Don’t worry! we’ve got you covered. Take inspiration from the spring-summer 2018 catwalks, which are rife with exciting new propositions from runway and street style trends.
In order to steer you in the right direction, we narrowed down the search to select styles that range from the affordable to the luxe, should you want to feed your shade obsession.
Red lens Sunglasses
Just like 2016 was the year of translucent yellow lenses, the time has come for red-colored sunglass lenses to make an appearance. See-through lenses have never been chic as opposed to dark frames, they invite curious looks and they say that you want to be seen. Other than red, pink and purple shades will also dominate the trend.
Long and Skinny Sunglasses
An exception to the oversized ruled in the spring/ summer 2018 eyewear trends is quite a few frames that were long and skinny – a trend heavily supported by Instagrammers/ models like Bella Hadid. These included skinny but still very arched cat eye frames at Prada, as well as rounded cat eyes and rectangular glasses with a metal frame at Miu Miu.
Marble Tortoiseshell sunglasses
Tortoiseshell is classy and easy to style, no matter your favorite sunglasses shape. Get a pair of horn-rimmed cat-eyes to show your sophisticated style, or get creative with amber, yellow or even blue tortoiseshell patterns. All tortoise shell glasses attract attention but ladies who look for something more exclusive can wear the oversized cat eye frame, in a subtle tortoise shell pattern.
Small round-frame Sunglasses
Beatles are forever, and so are the tiny, round sunglasses popularized by John Lennon. The lenses are particularly close together, and a thorough look revealed a double bridge.We saw a few interesting takes on this iconic look as part of summer 2018 sunglasses trends. These eyeglasses are hip and bold, a perfect choice for a fashionista.
Double Bridge Sunglasses
Add a glam to an otherwise look with a double bridge on sunglasses is a late ‘60s design element that does not look outdated, and can work exceptionally well with the sunglasses designs. We saw double bridges on many of the spring/ summer 2018 sunglasses.
We return in the 1960’s, in the Twiggy and Audrey Hepburn era. The iconic accessory of the era is oval shaped glasses in a white plastic frame with contrasting black lenses. This year’s shape is of no importance, from classic oval and large round glasses, to the “back to childhood” option in the heart shaped sunglasses.
There’s a plethora of styles for you to choose from – don’t shy away & have fun exploring all of this season’s best eyewear trends. Get a pair for every trend, or combine more trends in one sleek pair of jaw-dropping shades that will complete your outfits for the coming season.
