You don’t need to let your prescription glasses negatively impact the way that you look. In fact, the right pair of fashion-forward frames can make sure that you stay firmly on-trend, as well as accentuating your features and helping you to see clearly.
Here’s what you need to know about the top eyewear trends of 2021 so that you can stay in style this year.
Transparent frames have been around since 2010, but have only recently made a real comeback, especially among the younger generations. These versatile frames go with any coloring or outfit, look ultra-sleek and modern, and have a lightweight feel. They also don’t detract from your facial features, meaning you can go as bold as you like with your eye makeup, and it won’t be compromised by your glasses. Choose from classic round frames to contemporary geometric designs to suit your face shape.
Round frames aren’t just for wizards! This iconic shape never goes out of fashion, but this year, we can expect dark round frames to be replaced with minimalist wire in a range of complementary colors, including gold, silver, copper, and rose gold. Round frames best compliment oval and heart-shaped faces, but can still look good on virtually anyone, provided you choose a shade that suits your skin and hair tones.
Another classic style that’s never likely to go out of fashion is the aviator. They suit most face shapes and can be dressed up or down as you need. However, modern aviators are moving away from traditional-colored metal rims and can now be found in an array of glorious technicolor, from mint and mauve to electric oranges and blues. Whether you are brave and bold, or shy and understated, there’s a variety to suit you.
With most of us spending more time using digital devices than ever before, it’s unsurprising that the number of people experiencing digital eye strain has increased dramatically over the last decade. Symptoms include dry eyes, eye fatigue, redness, soreness, watering, headaches and more. Much of this is due to overexposure to blue light, which is emitted by our digital devices. Fortunately, it’s possible to choose blue-light blocking glasses which help to reduce the effect of digital eye strain.
Long gone are the days where people only wore sunglasses on the sunniest of days. Damage to the eyes caused by UV light is accumulative and can occur even on cloudy days. Sunglasses are no longer simply a fashion accessory, but also the best way to protect your eyes and long-term vision. Choose sunglasses that have a tag or sticker to say that they protect against 100% UV light. Oversize and wraparound styles help to prevent UV light from seeping in around the sides and causing cellular damage to the skin around your eyes and your eyes themselves.
