Spring 2020: Sunglasses Trends


Thin glasses have long been chosen by Rihanna, who combines them with fluffy or asymmetrical dresses. The thinnest red frames for the cover of Surface magazine starred singer Solange. Models Gigi and Bella Hadid, as well as the Kardashian sisters, were seen wearing similar glasses. And although the Georgian designer Georgy Keburia specializes in clothes, it was his bright glasses that shot. Futuristic glasses will naturally go with anything that resembles the style of the 90s. If these are sports items, then definitely huge hoodies, sweatpants, and massive sneakers. If you want to wear something in the spirit of a disco or rave of that time, then lurex tops and blouses, leather skirts, massive jackets, and leopard fur coats are suitable. In any of the looks, you can fit trendy boots, sheepskin coats, and oversized jackets.

You can go the other way. For example, combine glasses with minimalistic things: plain turtlenecks and asymmetric trousers. A simple knitted dress and flat shoes are also a great option: thin glasses instead of the usual square ones will certainly refresh the image.


Oversize, which has firmly and permanently entrenched itself among the main fashion trends and does not plan to give up its position, is gradually moving to accessories. Round, rectangular and rimless models – this season, designers are advised to pay attention to glasses that cover half of the face and in no time make even everyday looks spectacular. Wear them with tailored business suits, lantern sleeve blouses, and long A-line skirts, capturing the attention of all passers-by. The most relevant will be white plastic frames in the style of the 1960s, as well as unusual textures and colors: wood and marble.


Aviator glasses, which were invented in the 1920s so that pilots could protect their eyes from direct sunlight, have long become one of the main fashion accessories and an important part of the basic wardrobe. Stylists explain their popularity by the fact that drop-shaped lenses and thin metal frames are suitable for any face shape and style of clothing: aviators will look harmonious with a bomber jacket and sneakers with massive soles, and with an oversized leather jacket, and with a satin slip dress and sandals on a hairpin.

This iconic model, which became a symbol of 1970s style, will once again be at the peak of relevance for the spring-summer 2020 season: designers advise to abandon lenses with a metallic sheen and pay attention to more versatile models of amber, dusty green, and blue that can be worn with formal trouser suits, light sundresses with floral print or leather jumpsuits to add authenticity and retro aesthetics to the image.


The 1990s remain one of the most beloved eras of many designers, nostalgia for which has been a source of inspiration for new collections for several seasons. Along with leather jackets, chunky sneakers, and white loose T-shirts, narrow elongated sunglasses returned to the catwalks (and into our hearts), the main Instagram ambassador of which can be called supermodel Bella Hadid. In the spring-summer, 2020 season, classic models with colored lenses in metal frames, and bizarrely shaped glasses with rainbow glasses in the style of cyclists will be relevant, which will perfectly fit into a sport-chic look and are suitable for everyone who is not afraid to experiment with fashion.


In the summer of 2020, along with the iconic mirrored aviators that have long been classics and plastic frames in the style of the 60s of the last century, sunglasses with colored lenses will be in fashion – both sporty and glamorous. Pay attention not only to pink, which, of course, makes the world much more welcoming and friendlier but also to other shades: blue – Kylie Jenner simply adores it, light green, yellow, and orange. Glasses can be completely monochromatic or gradient, and frames – narrow and wide, round and rectangular, metal, and plastic – the main thing is not the form, but the content.
