Eyewear presents an exciting way to change your style in the New Year without having to completely overhaul your entire wardrobe. Whether you are looking for a twist on the classics or are looking to make a statement, 2013’s frames are key pieces to add to your style mix.
Cat Eye Style
The cat eye has been reinterpreted for a new generation of glasses wearers for 2013 with streamlined shapes and patterns. Mary J Blige and Katy Perry were early adopters of the trend, and the newest collections offer stylish and flattering options, including these Grammar Collection Derek Cardigan 7019 cat eye frames in Black.
Glasses provide a great opportunity to mix in dramatic patterns to your look without having to drastically alter your wardrobe. Joseph Marc 4083 Havana frames feature a blond tortoiseshell Havana pattern. The round shape continues to be a key trend in 2013, adding a confident and sophisticated edge.
If you prefer a subtle look face on, but still want to stay on trend this year, Michael Kors offers eyewear with colourful arms that provide unique detailing that adds dimension. These Michael Kors 697 200 Dark Brown frames feature a classic rectangular shape with a twist of multi-colored marbled detailing on the temple.
Statement frames are evolving in the New Year with shapes that bridge the gap between rectangular and square and perfectly frame the face. Zooey Deschanel, Justin Timberlake and Cate Blanchett have all shown how statement eyewear is an ideal punctuation to personal style. The 7 for All Mankind 717 frames is a continuation of the brand’s cool aesthetic and innovative design.
Glasses with keyhole cut bridges are a great way to sport stylish detailing in 2013. Favoured by modern style icons such as Ryan Gosling, Alexa Chung and Johnny Depp, keyhole details nod to the past while current design, such as these Derek Cardigan 7023 frames in Olive, maintain a modern look.
