The revival of coloured lenses
Whether we're emotionally ready for it or not, the revival of fashion from the 2000's has begun.
Yep, that’s right–better get ready to relive some of your best ‘what was I thinking?’ moments. While some of the eyewear trends of the ‘naughties’ can stay well and truly buried (diamanté encrusted frames, anyone?), one iconic look has returned in full force–the glorious coloured lens. Donned regularly by the likes of Drew Barrymore and the Olsen twins, with tones in vibrant red or blue, the tinted lens was hard to ignore.
The ‘naughties’ tinted eye wear trends brought us tinted lenses with rose being one of the more popular colours.
Fast-forward 19 years, and coloured lenses are back on the catwalk. They were a celebrated summer trend, and don’t seem to be going anywhere fast. Punctuating the attire of celebrities and style bloggers alike, statement glasses and tinted lenses are a great way to add an additional pop of colour to daily wear. Pair with complementary colours for a polished look.
Nowadays, the tinted lens is making a cool come back adding pops of stylish colour to your everyday wardrobe.
