1. Square Sunglasses

Sunglasses Trends 2022

Oversized shades are one of the hottest trends in the industry right now. They allow you to show off your taste for flare while protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays.

Many fashion experts are applauding the combination of oversized square sunglasses and straw hats. Together, they give us all a reminder of the warm summer months and scream, “I wish I were on a beach right now!”

You can find square-shaped sunglasses made of all one material and allow you to have a luxurious look. For example, we highly recommend these designer sunglasses for women on our website.

The colour combinations on all of our square sunglasses options will match almost any outfit. Whether you’re hitting the town with friends or going on a date in downtown London, your sunglasses will be equal to the challenge.

2. Aviator Sunglasses

Sometimes, it’s better to partake in the timeless sunglass models. That way, you can invest in a high-quality pair of sunglasses without having to worry about whether they’ll be in style two or three years down the line.

As we just mentioned, oversized sunglasses are the hottest trend for 2022. Aviators certainly fit that mould, giving you full coverage and having the perfect amount of sun glare to those that feast their eyes on them.

You’ll love the mirroring effect that Aviator sunglasses offer, making you look cool and fashionable for the beach, a night out on the town, or dressing up for a Saturday morning brunch with friends.

Fellas, we recommend that you scope out the branded sunglasses for men on our site. The Ellerston model by Oliver Peoples is the perfect no-nonsense style for any getup. Men and women alike will enjoy the silver frames with dark lenses. It’s a timeless look that no one can deny.

The best part? Aviators go so well with so many vital pieces of your wardrobe. As a matter of fact, the Gentlemens Gazette recommends selecting your clothing based on your Aviator sunglasses. They say Aviators work well with pieces like:

  • Business attire that toes the line between flashy and formal
  • Casual wear, such as chinos and a button-down shirt
  • Leather jackets

The list goes on and on. Invest in a trusted brand (like Oliver Peoples mentioned above) and always have a go-to pair of shades in your car.

3. Thin Shades

Jimmy Choo - Iona

If oversized sunglasses aren’t your style, then you’ll be happy to know that the other end of the spectrum is just as trendy. Many celebrities have been rocking thin shades, such as the options for designer eyewear on our site.

The Iona model will give you a sassy and futuristic look. As soon as people lay eyes on these specs, they’ll know that you’re a spontaneous and sophisticated personality. It will have strangers curious to learn more about you.

This model specifically has black plastic surrounding the bottom of the frames with gold arms, giving it a more high-end appeal.

We’d like to remind you that Lux Eyewear offers free UK shipping and a secure, fast payment option to give you access to your new sunglasses all the quicker.

If you’re looking for a pair of sunglasses that match your larger-than-life personality, then be sure to get your hands on a pair of thin-lensed sunglasses. Very few other people will be rocking them!

4. Modern-Day Cat Eye Sunglasses

Oliver Peoples - Georgica

Cat-Eyed sunglasses have made a monumental comeback in the last year, thanks to a certain glass-ceiling-shattering TV show. Here’s a hint: “Ew, David!”

That said, the trendy modern-day cat-eye Cazal sunglasses are more of a mixture between cat-eye sunglasses and butterfly sunglasses, with a few wayfarer sunglasses mixed in. If you’re having a hard time envisioning that, think of David Rose’s sunglasses from Schitt’s Creek.

If you’re looking to join the cat-eye movement, then check out the Georgica model from Oliver Peoples for starters. They’re the ideal lifestyle sunglasses for all you sassy women out there!

5. Glam Sunglasses

Jimmy Choo - Shine

Some of you out there love to implement glitz and glamour into your fashion. If you fit that category, then you’ll be happy to know glam sunglasses are a hot trend for 2022 and beyond.

Glam sunglasses infuse the perfect amount of gold and sparkle into their design. The Jimmy Choo Shine glasses are the epitome of glam fashion.

They pair black and gold beautifully to provide a stark contrast. The black helps the gold to pop even more, and the black stones on the rim are a subtle way to make the glasses glisten a bit more in the sun.
