Fashion has always reflected the state of society. And, this year – due to the COVID-19 pandemic – proves to be no different. Eyewear trends have always focused on the balance of novelty, statement-making frames, and timeless designs. Consumers also lean into mindful shopping, purchasing styles that look easy, versatile, and have subtle style details. For example, a classic cat-eye shape but with a modern update like a narrower, more angular shape or the notorious aviator with a reflective or colored tint.
Trendy eyewear – the ultimate summer fashion accessory
Trendy eyewear, arguably, can make or break your entire summer wardrobe. If you settled on the perfect pair that makes a statement but it somehow goes with everything, it will take your look from a zero to a definite 100 in an instant. To find out which sunglasses styles are actually worth buying, here are things I found on Shopee:
Come aboard the Y2k train as frameless sunglasses are officially back in style. It’s like the ones our favorite celebs used to wear in the early 2000s. No matter how you personally feel about them, there’s no denying that these have flooded our Instagram feeds. Especially from our favorite IT girls.
Rectangle sunglasses have become all the rage right now, especially black ones that we see all over Instagram. They have become a classic that reigned in the ’90s which, of course, have become the supreme style go-to now. You can look absolutely perfect if you paired this with a barely-there pair of sandals and slouchy denim.
As I’ve said before, trendy eyewear can make or break your summer looks. This trend, on the other hand, will definitely make them. Look for sunglasses that lend a pop of color via tinted lenses. They may not be the best at actually blocking the sun, but who even cares when you look that cool in them?
It’s cateye sunglasses, need I say more?
Aviators never really went away. Like cateye sunglasses, visor shades remained a classic. However, this year seemed to be their return with modern updates. Like, oversized and acetate frames that give off a retro ’70s feel.
