Like basically every facet of the fashion universe, the optical world see's trends come and go. When it comes to what's "in", the changes are equally as rapid in the world of frames as it is in the world of clothes...or shoes...or handbags....or pretty much ANYTHING.
So, about five to ten years ago, we were seeing A LOT of small, rectangular styles.
Now, I'm not saying that this type of style has completely disappeared. As you well know, you can always find a certain type of style in anything if you really want it. However, the trend has definitely veered far off this track.
So, let's get to the main event. Here are the 3 trends that have touched down...and HARD.
Whether it's square, round or cat-eye, the big look that is in right now is....well, BIG. The style has definitely stepped away from the smaller and delicate to the bigger and bolder. Top name designers like Chloe, Prada, Tom Ford etc. have lead the way in this movement with some AMAZING looks. Like these ones!
This sexy, retro 50's/60's era look has been sweeping the markets. We are HUGE fans of this feminine, bold, gorgeous style! Oh, and the great thing is that it comes in different degrees. From gentle up-sweep to full on Cat Woman, there is a look for every lady.
It's no secret that the retro, throw-back look is in. From denim jackets, to gauchos and corduroy, the past is totally present. In terms of optical, we did NOT escape this oh-so-popular trend!
So, I guess the moral of the story is that the world of fashion is ever changing......and the world of optical design is no exception!
