Spring is finally here! Curious what type of sunglasses you should be investing in this year? We already discussed swimwear trends, now let`s talk about sunglasses! I would just say Colors and Shapes! All kinds of shapes that are so iconic for the season, like cat eyes and rectangles, bold oversized proportions, bright, neon frames made of plastic, colored translucent shades. Honestly, it was really hard to write this post, I wanted all of them when I went through online stores!
CAT EYE SUNGLASSES
The star design element of the spring 2018 sunglasses is the cat eye frame. This shape is a mainstay in sunglasses design because it elongates the face beautifully. The face-flattering design is undoubtedly chic and easy to wear, whatever your face shape. This season we can see cat eyes in all manner of variations, along with some rounded and rectangular shapes, and the materials they were made of ran the gamut from plastic to metal to acetate. We can see other shapes and designs as well, with the most unique ones featuring interesting and unusual shapes, sci-fi vibes, or lots of appliques.
Large Cat Eye Frames. The oversized take on these glasses also has a retro flair that is always stylish (D&G, Bvlgari, Fendi, Thierry Lasry)
Rectangular Cat Eye Frames. If you want to enjoy retro-classic eyeglass style, but aren’t quite ready for its extreme form, you can certainly rock the more rectangular option (Vogue, Haight, Dita Eyewear, Saint Laurent)
Extreme Cat Eye Frames. Some designers created cat eye frames that were a little more angled and sharp, which actually made them look sharper and more interesting. Like Prada`s Matrix-style, Louis Vuitton`s sporty and more retro.
As I said before main accents for this season`s sunglasses trends are shapes and colors. We see a lot of Heart-silhouette frames in different designers. Also bold oversized Butterfly sunglasses for glamorous, high fashion look. Hexagon-frames like Chloe’s Poppy sunglasses blend of 1970s styles in a slim shape for Resort 2018, or Karen Walker wide plastic Hexagon-frames. If you’re feeling futuristic (or retro-futuristic), you can opt for some Sci-Fi inspired spring 2018 sunglasses. These unique eyewear designs will make you look like you’re some kind of space fashion icon. Gucci retro-futuristic eyewear designs that cover the whole top half of the face, looking like some sort of robotic shield or personal screen.
Aviators are still in style! Modernized versions of this traditional style have become quite popular! Choose an oversized pair with colored lenses and even with a double bridge is a late ‘60s design element that does not look outdated now, or out of the wire over the bridge of the nose. (Dior, Cartier, Gucci, Chloe)
Sleek Flat Top Sunglasses that are perfect for creating a stand-out look. With a variety of Flat Top Aviator Sunglasses and Oversized designs, Flat Top Glasses are true statement makers (Ganni, Stella Mccartney)
Round frames are both classic and quirky and they make a fun fashion statement. As a cat eye, we can see round-shaped sunglasses in different variations.
Small Round Frames
The Beatles are forever, and so are the rounded popularized by John Lennon.
There were wire-frame sunglasses in all shapes and sizes at Miu Miu, Valentino, Givenchy, Le Specs)
Oversized Round Frames were also spotted all over the runway, in addition to the more angular and pointy designs. (Fendi, Dior, Chloe, Gucci)
It is not a primary trend, but the frames are part of the spring/ summer 2018 eyewear trends for anyone who likes to appear a little edgier (Gucci, Stella Mccartney, Fendi, Saint Laurent).
The arms of the glasses also get an accented unusual shape, it is a drop in the handles, between the frames and the ears which looks really unique (Fendi, Victoria Beckham)
Allow yourself to become part of the label. Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses came in the form of lenses shaped like D&G. Christian Dior were just less extreme, with “J’ADIOR” on top of the frames.
If you like colors, mixed patterns, then the printed acetate frames some of the most creative designer’s trends should be your first choice. You can create very bright stylish looks (Versace, Gucci, Thierry Lasry, D&G).
Transparent frames for the spring/ summer 2018 sunglasses for all kinds of shapes. Versace showed both pastel blue and pink transparent frames, using the same colors for the lenses. Gucci’s offerings were the 80s` in vibrant colors, coming to add a retro vibe to our summer looks (Stella Mccartney, Valentino,
Rimless sunglasses look modern and futuristic, and they come in both colored lenses and transparent ones (Givenchy, Illesteva, Gucci, Retrosuperfuture).
In this Sunglasses, you don`t need to decorate yourself with anything else. Take a look at frames with pearls. In this case, it looks very modern and stylish (Valentino, Gucci).
They are very practical, you always can use them to check your make up! (Gucci, Freda Banana, Le Spec, Petrosuperfuture)
If you rock a more casual style, you’ll be happy to know that the spring/ summer 2018 eyewear trends have lots of options for you for more sporty sunglasses that will fit well (Stella Mccartney, Louis Vuitton)
