Eye care and “fashion rules” can go together

PLX Academy · News · 25 April 2022

Nowadays, eyewear is more than just an accessory – it is an element of your personal style that can change your appearance and make you look trendy. Wearing the right sunglasses is also a great defense against ultraviolet rays that can cause short and long-term eye damage.   

Experts are unanimous that the most important thing to look for when buying sunglasses to protect your eyes is a sticker or tag indicating that they block 100 percent of UV rays.  When you choose sunglasses, you can use the American Academy for Ophthalmology guidelines like “Big is better” and “Color does not matter.” The first thing is that the more coverage from sunglasses, the less sun damage is inflicted on the eyes.  Second is that sunglasses that come with amber, green or gray lens, do not block more sun but can increase contrast, which may be useful for athletes who play sports such as baseball or golf.  

Having this in mind, choosing the right pair of sunglasses for the shape of your face and personal style while also following the current eyewear trends can be an arduous process for every woman. However, with the help of our tips and suggestions for the coolest shades at the moment, you are going to have fun styling your looks with the right pair.

1. Colorful lenses

At any time of the year, and especially in spring, we reach for the light and enjoy bright colors. In the spring of 2022, a wave of color euphoria will overwhelm us. This season, lenses can be any color you like, from delicate blues and sunny yellows to bright reds and greens. As for the frame, its color may be identical to the lenses. But the most daring will definitely be to choose models with contrasting shades. By the way, with such glasses it is cool to create monochrome images, choosing a model to match the clothes. So this spring there will not be the slightest excuse for not wearing tinted lenses.

2. The cat-eye silhouette

The cat-eye frame is arguably one of the most sophisticated silhouettes for glasses. In the new season, thanks to designer creativity, flirty cat-eyes have turned into quite geometric triangles. This spring lookout for more dramatic, pointed corners and a wider take on traditional cat-eye silhouette. For those who do not like sharp corners, designers offer retro inspired glasses with smooth lines.

3. Oversized square

The trend of the new season is large square glasses with dark opaque lenses that hide almost half of the face. The huge size adds style to any look, the dark lenses add incredible mystery, and the square shape goes well with a variety of clothing styles – neomodern, classic, sports or casual.

4. Total black

Undoubtedly black frames with black lenses have a timeless quality that will always come back in style. This season, total black sunglasses have become the protagonists of the catwalks. The most successful forms for such a model are square, trapezoid, and futuristic shield sunglasses. Completely black glasses are a very functional and profitable accessory that is a win-win option for any season.

5. Unusual shapes

Creative people always see reality a little differently. For original characters who want to look avant-garde, extravagant, and different, this season’s trend will be sunglasses of the most unusual geometric shapes. For those who are bored with mainstream eyewear, impressive and innovative sunglasses are the best options for spring 2022.
