It’s not summer without a trendy pair of sunglasses. Aviators were all the rage last year. And, no disrespect to the classic trend, but we’re ready for something new! Here are the sunglasses trends that everyone will be wearing this summer:

Summer 2018 Sunglasses Trends

1. Thick Acetate Frames

Thick acetate frames are going to be everywhere this summer. The trendy material enhances traditional sunglass silhouettes and allows the wearer to experiment with color and texture. Expect to see a lot of bold colors and mirrored lenses!

2. Colored Lenses

Colored lenses were a big trend last summer and will continue to be this year, too! This contemporary-meets-retro trend is a fun way to incorporate color into your wardrobe and add a little edge to your style. Expect to see a lot of warm tones like orange, hot pink, and yellow!

3. Heart-Shaped Sunglasses

This trend may seem childish at first, but it’s actually super stylish and chic. Celebs like Miley Cyrus have been spotted wearing designer heart-shaped sunglasses and the trend is catching on. This quirky trend is a great way to add a little personality and character to your look.

4. Tiny Sunglasses

Yes… tiny sunglasses are happening and they’re even more trendy for the summer! These modern, cool-girl glasses make for the perfect accessory. Stars like Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, and Rihanna are fans of this trend and we love it because of how edgy they are!
