Trends So Far for 2018

It’s hard to believe that 2018 is coming to a close already – so let’s recap what some of the trends and styles have been for the year so far!

2018 has been a year of reinventing the classic frames from the past.

We’ve seen a revival of both the aviators and cat eye style of frames, done with a modern twist to keep them looking sleek and stylish.

If you’re looking for something distinctive – tortoise shell patterns have made their way back into fashion. Paired with a horn-rimmed style frame, like the Dita Statesmen, and you’re sure to be looking great.

Another classic – you can still never go wrong with bold, black rimmed frames. Squared or round, and often oversized, these frames are sure to make a statement.

If you’re not a fan of large or over-the-top styles, you’re in luck because also making a resurgence are thin, wire frames. These styles are usually thin and lightweight which means not only will you be stylish, but comfortable wearing these frames all day. Try a pair, like the Linda Farrow LFL 520.

So what has been your favourite trend of 2018 so far? If you’re undecided, head on down to SPEX to try out some new styles yourself!
