If you currently wear glasses, you’ll know that they can make a big difference in the way that you look and feel about your appearance. The style you choose can enhance your facial features, complement your skin tone, and even reflect key elements of your personality. However, if you make the wrong choice, you could end up with glasses that don’t suit you and detract from your natural attractiveness. You may even feel self-conscious about your appearance when wearing them.
With countless different brands and styles to choose from, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the prospect of choosing your own glasses. Some types of glasses styles are invariably more desirable than others and knowing what is on-trend for this year can help ensure that you remain fashion-forward. We’ve put together a list of the latest eyeglass trends for 2020 to help you select the right specs.
You probably won’t be surprised to learn that aviators remain one of the most popular styles of eyeglasses this year, and, we suspect, for decades to come. The original design has evolved a little, with more modern styles appearing more rounded than the older, teardrop silhouette. They are still most desirable in metallic hues of gold, rose gold, and steel, but some acetate designs are creeping onto the market.
Cat-eye frames first became popular in the 1950s. With an exaggerated, feline-inspired shape, this style has regularly made an appearance in trends since its inception, but the overall look has continued to evolve. Modern cat-eye frames tend to have larger, rounder lenses that suit a variety of face shapes and have large but soft winging out of the frames. Tortoiseshell remains one of the classic colorways, but there are other bright, bold choices available to help you to stand out from the crowd.
Granted, these glasses aren’t necessarily a specific style, but there is no getting away from the desire for more eco-friendly, environmentally-conscious fashion and this extends to our eyewear. An increasing number of brands, as well as some all-new designers, are now offering glasses made from recycled materials, restoring old frames to their former glory and more in the bid to reduce the carbon footprint of prescription eyewear as much as possible. If you are passionate about saving the planet, then check out some eco-friendly frames.
Retro by nature, rimless glasses offer wearers the ability to enjoy clear vision with minimal impact on their appearance, and we have seen an influx of this style again in 2020. Sleek, understated, and able to be teamed with virtually any outfit, rimless retro is here to stay for at least another year.
Fairly traditional frames with statement arms are one of the hot new trends for 2020 and what better way of combining classic style with a modern twist. Whether you choose funky patterns or embellishments or a striking color, the options really are limitless. If you are feeling brave, choose frames and arms in contrasting shades for a real injection of your personality into your look.
Translucent frames were big in 2019, and they aren’t going anywhere right now. However, rather than sticking with clear acetate, designers are experimenting with a range of translucent tints, including apricots, browns, greys, greens, reds, golds and blues in order to give wearers the chance to customize their style to suit their skin tone and truly enhance their natural beauty.
