Okay, so we’ve ogled all the ombre there is to ogle. Grabbed all the gradient glasses we can grab. And tried all the two-tone lenses there are to try in the eyewear world. Now it’s time for the classic colour fade to move over.
While gradients will always remain a classic, there’s a new trend in town and it’s an unexpected celebration of colour. This year it’s all about split lens sunglasses. Maybe a few years back, this would have been seen as heavy-handed or clumsy, with smooth ombre being the main attraction. But right now, it’s the only way to rock the tinted lens.
Here are some of the best split lens sunglasses styles to get your hands on for 2020 – and they’re bound to get you noticed.

These Fendi FF 0342/S shades are the epitome of summer, with warm honeyed yellow lens combined with mustard temple tips. Finished with grey split-screen detailing in the corners, they’re the perfect pair of glasses to give your SS20 wardrobe a fun, contemporary edge.
Featuring a narrow framefront and petite lenses, these also channel the skinny microshades of the 90s. A must for vintage fashion fans…
