The forgotten Accessory: Spring 2013 Sunglasses trends

In Blogs by Yvette Estime

As a Florida resident, sunglasses play an important role since the sun stays up to 7pm! Of course, sunglasses are not just a necessary. They also allow us to portray a cool and relaxed demeanor. So here is some trends in sunglasses, we just love.

New Shape

Ray Ban Octagon sunglasses

We loved the cartoon graze that covered the runway but these octagonal shapes create all new angles for the face. For a sophisticated look, get them in wire styles like the ray bans above or go for a acrylic in a bright color for a more fun look.

Something old becomes new again

Oversized UV sunglasses at Chanel

These shades were once made popular by the older set who wanted to protect there eyes from all four corners. Now, these shades have become a staple for the more affluent crowd. Oversized UV sunglasses graced the runway at Chanel as seen above.

It’s not just for Clothes

Dolce & Gabbana oversized printed sunglasses

Adornment and prints on sunglasses are another trend gracing the runway. Dolce and Gabbana were one of the designers that showcased prints on oversized sunglasses.

It’s not just for jewelry

As statement jewelry is on it’s way out, other accessories have taken it’s place. Sunglasses in bold colors, reflective lenses and unusual shapes are the next big thing to grace your face and enhance your wardrobe. We also saw clear shades as a trend which mimics the lucite trend in jewelry.
