Tip: Top trends include an outdoor palette — browns, reds, grays, blues, greens and more

  • Details: wood finishes, color blocking, distressed accents, animal and floral prints, and patterns.
  • Lenses: Tinted lenses in “earthy hues.”



  • Shapes: You name it…everything from cat-eyes, geometrics, squares, and rounds to hearts, sporty shields, and “wildly new” aviators.
  • Colors: Everything super bright or neon — including hot pinks, vibrant yellows, scarlet reds, intense teals, mixed with “the occasional grounding neutrals and pastels.”
  • Details: Brow accents, cut-outs/layered effects, both translucent and matte finishes, even hounds-tooth patterns and polka dots.
