On that note, here are the top sunglasses trends for 2019.
Tiny rectangle sunglasses
Love it or hate it, tiny rectangle sunglasses are one of the top sunglasses trends for 2019. Why are they still around? Maybe it’s has a throwback vibe? Tiny rectangle sunglasses were very popular in the 90s. Whatever the case, they are here for now.
Tiny cat eye sunglasses
We thought they would die out in 2018, but tiny cat eyes have caught on like wildfire. One of the top sunglasses trends for 2019, they are popular because of how they look. They will not just shade you from the sun, but help counter your face too. As out worldly as they look, tiny cat eye sunglasses are popular with the celebrities.
Retro-futuristic sunglasses a Top Sunglasses Trend For 2019
Retro-futuristic sunglasses are another top sunglasses trends for 2019. It’s popular because it carries a vintage vibe. Also maybe because it looks cool, and give an edge to the nerd in you!
Oversized sunglasses have been highly popular with the ladies, and for obvious reasons—they look great, gives you optimum protection from the sun and adds prominence to your face. Oversized sunglasses also look cool with loose casuals and street attire.
Cat eye sunglasses
We saw a keen interest for Cat eye sunglasses in 2018, and the keenness is still not faded. Cat eye sunglasses are one of the top sunglasses trends for 2019 because they suit most face shapes and they come in an array of colours.
Round sunglasses, another Top Sunglasses Trend For 2019
If people put their money on sunglasses then 8 out of ten times it’s on Round sunglasses. This goes to show how popular this shape is. Probably because the first eyeglasses were round, the most popular eyewear shapes were round, and also, they have been represented well in pop culture. Round sunglasses were popular in 2018 and that tend will be echoed in 2019 too.
Tortoiseshell sunglasses are another burning sunglasses trend in 2019. It’s mainly because of how they appear and how they make you feel. Further, they come in a lot of frame colour options like green, blue, light brown, black, grey… the list is endless. Tortoiseshell sunglasses will have a great run in 2019, for sure.
Where do we start with Pilot sunglasses?

And they accentuate even the simplest of clothes.
Which of these sunglasses trends for 2019 will you rock this year? Let us know in the comments below.
Most people think sunglasses are just accessories, but that’s not it. There is more to sunglasses than what meets the eye!
Further, it’s always important to get to know things that have a personal appeal, and how they affect your look and feel.
On that note, here are a few questions you should ask before buying sunglasses.
How and for what will you use your sunglasses?
This question is vital when buying sunglasses—how and what will you use your sunglasses for? Is it for running, for just for casual use, on the beach, while skiing, driving or hiking. Because every place requires something different.
For instance, if you are visiting the beach, you should have sunglasses that have a wider frame. A wider frame provides more protection for the sun than regular sunglasses.
Likewise, if you are using them while running, your sunglasses have to be light, with curved temples, 100% polarised with polycarbonate lenses.
But whatever you use it for, make sure that they are 100% polarised.
What is the right shape for your face?
This is the second and the most important thing. People don’t bother about their face shape and what sunglasses would match.
There are five basic face shapes:
Round, Oval, Square, Diamond, and Heart-Shaped.
And these are the sunglasses that go well with them.
Heart: Retro square and cat-eye shapes are the ones to pick.
Round: Rectangle and square.
Oval: This face shape can carry almost anything, but oversized frames look particularly great on this face shape.
Square: Round and cat eyes.
Diamond: Oval or cat eyes.
What lens colours should you choose?
You might think that the lens colour is just for cosmetic reasons, but it adds to your vision.
For instance, yellow coloured lenses are great for foggy or low light conditions. Brown lenses are suitable when it’s sunny. And blue lenses are great if you are planning to visit a beach or wherever there's water.
What about frame colour?
This is another aspect people underestimate. Picking your frame colour is important. Choose tortoise frames if you want to highlight your face. Black or crystal coloured frames if you want more of a serious feel. Gold or silver for a carefree appeal.
Also, we reckon you experiment with something new this year.
How is the fit?
Look for sunglasses that fit you well. A pair that comes with a snug fit is better than a loose one.
If you are shopping for sunglasses, try looking for bigger/wider frames
Look for a wider frame, after all the purpose of sunglasses is to shade the sun, and protect your eyes from the sun.
Wider polarised frames provide more protection for the sun.
Are the sunglasses polarised and 100% UV protected?
Yes. This is one of the most vital questions you should ask if you are buying sunglasses. Polarised and 100% UV protected lenses mean they will help protect your eyes for harmful rays for the sun, and also reduce glare coming off reflective surfaces like water or glass.
Should cost be a factor?
Yes, and no! It’s 2018 and good, affordable sunglasses are a thing now! You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get your hands on good sunglasses.
This can also be a question for some, what accessories would you get when you purchase sunglasses?
Replacement, warranty and repairs?
This is another thing to consider. For instance, Glassic’s sunglasses come with a one year warranty and 14-day returns, and more. Don't forget to look for these things when you are thinking of getting a new pair of sunglasses.
What are some of the things you look for while buying sunglasses? Let us know in the comments below.
Oversized sunglasses are in trend, and for obvious reasons. They don’t just have aesthetic appeal, but they come with a technical advantage too. Oversized sunglasses provide more shade from the sun than regular or tiny sunglasses.
Because of the size, they add more prominence to the face too. They also have more chances of suiting more face shapes. Whatever the case, we love them and we would like more people to experiment with these.
With that in mind, here are all the oversized sunglasses from Glassic that you should look at right now.

Tiny sunglasses have more of a love-hate relationship—some think it's cute while some think it's hideous and just a fad. Backtrack to 2017, and some celebrities echoed why they didn’t like tiny sunglasses at all.
Mindy Kaling, for instance, tweeted “I think we will regret this tiny sunglasses look.” Anne Hathaway thought so too.
On the other hand, celebrities like Bella Hadid and Rihanna have embraced Tiny sunglasses. Interesting, enough “tiny sunglasses” finds its inception in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that was filmed in January 2017.
The show sees Kim Kardashian conversing about how her husband Kanye West sent her an e-mail forbidding her from wearing huge sunglasses. (can’t argue with that, she is known for loving chunky, huge sunglasses)
“He sent me like, millions of ’90s photos with tiny little sunglasses,” she enthuses. And that’s how this trend spread like wildfire in 2017—which still burns bright in 2018.
Tiny rectangle sunglasses
Just when you thought you will not get to see any more of that 90s nostalgia, tiny rectangle sunglasses are back. They were in almost every music video of the 90s, remember?
We would also like to make it clear that tiny rectangle sunglasses are not entirely useful for UV protection. People wear them to accentuate their looks and add to their features.
They had the ultimate ‘cool girl vibe’ and they still have that going for them.
And if you are like us and follow trends and every passing fashion fad, we reckon you pick them up. They come with this brooding, noir vibe.
Tiny rectangle sunglasses look particularly great on demins and muted colours.
Tiny cat eye sunglasses
Tiny Cat Eye sunglasses are a fad of 2018 too. We have been seeing a lot of these lately mainly with celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Rihanna and many more. They look notably different and quirky.
Again, they are not for someone who is looking for optimum UV protection because they are not wide enough. But they pair well with various dress types like cool casuals, polka dotted dresses and more.

An Indian wedding dress is another reason why an Indian wedding is so memorable. Yes, we know, Indian weddings are all about music, food, cranky relatives and a lot of selfies. But we also think Indian wedding (or weddings in general) is also revered for its clothes and the accessories that complement them. Case and point Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas!
Maybe this is why we select our wedding dress way before the wedding. Because people see the wedding dress in the pictures, not the food!

As eyewear enthusiasts the thought might have crossed your head: Do Sunglasses Expire? Well, there is no sure proof that sunglasses expire, but they might lose their key functions over time.
In a study conducted by the University of São Paulo, Brazil, they found out that wearing your sunglasses everyday can lower things like the UV protection, and more. But it’s not mentioned anywhere that sunglasses expire. That's not true.
Make sure you take good care of your sunglasses. Scratches and dings on the lenses will affect your vision for sure. Also, it's recommended that you change your sunglasses every year, or at least in two years.
Changing your sunglasses has two advantages—one, you will get to update your style and two, and the most important point, your eyes will be properly protected from the sun (if at all the fiters are damaged)
Here are a few tips you can follow the next time you buy sunglasses:
Remember, not all sunglasses are created equal. Every pair is crafted differently. For instance wider frame give you more protection from the sun than smaller frames.
Make sure you buy sunglasses that are polarised and offer 100% UV protection for superior clarity and comfort.
