A blast from the past, the aviators top the charts as the most popular eyewear trend this year. They are also referred to as pilots’ glasses because they were originally designed to protect pilot’s eyes from the glare in 1936. Oversized aviators with a metal wire frame are quickly becoming number one this year. Since they are unisex, they are a smash among men as well as the ladies.
Oversized round glasses are also a blast from the past. Their popularity first started in the 1980s and made a comeback in 2015 by fans of the Harry Potter films.

Cat eyes, made popular in the 1950s, are back with a vengeance. The raised corners of the frames resemble “cat eyes” and give an appearance of grace and sophistication. The introduction of the elongated version kept the cat eyes popular well into the 1960s. Today, the cat eye frames are layered giving these vintage frames a new, updated, and sporty look.
The bold browline look is trending and is a real hit especially if the frame is metallic. The browline glasses were a big trend in the 1950s and early 1960s.
