Sunglasses are a regular accessory during the spring and summer months.  You have a pair for sporting activities and every day, how about a nice pair of sunglasses that you can wear for special occasions like an outdoor wedding, graduation, or outdoor party. This spring there are four high-fashion trends to follow when choosing a special pair of sunglasses.

FOR WOMEN:

MIRROR

This is unlike mirrored sunglasses like the Aviator, these mirrored sunglasses are mirrored all over.  Perfect for a glamourous night out these ultra-shiny sunglasses are very ornate and futuristic.  Pair them with an over the top cocktail dress for a late afternoon soiree.

RETRO MODERN CATEYE

Think 1950s cat eye sunglasses with a very modern design accents like pointy lenses and very small frames in fun colors in acetate frames.  Try this trendy pair with a sporty and colorful look while on vacation. 

DROP TEMPLE

Another vintage frame to consider is the drop temple.  A drop temple is where there is a sudden drop in the handles where the frame meets the handle.  It’s typically a tinted, oversized lens giving a very 70s vibe.

SQUARE

Square sunglasses are not a unique trend or shape but this season they have unique frame that are sophisticated and artistic flair.

FOR MEN:

ROUND VINTAGE

Retro-inspired lenses are making a serious comeback this spring for men. Round vintage sunglasses this season nod to the ‘90s, with smaller-framed styles channeling the grunge look.

D-FRAMES

The D-shape frame is also making a comeback. Typically reserved for surfers, the style is becoming more and more popular thanks to their futuristic feel and sporty character.

OVERSIZED AVIATORS SUNGLASSES

Aviator sunglasses never go out of style but the shape has gone through some changes over time. This season it's oversized, perfect for adding a cool edge to a simple outfit.
