Light blue or teal shades look amazing in tortoiseshell combinations. Teal is particularly great for brown eyes, as it really makes them stand out. Oliver Goldsmith’s FUZ (pictured below) is perfect for those looking to try a bolder look.

If you’re looking for a subtle look, you can try our Lunor frames, inspired by the classic English style. These sleek unisex frames feature a classic keyhole bridge and are ideal for day-to-day wear, as they are very light.




A variation of the distinctive tortoiseshell trend, marbled eyeglass frames tap into the uniqueness of mixed-color acetate frames, with bold patterns and color combinations. Light and dark colors combine to achieve a unique pattern, perfect for both men and women.

Half-frame marbled shades are a bit more sophisticated and will add a delicate finishing touch to your outfits. Don’t shy away from half-marbled frames and bold lipstick colors either—a pair such as the Face A Face frames below will tick two hot trends at the same time! The red glasses trend with its variations, be it pink or purple, is mostly destined for the hip and bold—a perfect choice for a fashionista.

As resonant as always, cat eye glasses are still in style and ladies’ best friend in the academic and business environment. This shape is a mainstay in sunglass design because it elongates the face beautifully, and perfectly balances elegance and whimsy.

Cat eye frames are sexy yet serious, and contour the image of a decisive woman who knows what she wants. The oversized take on these glasses also has a retro flare that is always stylish.

The Beatles are forever, and so are the rounded sunglasses popularized by John Lennon. Round frames are beautiful and simple, and are a staple for free spirits and creative people.

An oversized frame, like the one pictured above, offers the best protection from the sun and is perfect for you if you want to be bold. Smaller frames, such as the ones featured below, are a bit more elegant with a distinctive edge.
