New York Fashion Week is one of the best places to look for eyewear inspiration. In February 2023, we saw multiple collections featuring modern eyewear. Attendees were also wearing trendy eyewear pieces—from tortoise shell glasses to futuristic frames. If you want to get the trending eyewear looks from NYFW, Vint & York has a variety of collections and frames to elevate your style.
1. Oversized Square Frames
Oversized square frames were everywhere at NYFW. This style is versatile, bold, and sure to attract attention. When assembling your spring outfits, don’t forget to include some of these square-framed sunglasses or prescription lenses.
If you want oversized square sunglasses similar to the ones seen at NYFW, try our Piazza frames. These luxury frames are handmade in Italy and come in four colors: black, tortoise, transparent green, and nude beige. They fit oval, round, heart, and oblong face shapes. The Piazza frames look great dressed up for special events or dressed down for more casual street style. Our Cecile frames are another oversized square style that can be used to achieve the oversized NYFW eyewear look. Their square shape is a bit softer than the Piazza and can bring a bold feminine look to any outfit. Cecile comes in cognac tortoise, jet black, and nude beige.
Get the oversized square eyewear look seen at NYFW with a pair of our fashionable prescription eyeglasses. One of our favorites, Glacier, looks delicate while still being a sturdy frame. Glacier features thin wire arms with defined, oversized square rims. Glacier's color options are tortoise shell, clear, and grey crystal. If you are interested in square eyeglasses with fun frame colors, check out our Bluegrass frames. Bluegrass comes in shades of transparent blue, green, and nude beige.
2. Rectangular Frames
Rectangular frames stole the show at NYFW 2023. Rectangular glasses are similar to our square frames, but they have a narrower silhouette. If you want to add sophistication and retro style to your look, consider adding some traditional or statement rectangular frames to your wardrobe. Our Killa is a great option to incorporate both rectangular frames and cat-eye eyeglasses.
Try out our Chassis sunglasses to add an element of femininity and chic sophistication to any outfit. Try our Chassis frames in black or cognac tortoise if you prefer a sleek look. Choose our fancy purple color option if you want your Chassis frames to make a playful statement. You can also try one of our luxury rectangular frame options, Luce. Luce sunglasses are hand-crafted in Italy and are part of our Dolce Vita collection. Choose from blue, carmine, green, or honey Luce frames and put a retro spin on your spring outfits.
If you are after rectangular eyeglasses that make a statement, our Sfizio frames may be just what you are looking for. Sfizio's rims are thick with sharp angles and work well with oval and round face shapes. These stunning frames come in black, champagne, dark tortoise, and transparent grey. Our rectangular Eugene eyeglasses have a more sophisticated and subtle look. These lightweight frames have thin wire rims and come in blue or black.
3. Cat-eye Frames
Cat-eye frames are well-loved by NYFW designers and attendees for their versatility. Cat-eye glasses can add elegance and class to any outfit. With a pair of these glasses, you can mimic some of the bold looks seen on the streets of New York.

As with many of our other luxury frames, they are handmade in Italy and are made with high-quality materials. You can find Plaza in ivory pearl, jet black, or tortoise.

If you want prescription cat-eye glasses that will attract attention, then try our Belair frames. Our Belair frames are oversized and come in three iconic color and pattern options, including black and teal two tone, leopard print with black temple arms, and plum royale with multi-colored tortoise temple arms.
