Spring’s Hottest Sunglasses Trends You Need in Your Life
Nothing gets us in the mood for much-needed warmer weather faster than a glass of rosé and a pair of new specs. Eyewear is one of the most expressive accessory statements there is. And, let’s be honest, expanding an ever-growing sunglass collection feeds our fashion-loving soul. With neon and transparent hues to monogrammed must-have shades in the mix, here are the sunglasses trends to try right now.
Throwback brights that dominated your childhood are back in a big way. Neon adds a jolt of fun to any outfit. Plus, when you’re accessorizing with neon blue, red, pink, yellow or any other highlighter hue, your OOTD doesn’t require much else. According to Anna Longoni, Sunglass Hut head of sun assortment, “Contrasting electric shades not only make the Instagram moment, but they also evoke an ’80s vibe that merges street style with activewear.”
If you’re into sporting labels loud and proud, then you’re in luck. This spring, monogrammed-enhanced eyewear is everywhere. From labeled lenses to visors that pop, there’s a style for everyone. “Look for cool silhouettes with repetitive logo detailing to achieve this fashion-forward trend and let your brand loyalty be known,” suggests Longoni.
Neon not your thing? Transparent cyber tones is a more understated color movement for spring. “Keep an eye out for acid-washed bright tones in fun pastels and nude color
palettes to really amplify your entire ensemble,” advises Longoni. And if you really want to embrace the look, make sure the lenses are as tinted and high-tech as the frames.
“Unique-shaped frames including rectangles and oversized squares are having a moment and if you don’t feel comfortable trying an over-the-top clothing fashion trend, sunglasses are an easy way to experiment and expand your wardrobe,” explains Longoni.
Metal is the most versatile of eyewear styles since the shapes and colors can change, but the unique hardware details always take center stage. “Hexagonal, pentagonal, and butterfly frames add a dose of quirky cool to any look,” says Longoni, but you can never go wrong in a classic cat-eye shade or aviator. Whatever you do, keep a polishing cloth on hand though — no one likes smudgy (metal) sunnies.
