Whether your glasses are functional or purely a fashion statement, it pays to give a subtle nod to the emerging seasonal trends, and AW/17 is no different. The beauty of wearing frames that are bang on-trend is that you’ll be channelling a catwalk-inspired look no matter the cost or material of your frames.
So whether you’re rocking a budget set of specs or the latest Oakley prescription glasses, you can ensure you’re sporting a fashionable look this season by following our top trends for eyewear for autumn / winter 2017:
- Stunning in Silver
The AW catwalks were awash with silver highlights, from sequinned chain mail to unique use of foil, and these silver notes will be just as popular when it comes to your eyewear. Opt for frames in silver or grey, particularly with metal detailing and silver arms to subtly channel this catwalk-inspired feel.
- Boyish tailoring
This season has seen a surge in particularly masculine trends, notably around suits and tailoring. You can introduce a feminine element to this trend with some oval, acetate frames in a black gloss. Open for metallic frames in a brushed goals and detailing on the temples to really set off the look.
You might associate floral patterns with summer or spring, but they’ve also been making a welcome appearance on the AW catwalks. If you’re wearing dark statement pieces with floral patterns for winter, then you can finish off the look with light, simple frames in a classic black with a matt finish. Some nice detailing on the temples and just a hint of tortoiseshell will complete the outfit.
