Many trends from 2018 are holding strong through the new year, one of the biggest being the translucent color palettes. Semi-clear greys, pinks, and nudes are still going to be quite popular. Another trend being carried over is the round eye shapes, and double bridge frames. Many designers are leaning towards removing the bottom bar and having only the top bar act as the bridge.
Some new trends we will be seeing this year are:
Slim oval, rectangular, and cat eye frames
Lightly tinted lenses
High-contrast tortoise shell, like the Tokyo tortoise
Bold reds and purples
Oversized square shapes
The Pantone colour of the year is Living Coral so we will start to see that infused into fashion trends in the coming months. Likely it will become a popular lens tint colour.
It seems that many styles this year are reminiscent of a decade passed and may signal upcoming trends for 2020
