Sophisticated yet elegant, cat-eye frames ensure all eyes stay on you. The refined shape reflects today’s modern woman: cool with a subtle edge. Created in a matte bi-layered material and embellished with a subtle leopard print, these Dolce and Gabbana frames shows off just a hint of your wild side.

Rounded sunglasses are a major trend this year. Top designers such as Gucci, Celine and Tom Ford are going all in with cool expressions and saturated hues. This exaggerated red stunner from Dolce & Gabbana, crafted out of faceted cut acetate, really makes an entrance. The designer keeps it refined with a subtle gold metal bridge and temples.
On-trend tip: Brights are everywhere this season! Show your full-frontal style and pair these frames with shades of red, green or blue or go all black and let your eye(wear) do all the talking!

Oh, These Old Things?

When it comes to men’s eyewear, it’s all about appearing like you didn’t try too hard. For an effortlessly cool look that stands the test of time, choose a pair of classic rounded glasses. These frames from Dolce & Gabbana, available in four vintage-inspired colors (grey, brown, olive green and light brown) and a classic polished black, feature a rounded nose bridge. This modern interpretation of a classic shows a little extra style through subtle gray striations, and is further accented by distinctive rivets on the front and the temples. Never boring, yet always in style.
On-trend tip: Continue with the effortless vibe by opting for a classic bomber jacket or black cashmere sweater. These cool frames accent any classic look and are perfect for an evening out or a tailgate party.

Cool Clip-Ons

These are not your father’s clip ons. Major designers are embracing turning something old into something new, making clip ons cool again. Tom Ford does not disappoint with this chic upgrade. The subtle gold accents give the frame a modern feel while remaining refined. This boss look is further enhanced by a subtle blue gradient lens. You’ll be seeing a lot of these frames come spring from top men’s designers like Penguin, Michael Kors and Ray-Ban.
On-trend tip: Stay cool with jeans and a blazer or go James Dean with a bomber jacket and white T. Either way, these sunnies say a lot about the man behind the shades.

Flashy Frames Aviator

Ray-Ban RB3025 / 112/19 58-14

Ray-Ban, a perennial favorite, is always giving us a fresh take on classics. This time, the brand came out with a hot new approach to the aviator and Millennials are loving it (read: gift idea for your nephew). Dressed up in bright and colorful mirror lenses, the timeless style gets flashier and makes for a perfect accessory for anyone who doesn’t like to go unnoticed.
On-trend tip: Ray-Bans are effortless style, meaning anything goes. Keep it polished with a cool navy suit or go for fun in colored cords this winter.

Butterflies Take Center Stage

Dolce & Gabbana: DG 2143 / Color 488/T3

Dramatize your look with butterfly shaped sunglasses. The luxe gold temples, enhanced by a heavy brow in shiny black, add intrigue to any outfit (and hide tired eyes during an early-morning flight). Polarized grey lenses shield eyes from the sun on even the sunniest of days and subtle pale gold temples keep this on-trend.
On-trend tip: Pair these beauties with your go-to little black dress for an outfit that will turn heads.

Effortless Style

From one of today’s top designers, these classic wayfarers combine an understated glam style with all-American appeal. The soft square frame in shiny black acetate stays classic with a rose gold T embellishment to the temple. Also available in a havana tort, these frames present an elegant attitude for any guy. It’s no wonder they’re a top seller.
On-trend tip: Keep with the elegant vibe by wearing a suit and tie on an opulent date night. Your date won’t be able to look away.
