Twice a year, we head to New York, Milan, Paris and London to see what the latest designer collections entail and what we can anticipate from this year’s trends. From bold fashion comes bold accessories to match, and this season was bolder than most after almost two years without traditional runway shows.
Of course, we are talking about sunglasses. While sunglasses are best known for being worn as the summer and beach season quickly approaches, they are a year-round staple, whether it is hot or cold, as they are essential to complement our outfits. And it is also the perfect opportunity to expand your style based on the top sunglasses trends in 2022.
The overall theme of sunglasses trends is silhouettes and styles that have made a statement. Major fashion houses have implemented these trends in their Fall collections. Some of them, such as Christian Dior, Versace, LaQuan Smith, Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent and Fendi, were great sources of inspiration when it came to sunglasses.
