What Vintage Sunglasses to Wear This Summer
Many people say sunglasses are a more timeless fashion accessory with most looks never truly going out of style. Vintage sunglasses provide a range of classic books to choose from and enough room to always experiment with bold looks.
But if you want to focus on adding a few more on trend pairs to your vintage sunglass collection, look for vintage frames in these styles:
- Bright and Colorful – Glasses this year should be vibrant with jewel tones and pastels most in, but any color will work as long as it is bright. Some great options for colorful glasses include acetate cat eye glasses from the 1950s. The 70s and 80s also offer colorful cat eye glasses with a less defined shape. Vintage horn rimmed glasses with colored frames are another good look since they since their extra thick frames are great for showing off all that color.
- Vintage 1970s Glasses – The 70s are here again in the fashion world and oversized frames are going to be in this summer. There is no better way to stay on trend than with authentic sunglass frames from the 1970s. Search our women’s cat eyeglasses from the 1970s to get this look.
- Early 2000s Sunglasses – The Y2K years are also back with a sleek and futuristic look. You can get this look with a pair of vintage rimless glasses by adding in your own large square lenses, preferably in a light tone or gradient.
- Angular Shapes – Embrace the bold looks of 2022 with fun shapes that have sharp corners or sweeping curves. Fortunately, vintage eyeglasses have a range of shapes to choose from.
