Trend Alert: Color Mirror Effect

Q.  What do Rita Ora, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Coachella festival goers have in common?

 A.  An insatiable love for colored, mirrored sunglasses!

Originating on the Trussardi and Moschino Cheap and Chic S/S 12 runways, and recently popularized by music festival attendees, the color mirror effect is turning the world of Instagram into reality!  No longer relegated as “cop shades,” spring’s hottest micro trend has been spotted just about everywhere.  From aviators and wayfarers, to extreme cat-eye styles, this refreshing take on eyewear adds a vivacious touch of playfulness to any look.

Not only are specs with shiny, reflective lenses stylish, they provide additional health benefits to your eyes that regular sunglasses don’t.  Comprised of a reflective optical coating on the outside surface of the tinted lenses, also called a flash coating, mirrored sunglasses reduce glare and eyestrain by decreasing the amount of light passing through the fashionista’s lens by 10–60%.  This one-way mirror effect allows the wearer to see only the color of the lens tint, but not the color of the flash coating.  Therefore, you can embrace the Instragram inspired sunnies without having to view the world in those colors.

Need ideas on how to wear this trend?  How about with everything!  The versatility of these iridescent lenses allows them to look great with any ensemble.  Whether it’s with your weekend sun dress or your work suit, don’t be afraid to wear them loud and proud!
