As the new year begins so do the new trends, and of course this includes our favorite accessory, eyewear! Last month, fashion forecaster Stylesight and Eyecessorize worked together to host the Eyewear Product & Trend Review for spring/summer of 2014. So, what styles should you be sporting this coming year?
The Instagram Look.
This look has a retro feel and was inspired by the widespread social media craze. For sunglasses, the Instagram look includes rosy tinted lenses, filtered lenses, or gold tinted lenses. For both sunglasses and eyeglass frames, the look encompasses the classic tortoise print, soft shapes, and even wooden frames. Of the four 2014 upcoming trends, this is the one for the girl who wants to play it safe. The Instagram look is sophistication and style in a subtle yet fashionable way.
The Mathematical Look.
For those looking for a more bold change in the coming year, the mathematical look is calling your name. This look has angular cuts with daring shapes and styles, and these dashing frames should be eloquently complimented by neutral colors.
We’re talking triangle lenses, hexagonal lenses…any geometric shape will do! These bold frames place emphasis on the brow bar while still having simplistic contours (thanks to the neutral colors). For those who want to push their fashion one step further, the mathematical look also brings sophistication to these trend setting frames with black and white patterns as well as matte finish.
The Aquatic Look.
While some of us love the neutral and discrete eyewear colors, those of you looking for more of a statement are going to love both the aquatic and garden look. The aquatic look, inspired of course by the natural beauty of the ocean, includes vibrant blues, turquoises, and teals. These blue hues can be subtle or sharp, and no matter which side of the spectrum you end up on, you’re sure to turn heads. And it’s not just blues… the aquatic inspired trend also includes partially clear frames, cloudy frames, and textured frames.
The Garden Look.
Last but not least, the final eyeglass trend of summer/spring 2014 is the garden look. This trend is for the free spirit or the girl who wants to make a statement. Frames can be floral prints, vibrant pinks or earthy greens… any tribute to spring foliage and mother nature will do. This trend is simply whimsical fun, in whatever form you choose. Your spring inspired frames, coupled with some mirrored lenses, are sure to make the “New Year” impression you’re looking for!
