Frame or No Frame?

You can see a lot of full framed and a few rimless eyeglasses this season. Half frames are also in, but it's clear that they are not as popular. Most full frames are thick. Although black is an all time hit, this year we can see numerous other shades being used.

This year, designer and funky temples are predicted to be the most sought after frames. The thick tapering temple style in monochrome is very popular in frames for males. Designer eyeglass frames for women have maximum focus on the temples. Funky metal inlays, dual colored, and patterned temples make the hottest eyeglass frames for ladies. Moreover, classy patterns in monochrome and full frames with heavy temples are already on the shelves and are selling fast!
Retro Eye Wear is Back

This fashion style has a tendency to make comebacks. With thin frames, round frames, vintage frames, tortoise shell, square cat's eye frames and more, retro eyewear is too cool to ignore. However, be careful while accessorizing as you don't want to end up looking old-fashioned. Get groovy with 70s' bug-eye glasses or just wear cat-eye glasses to look like a 60s' diva. The antique gold with patterns and the neutral color flat frames is also gaining attention.
Colored Eyeglasses is Still a Thing

Frame colors are quite happening because color can rightly reflect your personality. So make sure that you choose the very frame, that is as vivacious or cool as you are. This year, you are going to find out a lot of solid colors ruling the eye wear section. If you are ready to sport a glamorous look, then grab the patterned and solid colored frames in shades of sober maroon, flashy purple, hot red, or fancy pink with metallic edges for strong contrast.
Whereas, if you are dressing up in your fanciest outfits, you can't miss out the chance to wear a matching pair of eye wear with frame having designs much similar to your outfits. 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 women. 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.
The Trendy Neutral

White, light crème, light brown, and light pink are colors introduced this year, and by the looks of it, will establish a strong ground in the coming years. The classy neutrals as they are called give you a subtle appeal, and can be adorned by women regardless of their skin tone.
Faded Eyeglass Frames
If one color is not enough for you, then faded eyeglass frames are exactly the type of eye wear you are looking for. These are funky, yet are not over-the-top. They bring out the nostalgia of tie dye era. 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 can reflect your vibrant personality.
Futuristic Eyeglasses
