If you need glasses or you are looking to buy some sunglasses for the summer, here are some trends to get excited about.

Rounded glasses

The fashion world is well and truly going crazy for rounded glasses at the moment! This is a trend that works just as well for prescription sunglasses as it does prescription glasses. There is something extremely nostalgic and romantic about this type of frame. Think back to the days where life was more laid back and John Lennon played on the radio – if this sounds appealing to you, then this trend is right up your street. Celebrity fans of this old school trend include; Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Fergie, Kat Graham, Anna dello Russo, Kourtney Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Kelly Osbourne, and Miley Cyrus.

How do you wear this trend? If you are purchasing prescription glasses for everyday use then team with an oversized blazer and a satchel. If you are buying prescription sunglasses or glasses, speak with your ophthalmologist first, and then have fun and don’t take the trend to seriously. You shouldn’t go for bold and vibrant styles because these contrast with the laid back feel of the glasses.

Colourful frames

It is time to bin the black; it’s boring! Bring some colour to your life with a vivid shade of frame for your prescription sunglasses or prescription glasses. This trend is great for when you are in a rush and struggling to put an outfit together. Why? Well, because your glasses are a statement accessory and thus they’ll capture all of the attention and turn the plainest of dresses into a five star ensemble. Celebrity fans of this trend include; Jessica Alba, Gwen Stefani, Paris Hilton, Sienna Miller, Keri Hilson and Rachel Bilson.

When choosing the right coloured glasses for you, you need to bear in mind your complexion. Do you have a warm or cool complexion? If you have a warm skin tone, eye colour and hair colour then you can opt for the likes of coral, orange, and a warm blue. Alternatively, if you have a cool complexion then colours such as jade, silver and plum work well. The way you rock these glasses all depends on the colour you are going to go for.


And last but not least we have aviator style glasses. These have long been popular prescription sunglasses and are now finding a place in the world of prescription glasses too. This is a trend that shows no sign of slowing down and thus if you want to invest in a pair of sunglasses or glasses that are going to last you for years to come aviators are a great choice. Celebrity fans of this trend include; Cheryl Cole, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Aniston, Eva Longoria, Hayden Panettiere, Jennifer Lawrence, Khloe Kardashian, and Millie Mackintosh.

How do you wear this trend? When it comes to prescription sunglasses play to the contemporary and cool qualities of the glasses. Team with a trilby hat, a rocker vest, a pair of shorts and biker boots. When it comes to prescription glasses for everyday use go for quirky peg leg trousers, tuck in a plain shirt, and tie your hair in a loose ponytail.
