All Eyes On Spring 2011 Eyewear Trends

10 Mar

Full of chic shapes, dazzling details and warm colors, eyewear this spring is making a statement. From geek chic looks to retro influences and sporty inspirations, there are endless options that offer something for everyone.

Women’s eyewear trends include:

Retro Prep

With influences from the ‘50s and ‘60s, this trend is one part sass and one part class. Cat-eyes are still on top – in extreme or relaxed, teardrop styles. Bold browline frames are must-haves for geek chic prepsters, and trendsetters will drool over new, round shapes taking center stage. Ladylike hues of tortoise, pinks, creamy neutrals and pearly finishes are fresh, while vivacious hues or pops of color are flirty.

Disco Diva

The decade ruling fashion this spring is, without a doubt, the 1970s. Disco queens will delight in the groovy eyewear options that have burst onto the scene. When it comes to sunglasses this season, bigger is better and the squoval (squared oval) is king. Luscious berry tones, tonal and marbleized effects, bedazzled details, gradient lenses and rose or amber tinted lenses are quintessential.

Urban Edge

Sporty and downtown styles collide for a look that is uber edgy and chic. Smoky gradients, bold metal accents and luxurious leathers add daring details to shields, aviators and geometric shapes. Adrenalin junkies and daredevils get their fix in mixed-media frames, fashion forward cut outs and rebellious blacks. Mirrored or blacked out lenses add panache and show off a futuristic vibe perfect for any fierce fashionista.

The latest eyewear looks for men include:

Modern Heritage

Taking cues from simpler times, eyewear this season is all about clean, classic styles from the past with a modern touch. Round frames – a la John Lennon – have emerged as a key shape for specs and sunglasses in wire or plastic. Geek chic browline and wayfarer styled frames continue to rule the streets and are more dashing than ever. Keyhole bridges also add charming detail to these dapper styles.

Street Pop

Eyewear this spring is sporty and spicy, giving men the perfect chance to pump up their style. Shields are an absolute must, as well as colored lenses that add spunk to typical guy frames. Tough metal details or matching black frames and lenses are ultra sleek and mysterious, while floating lenses take frames into the styles of tomorrow. Thick plastics, white, blue and two-toned frames keep things fun and fresh.

Worldly styles, textures and details prove to be great inspirations for men’s fashion, especially when it comes to eyewear. Frames this spring are sultry, yet earthy, with intriguing details and natural colors. Rustic wooden frames or accents and rich leathers make the look chic and effortless. Aviators command attention in both classic and updated styles, with the navigator (squared aviator) showing face as well.
