Latest Sunglasses for Women in 2016

Latest Sunglasses Trend #1: The New Cat-Eye


This is the hottest trend in sunglasses for 2016, and we’ve been seeing this a lot on the runways! The classic cat-eye has been given a dash of modification which is a combo of two varieties of sunglasses: oval and cat eye or round and cat eye. The range varies from the hot printed red of Dolce & Gabbana to the embellished black of Jimmy Choo. Here are our favorites!

Latest Sunglasses Trend #2: Ombre


If you’ve already decided what frame and shape suits you, then it all comes down to the lens when making that shopping decision! Ombre (or gradient) lenses have been the latest trend on the runway. Starting from darker to lighter shade these sunglasses make quite a statement!
Pro Tip: Try to select a pair in which your eyes get almost hidden on wearing (dark on top) and your under-eye is visible.

Latest Sunglasses Trend #3: Oval

This is the classic shape of the sunglasses that never goes out of style! It has its own modifications – wear the oval that’s slightly cat-eye shaped, or oval oversized, or oval with relatively sharper corners, but nevertheless the oval look is all time hit. Oval is elegant, timeless and sophisticated all at the same time! My favorite pair here is the sleek Roberto Cavalli one.

Latest Sunglasses Trend #4: Oversized


70s oversized sunglasses were all the rage in the retro era, and have never completely gone off the radar. But this season, it’s all about the 70s inspiration – with the flared pants, ombre and oversized sunglasses. Brownie points for adding a rectangular frame to your mocha-shaded ombre oversized sunglasses. And pairing them with a printed button-up shirt! So 70s!!

Latest Sunglasses Trend #5: Statement

The statement sunglasses for women include all the printed frames, embellished and studded sunglasses and whacky patterns that make you stand out in the crowd! My favorite pair is the printed one of Dolce & Gabbana. It’s mesmerizing!
