5 Eyeglasses Trends to Follow, Manhattan, New York

Since about 64% of Americans wear glasses, it’s no wonder that there are so many trendy styles of eyeglasses to choose from. If you’re ready to go for something less traditional with your next pair, check out these five current trends.

5 Stylish Types of Glasses

1. Aviators

Aviators used to be confined to sunglasses, but they’re now making their way into clear glasses. They have a vintage feel, harkening back to vintage pop-culture touchstones like Top Gun. They’re equally popular among men and women, making them a versatile choice.

2. Colorful Tints

eyeglassesFashion tints aren’t just for celebrities anymore. They have a much lighter tint than sunglasses, so you won’t have to worry about these glasses obscuring your eyes. They add a fun dash of color to your outfit and will definitely make you stand out in a crowd.

3. Clear Frames

Glasses with clear frames are making a comeback, perhaps because they’re almost invisible from afar. They’re also a good choice if you’re worried that your glasses might clash with your wardrobe. These eyeglasses look best with little makeup (so it won’t smear on the frames) and light-colored clothes that highlight your eyeglasses.

4. Geometric

Geometrically shaped frames offer nostalgia while still looking cool, youthful, and fun. The most common shape is round, but you can also opt for more daring shapes, including hexagons, octagons, decagons, and dodecagons.

5. Wire Frames

For a while, plastic frames were the most popular trend, leaving metal behind. However, wire frames are coming back. They can be worn with almost anything and are sleek and modern. Gold is particularly trendy, but you can also go with silver or colored frames.
