Though the rise of colored lenses came through the winter, the vibrant trend has come back for another round. Perfect for Spring through Summer, the tinted lenses pair perfectly with one of the hottest trend of the season: tropical prints. This bright pattern has made a massive impression on the catwalks, from Yohji Yamamoto to Valentino.
It’s full of trees, leaves, flowers, beaches, islands, gardens, colours and abstract details. The explosion of colour and mix of flora and fauna can be everywhere, starting from the summer collections to fashionista everyday looks.
If you think your outfit looks neutral and boring, then this print will balance everything out. Next season, the go-to motif will channel the tropics rather than what you’d normally find at your local flower shop. Style ensembles with a monochrome, gold or silver frame, to give the look an extra pop of colour, or to simply brighten up your day.
Your vision can be vitamin-injected with yellow through to orange, and electric blue to flashy purple, in all kinds of silhouettes: rounded to cat-eye, squared or oversized. Whether you go with a bold ‘70s silhouette or a more ‘90s-flavored look, don’t be afraid of the different shades; and keep in mind that the tinted lens can also elevate your black attire, in case you are not a fan of rainbow hues.
