Top Trends for 2016: Glasses

A new year means new trends. The days when glasses and specs were considered geeky are now a faint memory of the past. Glasses have become a staple fashion accessory and trend-setters all over the world are now wearing glasses daily – whether they really need to see 20-20 or not. Here are the top trends to look out for in 2016!

Two-toned Glasses

Two-toned or two-coloured frames really made a big entrance in 2015. Although classic black frames are always a great go-to, colourful frames like these are super fun and unique. There are so many colour combinations to choose from, which means more exciting looks to try! Hanh from Hanhabelle lifestyle blog does a pretty sweet job of showing you how to rock a pair.
