They’re fashion, they’re polished, they’re cool, they’re funky, and they come in so many designs to match each and everyone’s personal style, it’s fantastic. Shopping for a pair of great spectacles these days is a lot of fun.
Here are a few soaring styles that will have you falling this fall!
The retro designs
are still going strong. Thick rims are in, with a more wide variety of shapes, not just the classic ‘Mad Man’ inspired black wayfarers thick rimmed spectacles.
inspired eyewear, of even bolder colours, and a redesign of the thin rimmed glasses that 70s French girls used to wear. Think retro shape in those 90s thin metallic rims.
Simplicity and classical elegance are the dominant styles of this trend. In 2016, half round is the new round for men. For women, large frames are continuing on into the next season – the only difference: They’re rounder and more delicate.
