These days accessories are always an important finishing touch to an outfit in the fashion world with thoughtful planning going into what men and women adorn with their chosen look.
Designer glasses were spotted everywhere on the Autumn/Winter 2012 designer catwalks proving that spectacles are just as stylish and sexy as other must-have accessories this season. Classic designs with a modern edge is what eyewear is all about at the moment. A key style for men is a distinctive round shape and Italian luxury eyewear brand Persol offers a sleek unisex pair in this design in versatile shades. The keyhole bridge adds a vintage element to this contemporary style too.
Women’s eyewear options feature chunkier plastics in more vintage inspired shapes for AW12. Geek chic comes in the form of full rim styles with Ray Ban boasting some great unisex designs. They are easy to wear with this season’s hottest looks and can create a definite style statement. For ultimate power dressing team these chunky spectacles with a sophisticated trench coat or smart knitwear.
For fall, a lot of high end brands have produced more retro style eyeglasses to fit in nicely with the vintage trend which is huge this season. Cat eye frame shapes are a good example of this design as the exaggerated edges produce drama, but still remain wearable. Tom Ford does a fantastic pair of retro style eyeglasses for men in classic black and light tortoise colours – versatile and chic! Rectangle frame shapes are another way of fusing the retro trend into fall looks. This modern style may seem subtle, but can create just as much of a fashion impact as cat eye frames.
