Creative and unique shapes and materials are a staple for standing out with your eyewear. Wood, marble, horn and many other exclusive materials paired with exaggerated CatEyes and oversized rounds create fun and interesting frames.


Don’t be afraid of some color in your eyewear. We are seeing many shades of blue, red, green and purple trending right now in both sunwear and optical styles. Deeper tones can provide a refined look that still makes a statement.


Patterns and prints are always a great choice for the most daring. Brands such as OWP, Lafont and WOOW are currently offering bold design choices in their most recent collections for those searching for a one-of-a-kind look.


Deluxe materials such as gold, titanium, marble and buffalo horn put the “lux” in luxury eyewear. Swarovski crystals and precious gemstones also give frames that high-end sparkle.
