I consider sunglasses to be one of the most essential accessories and practically live in them the moment I step outside. I have plenty of styles in my wardrobe—ranging from aviators to cat-eye shapes to ‘90s-inspired frames—but I’m always on the lookout for the new silhouettes of the season. Right now, there are some key spring eyewear trends that have already been adopted by the fashion crowd and are set to be huge as we move into summer.
If you’re into classic shapes, you might want to try out the pilot sunglasses we’ve been seeing everywhere. Rather than metal aviators, we’re seeing acetate frames with lenses in unexpected colors like orange and navy. If you want something trend-forward, sporty sunglasses are making a big resurgence, thanks to brands including Bottega Veneta, Miu Miu, and Marine Serre who put them on the map in their S/S 21 collections. Ahead, let’s dive into the 5 spring eyewear trends to know about.
