Retro, Bold and Sporty Eyewear in 2015
Your eyeglasses should work for you in every way, from increased or corrected vision to how they make you look. If you are in need of new glasses or just want an extra pair to pump up your look, take these trends into consideration.
Fall 2015 fashionhas an air of retro inspiration from 1950s chic to 1960s fun and 1970s carefreeness. Some of the top wearable trends off the runway include fur, fringe, and flair and extend to eyeglass frames. Cat-eye frames are back in a big way, but not the gaudy, over-the-top cat-eyes that Frenchie wore in “Grease.” These cat-eyes give a sexy, feminine, mysterious look that mixes in fun and funk. Round frames are also in, which men and women can indulge in alike. By channeling John Lennon and Yoko Ono the look becomes timeless rather than costume-ish. Big, angular shapes give a shout-out to the disco days. Avoid translucent frames that will make you look like a grandpa and go with a 1970’s-inspired color, like sunflower yellow or lime green, to rock the style.
Another current fashion trend is the use of bold colors and accessories. Whether it’s one statement color or a bright ensemble, your glasses should make a standout performance. Horn-rimmed glasses are the perfect shape to match with a daring color because the thicker top of the frame crosses the bridge of the nose and each eyebrow, but becomes more subtle as it circles the eyes. Classic frame shapes, like varieties of rectangular, are also a great choice for a statement color. Just keep in mind that the color you choose should complement your wardrobe.
While this trend might not have leapt from the runway, active wear has been advancing as a wearable trend. What was once reserved for the gym or yoga class has crossed over to the supermarket, brunch and even work, so athletic-style glasses are joining in. Sunglasses or glasses with tinting serve many athletic endeavors, with shapes that protect the eye from sun and wind alike. And while you can use them if you like, eyewear retainers are optional.
People expect their eyeglasses to not only help them see new fashion trends, but to be a fashionable accessory in their stylish wardrobe. Of course, everyone looks best when they choose a frame that flatters their face, so take into account your face shape, features and hair style as you embrace these trends.
