Top Frame Trends in 2014
The new year is a great time for new glasses and this season’s new trends do not disappoint. Between mens’ and womens’ lines you’ll see hints of vintage influence, pops of color, and classic sophistication. Our opticians are excited about all of the new, fabulous styles!
Ladies, ring in the new year with a vintage flair! Retro and vintage are all the rage in today’s womens’ fashions. The years of geek are gone. The boxier shapes of “geek-chic” have given way for softer lines and more arched shapes. The classic cat-eye shape has gained more prominence in the current season’s frame lines. But this cat has a new “meow”. The cat-eye shape is classic, but the designers like Judith Leiber and Coach have put a fresh spin on these specs. The new Leiber designs feature a hint of “bling” along with these softer shapes. Coach has brought not only the classic shape of the cat-eye, but the classic color of tortoise-shell to mix with some brighter, unexpected pops of color.
Purple is reigning in 2014 as well! Pantone named “Radiant Orchid” the color of the year and our frames designers got the memo! You will see this vibrant purple tone all throughout our shelves, as designers have integrated it into all of their lines. And what’s not to love! It’s a classic color that brings brilliance to many skin tones and can bring great color to any look!
Men’s styles are hanging strong in the sophisticated, nerdy styles of years past. Classic retro styles have dominated the men’s frames styles for years and this season is no exception. Look for harder lines and heavier frames where the glasses make a sophisticated statement! The retro combination of metal and horn or plastics is also wildly popular. The truly classic Ray Ban spectacle is back in some of their mens’ styles this season.
No matter what you’re looking for this season, the frame styles will not disappoint. Colorful and retro, your frames can surely make a great statement to start out your 2014. Our optical is always on the lookout for the best new styles across all of our lines.
