6 Bold Sunglasses Trends for Spring 2021

Posted on May 12th, 2021

Hot off the runway and just in time for spring are the latest sunglasses trends. We kept an eye on the catwalks and flipped through all the latest fashion magazines, so you don’t have to.

Make sure your accessory collection is primed and ready for the sunny days ahead, while also protecting your eyes. Below is a list of our favourite seasonal styles and eyewear trends that are easy to pull off and look fantastic on just about anyone.

All gold everything: Gold frames

Gold is in as a statement piece in trendy sunglasses this season. Gold frames can be oversized, barely there, or play on geometric looks. They can help jazz up a comfortable outfit, or put the finishing touches on a more elegant ensemble.

Dolce & Gabbana - 0DG2243


Michael Kors - 0MK1090

Ray-Ban - 0RB3560

Structured and geometric: Square or rectangle

Who doesn’t need some structure in their life right now? The big fashion houses seem to agree, as many of the frames seen on the runway featured straight lines and sharp angles. These ultra-structured, rectangular and square frames are edgy and often minimal but fit in seamlessly with almost any outfit.  

Cole Haan - CH6005

Tiffany - 0TF4047B

Ray-Ban 0RB1973

Rounding off favourites: Mod retro looks

Just as popular as square designs are round frames, and we’re loving the revival of the mod retro look. We’ve seen everything from thick coloured frames to thin gold frames, so the style really is up to you. Round is perfect blend of modern and chic, so whether you like to your frames oversized or prefer to keep them small, these will complete your look.  

Burberry - 0BE3094

Ray-Ban - 0RB3447

Calvin Klein - CK4143S

Go big or go small: Cat eyes

Cat-eye frames have been a staple piece in fashion for decades. This retro style is back and bigger than before and truly completes the classic vintage aesthetic. Whether big or small, this look isn’t going anywhere, and we’re loving the ‘70s flair in these frames:

Prada - 0PR01VS

Oakley - 0OO9434

Dolce & Gabbana - 0DG4381

Always classy: Aviators

As always, aviators are ruling sidewalks and catwalks alike. It’s safe to say they’re always in. Try mixing it up by going for an aviator shape in a clear frame or adding some gold sparkle to really round off a high fashion look.

Michael Kors - 0MK1045

Ray-Ban - 0RB3549

Oakley - 0OO4079

Stand out from the crowd: Oversized

A huge trend we’re seeing in 2021 is oversized everything—and this includes sunglasses. If you have a style or shape you love and you didn’t see it on this list, make it supersized and you’re good to go! Here are our favourites from the oversized sunglasses trend in our collection:

Burberry - 0BE4259

Nike - Outrider - 0EV1084

Prada - 0PR16RS
