2011 Trends in Eyeglasses and Where to Find Them

Chances are if you wear eyeglasses, the frame and lens styles you pick are an integral part of your individual character. In fact, several people continue using glasses and eschew substitutes such as contacts or corrective surgery because they are comfortable in their choice of eyewear and like how they look with them on! Well, as long as you are wearing glasses, why not enjoy them?

Frames are so cost effective these days that you can get into the best trends while still keeping a close eye on your budget. Here are a few of the greatest trends in eyeglasses for 2011 and where to find the perfect pair to complement your unique sense of style.

John Lennon Eyeglasses: 2010 marks the 30th anniversary of the Beatles icon’s death, and with any meaningful day comes a renewed public interest. Therefore, John Lennon eyeglasses will find resurgent popularity – but that style never left! The simplified round look is classic, works great in both formal and casual contexts and complements virtually any facial shape. Beatle’s love is here [Beatlemania is here to stay]!

“Frameless:” Of all the people that wear the “frameless” look, Sarah Palin is largely responsible for the return of the “frameless” look. Rectangular lenses give a look of floating with little effort, but don’t be fooled: this style of eyeglasses is carefully engineered for durability. There is a wide variety of arms for frameless glasses: and that’s where your unique nature can really shine through.

Retro: Shapes from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s have been popular for several years and show no signs of slowing whatsoever. Cat’s eye designs in a wide variety of colors are still ultra-hot, especially for the college co-ed crowd and as reading glasses; massive round frames a la Jackie O are especially in great demand as prescription sunglasses.

Arm Details: For a more valuable look, special detailing within the arms of the eyeglasses is quite pleasing. You can choose virtually any shape of lens, and then group it with cool arms that fit your personal style: arms with cutouts, with leather or wood inlay, specific logos near the temple or even real jewel accents.
