7 Eyewear Trends I Predict Will Be Huge in 2022


Ever since 2022 began, we’ve been hitting refresh and embracing the energy the start of a new year brings—especially in fashion. Now is the time to dissect the latest trends of 2022 and mark which are for you versus which you can do without. Today’s trend focus is eyewear. Eyewear is perhaps the most personal accessory, as it is not always one-size-fits-all, and by now, you’ve probably found which styles suit your face shape. If so, then 2022 eyewear trends were made for you. This season, designers gave all of the beloved, timeless eyewear silhouettes the update we never knew they needed.

Historically, fashion reflects the state of society, and this year proves to be no different. Eyewear trends are focusing on the balance of novelty, statement-making frames, and timeless designs. Consumers are leaning into mindful shopping, purchasing styles that are easy, versatile, and have subtle style details. Think a classic cat-eye shape but with a modern update like a narrower, more angular shape or the notorious aviator with a reflective or colored tint. The runways still embraced the ode to the ’70s with retro-inspired silhouettes like Miu Miu’s round, bright-colored frames and Bottega Veneta’s angular aviators.

From mood-boosting colors and XXL oversize frames to subtle retro references, we’re revealing the eyewear shapes that will be everywhere this season—and better yet, the ones you can shop now.

Retro Round

The nostalgia feeling of retro frames is not going anywhere this season. Update your round frames with novelty design elements like crystal embellishments or bright-colored lenses.
