As everyone knows, the main priority for them is in the protection of your eyes against the sun’s rays. However sunglasses hold the distinction of being one of the few safety accessories that can not only reflect a unique personality but can enhance and add to the appeal of the wearer. With the addition of designers stepping in to make sunglasses look fantastic we now see new materials that can be mixed and matched with your mood and moment.
Funky with a hot splash of geometric is now appearing on runways. These can be simple all the way to complex with the addition of colored lenses. Materials can include plastic or metallic, tweaked or squared. The trending term is ‘funky’ and you can take it as far as you want.
Aviator sunglasses have been a mainstay for a number of years and it doesn’t look like they are going away. Designers love them, celebrities depend on them and there is something that just exudes ‘cool’ about this style.
Butterfly wing sunglasses with tinted lenses began last year with a vengeance and are continued to be seen this year. Some of the more extreme butterfly in oversize plastic and a hint of metallic or glam on the sides is something that is newer this year.
Flat topped glasses that have that almost geeky quality are now hot. Who knew? This year there are artistic additions to the flat top area itself and they can be seen in geometric or elaborate designs. The rims can be clear, tinted, or heavy and dark….the choice is all yours.
Cat-eye glasses are one of the most popular on the red carpet. This style may have started in years gone by but it has made a comeback with the look of today. Small, large, half or full rim, the catty cat appearance is being shown in so many colors and materials that it is no wonder that it is still hot.
