  1. Eyewear trends to watch for 2021
    Eyewear trends to watch for 2021

    We can all agree that we are happy to see the back of 2020! It is time to face a new year, a new mindset and, of course, a new wardrobe. Although some recurring trends have been carried through to the Spring/Summer 2021, we invite with open arms the newest trends like the oversized statement frame! Lockdowns, however, we do not. 

    After all, it is only January, and you might not be thinking about Summer or getting a new pair of sunglasses to go with it - but don’t be fooled. Sunglasses are not only a summer accessory, the winter sun can also be blinding! Stay ahead of the SS21 trends and wear your new shades now. 

    Trends to watch this year are geometric aviators, retro styling and tinted lenses. This year is led by timeless silhouettes and, of course, the ’70s - we haven’t given up on that era yet. 

    Brands to keep in mind for 2021: Miu Miu, Chloe, Botte

    Geek Chic

    So many of us need optical frames for the obvious, practical reason - to see better. However, fashion enthusiasts among us purely wear frames to be on-trend. A trend which is always trickling in and out of fashion is geek chic which leans heavily on glasses for its impact.  Many glasses shapes are considered ‘geeky’ and our favourite influencers have made being a geek fashionable. Justin Timberlake is one actor who often represents the geek chic styling, along with Matt Smith and Alexa Chung. So in the eyewear industry, geek chic has become a timeless trend, which makes spending money on a luxury pair of specs more worthwhile as you’ll able to wear the same pair of glasses season after season. 

    Picking a frame style which suits you is always important. Luckily the geek chic look can be achieved with very different eyewear shapes and sty

    The Ultimate Guide to Black Friday 2019

    What is Black Friday?

    A trend which started in America, Black Friday is the last pay day before Christmas. As it is the last pay day, all retailers put on large discounted sales causing shopping to become a little bit crazy. That is why we recommend staying safe and enjoying the sales from the comfort of your sofa and laptop.

    When is Black Friday this year?

    This year’s date is the 29th of November so keep that in your diary - It is only 1 week away. The sale date always happens to fall on the Friday after Thanksgiving, however the sales will last all weekend with Cyber Monday following, so don’t worry you have a whole weekend to enjoy the sales. However, be quick while stocks last!
