Sunglasses: 5 bright trends

1 – A pop of colour

It goes without saying that as spring turns to summer, we all want to don our most colourful outfits!

This summer, purple (Very Peri is the Pantone colour of the year!), pink, yellow, and orange will be popular picks.

The point here is to have fun! Create outstanding, bold looks by mixing and matching tones. Colorful frames or lenses are also a sure-fire way to add some pizazz to more somber outfits!

If you want a more subtle approach to the “go bold” fashion statement, or simply want to draw attention to your eyes, you can go with slightly tinted or clear frames!

2 – Go big with oversized sunglasses

The oversized look is one of the many trends that have inspired our opticians for the very first edition of our Editorial Collection.

In addition to being one of the season’s most popular looks, oversized sunglasses will also protect your eyes and skin from harmful UV rays when you’re having fun outdoors.

The best part about an oversized pair of frames? They’re the perfect accessory if you want to look like a Hollywood celebrity.

3 – Angles, angles, angles

Odds are you’re about to see more and more stretched rectangle frames out in the wild. They’re rising in popularity and perfectly suited to longer faces.

Whether you choose rounded or square edges, or even cat-eye style, the strong lines of a pair of angled frames will provide your overall look with a certain je ne sais quoi.

4 – The aviator 2.0

Aviator glasses used to be retro. Not anymore. They’re now the ideal accessory for anyone looking for a timeless style. Square or rounded angles, colourful patterns… anything goes with aviator frames!



Many people falsely believe that a bridge or double-bridge design wouldn’t suit their facial features. But you might be surprised! Book an appointment with one our eyewear experts to explore our vast selection of aviator models. You might find your next favourite pair of sunglasses!

5 – The sporty look

This is a trend that never goes out of style. No longer confined to sports enthusiasts, these types of frames suit every age and lifestyle.

Even though sports frames are designed specifically for athletes, their striking aerodynamic design pair well with practically any fashion style. This is a cutting-edge accessory that’s also an excellent way of adding a bit of whimsy to your attire.

The importance of sunglasses

In addition to being a fashion statement, sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun. Wrap-around sunglasses reduce the risks of:

  • Skin cancer
  • Macular degeneration
  • Cataracts
  • Migraine

Your sunglasses also act as a barrier for debris when you’re outdoors or taking part in your favourite sport.
