Eyeglasses are technically a practical, medical device. But because we wear them on our face, they’re also something more — a style choice, and a powerful one at that. Some people even choose to wear eyeglasses with no prescription lenses for the look.
As with most things in fashion, different trends in what is popular come and go every year. Here are some of the eyeglass frames that are on trend for 2022.
Square frames can “frame” your eyes and give interesting angles to your cheeks. Square frames have come back in a big way over the past year. You can try them in an oversized boxy black, or consider a sleeker rectangle in tortoiseshell color.
Metal frames have the benefits of durability, modern design, sustainability, and they also look really sharp. Metallic frames can be made of a variety of materials, each with its own colors, strength, and particular visual appeal. These frames aren’t going anywhere and they are always in style.
It would be remiss to not highlight the greatest eyewear trend of the past two years. Transparent frames have been around for years, but they are making a big comeback. You can find all kinds of very classy see-through frames that shape the face and go with any outfit.
Your glasses say a lot about you, so choose what that statement is. Bold geometric shapes will allow you to say everything you need to with a glance.
Of course, the color of your frames can also make a big statement. This year, we are seeing two competing trends when it comes to color. Some people are opting for the black or dark tortoise chunky frame, which provides a bold, fashion forward look. For those looking for something lighter, clear frames and pastel frames are also popping on on a lot of fashion blogs as the colors of the moment.
Above all, when you shop for your next pair of eyeglasses, consider quality over everything. When you invest in quality frames, you are actually saving money in the long term.
