Spring 2016: Eyewear Style

Eyewear Style

Spring is in the air! We’ve been experiencing some trends such as, rain showers, peeks of warm sunshine, buds on trees, the start of flower blossoms … a transition is evident. But that’s not the only important transition about now. Your winter eyewear should be giving way to spring eyewear. Here are some eyewear trends worth giving a shot this spring:

One word: Color. A lot of people opt for black, brown, and tan colors for their frames. This spring, when you’re browsing for new glasses at your VSP eye doctor’s office, look for glasses with a pop of color. Reds are really popular right now!

Cause a Scene. Be seen in aviator sunglasses. They’re here to stay. Go all the way incognito and add a mirror coating to the lenses. Beyond cool.  And, you can always ask during your eye exam about how to get your sunglasses filled with prescription lenses.

Get Your Geek On. For all you computer users out there, embrace your inner nerd by making a bold statement in thick, square, tortoise frames or show off your librarian side with a slender wire rim in soft gold.
