Retro Eyewear Fashion is Back
This fashion style has a tendency to make comebacks. So if you are feeling a bit retro-ish, then donning this vintage look is the easiest thing to do. With rimless frames, round frames, tortoise shell, square cat's eye frames and more, retro eyewear fashion is too cool to ignore. This kind of timeless look offers a studious or funky impression of you. It's 2012, but you can bring back the yesteryear magic by wearing vintage eyeglass frames. However, be careful while accessorizing as you don't want to end up looking outdated. Get groovy with 70s' bug-eye glasses or just don the cat-eye glasses to look like a 60s' diva. You can also opt for a GI glass and get Drew Carey like nerdish appeal.

Plaids, pin stripes and dual colored patterns are hot picks which you can find on the shelves. Eyeglass frame trends of this year have much of that color element which offers endless options for female folks. Pink, purple, gray, white, lavender and red are a few of the top choices. However, if you are not comfortable experimenting with color while choosing your eyeglass frame, then you might feel safe opting for gray, brown and transparent frames with a hint of white or navy blue.

Faded Eyeglass Frames
If one color is just not enough for you, then faded eyeglass frames are exactly the type of eyewear you are looking for. These are funky yet are not over-the-top frames. They bring out the nostalgia of tie dye era. However while sporting this look, keep in mind that the top color is not blending with your eyebrows as you don't want to look as if you have just one eyebrow. Moreover, the faded color should accentuate your skin tone and compliment the angles of your lower face. Such frames are easily available with a wayfarer design in the market. Best suited for round and oval shaped faces, faded frames with expressive colors would reflect your vibrant personality.

Well, there are a lot of options to explore in the section of prescription and non-prescription eyewear. I am sure that the wide range of options that are available are going to leave you confused while shopping for just one. Just browse through the websites of best brands and hit the eyewear shops to checkout the latest collection. While you follow the trends, don't forget to purchase a piece that suits you the best. Designer or no-brand, your decision should be based more on comfort rather than funky designs. Make sure that the best quality lenses are fixed in the chosen frame to have a good vision correction eyewear. Put on the glasses and get set to flaunt your fresh look.
