Sunglasses Trends To Elevate Your Look

Accessories are important when it comes to putting together an outfit. Sunglasses have always been the top two accessories and they are not number two. This is why they have continued to evolve and get better just like other fashion accessories. And bearing that in mind, let us discuss some sunglasses trends to elevate your look that would make a wonderful addition to your wardrobe.

Rectangular-Framed Sunglasses

These glasses are a little shift from the normal, although they are rectangular like most regular glasses, they are more stylish. They give off a modern, and simple vibe in comparison to other sunglasses on this list. Rectangular-framed sunglasses come in a variety of colors and patterns. If you want something classier and more formal, then you can simply go for a pair of black rectangular-framed glasses. But for something more upbeat and fun, you can get a pair of very colorful glasses. Of all sunglasses trends, this is the most common and the simplest, but it is still as stylish as the rest.

Wraparound Sunnies

Do not be fooled by its name, you do not wrap these glasses around your head. But they were given the name because they created the illusion that they are wrapped around your head. The wraparound sunnies are curved rather than pointed at the side like regular glasses. They are a Y2K refurbished/ futuristic fashion trend like many other fashion trends we see today. The wraparound sunnies may have been around for a while but are suddenly gaining some much-needed recognition. Rihanna and other celebrities have been spotted wearing this futuristic fashion accessory.

The wraparound sunglasses give off a playful carefree vibe, which is why they are mostly with outfits that give off the same energy as cargo pants and skirts, crop tops and other types of casual outfits. If you need sunnies that give you the playful, baddie/bad girl look, these are certainly the sunnies for you.

Cat-Eye Sunglasses

These are the oldest sunglasses trends in the books. The cat-eye sunglasses are an epic accessory that has been a part of myriads of other fashion trends that have come and gone. In fact, cat-eye sunglasses can be dated back to the early 2000s but unlike other glasses trends that disappeared but then resurfaced, the cat-eye sunglasses trend never disappeared. It only evolved and changed with the times.

Sports Sunglasses

These are glasses that have been worn by athletes and sports stars for ages. But with a few tweaks here and there, these glasses have become the latest fashion trend. These intense shades are aerodynamic and come with UV protection, so there is more than just a pair of sunglasses. Sports glasses are a special, one-of-a-kind type of glasses. This is why it is no surprise to see the heavy price tags attached to the sports glasses turned into a fashion accessory. Brands like Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, and Burberry flooded the runways a couple of years back with these glasses and ever since then there has been no turning back.


And that concludes the list of all the sunglasses trends to elevate your look. Whether you love cat-eye sunglasses or wraparound sunnies to stand out, there is something for everyone. I would also love to know what type of sunglasses are more of your style. Feel free to let me know in the comments. Do not forget to save this post for your shopping style inspiration.
