What’s in fashion this spring/summer
For a true fashionista, the world of fashion doesn’t just stop with the clothes that we wear. Having a stylish pair of glasses and sunglasses is the perfect way to finish off the look. So with summer upon us - what are the styles that you should be looking for?
What’s in fashion for women?
Spring and summer 2012 fashions for women haven’t seen a drastic change since last year. Large frames are still very popular and the celebrity-favourite wayfarers are also very much still on-trend.
The key difference to look out for is colour - and lots of it. Just as you may have noticed that fluoro and pastel colours are big news in clothes this season, it is the same for glasses and sunglasses. While you may not be ready to sport some 70’s style fluoro frames, there are a great range of more subtle coloured frames on the market to choose from.
Another daring trend hitting glasses this season is statement glamour. Think fanciful shapes, crystal adornments and lace.
What’s in fashion for men?
For the men, there are a huge range of choices if you want some on-trend specs. Basic black is still very much in fashion, but tortoiseshell and manly colours such as greens, blues and reds are a popular choice this season.
A growing trend for the men is a rustic, outdoorsy style lens. Any increasing amount of frames are being made from natural and recycled products such as aluminium and wood.
How do I choose the best fashion glasses?
The best way to choose the best fashion glasses for you is to head to your Toowoomba optometrist who can show you the latest products and advise you as to which ones will suit your face shape and features.
Your optometrist can also give you an eye exam to ensure your prescription is accurate before buying your new frames.
