Hot Trends in Eyewear for Men

What are the latest fashion trends in eyewear for men?

Nothing makes a man feel more “cool” than wearing the perfect pair of sunglasses!  The most up-to-date and fashionable men’s sunglasses take classic designs and make them bolder, using strong colors and thicker frames.  Matte finishes are the latest trend to show up for men.  Camo prints are also very popular.  Get ready men, you will soon be seeing the newest aviators coming out with the retro double bar nose piece!

Your choice in sunglasses can even enhance your performance while playing your favorite sport. With lenses that are specially designed for fishermen, golfers, and tennis players you will be able to look stylish while also eliminating glare so you can perform your best!

If you are interested in wearing the cutting edge style in ophthalmic eyewear, you should consider selecting a pair of geek chic eyeglasses in a matte finish.  Natural materials are also huge this year, with wood, bamboo, and other organic materials being incorporated into eyewear. Crystal clear plastic frames are also showing up on the faces of very stylish men. Even rimless glasses have an edge with their “cool” temple designs.

Hot Trends in Eyewear for Women

What are the latest fashion trends in eyewear for women?

Big is back in ophthalmic eyewear!  Larger eyeglasses have been coming on the scene over the past year or so.  This is not your 1980’s big, however, as many of the newest frames we are seeing are works of art for the face. Think combinations of plastic and metal in one frame.  Add lots of color, especially greens and turquoise.  Try a little whimsy with a touch of animal print. And, of course, don’t forget to add your “bling” and lots of detail on the temples. 

For a more simple, professional look, the well-dressed woman is selecting a “geek chic” frame made especially for women.  Unlike their masculine counterpart, a woman’s geek chic eyeglass will have a softer curve, an arching brow line, and flattering colors and finishes to compliment a woman’s complexion.

While eyeglasses are going larger, sunglasses for women are getting smaller.  The “oversized frame” is giving way to a medium frame.  We are still seeing fun colors and interesting details on the temples.  Organic materials are showing up on all eyewear as our country embraces the idea of “going green.”

Eyewear is “jewelry” that you wear every day.  It is the first thing that people see when they look at your face.  Selecting eyewear is your opportunity to make a statement and let your personality shine through.  Build your eyewear “wardrobe” so that you have different frames to match your mood, or your outfit!
