With summer coming to a close and those not too cold, but wonderfully golden, days of Fall making their way to us why not take a look at what’s cool in terms of sunglasses right now.
And for those of you who think sunglasses are just for summer – they’re really not!

So what is cool in the world of eyewear at the moment?
Well, surprisingly, tinted shade made a big comeback this year, despite their previous connotations with the likes of British comedian Ali Gi! This year those amber tinted shades are being taken more seriously. With a little celebrity endorsement and designers such as Louis Vuitton and Prada making them look cool on the catwalk, these seventies style retro shades are back. Think aviator, here!
In fact, as we’ve seen with the return of the amber tinted lenses, colour is still a big consideration. It was featured regularly on the catwalks of Paris and Milan this year, with the likes of Fendi, Trussardi and Banana Republic also sporting ombre lenses with a pinkish tint.
Clear lenses were still popular for this year’s Spring collections – if not quite as much as the coloured lenses – and with the likes of Chanel carrying the look into Fall with their own over-sized lenses then they can only be seen as both classy and chic. Clear frames are also the ones to go for if you’re into the ever-trendy geeky look. And for those of you who want to hang on to a little colour then clear lenses with a slight gradient darkening are an option, too.
Also predicted to be one of the top trends for Fall are what some fashion experts have been calling the “Bug Eye” look. In terms of lenses think either coloured or dark and again, of course, big or biggish.
So, while we’re now pretty clued up on the lenses front, what about those all important shapes and frames – or not, because not rimless is okay too . Well, as we already know, Fall frames are set to be big, nothing much new there – virtually all of us are familiar with those ever-popular trademark Gucci favourites.
In fact, virtually all of the designers are still making statements with large frames this year, however, for those of you who don’t want to get lost behind your eyewear then you won’t look out of place with some of the smaller options out there. Talking retro again, wired frames with smaller round lenses for you men out there are firmly back in. There is also a bit of a futuristic vibe going, if the ultra-cool metallic rimless ones, by the likes of the SteamPunk brand , are anything to go by.

In terms of shape there’s everything from round, square, octagonal , or those with a sophisticated upward slant. And if colour is big in lenses then it is no less so with frames, there are numerous bright and bold shades out there to choose from. A more conservative grey is big, too, along with a good selection of marbled, animalistic and multi-toned designs on offer.
