Summer brings barbecues, bikinis, beaches and best of all: sunshine. With all the activity and fun, it’s easy to forget that the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun can be harmful to your eyesight. But don’t let it get you down! Sunglasses protect your eyes as well as they accent your face– they are a true summer essential.
Read on for the Vision Gallery’s styleguide for Summer 2015.
Life in Technicolor
Another trip to the sunglasses rack brings yet another choice between black, tortoise or metallic. Two words: BO. RING; this year embrace the unconventional and add a splash of colour to your look with bright, flashy frames and lenses. From classic style to futuristic design, eyewear designers have introduced a veritable rainbow of sunglasses to choose from this summer.
Black, White and Cool All Over
With hints of Classic Hollywood and old time movie stars, thick white frames with dark lenses are a rejuvenated style of sunglasses this summer. Find your inner starlet or leading man with a pair of bold, stylized white frames. From cat-eyes to aviators, the variety is endless– so enjoy the simplicity and versatility of a dark lens accented by a chunky white frame.
It’s 2015: go big or go home! With over-sized garments and accessories making headlines on catwalks and red carpets lately– elite eyewear designers are influencing the style with large, elaborate frames. Square, round, geometric, clear, smokey, bright; any lens or shape can work with a bigger frame, so you can easily adjust them to your face and style. Add some high-fashion glamour to any summer look with stylish, oversized sunglasses.
Bold, geometric shapes are all the rage in summer 2015 and sunglasses are no exception. Looking to stand out? Make the perfect statement with square or round sunglasses frames. Effective in both bright colours and subtler tones, the retro feel of these frames will keep you feeling cool in the summer heat.
Expect the Unexpected
Some of the top design trends in sunglasses right now are ornate, showy or fanciful features. Half-rims, ombre or mirror lenses, even bold, sparkly gems are finding their way to mainstream and high-fashion summer eyewear. Be seen this season with a pair of non-traditional frames– the varieties are endless!
