Trends: Thin metal

The thinner the better!

Thin metal frames aren’t just for your favorite 90’s sitcom; they’re also one of the hottest eyewear style trends for 2018. Slimmed down to perfection with definite sculpted lines, thin metal frames are tailored, sleek and light on the face.

If you’ve been donning thick eyeglasses frames for the last couple of years, it’s time to refresh your look with 2018’s 70s-inspired metal frames. Choose thin metal-framed round glasses to a slightly larger aviator style frame. This eyewear trend is the perfect look for the playful minimalist that likes to have fun with their style.

With a definite celeb stamp of approval, thin metal frames are already infiltrating Hollywood and beyond. When supermodel Gigi Hadid is sporting the latest in eyewear fashion, you know it’s going to be huge! Hadid’s equally famous sister, Bella, is also a massive fan. As are Victoria Secret’s model Kendall Jenner and Hollywood actress Tracee Ellis Ross.
