This article looks at the trends in glasses in 2020 and recommends a few pairs as well. It looks for sizing, practicality, as well as personal style.
After a hectic year, you deserve to trade in those old, beat-up frames for a new pair you’ll feel confident wearing. Our team here at Debbie Mozelle’s have shared their top picks for anyone looking for a fresh perspective in 2021.
1. Bourgeois CH6624
These glasses have a traditional rounded shape with a slight cat-eye. The purple and black outside gives a subtle pop of colour for those looking to add some spice to their new year’s wardrobe. Eyeglasses are sized using three measurements. The width of the lens, where your eye actually sits, the width of the bridge, and the length from the top of the frame to the end of the arm, often referred to as the temple measurement. These frames come in size 53-17-135.
2. Bourgeois CH2032
Anyone looking for a more androgynous look should check out the CH2032 by Bourgeois. The rose gold arms will blend into lighter skin tones for a subtle look or create interest and contrast on those with darker skin tones. This pair comes in size 49-18-135.
3. Cat-eye glasses
If you’re looking for more of a general idea for what type of frames you want we have you covered there too. Trends are fabled to cycle every 20-30 years, but glasses must be running a few years late because 2020 has seen a massive resurgence in the popularity of cat-eye glasses. Women have once again been captivated by the timeless swoop upwards of the frames. A red pair will give an extremely retro look, or you could go with a black if you wanted a more modern, sleek vibe.
4. Rounded Glasses
Rounded glasses used to be associated exclusively with Harry Potter but they’re making a comeback in today’s fashion world. Made most commonly out of metal or wire, this academic look has been gaining popularity, especially among the younger generation. If you have an older child or teenager in need of some new glasses, see if they would be interested in getting in on this trend.
If any of these ideas caught your eye, come in and check them out in person. And even if none of these frames are quite your style, we have countless other options for you to try on.
The team at Debbie Mozelle wishes you a happy holiday season and a great start to the new year!
