Top 3 Men’s Eyewear Trends for 2022

1. Unique Aviator Frame Shapes

The aviator is among the most classic and recognizable frame shapes of the modern era. Look out for new twists on this highly popular style, often expressing masculine features with softer angles. Brow bars are very popular for this frame shape, adding a stern personality to the frame and balanced with shallower teardrop lenses. Some aviator styles mix with geometric styles and are wonderfully experimental for the adventurous.

Retro and vintage styles are very in as eyewear styles often look back at the best of previous decades to match face shapes to the styles of today. The previous two years have shaken up general fashion trends, bringing individuals back to their roots of personal fashion. Retro square frames are an old-school 70s style that predates the hipster style. These frames are often thick, very square, and considered an intelligent but playful style.

2. Lightly Tinted Glasses

Light lens tints are rising in popularity and a great choice for adding flare to your eyewear. Lightly tinted prescription glasses add a very slight color hue to your perspective, worn all day rather than only when you might wear sunglasses outside. The color of your light tints can be natural gray or green to reduce brightness and glare, pink or red to help adjust to contrast and depth perception, blue or purple for a calming natural aura or vibrant yellow to reduce eye staring and bring more energy into your perspective. Lightly tinted glasses are both stylish and beneficial to bringing on a fresh perspective for 2022.

3. Rounded Cat-Eye Frame Shapes

Some eyewear stylists like to call this trendy style of frame “kitten” glasses. Cat-eye shaped frames are marked by exaggerated top corners of the frame. A rounded cat-eye style, or kitten glasses style, has a similar upwardly turned shape but without sharp angles, offering a softer take on this very popular and legendary feminine eyewear style. This frame shape is similar to D-frame glasses but with a clearly round style and exaggerated upper corner.
