Eyewear Trends for 2015

glasses

Steve Jobs had round rimless frames. Harry Potter had round plastic frames. Just a few years ago, every NBA press conference featured a player sporting a lens-free pair of frames to make a fashion statement.

Despite all the options out there for corrective vision these days, those of us who have opted to stay with glasses know they represent our style. They give us a special flare that accents our personalities.

Eyeglasses can act as props – remove your glasses and lean in for a moment of intensity; lean back to reflect on a complex concept; or just slip them off to rub your face for a moment and gather your thoughts before attacking the latest blog article. But as nice as it is to take them off, your glasses are going to spend most of their time on your face. You need them to make a statement that is you. 

Cat Eyes

For 2015, feline is back in. A nice pair of cat-eye frames could be the trendy style you’re looking for, and they’re sure to make those around you purr with envy. Go adventurous with a pair of frames in daring red or bold blue, or maybe a combination of the two. You’ll find plenty of options with a wide range of colors and patterns. For a more traditional style, you can go with white or black frame; or maybe classic tortoise shell is more “you”.

Angular

Another great option to consider in 2015 is the classic square-shaped frames. They can highlight your inner librarian or the sleeker, retro styles of the 60’s and 70’s. You could opt for the modern simplicity of a rimless version, or find the contemporary-traditional middle ground in a half-frame.

Functional

If you care about function rather than form, the frame material and construction will be more important to you. The latest eyewear styles in 2019 are built to last: from the simplicity of plastic frames to the durability of titanium.

One functional feature you might want to seriously consider in any style you choose is the spring-hinged frame. The spring allows for a comfortable fit that keeps your glasses from sliding down your nose.

With the available combinations of style, color, and materials, you’re sure to find a frame as unique as you are. From an audacious a pair of cherry red frames to a sleek pair of rimless glasses, the styles in 2015 are sure to let you be you.
