These are the hottest trends spotted at MIDO, the premier eye wear fashion show in Italy

Round is noticeably the favourite shape from designers this year. But don’t worry if round doesn’t suit your face shape; there are plenty of other options for you.

Lots of designers have taken the classic aviator shape and over-sized the design and then added their own unique fashion touches. Favorite colours are gold and rose gold metal.

Metal frames have made a strong comeback – metals alone or metal and acetate (plastic) combinations.
Frames with “floating lenses” where there is a space between the lenses and the frame are also very
popular.

Pastels dominate as a colour choice in the acetate frames, particularly pink. Pastels are also popular as lens colors – pale pink, green and blue predominately.

So have fun, protect your precious eyes and look terrific this season!
