The Biggest Eyewear Trends To Look Out For In 2018

Today, eyewear design is no longer primarily focused on function, but on fashion as well, and eyeglasses have become some of the most coveted, statement-making accessories. If you are due for a new pair of spectacles, here are some of the latest trends in eyewear that you need to look out for:

1. Oversized Round Frames

Currently amongst the hottest trends in fashion, round eyeglasses have made a major comeback this season. Simple and trendy, round frames will give you an image of a free spirit and inventive individual.

Want a more professional look? You may want to consider metal round eyeglasses.

Suited for: Round frames are most suited for people with square or rectangular shaped faces.


2. Thin Wire Specs

Skillfully walking the fine line between delicate and durable, refined wire eyeglasses are one of the biggest eyewear trends of 2018. Some of the greatest benefits of this trend include the fact that it’s:

  • Lightweight and minimalist
  • Durable
  • Flexible
  • Very versatile

Suited for: Almost everyone! Thin wire eyeglasses come in all different shapes and sizes to suit any individual preference. 


3. Geek/Hipster Square Eyeglasses

Do you want to stand out from the crowd? Then Hipster eyeglasses may be the perfect option for you! Not usually on the safe side of fashion, this trend is all about unique designs, shapes and creativity.

Hipster eyeglasses:

  • Are vintage inspired
  • Have a keyhole bridge
  • Are oversized or thick
  • Come in a unique color or tortoise shell pattern
  • Are cat eye shaped, round, or feature an interesting browline design

Suited for: Anyone creative! However, most of the time they are round, square or rectangular frames, and should contrast with your face shape.


How To Choose The Right Pair of Eyeglasses For You

When it comes to finding the perfect pair of eyeglasses, a lot depends on your individual face shape. While it’s encouraged to try on a variety of spectacles, narrowing down your choice in advance can save you a lot of time and hassle, making the experience much more enjoyable.

3 points to consider when choosing eyeglasses are:

  • The size of the frame should be in scale with your face size
  • The shape of the frame should contrast your face shape (eg. round glasses for a square face)
  • Eyewear should reflect your best feature (eg. blue frames to match blue eyes)

Our Optometrists Can Help You Select The Perfect Pair!

Once you have finished your eye exam, our experienced and knowledgeable optometrists can help you use the above guidelines to choose an eyeglass frame that suits your unique face profile.
