Winter’s Hot Fashion Eyewear Trends

Glasses used to be considered a big inconvenience. Frame choices used to be slim, and the frames available weren’t exactly fashion forward. But those days are over! Glasses are now one of the hottest accessories to any great outfit. Many people are actually wearing glasses whether they need them or not, just as a way to express themselves and up their fashion ante. All of the best designers have included some great new glasses and sunglasses in their lines this season. If you’re in the market for a new set of spectacles, look no further than this guide for the hottest eyewear trends for winter 2016.


Sunglasses and winter may seem like an oxymoron at first. However, the sun is glaring off of the snow and ice can make sunglasses a winter essential. Whether prescription or non-prescription, there are some gorgeous new sunglasses for this winter that will fit every style and face:

Bold and colorful frames

Primary colors in bold shapes and sizes might seem fit for kids. But these fun styles can make any outfit really stand out.

Oversized frames

Frames that cover the upper part of the face make a bold statement. They’re great for highlighting the eyes and making other features seem small.

Retro frames

Vintage styles from mod ‘60s style to disco diva ‘70s and everything in between are so in. Channel your favorite old school movie star with a throwback pair of sunglasses.

Really round frames

John Lennon-esque styles, known also as tea frames, give anyone a smart and funky look. Tortoise shell or jet black frames can add a modern element of cool.

Funky shapes

Sunglasses don’t have to be just round or square- hexagon, star, and even triangular shapes are both fun and functional.


These classic frames are flattering on almost anyone. Add some ombre or mirrored lenses for an extra-trendy look.

Futuristic design

Dangling lenses, crazy frames and intricate details bring the future to life. The more daring the design, the better for this sunglass trend.


If you want to look smarter, more modern, or even vintage chic, there is certainly a trendy pair of glasses to suit your style. Fall is a great time to update your eyewear along with your wardrobe.

Geeky glasses

Thick frames, thick lenses and muted colors (think awkward ‘80s glasses) used to scream nerd. Now, they scream fashionista.

Shaded lenses

Rose-colored, yellow-hued and even purple-tinted lenses add some mystery and personality to any pair of glasses. They’re also useful for light-sensitive eyes.

Cat eye glasses

Flirtatious and cool, cat eye glasses seem glamourous and sophisticated with just a hint of fun. This vintage look isn’t going out of style anytime soon, and it’s flattering on most face shapes.


These classic frames have been popular since their creation in the 1950s. Their vintage vibe makes any outfit look fashion forward and adds just a hint of smartness.

Dramatic glasses

Futuristic and cool looks aren’t just for sci-fi fans. Creative glasses, whether bold framed, frameless or fun-shaped are a great way to express uniqueness and are very hot this winter.

Sporty frames

Glasses fit for Olympians can be fun and functional. Streamlined frames and bright, sporty colors are on point.

Retro frames

Just as with sunglasses, looks from the 1960s forward are in style. Pick your favorite era to fit your own personal style.
