Whether making a statement at work or running errands around town, eyewear is a game-changing accessory that can enhance the look of any outfit. MyEyeDr., a full-service optometric vision care company, provides frames with unique materials, shapes and bold colors that enable everyone to look great while correcting their vision and protecting their eyes.

With so much to choose from, here are the top trends for eyewear this season:

Bold Colors and Patterns

Showcase your personality and style with this season’s hottest eyewear. Bright, bold colors can really make you standout in the dreary fall and winter months. Yellow and vibrant blue frames are a great way to add a pop of color to your style. For a more subtle but still fashionable option, consider an unexpected pattern such as snakeskin or floral prints. Brands to look for are Diane von Furstenberg and Bebe.

Unexpected Details and Materials

This season’s color palette makes a statement while unique details and materials more subtly provide a fashionable touch. Look for eyewear with refined jewelry embellishments, engravings and beautiful brand detailing that all perfectly complement the eyewear. Frames finished with crystal detailing, wood and marble are other on-trend materials to look out for. Brands to look for are Joseph Abboud, Valentino and Salvatore Ferragamo.

Shapes to Complement Any Taste

This year is all about beauty-enhancing shapes and styles that complement all facial structures. If you choose a bold color, you might consider a simple round or square shape frame. If you’re all about bold shapes and sizes, consider cat eye, aviator, oversized or even retro frames. With so many stylish shapes available, it’s easy to pick and choose eyewear that will either stand out or be understated compared to other bold accessories you’re wearing that day. Brands to look for are Anne Klein, Airlock and Nine West

Style Meets Performance

Eyewear is performing better than ever this season with new sport options such as floatable sunglasses and optical frames that bend. Performance eyewear makes a great second pair designated specifically for your athletic endeavors. Of course, fashion meets function to ensure that even your performance eyewear looks great no matter where and when you’re wearing it. Brands to look for are Dragon and Nike.

“Eyewear can really make a statement about your personality. No matter what your style is today, there are great trends to match it this season,” said Sue Downes, CEO of MyEyeDr. “At MyEyeDr., our fitting specialists evaluate your face structure and personal style to hand pick eyewear from our extensive collections that perfectly complements you.”
