It’s been a few weeks since Fashion Week in NYC ended, but the hottest designers and street fashion have shown us the new way for eyewear for this fall season for both men and women.  So if you’re looking to keep up with the latest modern trends or want to upgrade your frame style, then look no further. We’ve got the best five styles for glasses and sunglasses for you of the season:

To start off, we all know the best piece of fashion for the fall is obviously glasses.  For some reason, the cool air, pumpkin spice smell, and fallen leaves make glasses an iconic staple.  Then it’s no wonder that these frames ruled NY fashion week and others worldwide. 

Graduated Color/Tortoiseshell Frames:


These frames have never been hotter than they are for this season.  They are an updated look from solid dark or neutral frames to add a contemporary flair to your wardrobe.  Be it the tortoiseshell or colors that gradually transition, the color differences are a subtle statement.  As a note for transition colors, try to find colors that start with the darker one on top and the lighter on the bottom.  The best thing about these frames are the many color palettes available for everyone.

Clear or transparent acetate frames are a beautiful mix of modern and vintage.  This is a perfect frame for both men and women, as the minimalist look can be for anyone.  If you are in the market for some elegance, this beautiful look is for you, plus the slightly frosted look will help segway into the colder weather.

Wireframes have started popping up in street fashion as both glasses and sunglasses.  The lightness of these frames holds to be popular for young people wanting to ride the retro train back in time.  But for the rest of us that don’t care so much for that, wireframes can be worked into a variety of shapes, not just round or oval.  Flattering for men and women, the unisex trend adds a bit of timelessness to really make those youngsters look, but only at your frames.

The sun may not be as bright as it was in the summer months right now, but that doesn’t mean sunglasses are out.  Quite far from the truth!  These two sunglasses styles follow the summer’s trend of tints and bold frames. 

Yellow Tints: 


The summer was so beautiful and bright that designers wanted to keep those feelings around by adding yellow hues to sunglasses.  The color itself is energizing and would work well with most frames and especially that of aviator shapes.  If solid yellow tints aren’t your thing, then you can always go for the ombré or even a shade of amber or less bold colors like oranges too.  This look may not be for everyone, but those that want to add some warmth to the cooling weather then this is must-have.



In an odd contrast, squared or rectangular frames are taking a strong stand in the fashion world this year.  Plastic and acetate frames work well with this shape to thoroughly express it’s bold form and can work with almost any color.  But the softer approach can be taken if made with metal or wireframes, as it will still have a refined appeal if the angles are less harsh and rounded. 

The fashion of frames this year came from a mix of the old and the new fit for everyone.   So if you’re looking to up your frame game, look no further than these new classic additions to your style.
