The good news is that 2021 is here, even if we are greeted by new lockdowns (along with cold, overcast weather). After experimenting with Work From Home glasses throughout the year, it's safe to predict that the 2021 collection will be a riot of both fresh, experimental statements and timeless classics.
To find the ideal pair of glasses, keep these simple guidelines in mind:
The pandemic has strongly influenced this year's glasses trends, as evidenced by an unbelievable variety of over-sized frames. According to some experts, we are seeing more large-sized frames that cover our eyes and provide protection against the virus. Trends in eyewear are gradually moving away from micro, mid-90s frames and toward large face-shielding options. The retro "granddaddy glasses," on the other hand, are back in style.
Glasses with a thin rim are popular. Nothing beats a pair of sleek gold or rose-gold rimmed metal frames for style. You won't look anything less than an Instagram influencer if you pair them with simple plain colours.
Though round glasses have been popular for several years, this season's focus is on metal-rimmed round frames from the 1980s and 1990s. Try these round frame high-nose bridge glasses because nothing beats round glasses in muted colours for a casual but elegant look.
These styles were already in the eyewear collection, but they were never on the list of hot trends. Wooden glasses, on the other hand, are ready to fill all of the optical stores around, with tweaked designs that include more wearable options and added colours. Pair with your funkiest outfits and ace the 2021 glasses trend.
One of the eyewear styles from last year that has again made its place in the hot trends of the season (and why not) is the clear, transparent frames style. With added glamour of subtle pastel tints like light blue, pink, green, peach and grey, and unique designs like half-metal and half-transparent, transparent glasses are here to stay for many more seasons.
Ditching those micro frames that were trending last year, the eyewear market has presented more wearable options, though with added funk. Geometric glasses like octagon, hexagon, square and rectangle are excellent to highlight or accentuate your facial features, especially if you have a round face. Look at these grey lilac octagon glasses, perfect for both party night-overs and professional meet-ups.
The beautiful cat-eye glasses with exaggerated rims, classic tortoise or bright colours on a crystalline body are sure to make a statement. You have a frame for every game.
We've all spent far more time on screens than our eyes can handle as a result of the lockdown. The spectrum of light includes blue light rays. They move at a high rate, causing damage to human eyes such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and Dry Eye Syndrome. We have had a hard time struggling with dry, irritated eyes.
It was fortunately not too late to experiment with blue light blocking glasses. As more people become aware of the negative effects of blue light, anti-blue light glasses will become more popular in 2021.
