Summer is here! Summertime means vacation time, patio-dining in the evening with friends and family and updating your “what to wear” outdoor wardrobe from slacks to shorts. Summer also means it’s time for our annual Top 5 Summer Trends for Eyeglass Frames post!
Here’s what’s “hot” in 2019 Summer eyeglass frame trends.
Say goodbye to 2018’s super slim frame styles! Say hello to ‘70s styled frames with oversize square shapes that are being affectionately called “grandma-chic” by some. For eyeglass frames, its hip to be square this summer!
Last year colorful acetate frames were all the rage. This year, millennial, dusted pink is projected to become the neutral hue that will reign supreme. The warmth of the hue captures the newness of Spring flowers forward into your carefree Summer days and nights. This distinctive color will ensure that you stand out when you walk into a room.
Forget about plain black and brown tortoiseshell eyeglass frames! This season’s frames come in “blush tortoise”, “berry tortoise” and “blue tortoise” to boot. These eyeglass frames have that “flash of sass” that go hand in hand with summer adventuring.
If bursts of bright colors are not your style, the vintage nude frames in light brown, beige and caramel are sure to make your style cut. Amber, honey toned frames with an oval shaping are versatile and match nearly any summer outfit. If you go with a nude colored eyeglass frame, be sure to take your bestie to help you decide which hue best compliments the glowing undertones of your skin.
This year, aviator frames are no longer for sunglasses only! We’re seeing aviator eyeglasses featured in the traditional metal frame shades, but we’re also seeing frames in purples, reds, greens and light blues. Aviator frame lovers will find their perfect pair of aviators for summer, whether they stay with a more traditional aviator eyeglass frame or push boundaries with a red-hot set of colorful aviators.
