Eyewear Trends for Her from Fashion Week 2015

Romance definitely filled the air when it came to the spring 2015 runway collections, as designers embraced flowy fits, decadent florals and pretty embellishments… sigh! Trends are also emerging on the eyewear front, with round frames making a major comeback and wayfarer and cat-eye designs holding strong.

Highs in the ‘70s

This progressive decade is making a major comeback this season, replacing tight fits with a more relaxed and cozy feel. Designers like St. Laurent, Miu Miu and Emilio Pucci debuted a range of vintage-inspired ensembles featuring flattering A-line cuts, daring mini skirts, soft suede fabric, knee-high boots and hip-hugging trousers. The adage that history repeats itself rings fashionably true with these updated retro designs. Complement the look with ’70s-inspired glasses, such as these round frames in tortoiseshell:

Bohemian Bliss

Flowers are in bloom, and boho chic styles are all the rage! The bohemian trend continued to dominate the runways this year with flowy fabrics, lightweight knits and sheer layers. Romantic chiffon gowns complemented casual and roomy tunics in collections from Dries Van Noten, Joseph Altuzarra, Toga and The Row. Round frames pair perfectly with the bohemian aesthetic, especially when they feature a flattering and intricate color pop:
