Eyewear Trends for 2016
Day four of 2016 and we're relishing the fresh feeling of a new year. When the ball drops each year and we welcome a new page on the calendar, we start to get really excited about what the new year will bring in eyewear. What new trends will find their way into our office? What colors and textures will be popular with our patients? We sat down with Elizabeth, our lead optician and style savvy extraordinaire, and asked her what eyewear trends she is looking forward to in 2016.
"Lots and lots of color!" was Elizabeth's first observation. "Our customers are loving a pop of color now," so are we - with brands like Bevel, Jono Hennessy and Face a Face putting out really bold and exciting color options, it's a trend that can't be ignored.
Elizabeth pointed out that classic, bold plastic frames in both black and tortoise do really well with our patients and she doesn't see that trend going anywhere in 2016. It's a stylish choice that works well for work and play.
A favorite of Elizabeth's and celebs alike? Barton Perreira's beautiful classic frames. Their vintage twist makes for a laid back but uber stylish look.
Round frames are making a huge comeback. Our best selling round frame is from ProDesign, it is a stylish combination of modern titanium and a vintage shape.
