Spring/Summer 2012 Eyewear Trends

Posted on March 1st, 2012 by clvc

A spring and summer wardrobe would not be complete without this season’s must-have accessory: statement frames. From daring geometrics to classic designs, both sunglasses and eyewear are being seen as wearable art.  Rose-tinted lenses and subtle touches of glitter will provide you with the ultimate beauty rush you’ve been searching for.


Cat eye sunglasses have been very trendy for a few seasons already and will remain as hot during Spring/ Summer 2012.  Eyewear in this shape comes in different colors and can be playful or more austere.  Pretty pinks and pastels, amber and honey hues and soft milky tortoise update classic shapes and inject new life into this spring’s take on cat-eyes.

Unusual shape

Sunglasses in quirky unusual shapes are back in vogue and can be a perfect choice for those who aren’t afraid to attract attention.


Round glasses are classic and have been a favorite of celebrities for years, but for this season round sunglasses won’t be that simple.  Frames and lens will be in different hues and frames can come with patterns or jewel-encrusting.


Aviators continue to be a flawless frame choice and this season’s eyewear is now offering matte finishes, metal detailing, shields, two-toned frames, colored lenses and blacked out styles for that edgy alternative to the classic frame.

Gradient Hues

Sunglasses with gradient lens continue to be popular this season.

Contrast Glasses

Designers keep it interesting when frame and lens come in different and often quite contrasting colors.
