8  Fall Eyewear Trends You Need to Know About in 2018

Now that fall is upon us, the changing of seasons means a change in fashion. There’s one accessory that most take for granted, one that really frames your face.

That’s right, we’re talking about sunglasses. The first thing that a person notices about you are your eyes, which is why the sunglasses you wear are such an important accessory. A trendy piece of eyewear can really pull an entire look together and increase your confidence to a whole new level.

Here at Sun Optics, we have gorgeous modern and classic frames from brands such as Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Stella McCartney, Cartier and many more.

Below are 8 of the best eyewear options to transform your look this fall.

  • 1. Study Chic
  • It’s back-to-school season and some 70’s inspired tortoiseshell glasses are just the pair you need. Fall is all about earth tones and these wooden-effect frames capture the magic of the season. Typically styled with warm toned clothing, this look is not going anywhere.  




  • 2. Oversized

    Oversized sunglasses in all shapes and styles have been a staple of fashion for years. Their large frames have a way of making any outfit look even more outstanding while adding a bit of mystery. This is the perfect pair for any jet-setter.





  • 3. Ultra-Round
  • One trend that has picked back up in the past few years is ultra-round glasses, or more popularly known as, “Lennon glasses.” This frame style is easily dressed up with a nice tweed jacket or dressed down with a cozy oversized coat or sweater.





  • 4. Cat-Eye
  • This Breakfast at Tiffany’s inspired frame is flirtatious while also being elegant. They say, “I know who I am, and I know what I want.” The cat-eye shape is flattering to the face and naturally shows more of it. The flared out corner open up the brow-line making your gorgeous eyes appear bigger. This is a perfectly fierce trend for the fall season.





  • 5. Orange Colored Lenses
  • Naturally, one of the most popular colors for fall is going to be orange. It’s the color of comfort and warmth and has quickly become one of the most wearable hues. If you’re nervous about trying colored lenses, orange shades are the perfect introduction. They add just the right flair of color without being too eccentric.




  • 6. Aviators
  • Aviators were made popular by the likes of Tom Cruise in Top Gun and Johnny Depp with his iconic yellow lenses in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Regardless of what inspires you to take on this style, they are flattering on every face. They are casual and luxurious all in one and absolutely perfect for 2018.




  • 7. Non-traditional Shapes
  • Fall ‘18 and Winter 2019 are all about non-traditional shapes. This is the season to step outside your comfort zone and try something new. Trying different eyewear shapes shows confidence and fearlessness - which is great to have especially for this new school year.





  • 8. Minimalism
  • Minimalist is a classic style that never fades and is ideal for the person who thinks less is more. 2018 is the time for material combos with metal and plastic being the most popular for this clean look.
