Top Eyewear Trends of 2023

After two incredible weekends of eyewear in Milan and Munich, we are witnessing one of the most exciting years in eyewear fashion yet.

From classy to sassy and retro to eco-friendly, the styles coming in are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

We are in the process of compiling a comprehensive guide to this year’s hottest eyewear trends. We’ll share with you soon, but in the meantime, we wanted to provide you with an insider’s look at what to expect from eyewear fashion in 2023:

Insiders Top Trends of 2023

#1 Independent eyewear brands have always been the most vocal drivers of change within the fashion industry.  More and more designers are committed to using sustainable materials this year. Think natural wood, coffee beans, cork, and even recycled vinyl records.

#2 The Cat’s Eye design leads the eyewear runway once again. But this year the designs are even more sassy, and more spectacular, with an irresistible modern twist. Think unique patterns, colours, finishes, and contrasting metal accents.

#3 Bold, oversized, thick-rimmed glasses are back. But unlike 2022’s heavy square “dark Academia” rectangular frames, we are seeing more ‘rounded squares,’ which are gentler on the face, and add a distinctive yet modern look to the wearer.

#4 Remember the oval shapes of the 1990s? Well, after almost 30 years in limbo they are officially back! Only this time they have a bold and colourful twist, allowing you to show off these curvy frame favorites in a more fun and confident way.

#5 Geometric shapes continue to showcase fine metal and acetate frames, but this year they have been taken to a whole new level. Think bolder, chunkier, complex designs that are edgy, playful, and fun.

#6 Dubbed as the “new retro,” seventies style tints are back! The vintage look of tinted lenses is being recreated this year with vibrant red, orange, yellow, and even multi colour tints that make the ultimate style statement. (Especially when paired with glasses that look incredible on your unique and beautiful face).
