Some of the runway looks at the Fashion & Design Festival this summer seemed straight out of the 70s, largely because of the blend of textures. Go-to fabrics for wrapping up in cooler temps include velour, faux fur, and suede. You can use textured brushed acetate frames and frames that blend different materials to play up the retro look.

Thigh-high and ankle boots

This fall’s trends will pull you in two different directions—should you take things up a notch with thigh-high boots or keep things down-to-earth with ankle boots? As with boots, eyeglass frames are all about what you pair them with. With a laid back style all their own, simple, practical frames will go with anything and take you anywhere.

Futuristic metallics

Nothing lifts your spirits like a metallic finish as the days get darker. We’re happy to hear it because this year no one will bat an eye if you're sporting sequins well before the holidays for a shiny, futuristic look. Silver frames follow in the transparent trend's footspets perfectly, offering subtle colour with maximum impact.

Bold belts

A belt is the key to accentuating your waist and adding that finishing touch to a look. And this fall, they will be front and centre, featuring large buckles, corset closures, and even zippers. Eyeglass frames will follow suit, in exaggerated dimensions and thick lines for an unabashedly sophisticated look—a perfect fit for someone as bold as you.
