Eyetique Publishes Slide Show on Eyewear Trends of 2013

January 16, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
January 16, 2014 - Eyetique, a Pittsburgh eyeglasses and sunglasses retailer, has released a slide show detailing the major eyewear trends of 2013. While in recent years, rimless styles have dominated eyewear, the popular frames of 2013 favored statement eyewear. Instead of making glasses near-invisible, designer eyeglass frames were embraced as a bold accessory to draw attention to the eyes and complement other features of the face. The slide show aims to give shoppers some new ideas about current fashion eyewear trends and inspire them to explore new frame options when looking for their next pair of unique glasses frames.

The prominent frame styles featured include:

  • Cat Eye
  • Dramatic Patterns
  • Colorful or Non-matching Temples
  • Statement Frames
  • Keyhole Details

  • While some styles, particularly the Cat Eye and Keyhole designs, are better suited to some facial types more than others, bold patterns and non-matching temples have been embraced across the spectrum of eyeglass wearers. Dark, thick-rimmed Statement frames are even fashionable among individuals who don't need prescription glasses.

    With the increasing variety in designer eyeglass frames, individuals are more able than ever to match their eyewear with not just their outfit, but to their personality. This variety is also encouraging more people to view unique glasses frames as a stylish accessory instead of a necessary tool to correct vision. As seen throughout the apparel industry, fashion with function is in and growing stronger. In 2014, people can expect to see more retro revivals, classic details like tortoiseshell accents and keyhole bridges, and bright colors on the temples and frontal frames.
