorporating plenty of bold hues to get us all excited for spring.

The shade to keep an eye on is the Pantone® Colour of The Year, Viva Magenta. This is an empowering colour to uplift the free spirit and looks great on all skin tones. Get the look with the Kensie ELEMENT specs, featuring patterned temples and a modern frame front.

Super Nerd Specs

Geek chic has always been hot, but this year we’re seeing the return of round rimmed glasses as inspired by the super nerds of the 1920s, and then later in the 1970s. You can go bold with a thick black frame front, or take a slightly more subtle approach with a timeless tortoiseshell pattern.

The pocket friendly Infinity YKW0055 frames are perfect for standing out from the crowd…
