The motto of men’s eyewear trends this year is: subtle and restrained rather than conspicuous and colourful. Simple eyewear frames are absolutely in focus, but for the lenses everything is allowed, from bright colours to mirroring.
Last year acetate frames were particularly popular, but this year metal frames are playing a decisive role. Light, narrow frames, especially in gold, are in the fast lane, giving the wearer a kind of hip blogger look.
But acetate frames are not completely out in 2018. Their motto, however, is: discreetly coloured, restrained and often transparent. Eye-catching and distinctive frames are finally moving into the background this year.
The classical round shapes, which have long been well known for sunglasses, are becoming more and more popular for men’s prescription eyewear. However, these should neither be too small nor too big. A simple round metal frame combines all current trends and is also a true all-rounder.
Narrow metal frames for men, especially in gold and silver, are in full swing! Our timeless favourite is this JB Musickid. The double bridge, which has sneaked on to the noses of many celebrities in recent years, is trending in plain metal sunglasses.
The acetate frame is also not disappearing in the sunglasses range – it is only getting narrower, adapting to the trend of filigree frames. Subtle colours such as black, gray, brown and blue can be optimally combined with any outfit. Whether classic, casual or elegant – these eyewear colours are perfect to spice up your outfit for any season and any occasion. A good example of such a stylish accessory is the classic-modern Lacoste made of plastic and acetate, which optimally combines the double bridge and full rim accents.
Panto glasses, transparent frames and sunglasses in pilot style are still trendsetting.
For both prescription glasses and sunglasses, the question should always be: Which glasses suit my face shape?
Finding the perfect shape for you face is essential when buying glasses. In general, edgy glasses are more likely to suit round-shaped faces because they optically stretch the face. For angular face shapes, you should again choose round or oval eyeglasses, which make the face appear softer. Men with an oval face shape are extremely fortunate because almost any eyewear shape suits them.
