Forget about make-up! You will only need a pair of outstanding frames to stand out in 2016. The bigger the frame, the trendiest your look will be! There’s a traditional school of thought that says glasses should be unobtrusive. The thinnest the frames, the better, or so it says but that doesn’t apply to 2016 winter and spring eyewear trends. Oversized glasses are a mainstay on the fashion scene and big frames are a staple piece of many a celebrity wardrobe.
Cate Blanchett appeared twice last month in these fantasbig frames from Gucci.
Angelina Jolie’s dissenter look in her new film, “By the sea”.
For many of us, specs are a daily essential but that doesn’t mean that the lucky rest with good sight can’t indulge in this cool accessory too. According to research by the college of Optometrists, 40% already wear or are considering wearing clear lens glasses they don’t need, solely for fashion purposes.
This trend is going to be more noticeable than ever in the forthcoming winter season as the upcoming eyewear fashion for 2016 is everything but discreet. If you are still not convinced, have a look at Gucci’s accessories for spring/summer 2016.

The Antares 1013 is the pair of specs you would expect Robin Wright to wear on Forrest Gump. They are big, light and only suitable for real darers! For only £25, you can’t really say fashion is expensive, can you?
If you are a fan of plastic frames and like giving that little twist to what “everyone is already wearing”, the Antares J501 is the perfect choice for you. They are oversized, sophisticated, chic and sleek. They are unisex and the essential accessory to be a-la-mode next winter.
The Infinity 7003 are as square and big as glasses can get. They are the perfect choice for guys who covet a retro, laid-back look. Wear them to give your office suit that unique touch or to top up your 70’s disco look at the night club. You can’t go wrong with them and they are only £10!
A rimmed, more robust alternative to the previous metal-framed models. The Matrix 821 are chunky, oversized and reflect the celebrities’ tip “bigger is better” perfectly. Available in two more likable colours and with a price tag of just below £30, you are sure to love them at first sight!
The Hallmark E9855 are large and elegant. Their stylish D-shape will ensure you won’t fade into the background when you wear them. Get a trendy Lois Lane look with them and be the heartbraker commuter this winter!
