Fashion for Fall/Winter 2010 is vintage in a big way, and that goes for eyewear too! Glasses and sunglasses have long surpassed their status as merely functional, and instead have become a chic and stylish accessory (think of them like you would a fantastic pair of shoes or a great bag). Lately, more and more designers are not only using eyewear on the runway, but actually have full designer lines coming out for each season. This season, there is no question; the look to go for is 1950s and 60s vintage. This retro look could partially have been influenced by the U.S. release of the John Lennon biography Nowhere Boy which includes some eyewear styles very similar to what we see coming off the runway. Below are some of the trends you’ll see going into the new year.
Think darker, thicker frames for the men…
And don’t forget about sunglasses! You’ll need them just as much for the winter sun! The classic aviator continues to be popular for both men and women, and the large, round frames of the 50s for the ladies are being seen on celebrities from here to Europe.
