This season sees the comeback of several popular trends. Geometrical, slim and oversized, cat-eye, and distinctive details are all the rave this upcoming season for both men and women. Pick them with transparent frames for a more subtle look or with bold colored rims or embellishments for a trend-setter outfit.
As resonant as always, cat-eye glasses are still in style and ladies’ best friend in the academic and business environment.
Geometric Cat-Eye glasses are a big trend this year, they accentuate your personality and highlight the shape of your face. If you have a square-shaped face, a geometric cat-eye frame will add angles to your face, which can be very flattering. If your face is round, can create angles to define it.
Cat-eye frames are sexy yet serious and contour the image of a decisive woman who knows what she wants. Choose the modern silhouette Treble for your playful side, or go with the cute Cat’s Meow vintage cat-eye glasses for a total look change.
The retro cat-eye black frame is a great choice for women working in the business environment as they give you a smart and mysterious look that is bound to emphasize your professionalism.
Clear frame glasses are one of the most popular eyewear trends of the year. Clear has captured the imagination of fashion designers everywhere and is being transposed in an array of clothing and accessory designs, and most importantly into prescription glasses.
Here are some of the best clear, trendy frames from Vint & York:
The beautiful Mykonos frame is unisex so if you are looking for some oversized glasses in clear, this is the best choice. People love their elegant design and beautiful look. If you’re looking for the coolest eyeglasses for both men and women, you have found them.
White and clear plastic captured the attention of designers who use them in different fashion staples — beaded bags, white shoes, transparent trench coats. Eyewear follows this direction, white and transparent frames being one of the top trends of this upcoming season for both men and women.
Whether you’re looking to achieve a subtle look or want to dress to impress, white or transparent eyeglasses will ace the job. To keep the focus on your glasses, make sure you pick outfits or makeup in lighter shades.
One of the biggest trends Vint & York focuses on in 2021 is chunky eyewear chains with a gentle retro inspiration. This chic, super cool trend is not only fashionable, but is totally practical and functional. Keep your specs safe and handy with gorgeous, chunky chains that will totally revamp your look.
If you want to make a statement opt for a sculptural or geometric chunky metal style chain, that will ensure your new eyewear stays put for easy access to your frames!
The shape of the year is, well, any shape that brings a splash of geometry to the table. From the clear cut hexagon Ellis eyeglasses to the softer, Hudson shape that is more tamed around the corners. These frames are made to fit basically any face, since they mix together elements that pertain both to round glasses, and to the squared ones.
But no matter the exact shape, the element that is an absolute must with these geometric styles is the thick rimmed frames, preferably in bold and bright colours. Or even a mix of colours if you’re one who likes to stand out and let the glasses speak for themselves.
This millennial, dusted pink nude is forecasted to be the next neutral hue to reign supreme throughout 2021.
Among the rainbow of colors that you’ll see this year, this warm color will be like a breath of fresh air. Add this distinctive frame and to make sure you’re not overlooked whenever you step in the room.
Ritzy is one of the most versatile and popular eyeglasses frames in our collection, for both men and women. The two-toned frames combining pastel pink and the famous tortoiseshell demands for statement getups.
A toned-down hue is easier to match with day-to-day outfits, so this pastel pink frame is a no-frills alternative. The tortoiseshell arms give a wonderful contrast and look elegant in combination with the translucent millennial pink shade.
These popular eyeglasses will add a carefree vibe to an outfit or a bit of joie de vivre to greys and other neutrals. However, to keep the focus on them, make sure to pick outfits in light colors as to not the steal their spotlight.
Round frames very popular in 2021 as well and, more than that, they are suited for square and rectangular shaped faces.
They can be mixed and matched with a variety of outfits, starting from the business smart and going to hipster sweaters and hats.
An oversized round frame is perfect for you if you want to be bold. Smaller frames are a bit more elegant, but you can always pick funky colors to be sure your entrance is remembered.
These beauties are bound to draw attention to your face – which is exactly what you need when you are trying to get people to listen to you. We suggest going with a two-tone frame colorway – the soft gradient creates a mysterious vintage effect.
Second only to clear frames, tortoiseshell glasses in unique patterns are your best option if you want to stay in tune with the current eyewear trends. Forget about the boring brown tortoiseshell – there are so many color palettes of this trendy pattern that you will be sure to find the perfect one for your skin tone and hair!
Here are some trending tortoiseshell frames from Vint & York:
Square lenses are timeless. This year’s silhouette borrows the retro-vintage vibe with oversized proportions and thick frames. With true square or gently rounded shapes, they’ll make you look fashionable without putting too much effort into it.
