Pssst: did you guys know that I am pretty much blind as a bat? I’ve rocked my glasses on the blog a few times before, but I mostly wear contacts throughout the week. However, my contacts have become super expensive over the years due to my astigmatism, and I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of frames to rock to hopefully wear my glasses more and cut down on how much I wear my contacts (and maybe save some dollar bills, friends!)
I’ve teamed up with Visionworks to show off the 4 best eyewear trends of 2017 — and never fret, for those of you who magically have perfect vision, I stuck in a pair of sunglasses in this post as well for you! Side note, I’m jealous of you. Ugh.
Go for the Gold Details
You know me, I love all gold everything! I was so stoked to see that gold accents were in style this season. These Kate Spade frames are bold, funky, and something that I would totally rock for a special occasion, while this pair of Salsa frames had subtle gold accents on the sides that made them a little more toned down for everyday wear. To tell you a secret: the Salsa frames were my absolute favorite, and I definitely see myself wearing them on a regular basis! They had the perfect amount of bling to make me happy.
Dare to go Green
I know. I know. I never really thought that green frames would work for me, but I’m actually obsessed with them! It’s such a fun, unexpected color that really looks super chic at the end of the day. Green is the Pantone color of 2017 so it really came as no surprise that this color would be everywhere this season. These Bebe frames were super adorable, and I got so many compliments on them when I wore them out around town!
Be Bold with Angular Suns
Alright, alright: this trend is for you lucky ducks with 20/20 vision! For sunglasses this spring, go for a pair that’s super angular in shape to give your look a bit more edge! From sharp square edges to boxy-cat eyes, there’s a perfect pair of angular sunglasses out there for you to try this season. I absolutely adore this pair of Guess sunglasses, and the reflective lens definitely doesn’t hurt either!
