2017 Summer Style Guide

Summer is here! Make sure your eyewear is on point this season—browse the summer glasses trends in our 2017 Summer Style Guide!

Sheer, Clear and PINK




Clear frames are still one of the hottest trends of the year. To change things up for the summer, inject some colour for a new twist on a popular look. For sunglasses, try the Justyna or our Reegan frames for everyday wear. Both pairs have pink-tinted clear frames that will ensure you’re the belle of all the summer balls!


If you’re still looking for the perfect pair of clear frames, we’re also offering the Talum glasses, which incorporate sheer frames with a dramatic midnight black contrast on the temples.


Slow and Steady Wins the Race


Tortoise shell frames continue to trend year after year. They’re popular in the summer and winter months—cementing these glasses as true classics. For our 2017 Summer Style Guide, we’re highlighting two of our newest tortoise shell glasses—Xander and Progresso. With two distinct frame shapes, you’ll be able to find the pair that perfectly completes your summer style!


Get Wired

With the shift in trends towards plastic frames, the classic wired-rimmed glasses have fallen out of favour in the last few years…but not in the summer of 2017! This season, people are embracing the classic look of wired-rimmed frames. Included in our summer glasses lineup, we’ve included three pairs of wireframes: Indigo, Brielle and Clarabelle.




This summer, ensure that you have the perfect pair of eyewear to fully celebrate the sunshine and warm weather and let our licensed opticians fit your frames to make sure they are comfortable and secure all summer long!
