We all know that it’s important to protect your eyes, but what few remember is that it is critical to do so even when the weather begins to cool down. For those living in places that get snowy (yes, even during the fall), sunglasses are an absolute necessity! The snow reflects eye-damaging UV rays, and wearing trendy sunglasses can give your eyes some desperately needed protection - while doing so with great style.

Few accessories can reinvent your look as much as a uniquely designed pair of sunglasses; it can change your face, your style and even how you feel. So let’s take a look at the fall/winter 2019-2020 sunglasses trends presented on the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris!

# 1. Connected Shield Lenses

Courageous fashionistas are known to wear these frames. The science-lab–meets–80s-ski-bum shades were all the rage last year, but this year, the frames are even bigger, more innovative and futuristic. These extravagant sunglasses have caught the attention of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian West and Bar Rafaeli,  who have designed their own iterations in collaboration with Vogue Eyewear and Carolina Lemke. Right here, in Portland, you can pop over to The Eye Studio and see how you like our trendy shields.

Get these sunglasses to add an edge to your look, and while you’re at it, why not get some extra protection from the sun!

# 2.  Back to Black

We saw this one coming since all things retro are reigning supreme these days. These extremely notable, skinny sunglasses that remind us of Matrix sunglasses are slim with dark black lenses that completely obscure the eye.

Once adored by supermodels and red carpet regulars, these frames are back. The understated sleek but wearable silhouette has appeared prominently in the fall 2019 runway shows. Take for example Acne Studios, where the models sported rectangular glasses with black lenses, yet had an added subtle element along the top rim. No matter your attire, these shades make for an effortlessly chic look all season long. Visit to see our amazing collection for yourself.

# 3 Full Transparency

Transparent frames and translucent lenses are increasingly popular in the sunglasses market and on fashion runways around the world. They are way more wearable and just perfect for those seeking to pull off that librarian chic look.

Ray Bans offer a whole array of stylish frames and lenses right here in Portland.  Get these avant-garde see-through shades for an extra chic look.

# 4. New Shapes for the Season

This season, designers decided to throw traditional shapes to the wind and play around with new shapes - some of which are impactful without being too dramatic. The new designs include thick-framed sunglasses with a rounded outer shape containing a square inner shape.

The one-of-a-kind Self-Portrait hexagonal glasses have frames made of gold-colored metal, boasting an aviator-style top bar. Unique and daring, these sunglasses are your perfect fall accessory.

Check out some of the best styles you can get your hands on at  The Eye Studio.
