2013 Fall Eyewear Trends

This Fall you’ll see that eyewear is brimming with stylish statements. Outfits will be amped up with glasses that have chic shapes and colors. Eyewear that you’ve see on the runway might seem a little over the top, but don’t shy away from it, fashion experts say it will be a great accent to any outfit.

“During New York’s Fashion Week, we saw a revolution in eyewear,” observes Gayle Haworth, Co-Found of Flutter Eyewear. “Oversized oval frames on the runway … Off the runway, oversized statement sunglasses were the order of the day, in spite of the rain and snow.”

Classic frame shapes like rounds and cat eye’s have been popping up in more colorful styles this year. If you really want to be bold, try wearing men’s fames (on women), it can add a powerful edge to any outfit.

Popular colors you’ll see this fall season will be deep greens, smoky grays, (which is a great alternative to black) warm purples and vibrant oranges. Frames that have two-toned colors are an excellent choice. They match perfectly with the changing autumn colors and the ombre fade trends.

The trick to staying fashionable this fall is to stay within the basic colors and shapes of the trend. The great thing about eyewear is that you can quickly update your look with just a pair of glasses.

5 tips for protecting your eyes at the beach

Everyone loves the beach, just don’t get caught up in the excitement and forget your sunnies!

July is Eye Injury Prevention Month, and Metro Eye wants to help you protect your beautiful eyes from that sneaky sun.

Here are our 5 tips you can’t forget:

  1. Polarized sunglasses are ideal for boaters, fishermen and beach-goers — anyone who spends time outdoors. Polarized lenses help reduce discomforting glare.
  2. Be sure your sunglasses fit correctly. Not sure what the right sunglass shape is for your face? No problem — we covered this in a previous blog. ;)
  3. Save your larger, oversized glasses for later on in the evening when you are less likely to get tan lines.
  4. Don’t head-butt the beach ball. It’s tempting, I know. But for the sake of your eye health — not a great idea.
  5. Finally, remember to check that UV sticker when you’re buying shades. Make sure it blocks more than 90% UV A and UV B. Anything less and it’s like going to the beach without enough suntan lotion.

For more tips, contact our optical stylists (414-727-5888) and set up a fitting of your own!
