Fashion trends tend to evolve, or even change completely, every year, and eyewear is no different. To help you stay in style, here are the top eyewear trends we can expect to see in 2022.
While wood isn’t a new material in modern eyewear, it is increasing in popularity, and we can expect to see many more glasses wearers opting for this frame material in 2022. As you might expect, wooden frames are very durable, particularly since most styles are made from a combination of natural wood and metals. Minimalistic and versatile, they can be worn with anything from formalwear to loungewear and suit pretty much every skin and hair tone. Better still you can choose recycled wooden frames that maximize your style and minimize your carbon footprint.
Tinted lenses may be a throwback to the 1970s, but they are set to become the next big thing in eyewear during the next year when there will be an influx of different shades to choose from, making it easy to find a hue that suits you. Tinted lenses don’t obscure your eyes, meaning that those around you will be able to continue to make eye contact, and they won’t be so dark that you can’t wear them indoors either. Whether you opt for a cool blue, pretty rose pink or bold orange, you can use tinted lenses to let your personality shine.
Ever since Audrey Hepburn first wore a pair in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, cat-eye frames have continued to enjoy a rollercoaster of popularity, coming back bigger and better each time. However, now cat-eye designs are being given a modern twist, with a greater number of colors, materials, and embellishments to choose from. Cat-eye frames suit a wide range of people but are particularly flattering on wearers with heart-shaped faces.
Taking care of your eyes is never-not cool, and one of the best ways of doing this is by wearing blue light lenses. With most of us spending more time using digital devices than ever before, we’re also being exposed to more blue light than is ideal. Too much blue light can cause eye strain, headaches, fatigue, dry eyes, blurred vision, and more. Fortunately, blue light lenses filter out the excess light, minimizing these effects.
In 2022, don’t be surprised to see oversized frames coming back bigger than ever. Not only do larger lenses help protect our eyes from harmful bacteria and the dangerous effects of the sun (in the case of sunglasses) but they also make a statement. Whether you opt for classic shades of black and brown or select a brighter, bolder color, oversized glasses are well and truly back in fashion.
