Eyewear Trends

With the rise of telecommuting, remote work and video calls, 2020 and 2021 is truly the year of the face, making this the year for statement frames to shine. Now that we’re all spending most of our time speaking to people on a video call, we’re spending less time picking out which blazer or suit to wear to work, and more time deciding which statement glasses to wear. A stunning pair of statement frames are just what you need to log on to the video call looking put together and confident.

In response to this new trend, frame designers have given all the beloved, timeless eyewear silhouettes the update we never knew they needed. Not sure which trends to embrace as you pick out new frames, here are our picks of the top 5 eyewear trends that are taking the world by storm this year. The great news? These frames work just as well as sunglasses frames too so you can look the part even when you do venture outside.

Crystal clear

Eyewear Trends

Forget classic black or statement colours — this barely-there look is all about being bright and clear. Frame shapes can range from petite and round to chunky and bold. Some have subtle colours, such as watery blue, slipper pink or silver-grey, making the frame even more jewel-like. No matter which you choose, a clear frame helps enhance your style.

Classic tortoiseshell

Second only to clear frames, tortoiseshell glasses in unique patterns and colours will bring your look bang up to date. But, this season the classic brown tortoiseshell is getting a little more oomph! For 2021 tortoiseshell frames will be available in many colour palettes so you’ll be sure to find the perfect one to suit your skin and hair tone.

Hip to be square

Eyewear Trends

Square lenses are timeless and this year’s silhouette borrows the retro-vintage vibe with oversized proportions and thick frames. With true square or gently rounded shapes, they’ll make you look stylish without putting in too much effort.

Retro flat top aviators

Eyewear Trends

Who doesn’t love the enduring aviator silhouette? Give a subtle (or not-so-subtle) nod to the shiny metal throwbacks from the days of Top Gun or look out for the acetate shapes that are so hot right now. Aviators never go out of style and this year this style is being used for both corrective lenses and sunglasses.

The nostalgic feeling of round frames is not going anywhere this season. Embrace your inner Harry Potter with classic metal frames or update your look by combining the flat top silhouette with round lenses and clear or updated tortoiseshell frames.

No matter what style you choose, no matter what fashion trend you jump on or choose to ignore, these trends are a great way to help your personality shine through when you’re on a Zoom meeting or attending an event online.
