From fashion week catwalks to an eyewear office near you, many leading designers now have fresh eyewear collections to compliment your spring looks. And while fashion’s biggest week may be over, healthy vision is always in style. April is ‘Women’s Eye Health and Safety Month;” so schedule your annual eye exam and preview the latest eyewear trends at your neighborhood MyEyeDr.
With eyewear maintaining its position as a ‘must have’ accessory, here are fresh trends you’ll see this spring.
Classic florals are blooming in several collections. The RubyX spring 2017 collection nods to spring bouquets with colors and patterns. It’s a feminine look that’s oh so right for the seasonal transition in our wardrobes.
The fashionista’s favorite, ‘cat eye’ continues to be a popular choice this season. The 1950s inspired, retro shape has long prowled runways and has graced the faces of some of the world’s most iconic fashion plates like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Today, Lady Gaga rocks the vintage shape with a very modern twist.
Move over Harry Potter, John Lennon, and all those groovy-licious Carnaby Street Twiggy-types: the round frame is making a bold comeback with fresh colors, tinted lenses, and patterns that will appeal to today’s urban hipsters.
Make eyewear a primary accessory – nothing pops against your clothes like color-coordinated frames that compliment or with what you’re wearing. Selecting a bold frame like “Peter” from Dragon ensures another look for your entrance making moment. Brands like VALENTINO now have a variety of vivid colors and robust patterns that are statement-makers. Buying a set of frames (or two) is an affordable way to update every outfit for the new season.
Book smart savvy arrives in chunky, bold styles that echo the classic square-shaped styles of yesteryear. The looks range from solid colors to standard tortoise; it’s statement eyewear for the strong, silent type.
COLOR / TINTED
As the days grow longer so does the amount of time spent outdoors in the sun. Colored and tinted lenses, while on trend, can also provide glare relief this spring by improving contrast and enhancing depth perception. Many eyewear styles can be fitted with fun, tinted lenses – consult with your eye care professional to learn more about your options.
