#1 Clear Frames
Clear frames aren’t entirely new, as they have been spotted around the last couple of years here and there, but the trend is picking up and picking up fast. Regardless of shape or thickness, clear frames are the latest and greatest. This trend is mostly correlated with prescription glasses or glasses with clear lenses, but it can be applied to sunglasses as well.
Clear frames look great on everyone, they are unisex, and you can apply the trend to any thickness and style that fits the frame and shape of your face. The transparent frames have been spotted on multiple Instagram influencers, as well as several big-name celebrities. Another really great aspect of the clear frame is that it is as neutral as it gets and will match any outfit of your choice.
#2 Aviators are classic
Aviators have been in style for quite some time, and it doesn’t look like the trend is going anywhere. This classic look is unisex and looks great on pretty much everyone. Aviators were originally designed for pilots in about 1936 to protect their eyes while in flight, but the style was too great for it not to catch on in the fashion world as well. Ray-Ban is famous for their aviator designs and other designers have also joined in. All different colors and sizes are available, but combine the trend of clear frames and you’ve got one of the number one styles of 2019.
#3 Simple frames
When it comes to eyewear, this year, less is more. In 2019 you are going to see more glasses showcased with super-slim and thin frames and super simple style. These frames will be delicate and light, but still bold. Thin frames will be used with all different shapes, from oval to the cat-eye, to aviator. One of the most popular glasses of simplicity will be small oval shaped frames. Also, expect to see the frames in various colors too.
#4 Color is in
Color is in, and this goes from prescription eyewear and sunglasses. For prescription glasses expect to see cool colors on the frames, and for sunglasses, expect to see bold and cool colors of the lenses. From rose-colored lenses to navy, to green, to yellow, to magenta, to blue, expect to see some stand out color sunglasses in 2019.
#5 The cat eye is back
Probably the biggest and most unexpected come-back eyewear trend in 2019 will be the cat-eye shape. We have seen this shape trending in places like Europe in 2018, but they are making their debut in America in 2019. The cat-eye trend first originated in as early as the 1950s and 1960s, and has now made a huge comeback among the millennials and will continue to be a trend throughout 2019.
