VISIONWORKS UNVEILS FALL 2016’S TOP TRENDS IN FASHIONABLE FRAMES
From Vibrant and Dramatic to Translucent and Subtle – Shop the Season’s Hottest Trends in Eyewear
August 4, 2016
SAN ANTONIO - This fall, Visionworks and Visionworks.com tempts trendsetters with bold, dramatic details and vibrant colors for this season’s favorite face-framing fashion accessory – eyeglasses. Important looks range from bold to subtle and run the gamut from bold color to transparency. Visionworks offers its vast selection of on-trend eyewear and expertise in eye care to its customers in over 700 stores and online. With this year’s e-commerce launch, customers have even more options to explore their personal style and have the season’s hottest frames delivered right to their door.
“This season is one of rich hues, luxurious textures and dramatic details, taking fashion to a new level of sophistication,” said Sue Hopeman, Chief Merchandising Officer for Visionworks. “For men, rich shades of blue with matte and textured finishes give a subdued, modern touch, while women play with daring, masculine details for a new bold look.”
“Visionworks has the largest selection of frames in the industry and we’re continuously adding to our assortment. This fall, we’re thrilled to offer Ray-Ban in store and online, said Jim Eisen, president and CEO of HVHC Inc., and president of Visionworks. “We happy to have a fresh perspective at Visionworks and look forward to continuing to service our customers in new and exciting ways,” added Eisen.
For customers who prefer to see what frames work for their face shape before making a purchase, Visionworks.com offers a Try-On view, as well as filters like color, face or frame shape, to help narrow customers’ selection. Customers can also visit the Visionworks Instagram account for more shopping inspiration.
Hopeman advocates embracing one or more of the key trends in eyewear for Fall 2016:
For the Guys:
Shades of Blue - Guys take a few tips from the ladies and step out of their comfort zone when it comes to color. This season we see shades of blue on these dapper dandies. Matte and textured finishes give a modern touch, while a translucent blue frame has a more subdued feel. These cool toned frames are a must in every gentleman’s eye wardrobe.
For the Ladies:
Masculine Influence - Move over cat-eye, there is a new bold look in town. Masculine details on women’s frames add a daring look this season. Thick bold frames are key in this juxtaposition of hard and soft details. Need a little more subtlety; opt for a thin oversized plastic frame to keep in trend.
Keyhole Bridge - With the modern vintage trend still in full force, bridge details are getting a throw-back detail. Keyholes can be seen in both men and women frames this season. Paired with a round or square silhouette, this trend is sure to become a staple in your eyewear wardrobe. Translucent- Transparency becomes a hot trend for this season. Metal details and patterned temples give a fun touch, while lightly tinted colored frames are the true star of this must have trend.
Vivid Suns - It is no surprise to see one of summer 2016 trends, Vibrant Hues, crossover into the fall. Colorful suns can be seen throughout fall for a much needed pop of color. In a time of neutral color palettes in outerwear, opt for a playful sun in a vibrant tone to stand out in a crowd of neutrals.
