Women’s Eyewear: 2013 Fall Fashion Trends
Fall head-over-heels for this season’s ultra-chic new eyeglass and sunglass styles
Fresh off the runway, these three exciting trends in women’s eyeglasses and sunglasses will have your peepers pleading for a makeover this fall.
These fabulously feminine frames were made to be noticed. Flashy gemstone detailing, sassy temple embellishments, outrageous profiles, and flashy accent colors ensure that these glasses are anything but ordinary. Although the trend is dominated by chunky acetate frames, a few slimmer, more streamlined silhouettes have joined the fad as well.
Wallflowers, beware, as these glasses are sure to turn some heads this season.
These exaggerated cat-eye frames with their striking cherry-red color and glitzy silver temple detail definitely fit the va-va-voom vibe of this 2013 trend.
This aerodynamic profile from Tom Ford puts a modern twist on the retro cat-eye shape, adding gold metallic criss-cross details on the bridge and temples that are sure to draw some double-takes.
With a stark profile that does anything but blend in, these thick acetate frames by Prada were designed to grab headlines. The red floral detail on the inside of the arms adds a touch of girlishness that any femme fatale would be proud to wear.
Vintage shapes combined with luxe leather detailing embody this trend’s fondness for unexpected opulence. Pink lenses give the illusion of a coquettish blush that will delight any diva.
Faux wood finishes and earth tones combine with retro shapes in one of this season’s hottest runway looks. Throw-back profiles, like the wayfarer and clubmaster, lend popularity to this trend with their mass appeal. Meanwhile dark browns, greens, and other organic hues complemented by rustic wood and leather finishes convey a sense of pastoral sophistication that is both relaxed and wearable.
Take a step back this fall and revel in this trend’s return to nature.
