2018 sunglass trends via laurenconrad.com

This season, sunglasses are on the true forefront of accessory trends. For a while there, we were seeing practically the same sunglasses year after year. But recently fashion girls have started taking risks with their sunglasses again, and there are so many new trends to try. Don’t get me wrong; I’ll always be a fan of my wayfarers and oversized square sunnies. But I’m also excited to branch out and try some more fashion-forward frames. When it comes to purchasing a new pair of sunnies, you still want to take your face shape into account, of course. No matter how cute or trendy a certain pair is, it may not work on certain people. But with so many new styles of sunnies available, chances are there is at least one that you will want to snag this season. Without further ado, here are four sunglass trends I’m loving for summer 2018…

Retro Cat-Eyes
Slight cat eye shapes have been popular for a while now, but this season the cat eye frame has gotten even more defined and a little more daring. Go for a classic oversized cat-eye or try a slimmer pair for an even trendier version. Keep in mind that cat eye glasses work best for square, oval, and heart face shapes.

Printed Frames
Gucci and Dolce & Gabanna popularized the printed frame you’ve been seeing this season, but there are plenty of options at a more affordable price point too. Here are a few that caught my eye…

Oval Frames
Like the slim cat eye, this style might look familiar to my fellow ‘90s kids. I wasn’t sure if the oval frame would ever make a comeback, but I’m glad it did. This style of sunnies screams ‘Cher Horowitz,’ and I’m personally pretty into it.

Circle Frames
Round frames have been widely popular for the past few seasons, but a more perfect circle is a more current take on this style. This shape works well for square and oval face shapes.

Red Frames
Red is the new black when it comes to sunnies. You can look for a couple of red frames coming soon to my Kohl’s collection too.

Which one of these trends is most your style?
