2019 Eyewear Trends – Retro is Alive and Well

If you have been keeping up with the latest trends in 2019, you’ll know that last year’s retro wave remains prevalent today. Metallic oversized frames, cat-eyed frames, and colored lenses are the perfect indicators of its staying power. This year, it’s all about the super-retro or the futuristic, or even a combination of the two. As summer arrives, many will be using eyewear as more than just an accessory, employing different stylized frames to create unique looks. An individual’s facial appearance is the first thing people notice, so let’s take a look at the must-get sunglasses to help you make the perfect first impression.

Shield Sunglasses

On the runways, sporty shield sunglasses have made a big splash in the spring and summer of 2019. A number of major brands have utilized this futuristic look, including Miu Miu’s bow-adorned offering, Roberto Cavalli’s amalgamation of shield sunglasses and scarves, Loewe, and MSGM. This new style is a favorite of lovers of the outdoors, including surfers and skiers. Comfort is paramount for eyewear today, and the popularity of shield sunglasses has also skyrocketed in fashion circles around the world. Mixing and matching various design elements to create your own style is the best way to make a modern statement.

Polygonal Frames

Metallic and geometric frames were all the rage in the 90’s, as they could be considered the easiest and safest choice. Whether rectangular or circular, they always had a streamlined appearance with a bit of retro flair, which is what it’s all about right now, whether in apparel or accessories like watches. SPEKTRE ROSITA  suits any facial structure, and it delivers a modest confidence that heighten the wearer’s personal style.

Ultra-thin Cat-eye Frames

Darlings of the 50’s, cat-eye frames have made their way back alongside the retro wave. This elegant and charming look was huge in 2018, and in 2019 things look to be no different. One thing to note is that the ultra-thin, super narrow oval and triangular cat-eye frames so popular between 1990 and 2000 will become the next big thing.
