Summer 2016 Eyewear Trends

Summer is just around the corner, and with it comes new trends in fashion.

At Eclectic Eye, we’re always keeping an eye out for the latest style statements, so we wanted to share our predictions for this summer’s eyewear trends with you! My fellow Eyewear Architect, Rebecca Allen, put this list together and I wanted to share these with y’all!


A modern take on the popular style of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, retro wire-rimed frames make geek look chic.

Moscot is an example wire-rim style you can find at Eclectic Eye:

Tinted Lenses

Sea glass, yellow, peach, rose. There isn’t a color in the rainbow that’s off limits! This style can be seen anywhere from the runways of Paris to your favorite A-lister’s Instagram feed. See KREWE du optic!

At Eclectic Eye, we offer a variety of tinted lenses that we can customize to fit into your favorite frames.

Mirror Coatings

Mirror, mirror on the wall, which are the coolest sunglasses of them all? We love these colorful and highly reflective mirror-coated sunnies that are ruling the land. If you want to take colored frames a step further, this trend is definitely for you.

Love the look? Check out these mirror-coated styles that we carry:  

Large Geometric Frames

Channel your inner Iris Apfel. Large and colorful asymmetrical frames were seen all over the runways this year and will be huge come summertime. You know what they say, bigger is better.
