New Sunglasses 2012

By Gunner Glam

Starting 2012, fashion sunglasses will become a popular trend. If previous large sunglasses became a fan favorite of fashion, it seems the trend in 2012 is a bit different.

As reported by Teen Vogue, News Maker and, Studio Brow would like to share some glasses that became world fashion trends in 2012.

Cat Eye sunglasses have been trendy for a few seasons already and will remain as hot during spring and summer 2012. Eyewear in this shape comes in different colors and décor and can be very playful or more austere. Glasses with frame-shaped cat’s eye had become an idol in the mid-2011 and will again be the trend for summer 2012. These glasses are usually present in full view of color and playful details, such as glasses work Proenza Schouler and Missoni. Specific cat eye colors are purple, red, noir black and white framed.

Gradient lenses are not new to the industry but from time to time designers tend to love them more than other styles. Spring and summer 2012 is just that time. But the most famous designers and brands, some of which are Dolce & Gabbana and Bebe, it seems still like to include this model in sunglasses summer 2012 collection. Colors include yellow, round tortoiseshell, two-tone and ombre.

Colorful Plastic sunglasses always stand out in a crowd. For the coming warm months there will be a high desire to not just blend in. Assortments include lilac, whimsical heart-shaped, orange-and-white, yellow-framed and blue hexagonal.

Sporty sunglasses are always trendy for those people who wear them while doing cycling or running.  But in summer 2012, designers and Cyntia Rowley Rag & Bone makes sports sunglasses can be worn by everyone, not just the athletes. Apart from health reasons, sunglasses for sports always makes a person become more stylish while cycling or jogging. Assortments include sleek and transparent, patterned reflective and rounded reflective.

Quirky shapes are new in vogue but many designers try hard to popularize them. Heart, oval and even diamond-shaped eyewear looks fresh and can be a perfect choice for girls who aren’t afraid to look funny and attract attention.

Round glasses are classic and worn by such big names as Elton John and Lady Gaga. But for Spring and Summer 2012 round sunglasses won’t be that simple. Frames and lens will be in different hues and frames can come with patterns or jewel-encrusting. Round glasses have a timeless nature and could be characterized by top artists.

Love contrasts but feel that color blocking is not the right thing to wear right now? Try contrast sunglasses instead. It’s interesting when frame and lens come in different and often quite contrasting colors.
