Now that school is back in session, there’s finally time to catch up on trends you may not have noticed while enjoying your summer vacation and running around to finish kids’ back-to-school shopping. Fall fashion from the neck down gets a lot of attention, but don't forget that your choice of eyewear may also affect your whole look this season; now’s the perfect time to explore fresh styles.
While fairly timeless, most eyeglasses can carry you through several seasons. That said, just like clothing, certain design features on eyewear become more or less popular as fashions change. From fashion’s front row, here are some fall eyewear trends that are making a mark.
This season, dark is in, and one of the most popular prints you’ll see is tortoiseshell. The color palette isn’t as important as the print, so go with what looks best with your skin tone and hair color. A rectangular tortoiseshell frame looks great on any face shape and, if you’d like something a little more subtle, an English-style frame could be the ticket. The keyhole bridge keeps the style classic and timeless. These frames are light, so they're perfect for everyday wear.
White or clear frames
One of the most popular trends of the year, the neutral-hued frame’s popularity is carrying over into fall. Though the style looks great in various shapes and sizes, you’ll see a lot of white or ‘crystal’ frames that are oversized, square and unisex. This shape works best with face shapes that are heart, oval and round.
Retro oversized aviators
You can thank Kendall and Kylie for reviving this trend. These frames pay homage to the sassy '70s and are a bold statement to go along with any fall look, but they're best when matched with an equally bold outfit.
Because wire frames are thin, they're more elegant and softer than most other looks this season. Their minimal stylings can also be fragile, so they're a design suited best for indoors. This style with a circular or square frame coordinates nicely with your favorite office outfits.
The cat eye is not a new look, but it is back — and it's back with a roar! Arguably the hottest trend this season, you can rock the cat eye with a bold-colored frame (burgundy is a knockout color for fall) or a classic black and still be on trend.
