Check out the latest looks recommended by SmartBuyGlasses this season.
Trendy & Transparent
Transparent frames are a great example of a classic frame style given a modern day twist. A major trend in the 1950s, when plastic frames first came on the scene, transparent rims have been rejuvenated and are one of the hottest trends this summer. Light, trendy and refreshing, transparent frames will give a breath of fresh air to any outfit. To be sure to make a statement, choose thick frames and unique shapes.
Rim or no rim? No need to decide – Go semi-rimless!
Semi-rimless sunglasses and glasses are hotter than ever this summer. Think chunky, think round, think bold. Upping their game since the classic Ray-Ban Clubmaster model, these unique frames inject a flare of fashion into any outfit. Semi-rimless frames work best with bold colours or funky patterning, making them the ideal accessory to your hip summer get –ups, and great for giving your look a retro edge all year round.
Attention to Details
Unique features on your sunglasses can really step up your fashion game. Popular features this spring & summer include a bold brow bar, shiny techni-coloured frames, flower embellishments, and side shields. Whether it’s for decorative or functional purposes, these trendy add-ons are sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
Round and Rockin’
Round sunglasses were all the rage back in the swinging sixties – once John Lennon donned these iconic frames, no self-respecting hippy would be seen without a pair. Having fallen out of fashion for decades, round frames are making a huge comeback, with several major brands getting in on the action, building on the aesthetic of the original round frame sunglasses by using thick frames and unique patterning. The results, at once classic and modern, are an absolute must-have this festival season.
All About Textures
Textured frames have been a major hit on the cat walk this year, and look set to be the next big thing in eyewear trends, with classic frames being reinvented with numerous different textures and materials. Ray-Ban is in pole-position for this trend with their velvet Ray-Ban Chris and denim Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. This trend is sure to catch on so watch out for the latest texture sunnies.
Mirror your reflection
Summer is all about bright colours, and the easiest way to brighten up your look this year is mirrored lenses. Fun, funky, and fresh, these multi-coloured lenses took the fashion world by storm in 2014, and this year they are back bigger and brighter than ever before. Mirrored lenses are at the cutting edge in both fashion and function. The coating of mirrored lenses reduces the amount of light passing through the lens, giving your eyes added protection from harmful UV Rays, whilst the vibrant coloured lenses look effortlessly cool with any outfit. This summer think florescent blue with matching frames, or contrasting your frame and lens colour to get a totally unique look that will be turning heads wherever you go.
