Fashion trends are constantly changing, and the same is true for sunglasses. This year we’re pleased to say goodbye to the tiny sunglasses that offer little to no coverage. What’s worse is they look pretty bad on most face shapes, so not only are you not looking your best, but you’re continually squinting throughout the day, creating new fine lines and wrinkles. Back in style are our beloved Jackie O-styled frames. A few of the trendy sunglasses this summer that are also appropriate for classy ladies of our ageless generation are:
Cat-Eye - Cat-eye sunglasses have been around since, well, forever, and they’re back and better than ever this year. Check them out in colorful frames, simple black, or a lovely tortoiseshell to match your outfit.
Round Lenses – These allow for the oversized, Jackie O-style frames, which give a dash of nostalgia to an ever-increasing trend towards modernism and futurism.
Sunglasses with a Chain – once relegated to the “old cat lady,” this design has made a comeback. As our handbags continue to shrink and our hands become busier with smartphones, the chain has become the stylish way to manage your eyewear in situations where you’re continually taking your glasses 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 cover it with a heavy, dark frame? This is a great way to brighten the eye area of the face because they refract light and go with the glow.
Colorful frames – many of these are a throwback to the 90s. They’re an excellent way to coordinate your swimwear or other accessories or add a dash of color to a swimsuit that’s a neutral color.
As we’re coming into the summer, it’s essential to have a pair (or more!) of trendy sunglasses that can keep your eyes healthy when the sun is at its brightest. Find a pair that kicks up your fashion game, as well as a pair that offers day-to-day protection, helping to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
