Did you hear the great news!? Out with the old are the tiny sunglasses which offer little to no coverage, and look pretty terrible on most face-shapes! Back in are our beloved Jackie O-styled frames. A few of the big trends this summer that are also appropriate for classy ladies of our ageless generation are:
Hexagon Lenses-basically every unorthodox lens shape works this summer, but hexagon is likely the most flattering to most faces, and add a futuristic accessory to play off in other wardrobe pieces. They’re the perfect blend between round and square.
Round Lenses-these allow for the big, Jackie O-style frames, which give a dash of nostalgia to an ever-increasing trending towards modernism and futurism.
Sunglasses with a Chain-once relegated to the “old cat lady” have made a comeback. As our handbags continue to shrink and our hands busy with smart phones, the chain has become the stylish way to manage your eyewear in situations where you will be constantly putting on and off. (Think traveling for one.) We’re listing a few of our favorite sunglass chains below.
Translucent Frames-why spend all that time and effort on glowy makeup and healthy skin, just to pile on top a heavy, dark frame!? This is a great way to brighten the eye area of the face, as they refract light and go with the glow.
Tinted Lenses-many of these harken to the disco glamour of the 70s, or the current ‘festival’ trends we see coming out of the fashion petri dish that is Coachella, Burning Man and the like. They’re a wonderful way to coordinate your swimwear or with other accessories while wearing the subdued neutral palette that is so big right now.
