Eyeglass Trends For 2016

Posted on

If you love to be stylish and trendy, you may follow fashion trends. However, fashion trends don't end with your clothing, shoes or handbags. Accessories such as eyeglasses change often as well. If you are in the market for a new pair of eyeglasses, you may want to learn about what trends are expected to be popular this year, so you can remain stylish and fashionable. Here are four eyeglass trends that are expected to be popular in 2016.

Pastel Frames

One of the biggest fashion trends this spring is expected to be pastel colors. Pastel shoes, handbags, clothing, wedding dresses and jewelry are expected to be popular this year. However, the trend doesn't end there. Instead of traditional black or brown eyeglass frames, frames featuring pastel colors, such as pink, lavender, powder blue and mint green are expected to be one of the hottest eyeglasses and sunglasses trends of 2016. If you are in the market for new frames, consider trying a colorful pair out. However, if you like the idea of pastel colored frames, but don't want to be too bold, consider a light grey. This isn't too far out of the norm, yet hints towards a lighter color, making it a great compromise.

Geeky Glasses

When it comes to fashion, many things go in cycles. What was popular at one point in time may become unpopular a few years later. However, decades down the road, those old trends may reemerge. One such trendy is large geeky glasses that were popular in the 1980s. In the 1980s, large, neutral-colored eyeglass frames with clear lenses were popular. However, that trend faded and smaller, less obvious frames became more trendy. Well, this year large geeky glasses have cycled back around and are expected to make a comeback.Pairing geeky glasses with a chic outfit can make you look sophisticated and smart. If you are looking for eyeglasses that can be worn to school, work or can help you look professional, large geeky glasses may be perfect for you.

Aviator Frames

Aviator sunglasses rose to popularity after being featured in the "Top Gun" movie. And while this style of sunglasses has remained popular since the movie came out decades ago, it has never crossed over and been used for regular eyeglasses --until now. This year, aviator frame eyeglasses are expected to be popular. If you are bold and daring, consider selecting a thick, colorful aviator frame. This can give off a futuristic vibe. If you prefer to be more subtle, while still being stylish, a thin, metal aviator frame may be ideal for you.

Circular Glasses

The last trend that is expected to be big for eyeglasses in 2016 is circular glasses. These frames are also referred to as Lennon glasses, after singer John Lennon, or Harry Potter glasses, after the fictional book character. These frames are small and circular. Depending on the frame size and color, they can make someone look sophisticated or geeky. However, while these frames are expected to be trendy, that don't look great on every face shape. Circular glasses can make a round face look even rounder and can elongate an oval face. These glasses look best on those who have heart-shaped or square faces.

There are many factors you have to consider when you are shopping for new eyeglasses. You want to find the shape and color of glasses frames that complements your face shape, eye shape and eye color. However, you may also want to find eyeglasses that make a statement. Learning about eyeglass trends can help you find glasses that are fashionable and trendy, making a statement to others that you are modern and stylish.
