Actual glasses spring-summer 2021. Stylish tips
Fashion is a mirror image of our reality. The pandemic, the promotion of a healthy lifestyle, the need for self-expression, uniqueness and much more have an impact on the color and shape of our clothes and accessories.
In this article I will tell you about the most current models of sunglasses, I will teach you how to choose the right glasses for price, shape and style.
Today, on the catwalk, we see a large selection of various models from dense black to transparent colored, from narrow rectangular to hyper-volume, from sports models to elegant sparkling rhinestone frames. Everyone can find their perfect sunglasses for the summer.
Oversize models and face shields
The pandemic did not pass by the fashion for glasses. And this is no coincidence, because even in protective gear we want to look fashionable and stylish. Many designers have enhanced the protective function with cloth masks and balaclavas. This new trend is with us for a long time.
You can wear such models of glasses both with Oversize clothes, as suggested by Acne Studios, harmoniously fitting transparent frames into images with transparent textures, and in a contrasting combination with romantic and flying dresses, as Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini did.
Incognito or protection from publicity
The habit of being at home due to debt has prompted many of us to be reluctant to go out. This provoked the appearance in fashion of huge dark glasses of masks on the floor of the face or the most dense black glasses that help psychologically hide from society.
- black large frames
- dense black lenses
Lounge and sports
We have long preferred comfortable clothes to any other, and the same thing happened with glasses. Comfortable sports and rectangular models are gaining momentum, models in natural brown shades are very relaxing and soothing, and large glasses fit perfectly into the current oversized images.
- sports models
- brown lenses
- hypervolume glasses
Riot of color
During the long months of sitting at home and the absence of parties, many wanted outright bright colors, which we are now seeing in large numbers on the podium. There was a need to put on rose-colored glasses and get away from the gray reality.
- color contact lenses
- colored frames
Retro models have always been in vogue, but each time with a modern twist. Glasses “Cat’s Eye” have become more daring, aviators have increased in size and acquired unusual shapes, white frames have gone into sports. This is not a very durable trend, but if for someone it is a style-forming element, then it can be taken in serious brands.
Max Mara offers a modern interpretation of aviators in a more hypertrophied size and unusual geometric shape with lenses in warm brown-orange hues. Here we see 3 trends in one: oversize, modern aviators and brown lenses. We style them with loose models, with elements of the military in the form of overalls and cut like those of military aviation.
Creativity and individuality
For a long time and for a long time with us this vector is in fashion. Don’t be afraid to experiment and you won’t go unnoticed.
- non-standard geometry
- scarves on the souls and rhinestones on the frame
- fashion models imitating optics
Like any wardrobe item, glasses have three categories of models: basic, fashionable and style-forming. In this article I reviewed fashionable models and indicated how long each category can be relevant, but if you plan to invest wisely in your spectacle wardrobe, then I would recommend purchasing an actual base and style-forming models in the luxury segment, taking fashionable frames in the middle segment, which will be with us for at least 2-3 seasons, and fashionable fashion models for the image can be purchased in the mass market, but they often do not have a serious degree of protection from ultraviolet and UV rays.
How to choose glasses
The massiveness of glasses depends on facial features, the larger the face and its features, the larger the frame should be and vice versa.
The shape of the glasses depends on the lines of your face, for a geometric face, for example, like Angelina Jolie’s with a lot of angles, geometric or sporty shapes are suitable, a face with circles and smooth lines, like Scarlett Johansson’s, round or oval models with rounded corners are suitable.
The top line of the glasses roughly corresponds to the eyebrow line, but if you want to be fashionable and choose oversize models or, on the contrary, narrow models, then you can neglect this rule;
The glasses should not be much wider than the face.
Modern bow formulas are based on the combination of the incompatible. A game of contrast is in fashion. Create eclectic looks, that is, combining several styles from 2 or more.
For example, if you have chosen a classic look and you want to add dynamics, add sports glasses to it, and if you need to bring romance, then put on a cat’s eye or retro white frames, respectively. For greater harmony and connection of glasses with the image, select them according to the principle of similarity in color, texture, shape or style. And you will be irresistible.
