Set your sights on great eyewear trends for 2018

The standout trends for eyewear this year showcase the use of popular vintage styles reinvented with a modern twist. The selection is versatile and lends itself to lightweight, artful and comfortable eyewear. Your accessories say a lot about you, so we thought we’d reveal what shapes and colours everyone is in love with this season.

Must have spectacle colour Trend


Translucent

This new trend is a must! Clear plastic frames are light, modern, and being colourless, they are almost invisible from afar.

Tortoise shell

There are so many colour palette variations of this trendy pattern to choose from and it looks good on almost every shape frame. If you’re looking for some zing select a pair with metallic bridge pieces, or variation speckled shades. We have a great selection from Converse or Infinity.

Metal Wire

Refined wire is a trend that exudes grace and confidence and they feel practically weightless on your face.  Add shine with golden materials that punctuate patterns and add interest to foundational shapes.

Blushes

Blushes are trendy and provide an effortless look. They create a softer enhancement for your features. Soft pink is now a fashion staple and has proven to be an especially flattering shade that has joined the collection of neutral eyewear frame hues for anyone looking for a change from standard black or brown styles.

Round frames are best suited for people with square faces, which soften the jaw line and balance the rest of the face. Round frames are great for those who want a professional edge but want to remain an individual.
