With a new year on the horizon, it’s time for new trends in the fashion world, including eyewear. When you’re looking for a new pair of eyeglass frames, you’ll see a selection of current eyewear trends, but where do those styles come from? The world of fashion makes predictions about what will be hot each year, and eyewear designers put out styles they believe people will want to wear.

Celebrities often lead the way when it comes to new trends, influencing others by wearing certain styles. You probably take ideas from the people around you, too. Maybe a friend has some spectacular new frames, and it makes you want something similar. We’re going to look at some of the biggest women’s and men’s eyewear trends of 2023 and look forward to what 2024 has in store.

Eyewear trends in 2023

Eyewear trends in 2023

First, let’s reflect on the hot eyewear trends of this year. Clear and translucent frames were a continuing trend from 2022, with warmer shades and ombre color fades proving popular. With maximalist makeup looks, clear frames were ideal for highlighting your eyes and complementing any skin tone.

The harlequin became a staple look, a shorter, slimmer relative of the classic cat eye. Inspired by how the corners of a jester’s mask turn up, it’s a style that looks good on just about everyone, highlighting the brows and drawing the eye to the high points of the face.

Bright and bold was a trend not just for clothing but for eyewear, too. Colorful or stand-out frames were favored by the likes of Keke Palmer, Bella Hadid, and Sebastian Stan, which obviously influenced the rest of the world to join in the trend too.

Geometric frames were quite a style statement in 2023, with wireframes well suited to this style. Once thought of as granny-chic, oversized octagonal frames and the like were given a modern twist.

Now, let’s take a look forward at what new eyewear trends we can expect in 2024.

Eyewear trends for 2024

We think that translucent frames will stay hot in the coming year. This style rocketed to the top of the trends in 2022 and has never left since. Their ability to adapt to all skin tones and facial shapes makes them versatile enough to continue as a trend. Not only this, but translucent frames are so versatile they can come in a range of colors such as pinks, greys, blues or yellows and still complement you so well.

Mirrored, wraparound shades were once reserved for athletes, but that’s no longer the case. As Vogue mentioned, designers such as Burberry, Balenciaga, and Bottega Veneta have all featured sporty frames in their recent runway shows. We predict that this trend will continue growing, and we will see them featured in people’s everyday wear.

Mirrored wraparound shades

Rectangular frames were softened around the edges last year, but we think more angular frames with a geometric feel will be strong in 2024. These specs complement the bone structures of faces, creating a perfectly contoured face. Expect powerful statement frames that inspire confidence.

Rectangular frames

Oval frames never really go out of fashion, but 2024 will bring in oversized versions, a modern twist on classic elegance. This frame style suits most face shapes. So, if you don’t know, get to know!

Sustainable frames have been gaining traction in the past few years, and we think 2024 will be their biggest year yet. Expect to see more eco-conscious materials and low-impact production methods as brands strive to be more environmentally responsible.
