4 Sunglasses Trends for 2018

In celebration of the last day of Fashion Week in New York, we pulled together our favorite trends for sunglasses in 2018. We’re seeing lots of bold shapes and colors, pushing the envelope on more traditional styles. In contrast, we do see lots of classic shapes making a comeback, like round sunglasses and wire frame eyewear. Keep scrolling to see our top 4 trends in sunglasses this year.
