5 Glasses Trends to Keep an Eye Out for in 2021

Glasses are a fantastic way to convey your personal style and character to the world. They're also great at elevating your overall style or communicating a professional or fun persona. No matter the goal for your glasses, the following five styles will help you accurately express yourself and stay on trend for this year and the ones after it. 

1. Big frames: For anyone in a position of power, big frames are a must. Think Martin Scorsese or Anna Wintour. This type of frame oozes glamour and makes a statement that is sure to last for decades to come. 

2. Round frames: What springs to mind when you think of round frames? Most likely John Lennon. This style of frame is proof that certain ones will never go out of style and can be confidently worn from one decade to the next. Those with an oval or square face shape will benefit the most from this sort of frame.

3. Slim and thin frames: This style of frame has gained great popularity over the past few years. We're betting its meteoric rise will continue. The best face shapes for slim and thin frames are heart-shaped and oval ones. If you happen to have an oval face shape, consider yourself lucky. Most types of frames will fit you beautifully.

4. Monochromatic lenses and frames: Matching has always been in style. Which is why having lenses and frames of the same colour is not soon to fall out of fashion. The uniformed look these frames provide communicates confidence and fun with one simple and easy to use accessory. 

5. Old-school aviators: Ever since the 70s old-school aviators have been a fashion accessory staple. Don't expect them to go anywhere anytime soon. Exuding a cool and intense style, these types of frames best suit people who have a square face shape.
