In this blog, we’ll explore the top eyeglasses trends for 2022. Take a look at this year’s newcomers as well as those trends and styles that are making a comeback.

Retro-Inspired Glasses –

Trends go in cycles and like many trends before it, retro eyewear is making a comeback. Choose stylish cat-eye frames or classic aviator styles to embrace the past but with a contemporary finish. The Cat-eye design often features oval lenses with upswept outer edges that accentuate the shape of the face and bring attention to the eyes.

Check out the Radley Portia frame for a stylish yet subtle cat-eye frame. The beautifully bevelled cat-eye shape comes in a very on-trend nude colour with a pop of pink and a high shine tortoise with a splash of colour.

Minimalist Frames –

Unlike Statement frames, minimalist frames are designed with subtlety in mind. These frames blend in seamlessly with your outfit, regardless of the occasion. Look at subtle black frames, especially for those spending time in a professional or formal setting.

Transparent frames are a great choice for adding some variety to your look whilst maintaining subtlety. This style of frame continues to grow in popularity, particularly in young people and are our must-have eyeglasses for 2022 trends.

If plastic frames aren’t to your taste, try delicate metal frames, with thinner arms and semi-rimless lenses. These glasses combine simple designs with robust and long-lasting materials, to give you a pair of glasses that will stand the test of time and last longer than any trend will. The Lizard Oakley Glasses OX 5113 glasses are a great example of this.

Sporty Glasses –

2022 is a great time to get back outdoors. Whether you’re running, cycling or simply out for a brisk walk, there’s no better time to get out there. Having the motivation is one thing but it’s also important to have the right gear. When we think of sports equipment, we think of trainers, shorts, gloves and we often forget about eyewear.

Square Frames –

Create a fun, back to the 80s look with square glasses and flaunt your cooler side. The conventional silhouette goes with everything you wear. So, all you have to do is throw a pair of square glasses on and get in there.
