The summer months are certainly in full force right now.

The warm weather comes with new trends in eyewear – men’s eyewear to be exact.

Some of the freshest eyewear pieces have been spotted on various menswear catwalks for Spring/Summer ’18, including the likes of Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Kenzo.

The top styles that were prominent in the shows include rounded metal specs, blacked out shield styles and colourful rimmed sunnies.

Come with us as we check out some of the most stylish eyewear styles to be seen in this season.

Blacked Out & Rectangular

As shown on the Balanciaga Men’s SS/18 catwalk, it is clear that blacked out rectangular styles are in vogue at the moment.

These shades have recently come back into fashion – it is safe to say that they definitely look the part.

So why not embrace your inner Bond and try a pair of rectangular shaped sunnies for yourself this season?

Rounded Metallics

The new trend of metallic rounded specs were evident on the Emporio Armani Spring/Summer 2018 Mens catwalk – we love this eyewear style!

The thin frames help to give a slick, seamless feel and the metallic lenses add a much-needed rock star vibe.
