Sunglasses Trends 2021 - Our Predictions for Summer

The hot weather is here and it’s time to break out the latest in summer eyewear fashion! This season is seeing a return of vintage style as designers pay homage to the 60s and 70s. We like to remain on top of the latest trends, which means we offer styles that are ready for the runway, sunbathing on the beach, or a night on the town!

We have one of the largest selections of non-prescription and prescription sunglasses online, with styles from top brands including Ray-Ban and Rio Ray. What’s more, our optical frames can also be customized with sunglasses lenses! From sporty to sophisticated, our collection of eyewear features top brands and the latest looks from Prada, Dolce and Gabbana, Nike, and Harley Davidson.

Here are the top 5 sunglasses trends for 2021 that we predict will capture the imaginations of eyewear lovers and collectors alike this summer:

Classic Wayfarers

Nothing says summer more than a pair of classic Ray-Ban sunglasses. The traditional wayfarer style has been popular with celebrities and presidents including John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, George Clooney, and James Dean.

This face-flattering frame is perfect for anyone who enjoys a well-made frame paired with legacy styling. The Wayfarer remains popular due to its bold lines and iconic black colour. Why not take your look up a notch with polarized lenses available in blue, gold, and silver too? Order these as prescription sunglasses online, or without a prescription, depending on your visual needs.

Round Frames

Made popular by singer John Lennon in the 1970s, round shades continue to enjoy popularity today, whether you opt for thin metal rims, or a bolder acetate frame. We offer several styling options including metal and acetate frames that work for any occasion.

Wearers will love our Rio Ray Del Mar featuring a round metal frame, tinted lenses, and tortoiseshell brow for a look that’s both retro and edgy!

Colour options: Tortoiseshell

Cat Eye Shades

Continuing with the vintage theme, 2021 is also seeing renewed popularity of the cat-eye! This 1950s inspired look was popular among starlets and continues to be a favorite of wearers who want to make a bold fashion statement, giving the illusion of elevated cheek bones and a more elongated face.

The beautiful and elegant Dolce and Gabbana DG3316 embodies everything that the classic cat-eye represents, featuring bold lines and beautiful Havana gold hues. Pair with standard sunglass lenses or add extra star power and glare protection with mirrored polarized lenses. This is definitely the perfect transitional piece to take you from fun on the beach to a garden party!

Clearly Hip

Clear, square frames let everyone know you mean business in an understated way, making it a must for fashion insiders’ top trends for 2021. Ernest Hemingway frames are the perfect example of subtly assertive styling, enabling wearers to express their themselves with ease.

Add sunglasses lenses, or enjoy inside and outside with Transitions lenses, creating an even more versatile look!

Disco Nights

Even those who weren’t around for the 70s know how much fun they were! That’s why we predict great classic styles like the frame Justin will make a comeback this summer.

This aviator style piece from our Eight to Eighty range captures everything that made the 70s as great as they were, from bold colors to statement-making features. The Justin will make you crave bell-bottoms and roller-skates when you customize them as shades – a truly modern twist on a vintage favorite!

The frame: Justin

Colour options: Brown and grey
