Men’s Eyewear: 2013 Fall Trends
Breeze into fall with this season’s spotlight on swank
These three major†trends in men’s eyeglasses and sunglasses incorporate something for everyone, from minimalists to extroverts, this fall.
Old-school shapes take on a rugged edge with this season’s move towards earth-tones combined with leather and wood finishes. Familiar profiles, like the clubmaster, aviator, and Beatles rounds, take on a more relaxed look with the inclusion of outdoorsy elements. Sentimental gentlemen will enjoy how the warm color palette of this trend teams up with earthen trims to create a visage of eclectic refinement.
