Sunglasses Trends for Spring (Updated 2021)

Sunglasses Trends for Spring (Updated 2021)

Jan 29th 2021

Sunglasses have a way of turning heads, and the new shades out this coming spring are certainly stylish. Whether they're men's sunglasses or women's sunglasses, they're a necessity! We’re excited to bring the latest Spring 2021 trends in sunglasses to our customers, and think you’ll enjoy finding a trend that suits your own personal style.

It's important to know how to choose the best sunglasses for your face shape. Read on to discover some of the most popular sunglasses styles around.

Oversized Aviators

There’s something undeniably cool about aviator sunglasses. That’s one of the reasons they never fully leave the fashion scene. This year’s aviators, however, have undergone a shape change. They’re larger and sturdier than classic aviators, perfect for a more masculine vibe. Still hanging on to the classic teardrop shape of the lens, this spring’s oversized aviators take some new cues from hip-hop and streetwear trends. The fashion-forward will love this new twist on a classic look.

Retro-Inspired Round Frames

Channeling the metal shapes popular in the 1970s as well as the smaller frames of the 1990s grunge era, this year’s round vintage sunglasses are reminiscent of the original hipster glasses. Fans of John Lennon will appreciate this new trend. Just like the Heracles sunglasses, they work best on narrow to medium face shapes and are particularly attractive for people with angular facial features.


D-frame sunglasses manage to be both contemporary and retro at the same time. With their sharp, straight slice across the top of the rims, these frames have a futuristic feel to them, although they’re certainly not new. What’s new about this year’s D-frame trend is that they have a more masculine character, and they’re appearing in many different colors and textures. D-frames are great for people with round face shapes. If you're looking for a pair of D-frame sunglasses, be sure to check out the EROS.

Heavy Browline Frames

Flat-topped and square, heavy browline frames last had a successful appearance in the 1980s and 1990s. We’re glad to have them back, especially with their new contemporary twists like the Odin!

Today’s heavy browline frames are sleek. Their more prominent browline and subtle curves provide a fresh retro nod to a classic shape. They’re perfect for triangle-shaped faces and defined jawlines.

Square Wayfarers

Way back in the 1950s, Ray-Ban introduced wayfarer sunglasses, and the style has been associated with summer and beaches ever since. Since then, the popularity of wayfarers has fluctuated, as styles do, but they’re making a definite comeback, like the Zeus, this spring.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking wayfarers belong exclusively on the beach, though. With features like tortoise shell styling, mirrored frames, tapered temples, and even silver rivets, this year’s wayfarers are as cool and comfortable as ever and look as natural with business suits as they do with sandals.

Colorful Lenses

This spring you’ll be seeing many different frame styles with colorful lenses, including options in  Purple, Gold, Blue, and even Rose Gold! Including a pop of color in your sunglasses is a simple and interesting way to accessorize, and you might just see your world a little differently when you’re looking through ombre lenses. Look for pinkish, yellow, and even greenish tints this coming spring.

Cat-Eye Shapes

Already popular in the academic and business environments, cat-eye shapes are another definite trend in sunglasses this spring. You’ll find a variety of shapes, from rounded frames with a hint of a peak at the temples to highly stylized modern silhouettes. Cat-eye sunglasses are playful and sexy. Enjoy the fashion possibilities!

Classic Cool Clubmasters

Perhaps you only want to invest in one solid pair of trendy sunglasses this coming spring. Classic cool Clubmasters might be just what you’re looking for. Fusing casual style and fashion statements, these shades have shown up on many of Hollywood’s leading men, including Bruce Willis in the 1980s TV series Moonlighting. Originally designed in the late 1940s by Shuron Ronsir's vice president Jack Rohrbach, Clubmasters are back again this coming spring. The Odin is a great option for some cool Clubmasters. They offer a refined but casual look that's undoubtedly chic, and are available in a variety of materials and styles.

With so many great trends on offer this coming spring, it can be difficult to make a decision about the right pair of sunglasses. The best thing you can do is visit our shop and try on the latest styles. Feel free to contact us with questions if you'd like to buy sunglasses online.
