Are you looking to throw some serious shade in 2019? With the latest eyewear trends from Ray-Ban to Dolce&Gabbana you will be able to transform your look and have a big impact, without updating your wardrobe! Our friends at Luxottica have identified six macro eyewear trends for 2019; we’ve seen a return of mirrored and structural frames and there is also a big nod to minimalism. Here are the styles that you’ll be wanting to get your hands on this year.
Mirrored and Structured – Highlighting a trend that showcases bold volumes that are architecturally clean and precise, Ray-Ban and Vogue’s collections comprise elegant silhouettes with a maxi-minimal design.
Transparent and colourful – Inspired by 90s streetwear style the colourful lens and transparent elements in the eyewear trends seen all over social media have Gen Z-ers swooning.
Classics – With the focus being on high-quality craftmanship, the iconic wayfarer style is a perfect example of how cool and classic will always stay on trend.
Sporty Streetwear – The streetstyle aesthetic is still a major trend focus for 2019- as seen on fashion trend setters Kim and Khloe Kardashian-with many brands creating sophisticated ready to wear eyewear collections with modern tech materials, sleek textures and precise colours.
Bold Logos: Runway looks are incorporated into contemporary and modern eyewear styles with a huge focus being on over the top logos and bold motifs.
Quirky shapes – Block graphics, shapes and bold colours are must-have elements to have in your wardrobe this season as seen on the runway. Simplified sunglasses with playful shapes and colours are the perfect accessories to amplify a look.
