Trends in eyewear for summer 2022


Sun­glass­es are an es­sen­tial ac­ces­so­ry in sum­mer for their abil­i­ty to ex­alt any out­fit or style. This year, eye­wear fash­ion will be sus­tain­able and vin­tage, es­pe­cial­ly from the 1970s and 2000s, made with in­no­v­a­tive ma­te­ri­als and sport­ing new shapes and new col­ors. OVER­SIZED sun­glass­es, with frames that cov­er the whole face, have been all the rage in the 2022 Spring-Sum­mer col­lec­tions. “Shield­ing” a por­tion of your face be­hind huge sun­glass­es lends an air mys­tery and al­lure, and you can add a touch of class with gra­di­ent col­ors and flow­ing lines. Trend eng.jpg Guc­ci has come out with an over­sized mod­el fea­tur­ing yel­low, moth­er-of-pearl bio-ac­etate. These square-framed sun­glass­es hear­ken back to the style of the 60s and 70s. The wide tem­ples bear the name of the fash­ion house, and the gra­di­ent-brown lens­es com­plete the retro look. Trend eng2.jpg

CAT-EYE and BUT­TER­FLYmod­els are al­ways in fash­ion, a fa­vorite of Hol­ly­wood stars of the 50s and 60s. Ex­treme shapes paired with in­no­v­a­tive col­ors and de­tail­ing bring these clas­sic frames into the mod­ern age. Trend eng3.jpg

Cat-eye ac­etate mod­els in both clas­sic styles, such as black and tor­toise-shell, and bold col­ors like hon­ey-yel­low, pur­ple, and bright green. One of the most icon­ic mod­els of the lat­est Dior sum­mer col­lec­tion is the Miss Dior B1U, which fea­tures an el­e­gant, but­ter­fly frame, a mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the clas­sic bi­fur­cat­ed de­sign of the 1950s. The orig­i­nal, ul­tra-thin gold frames pair per­fect­ly with lens­es in a range of col­ors. The real rev­o­lu­tion, though, lies in the col­ors, mov­ing past the clas­sic black and tor­toise-shell to also of­fer bold, play­ful pas­tels. COL­OR is al­ways a hot top­ic for spring and sum­mer, such as sun­glass­es plucked right out of the 2000s sport­ing su­per-col­or­ful lens­es and frames in yel­low, pur­ple, pink, or­ange, and more. Valenti­no has gone with Very Peri (Pan­tone Col­or of the Year 2022) for its icon­ic eye­wear. Trend eng4.jpg

Swarovs­ki, too, is of­fer­ing up bold col­ors with this pair of sun­glass­es fea­tur­ing dis­tinc­tive crys­tal de­tail­ing. The match­ing col­or of the lens­es in­fus­es the wear­er with a sense of bliss. Trend eng5.jpg

Bold col­ors are also the or­der of the day for the su­per-col­or­ful frames of these CE­LINE sun­glass­es, paired with lens­es tint­ed in more tra­di­tion­al col­ors. Trend eng6.jpg

SHIELDS are an ever-pop­u­lar choice, whether you pre­fer soft­er, more so­phis­ti­cat­ed lines than in years past or some­thing a lit­tle more cre­ative. Per­fect for ei­ther a ca­su­al or more so­phis­ti­cat­ed look, this type of eye­wear is par­tic­u­lar­ly pop­u­lar for sports, but is also great for street fash­ion or paired with a trendy busi­ness look. Trend eng7.jpg

Shield sun­glass­es pro­vide max­i­mum pro­tec­tion from the sun’s rays, and mir­ror lens­es are back with a vengeance with sil­ver and gold fin­ish­es. Trend eng8.jpg One icon­ic mod­el is Fen­di’s new DIS­CO eye­wear. The met­al frame cre­ates a shield ef­fect and looks great with ei­ther sol­id or gra­di­ent-col­or lens­es and tem­ples. The 80s-style logo and mir­ror fin­ish make these sun­glass­es a must-have for the sum­mer sea­son. An­oth­er fash­ion re­vival comes in the form of GEO­MET­RIC eye­wear. These trendy sun­glass­es range from small, min­i­mal­ist rec­tan­gu­lar frames in 1990s Ma­trix style to square, hexag­o­nal, oval, or even di­a­mond-shaped frames. Ba­len­ci­a­ga’s Bat Rec­tan­gle sun­glass­es in black, in­ject­ed bio-ny­lon with gray lens­es are just one of the many styles in the Red Car­pet Sum­mer 22 col­lec­tion. Trend eng10.jpg

Kartell, a renowned de­sign­er of plas­tic fur­ni­ture and oth­er in­te­ri­or de­sign fea­tures, has also put out a line of sun­glass­es, such as the mod­el Lam­i­na, which fea­tures over­lap­ping shapes and thick­ness­es that mim­ic Kartell’s icon­ic fur­nish­ings and show off the brand’s dis­tinc­tive pro­duc­tion tech­niques. OVAL eye­wear is one of the coolest styles for sum­mer 2022. The trendi­est mod­els are the col­or­ful sun­glass­es in ac­etate by Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo, fea­tur­ing thick, light­weight tem­ples sport­ing the clas­sic Fer­rag­amo logo in gild­ed met­al. An­oth­er mod­el that has been fly­ing off the shelves is by the in­flu­encer Chiara Fer­rag­ni, an ex­plo­sion of bold, charis­mat­ic col­or. Trend eng11.jpg

To al­ways be up on the lat­est trends, this sum­mer we rec­om­mend pair­ing your sun­glass­es with a cool chain or strap! The most pop­u­lar styles are those with beads in bold or nat­ur­al col­ors that you can cus­tomize with words or fun flow­ers and fruits! The ma­jor brands, too, are com­ing out with chains and straps for their icon­ic eye­wear. Guc­ci, for ex­am­ple, has a bold black chain in resin, while Fen­di and Chanel have gone with pre­cious met­als and logo charms. Trend eng12.jpg

At times, though, we for­get that sun­glass­es must first pro­tect our eyes from the sun’s rays, which is more im­por­tant than how we look when we’re wear­ing them. This is why, when choos­ing a pair of sun­glass­es, we must first look to the qual­i­ty of the lens­es. In oth­er words, qual­i­ty sun­glass­es of­fer a com­bi­na­tion of func­tion­al­i­ty and style.

Have a great sum­mer!
