2020 Spring/Summer's Hottest Womens Sunglass Trends
From the edgy and bold to the chic and classic, these five hot SS20 women’s sunglass trends will see you make a style statement this season.
The SS20 women’s sunglass trends feature some holdovers from previous years (here’s looking at you oval sunglasses!). But while many of us have been laying low lifestyle-wise, when it’s time to don the sunglasses and go outside, we’re going large!
Here’s our round-up of five of the hottest trends for women’s sunglasses this Spring/Summer 2020 season
#1 Retro renegade
While still giving us plenty of retro vibes, the mission of these geometric-inspired sunglass shades this SS20 season is to add a subtle edge to your everyday look
A ’90s renaissance of ultra-small, slim styles hit the runway for the SS20 women’s sunglass trends from designer brands, including Valentino sunglasses and Burberry sunglasses showing upscaled versions of the oval, rectangular, and triangle frames and off-kilter shapes that were so prevalent last year. The Spring/Summer 2020 women's sunglass trends see many brands featuring extra-thick plastic frames and micro-minis in a wide range of solid colours to add a subtle edge to your everyday look.
#2 Larger than life
Oversized square or extra-large round sunglasses in thick frames are a major breakout in the spring/summer 2020 eyewear trends, with some of the world’s best designers and fashion houses embracing 70s-inspired sunglasses for SS20.
SS20 women’s sunglass trends see the return of oversized sunglass frames for women, taking inspiration from seventies extravagance. Expect to see all the fashion influencers supersizing their ‘gram-ready 70s style sunglasses!
Modern updates on oversized retro sunglass shapes include matte and gradient acetate frames, tinted colour, flamboyant frame shapes, and fresh colour palettes. Chloé sunglasses played on the 70s eyewear trend with rimless styles and rose-coloured gradient lens, while Gucci sunglasses again went big and bold in their SS20 collections. Adapt or update your current pair with Gucci replacement sunglass lenses for a look that is made for a modern-day flower child.
#3 Colour splash
Inspired by blooming florals of Spring and the sunshine-soaked mood of Summer, the SS20 women’s sunglass trends include plenty of pops of colour to brighten our days.
From dreamy pastel hues to bold and beautiful rainbow shades, the SS20 women's sunglass trends are an explosion of colour, with pink sunglasses lenses making a statement.
The best examples of coloured sunglasses for women this SS20 season are those that feature the same hue on the entire design, with lenses tinted in the same colours as the frames. Miu Miu sunglasses made a big impact in the SS20 women’s eyewear trends with their pops of lavender coloured eyewear, but you could adapt the coloured eyewear trend to any of your favourite sunglass frames by switching to the new wave of lens options - simply choose replacement sunglass lenses in your preferred shade for an instant update.
#4 Timeless classic
Long-lasting wardrobe staples and utility-focused basics are the cornerstones of classic style - and you cannot go wrong with the OG of all sunglass styles, the Aviator
Aviators are high on the trend forecasts every year, and the SS20 season offers an array of new Aviator sunglass styles. Both Celine sunglasses and Michael Kors sunglass collections offered up a classy spin, releasing metal-framed aviator sunglasses in an oversized style for their Spring/Summer 2020 women’s eyewear collections.
There’s also the more rounded and feminine shapes currently trending in Aviator sunglasses, and retro touches like the tortoiseshell brow bar in the SS20 women’s Aviator-style sunglasses from Stella McCartney. But, really, when it comes to Aviators, you can’t go wrong with Ray-Ban’s timeless classic, the RB3025. Add an on-trend edge with some rose-tinted lenses, or update your favourite pair with Ray-Ban sunglass lens replacements, like our high-quality Polyamide lenses with the optical clarity of glass (they are as good if not better than your original Ray-Ban lenses!).
#5 Fiercely feline
From petite and subtle to big, bold and edgy, the cat-eye style of sunglasses is making its feline prowess known on the SS20 fashion trend forecast.
The revamped cat-eye shapes in the SS20 women’s sunglass trends take on bold, thick acetates and a more angular edge to the frame add a modern flair. And the more narrow frames that make the cat-eye sunglass style such a classic are here to stay, albeit with a much more muted approach – think black on black lens and frames for a sophisticated and chic spin on this retro fave.
Consider updating your favourite pair of cat-eye sunglasses with sunglass lens replacements to suit the current sunglass trends, or do as Dolce & Gabbana did for their SS20 women’s sunglass collection and opt for some bolder, patterned choices (floral printed frames, anyone?), or the crystal-embellished cat-eye frames a la Marc Jacobs sunglasses.
