Looking at getting new spectacles or maybe your first pair of spectacles? Here are a few of the hottest trends in eyewear to help you with your decision.
This unpolished look, available in both metal and acetate (plastic) frames, has fast become one of the hottest looks for eyewear designers. The non-shiny look gives the frame a softer look, making even black frames look and feel less stark against all skin tones.
Here are a few Mark Hinds Optometrists staff picks in Matte:

Now there is no denying that Round is the hardest shape to pull off in optics, but 90% of that we feel is attitude. You want it and love it, don’t let anyone stop you. The shape has been one of the major comebacks over the last few seasons. It’s a step away from the harsher traditional rectangular shape, providing a softer, edgier alternative for those wanting that ‘geek chic’ look.

- Colour Blocking
Some wild colour combinations have hit our shelves recently. Colours one would not normally dare to throw together have been used to create these fantastically unique frames that will give anyone a little pizazz to their look. We are seeing blue with green, red with pink, and even orange with teal. These unique colour combos are real show-stoppers and perfect for the individual not afraid to mix up their look.

- Chunky Acetates
With the introduction of luxury brand Céline to our eyewear family, we have re-introduced chunky back into our lives. This bold look tends to be predominately blacks and tortoise, but is broken up with some reds, blues and a unique yellow tort. Elegant and casual at the same time, it’s a look that can be worn day or night.

- Mirrored Sunglasses
It’s definitely one of the better things to come out of the eighties, available in a range of styles and colour options across a number of top sunglass brands. The sky is literally the limit it seems with this top trend. Giving your look some real flash, we are able to also provide mirror coatings to prescription sunglass lenses.
