Eyewear can be the doorway into your soul. Quite literally. Many say that when you look deeply enough into someone’s eyes, you can see right into their soul. And of course, if you wear glasses then these can be not only the doorway to your soul but can equally showcase your mood or personality.
And who says you have to settle for a single pair? If you want a different pair of glasses for different purposes or different moods, then these current eyewear trends we’ve compiled are what you need for your inspiration.
1. Dark Brown Rounded Glasses
Currently, the late 80s and and early 90s trends of thin framed glasses have made a glorious return into eyewear fashion trends. These are perfect for wearing to the library or for reading. They are nice and light as compared to those thick frames that have been so popular over the last several years.
2. Golden Aviator Glasses
Who said aviators are restricted to those that work for the police, navy or air force? These golden aviators are perfect and again light and thin enough to feel comfortable to wear as an all-day eyewear. Wear these and you’ll be able to pull off some stellar 1970s looks that are so popular these days.
3. Oversized Clear Frames
Oversized glasses are the absolute fad in eyewear trends this year, and these oversized clear frames are perfect for those who love the relaxed look. They remind us of the 80s quite clearly, and are available in the cutest colours to match your styles. We’re love transparent, light pink and other pastels in these cute frames!
4. Retro Oversized Aviators
If you’re really opting for the vintage look that will remind others of the 70s, then these retro oversized aviators are perfect to complete your style. They are boxy and beautiful. They may be slightly heavy on the face, but are great for those who don’t need to wear their eyewear all the time.

These frames are comfortable and wearable in any setting. These metal rim round frames have been a staple in eyewear trends over the last few years, and we’re still adoring the charm of them. With the right eye makeup and pink lipstick, these frames are wearable and stylish for everyday use.
6. Golden Circular Frames
Another cute pair you can wear everyday and channel the inner 1990s librarian in you. These are so sweet and wearable. Thin, comfortable and can go easily with just about any outfit. These frames remind us of Andrea Zuckerman from the 1990s TV series Beverly Hills 90210, and if you’re a fan of the look, these are perfect for you!
7. Classic Black Frames
A classic staple for almost ever, this eyewear trend peaked in their popularity during the 1950s. Since then they’ve been a staple in all optometrists and eyewear shops, and honestly, you can never go wrong with them. They are trendy, fashionable and classic and will never go out of style.
