There’s no better time than a new season to freshen up your wardrobe, give your look a kick-start and invest in a new pair of stylish specs to transform your appearance. But what’s in trend right now?
Thick frame, ‘geek chic’ glasses have served as the eyewear fashion must-have for forever, it seems. But it’s time for the trusty thick frame to move over. There’s a new kid in town: the aviator. Now you can’t move for pictures of our favourite celebrities sporting aviator eyeglasses in thin metal frames. Everyone from Justin Bieber to Kendall Jenner to Alexa Chung has been seen in a pair – prescription required or not.
However, there are more trends to choose from, besides the aviator. And we’ve rounded up the eyewear trends of the moment below. If you’re on the hunt for some professional, chic glasses that look at home in any office environment or a pair of great glasses to wander in through the city, we’ve got you covered.
Clear and white frames
Clear frame glasses are one of the most popular eyewear trends of the year. Its neutral colour makes it a great choice for any season – which is part of its appeal.
