Top 5 Eyewear Trends For Summer

In the latest collection from Specsavers, they revealed key trends to invest in from quirky to classic. With an extensive array of colours, shapes and sizes, Specsavers’ Spring/Summer 2020 collection highlights five trends; Vintage Oval, Retro Rectangular, The Round Frame, The New Neutrals, and Pastels.

“Sunglasses might be a small accessory, but they have a large impact. A great pair of sunglasses can change your face, your style, and even boost your mood,” explained Juan Carlos Camargo, Specsavers’ head of frames. “Now that face masks are a recommended part of your daily wardrobe – a great pair of sunglasses are an easy way to inject some personality onto your face. Adding accessories like frame chains, which have seen a huge resurgence over the last couple of years, is both practical and stylish and will add another element to your summer look.”

Whatever your age, gender, face shape or occasion there is a style for every shade of you this summer.

Vintage Oval

Perfect for most face shapes, the soft oval silhouette has been a classic shape within eyewear for years. The contemporary resurgence of this shape for Spring/Summer focuses on using lighter weight frame materials, contrasting colours or accentuating the shape of the frame through finer details.

Retro Rectangular

The rectangular frame with extended profile nods to the evolving interest in noughties nostalgia. This is a versatile unisex option and an understated profile that offers a clean canvas on which to experiment with colour.

The Round Frame

Iconic vintage round silhouettes continue to be a trend, with updated renditions including lighter constructions, neutral tones and more dynamic, geometric profiles. Statement-making yet easy to wear.

The New Neutrals

Soft and subtle tones of brown, khaki and beige are in and add a contemporary twist. These subdued colours are a contemporary embodiment of classic neutral tones, encompassing a warmer, more natural feel.

Pastels

Muted, natural tones create a soft and versatile colour palette. The Pastel trend includes a mix of understated peach, blue and delicate pinks; traditionally bold colours that are made easy-to-wear for everyone.
