- Stylish Color Tinted Sunglasses
One of the most significant sunglasses trends that rose from the ashes last year and keeps burning today is the tinted glasses lenses. This sunglasses style comes with a rainbow of pastel colors in terms of lenses for you to take your pick, from light blue and sunshine yellow to pink and burnt orange.
They’re not quite sunnies, as they don’t offer much protection from the sun if you’d be wearing them on the beach; instead, think of them as an accessory that will dress up any of your spring outfits.
- Clear Sunglasses
On the opposite end of the stick, competing with bright colored frames, are the transparent and translucent sunglasses. Seemingly inconspicuous, these cute sunnies are anything but
subtle and fashion forward at the same time, it looks like transparent glasses frames are here to stay, whether in their colorless clear versions or the bolder, colorful counterparts.
- Mirrored Lens Sunglasses
Want to shine like the sun in the sky this summer? Then mirrored frames are made with you in mind. Although flashy and frankly intimidating – how do you feel when you talk with somebody while staring at your reflection? – Reflective sunglasses can be both classy and stylish. Take a look at Olivia Palermo, a long-term fan.
Choose On the Up and Up with blue mirror if you’re on the blonde side to contrast with your hair. Otherwise, go for gold finishing to get your face illuminating.
- Small ‘90s Skinny Sunglasses
Tiny impractical sunglasses “too small for any UV protection” might be out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still go small in 2019.
A staple back in the ‘50, then again in the ‘90s, slim and tiny frames came back with a vengeance last year and rapidly gained followers that swear to this style.
There’s a debate around skinny sunglasses that they don’t offer that much sun protection, but they’re so high-fashion that no one can stop themselves from joining the crowd. Make sure you pick lenses with maximum UV protection just for good measure.
There isn’t a better accessory that updates your style as fast as a pair of brand new frames. Whether you wear them with prescription lenses or as a fashion statement while strolling the city, stylish, eye-catching glasses can seriously spice up your look.
