Fall/Winter 2017 Eyewear Trends

What is the “In” color this Fall?

We get asked this question all the time. Therefore we decided to share some of our Optical Fashion for Fall/Winter 2017 with you.

For the LADIES

Purple- whether it is violet, eggplant, or plum, all color shades of purple will replace your classic neutral in your wardrobe this Fall.

Oliver Peoples- Follies   $300 

Acetate material. Made in Italy.


For the Gentleman

Blue- make blue your new favorite color. It is a great transition into some color in your life. Navy and Denim is great for cool Fall and Winter months.

Lafont- Solti  $509

Titanium Material. Made in France. (ITEM IS SOLD)



Tortoise- Original blonde, brown tortoise or newly revamped colorful tortoise with purple and blues. Tortoise is always a winner and matches with most everything.

Paul Smith- Linzzi   Reg. $270  Sale Price: $216

Acetate Material. Made in Italy.



Metal vs. Plastic

Is one “more popular” than the other?

Metals are back in style, just as much as acetate frames.  Most metals are being worn as a “oversized” double bridge frame. Most acetates are worn with lots of color or extremely thick frames.

OPTIK! by Wissing   $375 

Acetate Material. Made in Germany.


Dutz- DZ660   $290 

Stainless Steel. Made in Holland.




What shape is a good fit for my face?

There is not “one” shape that’s right for your face shape.

A good Fall look for men: Round or Pilot shape. Double trouble: Aviator shape frames with a double bridge create a more retro, lively and dramatic look.

Dutz- DZ2182   $290 

Stainless steel/acetate material. Made in Holland.


Ladies: Try a round, cat-eye or larger rectangular shapes will create an instant lift to your face.    

Tom Ford- FT5353    $408   Acetate/Metal combination. Made in Italy

Lets not forget the Sunnies...

Oliver Peoples-  O'Malley   $450 

Acetate Material with Glass Mineral Lenses. Made in Italy.

This is a classic style that can be worn by both ladies and men. Round is trending!

Etnia Barcelona- Born Sun     $249

Metal double bridge Frame with Glass Mineral Lenses. Made in Spain.

Not only are round frames trending but, flat lenses with flashy mirror coatings. You can get your lenses made in just about any flash mirror you want. The color options are endless.

There you have it…

One size does not fit all. The options are endless and with more and more styles coming out every season, you should not feel bored with your Eyewear. Frames should not be “repeated” by wearing the same old style year after year.


If you have a large collection of shoes- you should have a large collection of Eyewear too!
