Spring Summer 2012 Fashion Trends: Must Have Accessories
The catwalk of the SS/12 season has been alive with trends incorporating pastels, florals, bright primary colours, tribal patterns and sportswear-inspired outfits in time for the Olympics this year. We take a look at eyewear accessories to match the trends.
Sunglasses are so commonly featured on the catwalk, but this year spectacles are making an entrance. Non-prescription glasses are a great way to add to an outfit, and studies have even suggested people who wear glasses are perceived as more intelligent!
The vintage look is so key this season and incorporates warm browns, tortoiseshell hues and golds. Whether you’re adding to an outfit that is already full of vintage inspiration, or simply looking for an accessory to update your current look, a vintage pair of glasses or sunglasses is a great option.
Try these round vintage glasses for inspiration from Emporio Armani. If you’re after a sunglasses style to tie in with this trend, these Chloe Sunglasses are a stunning choice with their tortoiseshell colourway and red upper arm.
Sports season is on! The catwalks have been awash with tracksuit-inspired creations, hooded tops and multi-coloured accessories.
These Hugo Boss glasses will finish the sporty look perfectly with their clear material and thick-armed design.
If you’re looking for a pair of sunglasses, these Adidas T-Sight sunglasses will look ultra cool and are lightweight in material.
The under-the-sea and mermaid trend was slightly unexpected this season, but nonetheless has taken the fashion industry by storm. From turquoise and marine blue accents to shimmery scale-like creations, the catwalk has been alive with inspiration from the ocean.
These Alexander McQueen AMQ4143 glasses have a shell finish; an obvious nod towards the oceanic theme. The shell design and flash of tortoiseshell will look great with many combinations of outfits this season.
For a sunglasses style, the above large, oversized white Prada sunglasses (PR20LS) are a great way to incorporate a striking accessory into the mermaid trend, and will look great with turquoise and blue hues.
Whatever your style, adding a pair of glasses or sunglasses to your wardrobe can bring an interesting accessory and finish your outfit off beautifully. More and more people are getting ahead of the trend by wearing spectacles with plastic lenses purely to add to their outfit – prescription or no prescription needed!
