If you’ve recently been advised by your optician that you need glasses or you are looking to update your style for the new year, we’ve got some great advice to keep you on trend.  The following styles of glasses are predicted to be big in 2017 so read on to help you choose the perfect eyewear.

Eyewear colour trends for 2017

Tortoiseshell frames have been popular this year and are predicted to stay this way in 2017.  Available in a wide range of patterns and shades to suit the shape of your face and skin tone, tortoiseshell glasses are suitable for both men and women who want to look stylish with their eyewear.  They will look equally at home with your winter and spring office outfits or when accessorised for a night out, so don’t be afraid to try this versatile style when choosing your next pair of glasses.

If you can’t decide what colour frames you like most, why not opt for clear ones?  Clear frames are also predicted to be popular in 2017 and you can’t say they won’t match your outfit, whatever you choose to wear!

Eyewear Styles and Shapes for 2017

The new year will see a blend of minimalistic styles and bold shapes.  Think narrow metal frames, particularly for men, and cute round glasses for men and women alike.  Square, hipster glasses with dark thick frames will also make you stand out of the crowd and are perfect to show off your inner creativity.

Cat eye frames are also another option to stay on trend with your eyewear and are a particularly good way to flatter the female face.

Sunglasses styles for 2017

Sunglasses are not just an accessory for the summer as your eyes need protecting from the sun’s harmful UV rays all year around, particularly when traveling to warmer climes.  To help you stay on trend with your eyewear here are a few styles to look out for in 2017:

  • Oversized sunglasses – they’re here to stay as the trend to cover not just your eyes, but half of your face, looks set to continue next year.
  • Aviator sunglasses – not just great on the runway, aviator glasses remain a popular style often seen on the catwalk and adorning the faces of many a celebrity.
  • Coloured lenses – some designers are adding subtle hints of colour to their lenses to complement frame styles and colours and we can see this being a big hit in 2017.
