Blue Sky Eye Magazine 2020

by Catherine Skelton

If you wear glasses, you know they are your most visible accessory. A stylish new pair of eyewear can update your entire look. Eyewear trends bring us fresh looks every season. Designers are revisiting past decades for inspiration. Using current technology in materials and finishes, upcoming collections feature nostalgic styles in crisp and modern ways.

Color & Finish: Eyewear designers are embracing color, giving you more choices than ever before. Current color trends show grey is still the top neutral shade for clothing and accessories, with taupe showing up frequently enough to be a strong contender for 2021’s newest neutral.

While we are still seeing plenty of dark rims, frames have begun to lighten up in both color and material. You’ll find more metals and translucent frame choices than you saw just last year. With metals enjoying a resurgence, designers are embracing new textures and color applications. You’ll find lacquered and anodized color applications, ensuring the shades on your eyewear won’t fade. Keep an eye out for textures as well, including matte, pearlized, polished and even hammered finishes.

Frame colors reflect many of the shades in Pantone’s Spring/Summer 2021 palette. Expect to see more navy and paler cerulean blues, marigold accents on rust and copper shades, along with burnt coral and darker mint tones.
