2022 Glasses Trends

Despite the challenges that faced us in 2020 and 2021, the new year presents a chance for us to turn over a new leaf and try something different — especially when it comes to our taste in glasses.

As we look forward to a brand-new twelve months filled with opportunity, we can also begin forecasting a few of the fashion trends that might come our way throughout each season. Even if you aren’t one to keep a close eye on the latest fashion developments, some of these predictions are guaranteed to pike your interest.

So, what does 2022 have in store for us? Overall, no one can say for sure. But for glasses, we can make a few guesses.

Without further ado, here are the top eyewear fashion trends to keep on your radar moving forward.

Aviators Grow in Popularity

Aviators have made quite the comeback over the past year or two, which is why this winning streak is likely to continue into 2022.

That’s right; no longer is this unconventional, eccentric look reserved for top-secret FBI agents and police officers. Today, those seeking a style with a bit of edge can turn to their favorite pair of aviator glasses to make their outfits pop.

On another note, it seems like most people will be leaning towards aviators with “double bars,” which stretch above the bridge. So, don’t forget to grab a pair from your favorite online retailer of glasses before they’re all gone!

Don’t Look Past Translucent Frames

2022 is all about personal growth and vulnerability, which could be why more people than ever are going to opt for translucent frames for their glasses moving forward.

Previously, most of these styles were quite simplistic, leading wearers to trade them in favor of other frames that could offer better styling choices. Today, that couldn’t be further from the truth, as there are hundreds of translucent frames available online in varying styles.

Whether you want an eyebrow-raising neon color, a wire core made of dazzling silver, or filigree patterns carved into the design, translucent frames offer all the customization options you deserve — except with an added touch of modernity.

Oversized Styles Remain a Go-to

Everyone loves a touch of extravagance (but not too much), which might be why oversized glasses are some of the hottest choices on the eyewear market.

With a frame that reaches nearly as high as their eyebrows, wearers can adopt a luxurious, fashion-forward appearance that works with virtually any outfit imaginable. Paired with materials like transparent acetate and wood, you will feel as if you’re strolling through a fashion show anywhere you take them.

As a bonus, wearers who use prescription lenses will benefit from the oversized look, as it offers an increased area of vision!

Being Square is In

Though perhaps not as widely adopted as their oversized counterparts, square frames remain some of the most interesting fashion accessories available. They provide one of the most authentic vintage feels of any glasses, making them perfect for lovers of old Hollywood-like glamour.

A Bit of Shade is Always Appreciated

Possibly one of the most obvious choices on this list, shaded lenses are clearly gearing up for a burst of popularity. Already, supermodels like Bella Hadid and Taylor Hill have been spotted wearing the accessories, proving that the glasses style is preparing for a comeback.

This frame is one of the most compelling choices thanks to its wide range of styling options, as you can purchase shaded lenses in almost any color imaginable. From bright yellows to calming, deep blues, you’ll have full range to express your creativity however you wish.  

That’s not all, though. The glasses’ shading also grants wearers additional protection against harmful UV rays, keeping them looking gorgeous and protected from the sun. And, if you wear a lighter shade, you’ll still be able to keep your glasses on when indoors.

Keep it Colorful

Speaking of color, vibrant frames are still a solid choice if you prefer to keep the lenses of your glasses clear.

Regardless of which style of frames you choose, you’ll find a wide range of colors available — especially if you’re shopping for glasses online. From intense reds to bright greens, these shades can help you make a statement with your fashion, or simply add a splash of creativity to your everyday look.
