After going through the collections of all our favorite designers and fashion brands, I have found that printed frames and polarized glasses are the trendiest amongst the latest men’s sunglasses in 2016, along with the ever-popular aviators and wayfarers.

Latest Sunglasses for Men Trend #1: Round

Back in the day, round sunglasses weren’t really popular amongst men, but designers like Armani, Roberto Cavalli and many more have introduced really trendy and gorgeous round sunglasses for men this year. The bold round wood frames of Giorgio Armani leave me spellbound and they’re of course, my favorites in 2016.

Latest Sunglasses for Men Trend #2: Printed Frames

For a couple of seasons now, we’ve been seeing so many printed accessories like watches, shoes, and now the print is in sunglasses. We’re seeing the print in all different parts of the sunglasses- the frame itself, the bridge and the temple of the sunglasses. However, my favorite print look is when it is on the frames. I just love the printed grey and yellow combo by Tommy Hilfiger.

Latest Trend in Men’s Shades #3: Oval

In 2016, the oval sunglasses have their own adaptations, like the joined lenses of Versace to the cat-eye oval of Vogue. Also, I like the classic oval shades by Prada.

Latest Sunglasses for Men Trend #4: Clubmaster

Out of all the trends of sunglasses, this is the one I choose when I am confused on which sunglasses to put on. Because of their unique shapes, clubmasters are great for day-parties and special occasions. The blue to white ombré sunglasses by Ray-Ban are too sexy!

Men’s Sunglasses #5: Polarized

The best sunglasses for long drives in the daytime are the polarized ones as they reflect the glare and give better visitibility. The ombre polarized shades of Maui Jim are on the top of this list for me.

Designer Sunglasses for Men Trend #6: Aviator

Avaitors are one of the coolest and most sophisticated ways of protecting your eyes from harsh sun. These classics have their own fashion quotient and attitude. This year, we’re seeing the aviators in a variety of materials and trendy shapes. I am in love with the Tom Ford aviators.

Latest Trend in Men’s Shades #7: Wayfarer

The wayfarers have always been super popular and have found their way into the closets of those who love to indulge in eyewear. Wear them if you want to have a unique personal style, and want to leave a lasting impression. My vote in this list would go for the green military look of Armani.

So those were our top picks of the sunglasses you want to be seen in this year. Which pair is your favorite? I know it’s difficult to decide a favorite one with all these outstanding ones. But do let me know your choice below.
