masunagaGlasses aren’t just for improving your vision or keeping the sun out of your eyes, although that is part of it.

These days they’re also the unofficial must have fashion accessory. If you have to wear glasses, even just for reading, why not choose a pair that looks great?

Here at Spektacles, we know what matters to our patients. And that includes having healthy vision while staying fashionable. This is why we decided to take a look at some of this spring’s hottest eyewear trends.

Whether you’re looking for corrective eyewear or just a good looking pair of shades, we’ve got you covered this spring at Spektacles San Diego.

Hottest Eyewear Trends for Spring – 


Old is new again, and this season’s glasses have a 1970’s vibe. Tortoiseshell and wooden frames are back in style, as are tinted lenses.

The influence of social media images as shared widely across popular platform Instagram have made rose and gold tinted lenses popular this year as well. 

Bright and Bold: 

Colorful frames aren’t just for kids or your eccentric aunt. Bright and bold colors have been cropping up quite a bit this season in eyewear. Ocean blues are especially hot right now. Other shades of blue such as teal, turquoise, and cobalt are “in.”

Earthy Elements: 

Not sure you can pull off a pair of aqua blue frames? The natural colors of spring are going to be big as well when it comes to eyewear. Natural earth tones, especially easy going greens, will definitely be hot. Another nod to the 70’s this season are floral patterns and pinks, but make sure to choose shades that complement your skin tone and complexion.


More is More: 

Going big, for example with frames such as aviators and oversized round frames is also something to try. What used to be awkward has become hip. If you have bold features, you can pull this look off. More petite? Choose frames that incorporate bold aesthetics, but don’t overwhelm your face. Your gorgeous face should be the first thing people notice, not your glasses.

Hip to be Square: 

We can’t stress this enough when it comes to spring eyewear trends. Angles, angles, angles. The geometric look is really in. Triangle shapes and hexagonal frames will be popular, but you might want to try these in a sunglasses style rather than your everyday specs. You still want to be taken seriously after all.


Other trends that are popular run the gamut, from overly-decorated styles with studs and other ornamentation to minimalist frames in clear or rimless options.

Whatever your personal style might be, there are frames and options to suit you. It’s going to be a good year for glasses. Here are a few other things to consider when choosing the best pair of glasses for your unique needs.

Here at Spektacles, we carry a wide variety of frames from some of the top designers like Tom Ford, Gucci, Armani, Kate Spade, Juicy Couture, and Ray Ban just to name a few. And don’t forget our diverse selection of sunglasses. There are plenty of options when it comes to sunglasses, including prescription sunglasses and glasses that transition when the sun’s light changes. If you’ve never been properly fitted for sunglasses or glasses of any kind, one of our trained staff members would be happy to assist you.
