When Summer Goes Pop: Eyeglasses Trend

NEW YORK, May 21, 2012/ — As one of the favorite accessories, eyeglasses make no exceptions in terms of fashion. Eyewear is now the perfect – and affordable- fashion statement. As seen in every major runway show, retro is, this summer, the main inspiration. The keyword? MadMen.

To keep with this 50’s trend, shape is very important. From cat-eye to big-D frame, eyeglasses need to be colorful and bold. In fact, the bigger, the better.

Moreover, prefer shiny frames instead of matte, in order to give some sparkle to your eyes and face. It will have never been so easy to have this smart and sexy looks, that seemed to be a must for every 50’s celebrities, from Audrey Hepburn to Marilyn.

This summer, the more avant-garde fashionistas will fall for big cat-eyes Prada-like frames, while the more classics will prefer half rim glasses, like the one features in the Bottega Venetta show, which are less showy and more conventional, but equally colorful.

Coming in a wide range of colors, from soft mint to fire red via turquoise or nude, frames will add this je-ne-sais-quoi to any outfits.

And remember don’t be afraid to experiment and to keep up with your inner Joan Holloway. May be just add some red lipstick.
