2017 Trends for Female Eyewear


With the new year upon us it is definitely the time to look to the future with fresh eyes. Our collection of quality eyewear will protect your eyes all year round. We stock a wide collection of leading independent brands ensuring that your eyes are not only cared for but that you stay on trend in 2017. In the meantime, here is some inspiration of what to look out for this year:

Classically Cat-eyed

Timeless and elegant. Classic and contemporary. For both optical eyewear and for sunglasses. Once again the quintessential feline shape is one of the top trends for female eyewear this year. InStyle highlight that this year it's the modern details that will give you the edge. Dita's Heartbreaker sunglasses are an excellent example of how this can be done. Yet, this frame is not only for when the sun is shining. As an independent London-based opticians we understand that eye care means perfectly prescribed and fabulous optical eyewear too, e.g. Dazed Black Swirl (also by Dita), making the cat-eyed frame not only a stylish choice for 2017, but a practical one too.

Return of the Colour Tinted Lens

From the swinging 70's to the more recent appearance in the late 90's, tinted lenses are set to make a comeback this year according to Vogue. Although possibly one of the more controversial styles in eyewear, our luxury prescription glasses will have you looking more cutting edge chic and less Britney Spears circa 2000. Our tinted lenses come in a variety of colours, ranging from Dusky Rose by Cutler and Gross to Oliver Peoples' Aero Gold Polarise in jade green, ensuring there is a shade to suit you.

Level Headed

Fashion week this year proved that frames with a flat top are set to be a winner for sunglasses this Spring/Summer 2017, observes Fashionisers. For those who are feeling bold enough we stock a full flat top, see Thierry Lasry's Bowery. Or, for a slightly more subtle approach to this trend Oliver Goldsmith's Yatton offers a unique geometric shape with the top part of the frame - of course - being level. If this trend takes your fancy and you want to expand this style to your optical specs too Cutler and Gross have produced an exquisite pair which comes in both Cola and Grad Sherry.

We hope these trends have left you feeling inspired. For more of our collection of fine eyewear please visit http://adamsimmonds.co.uk/or feel free to pop in store.
