5 glasses trends for women in 2021
Do you remember when people with glasses were teased with names like 'four-eyes' or 'nerd'? Fortunately, those times are long gone.
Nowadays, no accessory can better emphasise your personality, fashion sense and facial features than a pair of glasses.
But there are countless trendsetting spectacles. So let's take a look at the glasses trends that really matter in 2021.
What glasses are on trend in 2021?
The 2021 top seller: Metal frame glasses
How about a combination of college student and hipster? Whatever your style, metal framed glasses are all the rage in 2021. However, there is a wide variety of colours and shapes. You want the retro-classic with a wire frame? Then choose a round metal frame, e.g. from Carrera. You want your eyewear to be a little more fashionable? Wear a gold metal cat eye from Vogue, or a metal aviator-style specs from Polaroid.
Trend alert: Rimless and half-rim glasses
With rimless glasses and half-rim glasses, elegance and refined design are the top priorities. By omitting the frame and using extremely thin temples, the eyewear brands in 2021 are reinterpreting an old but proven design. No matter what face shape you have and what type of clothes you wear this year, rimless and half-rim glasses from Max Mara or David Beckham complement your proportions perfectly and blend discreetly with any outfit.

NEW in: Clear frame eyeglasses
An irresistible eyewear trend this year is transparent frame glasses.
Various brands are currently offering this type of frame, adding a subtle, elegant touch to your outfit. If you prefer a discreet look, wear a rectangular transparent frame, for example by Michael Kors, or dare to try a transparent cat-eye frame with a touch of gold by Marc Jacobs.
The eyecatchers: oversized, geometric and tortoiseshell
Just like this year's sunglasses trends, glasses trends feature eye-catching and flashy shapes and colours. Three designs are the most popular: oversized, geometric and tortoiseshell. THESE are the major eyewear trends of 2021, and under no circumstances should you skimp on style and courage. Because – the bigger and more unusual, the better!
Oversized glasses, sometimes also called statement glasses, are typically offered in a trendy cat-eye shape, in crazy colours or with a large frame. Check out the must-have overized models from Moschino. Popular geometric shapes this year are hexagonal or octagonal and are especially dramatic in gold, silver and black. Fashionable brands like Etnia offer all kinds of geometric spectacles.
We don't need to say much about the tortoiseshell pattern, which is a hit in every colour, not only in its original brown. How about a black tortoiseshell frame, neutral colours like white or nude, or tortoiseshell as a print? Here are our recommendations:
Last but not least: Glasses with clear lenses
Glasses do not need to have corrective power. In 2021, their visual power also comes in the form of a fashion statement – with clear lenses and a nice frame. Whatever glasses design fascinates you this year, simply order it with clear lenses!
Simply choose any pair of glasses in our shop, click on 'Select lenses' and select the option 'Clear lens glasses'. How about trying a pair of computer glasses with anti-reflective lenses? These clear lenses are designed to give you extra comfort and protection from harmful blue screen light.
