5 New eyewear trends to love this season
Bring on the kitsch
Scoot over, regular aviators and the like. This season's all about embracing the bold and quirky, whether it's adorable motifs (Coach's mascot, Rexy) or literal references such as Dolce&Gabbana's leopard-printed frames. Want to make a fiery statement with your OOTD? Opt for Prada's newest ornamented shades from the Ornate collection, featuring two-tone flames framing the front.
Those who love extra pizzazz to their shade game can take on Elie Saab's embellished sunnies with Swarovski crystals in dégradé hues (all hand-applied to the temples), or Jimmy Choo's Gema sunglasses—an Art Deco inspired pair with crystals and pearls decking the lenses. For a subtle look, try Emporio Armani's studded and opaque Evening Closet shades that are practically a work of craftsmanship.
Take a step backward into the matrix with silhouettes from the '90s , including Prada's new cat-eye iteration from the Ultravox collection and Carrera's unisex, full-rim pair. We also love Ray-Ban's Oval Evolve that's lightly tinted with a petite-fit shape—perfect to wear both indoors and outdoors.
Shape up this fall with lenses and frames that come in unique contours. Dolce&Gabbana's octagonal-shaped sunnies take inspo from precious gems with its large faceted lenses and golden prongs, while the trendsetting Saint Laurent's New Wave Loulou is flattering for all face shapes. If you're feeling it, add retro glamour to your outfit with Dior Spirit1 sunnies that come in a tortoiseshell-effect.
Give your look a metallic edge courtesy of futuristic frames, designed for that extra flair. Fendi's Ribbons & Crystals sunglasses are utterly sophisticated with an oversized rimless look coupled with a folded floating bar and crystal-studded screws, while Marc Jacobs' Signature is a super cool pair, featuring negative space in a frame-within-frame concept. If you prefer something more classic, Tommy Hilfiger's square-shaped aviators with a double bridge might just be up your alley.
