This autumn/winter’s grungy all-black trend will be very popular with fans of dark, vampy styles. Designers have gone to town with extravagant outfits that prove that all-black doesn’t need to be dull. From lace and velvet to wet-look leather, ruffles and frills, black has never looked so versatile.

These classic, all-black 2376 glasses by Guess feature bold, plastic frames and the Guess designer branding on a subtle silver plaque at the temples.

Plaid, tweed and check fabrics were out in full force at this September’s New York Fashion Week this year.

Designers like Calvin Klein and DKNY showcased plaid’s more feminine side in their latest collections. Gone are tartan’s grunge days, the new grown up plaid is chic and street-ready.

You can accessorise in one of this season’s hottest new trends when you choose the Univo 25 glasses by Party Eyes, priced at just £20 a pair.

Metallic Shimmer

Metallic shimmer was popular on the catwalks during London Fashion Week spring/summer 2016 and has continued to inspire designers for their autumn/winter collections too.

From shiny metallic jackets and trousers to sequin adorned outwear, there has been plenty of shimmer and shine seen during the unveiling of this autumn/winter’s offerings.

These Cora frames by Brink Couture perfectly capture the essence of this trend with their gleaming, metallic, patterned sides


Glasses with bow

Soft, loose bows in a variety of different sizes are popular this autumn/winter. On the catwalks, the most popular way of wearing this trend has been in the form of pussy-bows adorning the necklines of loose, floaty tops and dresses.

This pretty trend has a charming, vintage feel and looks great paired with Victorianesque frills and ruffles.

Add a small and subtle bow detail to your outfit with these flattering, black, Lipsy 20 glasses.

Pale Pink

Rose quartz was named one of Pantone’s two colours of 2016. The powdery shade of pink has been very popular with designers so far this year and looks like it’s here to stay for autumn/winter too.

With its soft, calm and peaceful tones, this particular shade of pink is traditionally a feminine colour but is being seen more and more frequently in men’s fashion too.

Add a touch of serenity to any outfit with a pair of these pink Gabrielle glasses by Urbn West.
