Fall 2010 Eyewear Trends You Don’t Want to Miss

fall eyeglass trends

Let’s face it, glasses go in and out of style as much as the latest clothing fashion trends. When you update your fall wardrobe, make sure to upgrade your eyewear as well. To help you choose your fashion savvy look, here are the hottest eyewear trends of the season!

Geek-Chic
Oversized plastic Wayfarers or round glasses are a must in clear, black, brown or tortoise. Smaller versions of these designer frames, as well as rimless and semi-rimless frames, emphasize this trend in bookworm fashion. Bold colors or half-colored frames, strong browlines or horned-rimmed details, keyhole bridges and Clubmaster remixes add quirky touches.

Military
The way this trend is interpreted in eyewear is through metal details and tones. You can bring out your inner modern warrior by selecting eyewear with metal details. Think of embossed metal temples, flat metal details and logo treatments. The offering of these frames in a taupe and muted metallic tones is a nod to the safari/modern warrior trend too. You can even take this trend more literally if you think about the materials – for instance Ray-Ban offers a range of carbon fiber glasses that make them super durable and lightweight, which is a benefit if you’re active and on the go. These frames tend to be a little more conservative in style and will work nicely if you want more clean and simple look.

Gem Stones
Gem stone colors are the big trend, reds, purples, violets, and deep blues. We can even take this trend literally with crystal detailing on the temples. You can have a lot of fun with this trend. If you have to wear a uniform, having a flashy pair of glasses can help you express yourself and stand out in crowd. It’s also a really easy way to incorporate color in to your wardrobe.

New Neutrals
These fashion frames are lightly hued in nearly clear blush, blue and gray tones. You’ll see this trend reflected in frames that are fully transparent while others will interpret this trend through mesh and ombre or fade details. You can dress any outfit up or down in these glasses and they’ll match nearly everything. It gives you a softer look and offers some visual interest because they are definitely not basic.
