The Future of Eyewear: Trends to Watch in 2024

A new year has quickly snuck up on us - it’s time to officially welcome in 2024. With the start of a new year comes the exciting opportunity for new beginnings, from trying to learn something new to adding more exercise to your daily routine to taking the time to meditate. There are so many things you can do to celebrate the coming of a brand new year.

One of our favorite parts about a new year is the opportunity to reinvent ourselves and update our wardrobes with new trends for the year ahead. There is always something new and exciting on the horizon that will help you push your fashion boundaries in all of the right ways.

And along with clothing and accessories comes your prescription eyeglasses. Just like everything else that you wear, prescription eyeglasses trends come and go and should be considered as you swap out your wardrobe for the new year.

If you’re interested in learning more about what’s going to be popular in 2024 in the world of designer prescription eyewear, we’re here to help. Keep reading to discover some of the top trends we’ve identified for the year ahead and to find a few options to add to your personal collection that are in line with each unique style.

Going Red Hot

We’ll start our 2024 trend list with one of the easier options to pull off - red hot eyeglasses. One of the hottest colors of the year has been named bright cherry red and we are so excited to add this color to our daily outfits. One easy way to slip this color into your look is by picking out a pair of stylish red prescription eyeglasses. This subtle pop of color will draw attention to your glowing face and add a daring edge to your outfit.

If you’re a little wary of going for a super bright red color, you can always opt for something a little deeper and more muted to keep things a bit more neutral. On the other hand, you can always go as bold and bright as you want with your designer prescription eyewear.

However, always make sure that before you choose the perfect red eyeglasses, take a closer look at your skin tone and make sure that they’re a good fit for your unique complexion.

All About Unique Shapes

Another fun and easy trend to add to your daily lineup is the new idea of unique prescription eyeglasses shapes. From whimsical oversized cat-eye frames to bold combinations of cat-eye and square frames, there are so many new options out there that can help you jump in on this trend with little to no effort on your part.

This trend is a bit more statement-making than the others and is a great option to inspire confidence on any day of the year.

As with any pair of prescription eyeglasses, always consider how they will look with your unique face shape and silhouette before you hop into purchasing them. After all, you still want your eyeglasses to look flattering even if you’ve chosen them to make a stylish fashion statement!

After you’ve determined which styles and shapes work best for your face, feel free to pick any type of unique frame that will suit you and get ready to step straight into a stylish 2024.

The Perfect Pattern Play

Another trend we’re seeing lighting up in 2024 in the world of designer prescription eyeglasses is the mixing of patterns and colors. While so many of us have been wearing glasses with one color or one pattern, such as tortoiseshell, this year is all about pushing the boundaries and mixing things up.

From wearing glasses with multiple colored frames to opting for a pair with a blend of stripes and polka dots, the world is your oyster in switching things up with this trend.

While pattern play may feel like a difficult trend to pull off, there are plenty of ways to slip this into your look. Try opting for a pair of stylish prescription eyeglasses with a blend of a classic pattern, such as tortoiseshell, with a neutral color.

Or, you can go for something a little more striking, such as a mix of two different colors with bright accents. No matter how you wear it, this trend will certainly make a stylish statement all year long.

Keeping Sun Protection Top of Mind

So many of us have the perfect pair of daily designer prescription eyeglasses to keep us seeing clearly. However, the opposite is true when it comes to designer prescription sunglasses. An important part of eye health, keeping your eyes protected from the sun will help you from developing eye strain and pain as well as prevent damage from direct sunlight.

For 2024, amp up your outdoor eye protection with the perfect pair of prescription sunglasses. From modern polarized frames to stylish square wayfarer sunglasses, there are so many options out there that can be fully customized to fit your unique prescription and needs.

Additionally, if you don’t find a pair of sunglasses that you like, you can also purchase special lenses, known as ‘transition lenses,’ that can change from clear eyeglasses lenses to sunglasses lenses when you go outdoors and are exposed to sunlight.
