Looking to keep your reading glasses collection fresh and up to date? Here’s our picks for the top reading glasses trends this season.
The obsession with retro and vintage that we have seen the last few years continues to dominate. The one aspect of this trend that is changing is that frames are starting to get thinner and less chunky. It is starting to move away from the chunky look of the 50’s and 60’s to the large but thinner look of the 1980’s. (Please no spandex!) Tortoise and other neutral tones are keeping this trend close to its roots and classic.
We saw this trend picking up some steam in the last year or so. This two-tone colour treatment is now really being seen in Spring 2013. Fades give a softer look to reading glasses and can be dressed up or down.
Nothing says Spring like a splash of colour and this trend does just that. Spring colours liven up your readers with either the entire frame being bold or a hit of vibrant colour from an inside layer. Look for electric reds, yellows, and greens.
For men, a great way to expand your reader collection and stay on trend is with sleek metal styles. These range from athletic or sport influenced looks to traditional shapes for a classic appearance. Look for subtle metallic sheen colour.
