TREND #1
NEW NEUTRALS
The FYSH F-2034 from WestGroupe is a sand-colored retro-square acetate sunglass that ushers in the key neutral hue trend of the season.

TREND #2
RAISING EYEBROWS
Giving a major nod to the boldly going brow bar trend, the Marni ME2627 from Marchon is a sophisticated, oversized round silhouette with a gold metal brow bar rimming above and below the top of the frame—and the burgundy hue leans right into the important utility and neutrals trends of the season.

TREND #3
TAKING FLIGHT
Butterfly shapes are a new silhouette du jour ’round the globe. The Celine CL50022F from Thélios is a statement-making oversized black butterfly-wing style making its own flight pattern.

TREND #4
COLOR REIMAGINED
Color blocking is a key trend in eyewear and ready-to-wear this season. The CH Carolina Herrera VHE800 from De Rigo REM steps right up in black acetate punctuated with a light pink upper rim + white lower rim.

TREND #5
PASTEL ON POINT
From mellow yellow to dreamy baby blue, pastel hues are on trend in specs and apparel for the season. Get on board with STATE Optical Co.’s Rush sunglass in Sapphire Frost iridescent acetate in a standout diamond shape.

TREND #6
BLING FOR MILES
Glittering details are de rigueur for spring—the bigger, the bling-ier, the better. The Jimmy Choo SIRYN/S from Safilo pumps up the volume with an oversized wrap shield sunglass with a sparkling upper rim decorated with Swarovski crystals.

TREND #7
IT’S A WRAP
The wrap sunnie is back in force, especially when emblazoned with logos and bling. Stella McCartney sunglass style SC0195S from Kering Eyewear brings it on in full ’80s homage with a gold wire frame lit up with the designer’s name delivered in studs across the front of the lens.

TREND #8
DOT CALM
Polka-dot patterns rise to the top this season, from frocks to specs, in a season that embraces black and white as a mantra. Here, the Valentino VA3031 from Luxottica deals a winning hand in a dark brown tortoise flat-cat acetate frame with the Valentino classic rhinestone studs as a punctuation point.
