Trends come and go, and then come back again; such is the way the eyewear world works when we get to see some of our favorites making a comeback. And now, sunglasses chains (known by many as sunglasses lanyards) are fashionistas latest love. Often called simply “chain glasses”, big and small brands started to introduce the word to create a new product category to embellish each and every frame if not built-in, so that they are part of the frame itself, with interchangeable chains, earrings, silicon chords and also suitable for men with a developed fashion sense. Sunglasses lanyards are indeed chains that you can attach or clip to the sides of your sunglasses and drape behind your head, like a backwards necklace. These chains were poised to be big since a couple of seasons, precisely since the beginning of 2020 when we were shifting to more edgy accessories to contrast a rather minimal choice of outfits. As we move away from the comfort wear after the pandemic, accessorizing seems all people are looking to elevate the look, eventhough this season is more about glamour than going extra bold, the chains are more jewellery-inspired, sport inspired rather than the whimsical we saw last season. In the crossroads between functional accessory and full-fledged jewelry, the chain stands out as the ideal detail to up a fashion game and can vary in length, material (pearls, metal, silver, gold, acetate, beads, crystals) so that they can adapt to all the different shapes with no limits. Frames silhouettes vary from sqaured-oval to oversize for a very dramatic effect, from rectangular ones to light metal or gold ones with a strong presence of brown shaded lens, the chain can match the frame in terms of color or material or they may not, becoming a choice the weared does according to their mood, style and occasion.
