Which 2017 Eyeglass Trend is Best Suited for You?

When it comes to finding the best fitting pair of eyeglasses, the most important factor is your individual face shape.

At our eye clinic in Market Mall, we always encourage our patients to try a variety of eyeglasses. Narrowing down the choices can make your experience much more enjoyable and satisfying.

There are 3 main points to consider when choosing the most flattering pair of eyeglasses:

  1. Your pair of eyeglasses should reflect your best feature (e.g. blue frames to match blue eyes)
  2. The shape of the eyewear should contrast your face shape
  3. The size of the frame should be in scale with the size of your face

While the choice is ultimately up to you, our highly experienced optometrists can help you make the most informed decision about which eyeglass frame best suits your budget, lifestyle and unique face profile.

Which 2017 Eyeglass Trend is Best For You?

Today, eyewear design is no longer primarily focused on function, but on fashion as well. Eyeglasses have become some of the most coveted, statement-making accessories.

Here are some of the latest trends in fashion eyewear:

1. Round Eyeglasses

Round eyeglasses are a great pick for men and women who are looking to upgrade the look of their current eyewear.

They can be mixed and matched with a variety of outfits including business smart as well as hipster sweaters and hats. For a more professional look, consider metal round eyeglasses.

Best suited for: Square and rectangular-shaped faces.

2. Retro Cat Eye

Made popular in the 1950s, retro cat eyeglasses are the most popular style of vintage eyewear and are a favorite among women patients who are looking for a professional yet classically stylish look.

Whether you are looking for reading glasses for presbyopia or an everyday pair, retro cat eyeglasses are a great option.

Best suited for: Diamond-shaped faces (narrow forehead and wider jawline)

3. Aviator Eyeglasses

With its distinctive design, the aviator is one of the most iconic frame styles. While aviator sunglasses are by far the most popular silhouette, this year we see an interesting new trend: aviator eyeglasses.

They are perfectly suited for both men and women who are looking for a style that is casual, high-fashion or classically trendy.

Best suited for: Long faces (prominent chin with wider forehead and narrow jawline)

4. Oversized Eyeglasses

Large-framed eyeglasses are back. Oversized styling has worked its way through the years from the 1970s to date while still managing to stay trendy, relevant and classy.

One of the most popular unisex frame styles, over-sized eyeglasses give a playful, stylish look while remaining timeless and professional.

Best suited for: Oval faces (wider forehead with prominent cheekbones)
