Are you looking to update your accessory collection with new sunglasses this summer? Before you start your online shopping, make sure to take a quick look at the most popular trends in eyewear for 2018! Here are our favourites…
With pointy edges and a distinct feminine shape, cat-eye sunglasses are a big trend this year. Spotted in many runway collections including Louis Vuitton, the latest versions feature small lenses and sharp, pointed edges for a sporty look. Inspired by the 1950s and 1960s our Katalina sunglasses have that gorgeous cat eye shape.
Pastel Accents and Jazzed Up Colours
Quirky pastel coloured sunglasses add a contemporary touch to any outfit. Shades in striking hues like electric blue, bright yellow and refreshing green colours are firm favourites this season. Expect to see more of these bright colours on classic frames – like our Mia sunglasses. Apart from monochromatic hues, designs like tortoiseshell and heavy black lines are always a popular but safe option.
Intricately Detailed Frames
Sunglasses featuring elaborate details are all the rage this season. From gold-plated geometric structures to metallic accents and sparkling crystal embellishments, you’ll find a stunning variety of options. Complex and unique, thin printed acetate frames are the best in embellished shades, to add a statement effect to your outfit. Check out the side detail on the arms of our unisex Retro Shades.
Both micro and maxi shades are equally popular on the fashion scene in 2018. While teeny-tiny frames like our Saskia sunnies are more about fashion than function, oversized frames like our Cleo and Kayla sunglasses in circular and angular designs protect the entire area from eyebrows to cheeks. Maxi sunglasses are also popular with lenses slightly separated from outer edges and with dropped temples and arms. Oversized aviator style sunnies with interesting tear drop shapes and mirrored lenses are also very fashionable this year. Go big or go home!
Coloured Lenses and Mirrored Sunglasses
Break away from the basic black shades with captivating mirrored sunglasses as your fashion-forward choice this season. Gorgeous pink lenses (check out our Lexi sunnies) in delicate metal frames are another dressy choice while warm yellow and bronze lenses are casual, but chic. Novelty lens colours for 2018 include yellow, warm pink and bronze. Our Fleur sunnies are super reflective with 7 different colours available. Happy sunglasses shopping!
