Frame-worthy: 6 Trends in Kids’ Eyeglasses
When it comes to shopping for children’s eyeglasses, it’s a great opportunity to let your child’s personality shine through. Whether they take the colorful and playful route, or opt for more mini-me, vintage-inspired styles, kids usually have an opinion on what suits them best. To help, we’ve rounded up some great frame trends across colors, styles and materials to give you a head start on shopping.
Color Me Happy
In addition to deep hues like blue, plum and burgundy, more gender-neutral color options like reds, teals, and orange frames are also popping up for kids. With Greenery as Pantone’s 2017 color of the year, expect to see it in the mix as well.
Taking a page from the adults, vintage-inspired metal frames with modern details remain a popular trend this fall. Choose from round or angular mini-me styles or try an oval style on for size.
Gone are the days when the temple (or arm) of glasses was an afterthought. It’s now a space for expression, with textured, printed or contrast colors on the arms of the glasses. For a child who wants to play it cool, but with a twist, these styles are a great choice.
While Mom may love her grown up tortoiseshell frames, your pint-sized customer can make a statement with colored tortoise (think pink or blue) or frames with unexpected pops of color sprinkled in the tortoiseshell design. These whimsical details take tortoiseshell from classic to cool for school in a flash.
This adult-like look is great for your budding scholar with a love of all things retro. Keep an eye out for the trendy double brow bar, which you’ll sometimes find in the mini-sized clubmaster styles.
Why choose when you can have it all? Color blocking frame options make a great choice for a two-tone or multi-tone look, either in contrasting solids ora pattern play.
Whatever style they prefer, picking out eyeglass frames can offer your child the chance to express themselves through their eyewear. Check out cohensfashionoptical.com for a list of stores near you, or visit the location at 767 Lexington Avenue to review the best frames for your child.
