3 Hot Sunglass Trends From The Spring 2017 Runways

As the sun emerges from behind those gloomy clouds, fashion lovers can expect to slip on their favourite sunglasses. While we have certainly entertained a long winter and early spring filled with snowfall and dark skies, there just might be a change in the weather ahead. Whether your springtime adventures bring you to the park or the busy urban streets of downtown, stylish shades can immediately complete your look. This season, draw your inspiration from the latest runways, and keep the following key sunglass trends in mind.

Plastic Fantastic

With retro inspired accessories enjoying a moment in the sun, this trend is unsurprising. Spotted on the catwalks at Balenciaga, pale blue lenses and oversized funky frames were showcased in plastic. For Spring 2017, plastic sunglasses appear to be trendy, rather than tacky. Whether you’re slipping into a 1990s style biker jacket or stepping out in stripes, think plastic for your eyewear needs.

Embellished and Elaborate

Last season, glittery and bauble-adorned sunnies were all the rage, and this popular look continues for Spring 2017 as well. At Dolce Gabbana, models embraced the runway with large embellished shades which were boldly studded with all manner of ornaments. From flowery motifs to glitter and beadwork, channel your inner drama queen with bedecked sunglasses which are worthy of a Hollywood damsel.


From cat eyes to the butterfly shape, winged frames are chic and cool for the season of spring romance. If you want to conceal those telltale signs of exhaustion after a night on the town, consider the aesthetic spotted at Roberto Cavalli. Winged sunglasses may hide a great deal of your gorgeous face, but they will certainly come in handy when the afternoon sunlight turns bright. From studs to pastel-toned lenses, winged frames have received a contemporary makeover for the Spring 2017 season.
