No season for wallflowers

If making a fashion statement and standing out in the crowd is your thing, current eyewear trends are on your side. Fashion house after another has presented extravagant eyewear collections for this year, including Finnish icon Marimekko.



Two main trends are bright colored and oversized frames. Retro is the dominating style. Cat eye –frame shape from the 50’s and round shape from the 60’s are included in almost every eyewear collection this year. Keyhole shaped nose bridge is back. Bold designs combined with new materials and coatings, such as fabric and wood are creating entirely new dimensions to eyewear.



In summary, this season’s eyewear is and should be a statement and accentuate your personality. Eyeglasses are the most visible part of your outfit, and should therefore compliment and match you and your look. This is a good time to let go of the bland and boring safe-choice –frames. Go for something bold and get more than just one pair of glasses.


Just remember that rules are meant to be broken – especially this season.


When frames are as grandeur as they are this season, it is good to look up some face shape and color analysis guides online before hitting the eyewear shops. Ill-fitting frames tend to look funny trendy or not. Cat eye –shape works best for people with round face shape. In contrast, 60’s inspired round frames soften square shaped faces. Oval face shape folk can get away with practically any frame shape. When frames are as vividly colored as they are now, knowing your color map will help you choose a color that works for you. Just remember that rules are meant to be broken – especially this season.
