THE ’90S SKINNY STAPLE
These tiny sunglasses appear way too small and would provide very little UV protection, but that shouldn’t stop you from going small in 2020. A staple piece that was worn by Justin Timberlake and Brad Pitt in the ‘90s, this should definitely be on your list this summer. Try looking out for clean, slightly upswept silhouettes and dark lenses to nail the high-fashion trend.
A trend list on eyewear cannot miss the aviators. Timeless and flattering, aviator sunglasses have always been a popular choice for summer eyewear. From runways to thrift stores, you can get these anywhere. Get yourself a pair of vintage oversized aviators for your very own interpretation of Leonardo Di Caprio in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.
D-frame sunglasses are known for their design and for bringing in a unique perspective in the eyewear trend. While other styles usually come in an oval look, D-frame sunglasses are instantly recognisable from the sharp shape that gives a straight-out-of-afuture-film vibe.
Geometric sunglasses are exactly what the name suggests. Different geometric shapes such as hexagons, octagons and decagons are trending, and with a slight throwback to the vintage eras, this trend comes in bright and bold colours with unusual frame shapes. For those who want to try something beyond the norm, this one is for you.
A colourful pair of sunglasses delivers an authentic way to round off your eyewear collection. The coloured frame adds an unexpected pop to any outfit, and give your look an element of fun without going overboard. These glasses scream summer and you can pull off the easiest look with a Cuban-collared shirt, a pair of white shorts, and white sneakers.
The frame style is what defines activewear glasses. For years, wraparound frames have been limited to sportsmen but now, they are making their way on to the runways too. While buying these functional pieces, pay close attention to the frame shape, lens type and other factors that will help you walk away with sporty sunglasses that up your style game.
In the 1950s, RayBan popularised wayfarers with its design and aesthetic, by replacing the same old metal eyewear. Since then, its popularity has continued to fluctuate, but the style has made a comeback in the recent years. These retro glasses are usually accompanied with a faintly-coloured lens, and perfectly suit any casual wear or summer look
Thanks to John Lennon, the round-framed sunglasses were an absolute hit in the ‘70s. In fact, these sunnies have been part of all fashion eras. The round frame trend is for those who like their sunglasses to have a vintage look with a hint of versatility.
