Glasses are one of the accessories that people really notice, so when it comes to choosing frames, you will no doubt want the latest glasses styles to keep your look up to date. Here are some styles of glasses that are on-trend at the moment, which you might want to consider next time you update your style.
Some of the latest glasses trends aren’t necessarily new styles; they’re vintage looks that have been revived and given a modern twist.
Aviator glasses are a huge trend at the moment, not only in Australia but across the globe, and the rule with these is the bigger the better. While aviator glasses, also known as pilot glasses, have a distinctive look, they can suit a variety of face shapes. Oval and round faces can look great with big aviator glasses or sunglasses, while those with more angular faces can suit smaller frames made from thin wire.
Another vintage look that’s big at the moment is cat eye glasses. These types of glasses are very evocative of the 50s and 60s, so if you like vintage styles, they are perfect.
If the vintage look doesn’t appeal, more modern, geometric shapes are another popular style at the moment. You don’t have to go for something too unusual and angular, the classic square Ray Bans are on-trend and simple, and suit most people’s style.
It’s not just the shape of glasses that give you an up to date style. The colour and type of frame you choose are important too. At the moment, there’s a big trend for clear frames, which give you a cool, almost futuristic style. You can also choose clear acetate frames that have a slightly brown or rose tinge you prefer.
Thick rimmed glasses are also very popular right now, and while many people go for black frames, statement colours like red or green also look modern and help you stand out from the crowd.
Some people with strong features don’t suit dark or coloured frames, so if you’d prefer something more subtle, you could go for wire frames. These have a cool vintage style, and tend to look good on most people, as well as being lightweight and comfortable.
