It’s hard to predict the future but these glasses trends for 2024 will definitely help you see what’s next on the horizon in the fashion world. While other style trends can help determine a first impression or vibe when meeting someone new, glasses make the biggest impact. Anyone who looks you in the eye has no choice but to notice the glasses sitting in the middle of your face.
There’s obviously a lot of pressure to pick the perfect pair of glasses but there’s also a lot of opportunity— and with so many different options from the glasses trend roundup for 2024, you really can’t go wrong. You’ll want to find a pair of glasses, whether that’s a prescription pair or sunglasses, that add to and elevate the essence of your personal style. Glasses can help transform or solidify your style identity and could even become a part of your signature look.
If you’ve been avoiding your prescription glasses in favor of contacts, I’ve got some news for you—there has never been a cooler time to wear glasses. Celebrities, designers, and models have incorporated eyeglasses into their looks for the sake of an aesthetic. Miu Miu went preppy, Victoria Beckham went vintage, and Ulla Johnson is bringing us back to the ‘70s. As someone who has 20/20 vision (sorry to brag), I have actually started seeking out glasses with clear or blue light lenses just to get in on the styling opportunity. I love how adding a simple pair of frames can inspire a new wave of confidence and identity.
Of course, you don’t have to just take my word for it. Emma Chamberlain, Gen Z YouTube creator turned style icon, just launched a new collection of glasses with Warby Parker. The collection features Chamberlain’s favorite styles of Warby Parker glasses in three new shades. That’s right, colored frames are in for 2024.
If you’re uninterested in ditching your contacts or becoming a faux-glasses wearer (like me), I still have good news for you. Most of the glasses trends for 2024 translate into sunglass trends as well. You can have fun with bright red sunglasses (Emma Chamberlain provides inspo yet again) or stick with classic metal frames (Ray-Ban is always a good choice).
When it comes to glasses trends, all that really matters is how you see your favorite style. Keep reading for the six glasses trends we’re eyeing for 2024.
Colorful frames have been a popular sunglass trend for a few years now but the look has finally started to take over prescription eyewear. Thick or thin rims both look so cool with a strong pop of color. If you’re the type of person who is drawn to more neutral-colored outfits, this is actually the perfect trend for you to try. You can selectively add color to your neutral looks with a fun pair of frames. Red is the it color of the season and a great place to start if you aren’t sure which color to pick!
These frames from Zenni are chic and affordable! The frames themselves are under $7 and you’ll be able to customize the lenses. This pair comes in three other fun colors if red isn’t your shade.
If you haven’t worn a pair of red sunglasses since red heart sunnies were all the rage, it’s time to give them another go. This pair of red sunglasses is from Emma Chamberlain’s collection with Warby Parker and is the perfect Gen Z-approved pick.
Transparent glasses: all the cool kids are doing it. Thick clear frames are the clear choice if you consider yourself a trendsetter. These glasses have the impact of an elevated accessory without adding any clutter or heavy frames to your face. You can find clear frames in every style of glasses but an oversized shape will make them the most fashion-forward.
Even if you don’t wear prescription glasses, you can get in on the fun with blue light glasses with clear frames. This pair from Target is right on trend and won’t break the bank.
Shopping for glasses at Warby Paker is such a great experience because you can try every trend in person. There’s also a virtual try-on feature on the website so you can test this pair of clear frames.
Miu Miu declared oval glasses as the big optical trend for 2024. Multiple models rocked glasses oval silhouettes in Miu Miu’s Fall/Winter ’23 show. Even if you don’t wear prescription lenses, this is a nerdy-yet-edgy style to wear and will act as an accessory for any look. The key to nailing this trend is to look for glasses with an exaggerated oval shape that curves all the way to the nose arch.
The designer optics website is the first place I look for designer shades at a lower price point—they miraculously always have a great deal on the ones I’m eyeing (literally). Get the runway look with this Miu Miu pair.
This pair of oval glasses almost has a cat eye shape with a thicker outer corner. You can get these in all black or with tortoiseshell frames.
Wire frames make the round-up of glasses trends year after year and that’s because the look truly never goes out of style. Wire glasses specifically suit round or aviator-shaped sunglasses and eyeglasses. The look is inherently preppy and will give you a rather intellectual vibe. However, you certainly don’t have to pair these glasses with preppy clothing—leather jackets, long dresses, and chunky sweaters all go great with wire frames.
Aviator glasses are the epitome of classic. The gold metal on this pair from Warby Parker would look great when worn with gold jewelry.
You’ll own these Ray-Ban sunglasses forever because the style and quality have already withstood the test of time.
Oversized ’70s Silhouette
If you are a Daisy Jones & The Six fan, you’ll be excited to hear that ’70s trends are only growing stronger and stronger in 2024. A signature look of ’70s fashion is an oversized frame. Whether you incorporate the style with sunglasses or eyeglasses, you’ll be right in the groove of the trend. Brands like Chloé, Isabel Marant, and Ulla Johnson provide excellent ’70s inspiration in all aspects of their designs. One Pinterest search and you’re golden!
There’s no reason to do the ’70s trend halfway when you could go full-on with this pair of oversized Isabel Marant sunglasses. Très chic!
Isabel Marant Square Sunglasses
These glasses strike a balance of being both fun and sophisticated. The two-tone shade of the yellow frames also makes this pair stand out.
Thick Vintage-Inspired Frames
This vintage-inspired trend was a top choice amongst designers during the spring/summer ’24 fashion week shows. Kendall Jenner sported a pair of eyeglasses with thick black frames during Victoria Beckham’s runway show and demonstrated how the look can be modernized with current styling. This style of glasses is a great addition to the “quiet luxury” wardrobe trend.
Emma Chamberlain is another celebrity who has signed off on the thick-rimmed glasses trend. This maroon pair is a part of her new collection with Warby Parker.
Give your grandpa a run for his money with these chunky framed glasses. They’re so retro in the best way.
