While stylish sunglasses are a year-round wardrobe essential, the accessory is synonymous with the spring and summer months. As such, the anticipation of warmer weather prompts us all to reevaluate our current sunglasses collections and look for new updates to the rotation. And we certainly have some new and bold sunglasses trends ready to explore — and complement the 2023 spring and summer ready-to-wear trends already on our radar.
This year, we are seeing the classic sunglasses shapes and colors reimagined. That could be a retro shape upgraded with a new color frame or mirrored lens; an oversize take on a timeless style; or a silhouette that feels vintage and futuristic at the same time. With a seasonal color palette that ranges from bright pink to classic white, incorporating neutral blacks and tortoise tones, there’s something for everyone when it comes to the biggest sunglasses trends of 2023.
If you like to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, or step out in bold, monochromatic hues, you’ll love the Barbiecore pink sunglasses trend. It’s a playful and vibrant take on your everyday sunnies, adding a carefree vibe to any outfit you pair it with. For a futuristic trend, look no further than highly reflective lenses. The mirrored shades are upgrading classic styles and giving them a fashion-forward edge. And of course, there’s the proliferation of new neutrals, like white, showing up on oversize and standard sunglasses alike.
