2016 Spring Fashion

Setting your sights on spring styles and colors? Here’s a look at seven 2016 Spring fashion trends that are sure to turn a few heads:

  1.    Round and Round

The shape of things to come this spring is definitely round, particularly when donning sunglasses. Round frames are retro and contemporary, funky and sophisticated—in other words, just right.

  1.   Crazy Contours

Strange, futuristic shapes abound. Let’s just say if you’re looking to keep a low profile, this is not for you. Spring promises a potpourri of octagons, stars, hearts and super-sized squares and circles, not to mention a few silhouettes that truly defy description.

  1.    Nine Lives

First introduced in the ’50s as the essence of femininity, the cat’s eye frame has never really gone out of style. The 2016 variation on this theme takes us from house cat to wildcat with bold, dramatic designs. Understatement is not this cat’s meow.

  1.   Saluting Aviators

As the name suggests, aviator frames were once the exclusive domain of World War II fighter pilots. For those looking to land a pair this spring, consider modern updates like round lenses, metal bridges and translucent plastic frames.

  1. Pretty in Pink

When Pantone, the purveyor of all things color related, announced that Rose Quartz was its 2016 color of the year, the fashion world took notice. Not surprisingly, frames featuring the kinder, gentler shades of rosy pinks, pale blues, dusty greys and misty taupes are making their debut this spring.

  1. Focus on Lenses

From clear to very (very) dark and just about every color of the rainbow in between, lenses are asserting themselves as both fashionable and functional. Just look at the ombre lens: it’s dark at the top and lighter at the bottom, giving you stylish practicality.

  1. When Bling is the Thing

Sometimes frames are about the embellishments and adornments. This spring anything goes, including animal-print patterns, jewels, colorful gemstones and crystals.
