A sneak peak at the hottest trends in eyewear for 2017.

Think back to the days of your youth when showing up to school in glasses was quite possibly the scariest thing, due to concerns over how the other kids would treat you. Speaking from experience, this feeling was not a great one.  Most people these days need glasses to function better. Hello short-sighted me and half the people I know. But eyewear has come a long way from being just that – glasses we use to see better. They’re fashion, they’re polished, they’re cool, they’re funky, and they come in so many designs to match each and everyone’s personal style, it’s fantastic. Shopping for a pair of great spectacles these days is a lot of fun.

With everything from round wire shapes to vintage cat-eye styles, these glasses are quite possibly the most stylish we have ever seen. Your eyeglasses go further than just providing you with perfect vision. They can equally serve as a functional, fashion statement to compliment your wardrobe and fulfill the needs of your everyday, active lifestyle.

Retro profiles are made new with dynamic colorations of icy blues, burnt oranges, rustic browns and earthy olives. Clever details like layered metal plaques and temple effects reminiscent of the cars’ dashboard paneling are purposeful plays on an iconic brand.
