Our guide to sunglasses trends for Spring Summer 2015

We have just enjoyed the second of the May Bank Holidays and although the weather was a little mixed, we’re optimistic that Summer is on its way which is a great excuse to start talking about sunglasses!

In terms of styles for Spring Summer 2015, once again oversized glasses are featuring heavily as are retro styles (inspired by the 60s and 70s), coloured frames and lenses and if you are feeling bold then the extravagant look is definitely in this season, the bigger and the bolder the better!

For 2015, sunglasses are screaming colour! Whether it be coloured lenses or the frame itself the more colourful the better!

With the frames, Ray-Ban have a wide choice of coloured frames in all their key frame shapes including the retro Clubmaster, classic Wayfarer and timeless Aviator.


The classic Wimbledon range offers frame colours from the more subdued tortoiseshell to green and purple or pink and red.

All our frames can be customised with a lens colour of your choice and here at Eyecare we have a new range of summer lenses offering full protection in colours ranging from classic brown or grey to green or violet tints.

Mirrored lenses are also becoming increasingly popular – traditionally found in the trendy ski resorts, they are now regularly spotted on the most fashionable celebrities and we have some stunning colours to choose from. Our favourites include the striking black Ray-Ban Justin frame with red/orange mirrored lens (pictured above, similar to the Wayfarer seen on Hayden Panettiere) and the head turning pastel blue Salvatore Ferragamo frame with a electric blue mirrored lens (pictured below, similar to a style spotted on Jessica Alba recently).

Why not take advantage of our special offer on Ray-Bans at the moment to save 25% off their retail price (non-prescription only)!

Most Sunglass frames can have a prescription lens and mirrored options can be available but this does depend on both the frame and your prescription.

While you’re updating one accessory, why not update your whole look by teaming up your shades with a funky bag from the Maura Collection which can be found above the practice. Again hot bright colours are the way to go but also some stunning pastel shades to offset against the creative jewellery available. You have all the accessories you need to compliment your sunglasses and your summer outfits!

To find out more about the sunglasses we offer – including Ray-Ban, Wimbledon and Adidas, both with and without prescription lenses – make an appointment with one of our opticians or simply pop in to browse the styles on offer.
