Hopeman advocates embracing one or more of the key trends in eyewear for Fall 2016:

For the Guys:

Shades of BlueGuys take a few tips from the ladies and step out of their comfort zone when it comes to color. This season we see shades of blue on these dapper dandies. Matte and textured finishes give a modern touch, while a translucent blue frame has a more subdued feel. These cool toned frames are a must in every gentleman’s eye wardrobe.

For the Ladies:

Masculine Influence Move over cat-eye, there is a new bold look in town. Masculine details on women’s frames add a daring look this season. Thick bold frames are key in this juxtaposition of hard and soft details. Need a little more subtlety; opt for a thin oversized plastic frame to keep in trend.

For All:

Keyhole bridgeWith the modern vintage trend still in full force, bridge details are getting a throw-back detail. Keyholes can be seen in both men and women frames this season. Paired with a round or square silhouette, this trend is sure to become a staple in your eyewear wardrobe.

TranslucentTransparency becomes a hot trend for this season. Metal details and patterned temples give a fun touch, while lightly tinted colored frames are the true star of this must have trend.

For Suns:

Vivid Suns– It is no surprise to see one of summer 2016 trends, Vibrant Hues, crossover into the fall. Colorful suns can be seen throughout fall for a much needed pop of color. In a time of neutral color palettes in outerwear, opt for a playful sun in a vibrant tone to stand out in a crowd of neutrals.
