Eyewear is no longer just a visual aid, it is now considered to be one of the most important accessories besides handbags, jewelry and shoes. If you enjoy fashion, you usually also enjoy wearing glasses and sunglasses that are available in different sizes, shapes and colours. Some eyewear trends disappear, others celebrate a comeback. Others are always in fashion and are not fleeting. Such timeless models, which can be equated with the little black dress, are an absolute must-have for every eyewear lover.
These durable classics include, for example, glasses in Leo optics, oversize eyewear, glasses with round lenses and of course pilot and cat-eye glasses. Of course, the designers also change these models from season to season, reinventing the classics and playing with the colours and materials of the current trends. But that’s exactly what keeps their predecessors up-to-date and generally well-remembered.
Eyewear in Leo look
One of our favourite patterns in women’s eyewear is and remains the leopard look. A timeless classic, which can be found in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and can be combined with almost any colour. This pattern harmonizes particularly well with warm colours such as red, yellow or green. But all earth tones match our favourite animal print.
Large or small, round or square, natural or colourful glasses (like the pink Ray-Ban) – glasses in trendy animal print are always a cool accessory!
Oversize eyewear is the perfect accessory to let you stand out in the crowd. Oversize glasses are very popular with celebrities and Instagram bloggers (for example, Burberry) and are used in many ways. Combined with casual jeans and T-shirt, extravagant dresses or elegant costumes, oversize glasses are an all-round talent. The motto is to be seen and be noticed!
Glasses with Round Lenses
Ever since John Lennon and the fast-paced Beatles success story, glasses with round lenses have become timeless eyewear. Large or small, round glasses have been trendy for decades. Another plus of round eyeglasses: they suit almost all face shapes and give any outfit that certain hippie vintage touch (for example from Polo). Colourful eyeglass lenses, colourful frames, ornate narrow or thick frames – the great variety nowadays lends round eyewear a modern, timeless factor.
An absolute classic among glasses is definitely the aviator sunglasses. Since sunglasses have been available, you can see people wearing this famous model. Not only as sunglasses, are they a real eye-catcher, they even cut a fine figure as prescription glasses in everyday life. Features of the pilot sunglasses are the coloured mirrored lenses (as from Tommy Hilfiger //www.edel-optics.co.uk/TH-1454-S-000-72-by-Tommy-Hilfiger.html) and the narrow metal frame that is often in silver or in gold. Aviator sunglasses are for both men and women and can be perfectly combined with casual clothing and summer outfits.
Cat-eye glasses stand for femininity, elegance, glamour and timeless beauty. Worn and popularized by icon Audrey Hepburn in the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” in the 1960s, cat-eye glasses have made a comeback in recent years. Wearing cat-eye glasses with their vintage charm requires courage and especially suits women with heart-shaped or oval shaped faces. In addition to the classic black, slightly curved upward shape, there are numerous other variations of cat-eye glasses – narrow forms, oversize lenses, bright colours and ornaments. Whether as prescription glasses or sunglasses, there are no limits to the range of extravagant cat-eye glasses.
