Trend Alert: Sunglasses for Summer 2015

Winter is behind us and it’s time for new beginnings. And what better way to welcome the sunshine than by stepping out in style, with the trendiest sunglasses. This season’s sunglasses take their cues from some of the hottest collections showcased on the runways – from New York to Paris, from Milan to London. Here’s what to expect in Spring / Summer 2015.

Shine On

The 90s rave culture was all the rage on New York’s runways. Think latex pants and pop colours. Sport shiny black acetate frames, perhaps with a bit of bling. Pair with tinted lenses and add some colour to your look.

Mad Men

The cult TV show Mad Men may be in its final season, but the 50s and 60s still ruled the runways the world over for S/S15. Bring back the charm of the era with cat-eye glasses; extra style points if the frames have a feline motif.

Retro Fit

Will we ever tire of the 70s look? Doesn’t seem like that, as S/S15 continues with fashion’s long romance with the disco era. Take inspiration from Saturday Night Fever or ABBA and go for oversize frames. While coloured frames may make a fashion statement, nothing says the 70s as much as the classic white oversized sunglasses.

We’re in the army now

The military palette was all over the runways as well in Summer 2015. Khaki, olive, moss – the full range of army fatigue colours provided an ideal base that allowed pops of colour to shine through. So add a neutral pair in army greens to your sunglasses collection this spring; pair it with a shirt in jewel tones to highlight the glasses.

Water World

The runways also saw a distinct theme of water running through various collections – either in actual colours (blues, greens etc.) or in the use of fluid fabrics and shapes. Get classic frame shapes but replace the traditional black with blue tones – anything from azure to navy is bound to be flattering.

Get Framed
