There are a lot of factors to LOOK out for when choosing eyewear. You’ll want to keep an EYE on the runway to SEE what the current trends are that will soon be gracing the mainstream. This month, we’ll share our thoughts on what’s on the horizon that will certainly have you looking the best, whether you’re strutting down the catwalk or just taking the dog for a walk. Read on!

Oversized and angular are statement pieces that might seem intimidating at first. However, they WORK! This nostalgic look pairs features frames with sleek and updated details in the super sized frames trend. It’s a luxury staple in high-fashion women’s eyewear collections, and it’s migrating into the men’s glasses market, and gender-inclusive lines, as well. Don’t overlook these styles when you’re shopping for your next pair of glasses, because you might be pleasantly surprised to see how they look on you.

These chunky frames are typically made of recycled plastics (which pleases our environmental awareness) and offer an oversized silhouette for a dramatic look. These oversized angular looks are geometric and hued in high-end neutrals like luted mauve and fun tortoise shell. If you’re new to the oversized look, consider them for your prescription sunglasses. Sun means fun, and there’s no reason why you can’t look like you’re fresh from a tropical vacation all year long!

The green trend is picking up steam and we don’t just mean the color. Eco-friendly eyewear is all the rage, with a growing focus on sustainability in fashion. The influence of green eyewear will have a stronghold throughout 2024 as consumers demand more from their products.

That includes eyewear collections made from natural wood, coffee, cork and bio-acetate. Many companies are making a large effort to become more sustainable and reduce their carbon footprint, and eyewear is no exception.

Combining eco-friendly with edgy design, we may be in for a surprise with an updated classic that is making waves. In 2024, the legendary wayfarer design could receive a new reinvention that fuses timeless appeal with contemporary elegance. Transparent frames steal the show, delivering a simple style that matches a wide range of clothes and events. Tinted lenses can add splashes of color to eyeglasses and sunglasses, allowing wearers to express themselves through their eyewear. With bio-acetate or recycled plastic frames, eco-conscious beliefs are aligned with stylish choices. Despite changing fashion trends, traditional black frames remain a sign of ageless sophistication. Wayfarers never left the scene, but boy are they coming back with a bang!
