Spring/Summer Trends in Sunglasses and Eyeglasses

Celebrity Trends Drive Sales

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 7, 2007 -- Celebrity fashionistas from coast to coast have always set the bar high when it comes to fashion, and now everyone is trying to get their hands on the seasons' most fierce designer sunglasses (http://www.glassesetc.com) from companies like Rayban, Oliver Peoples, Marc Jacobs and Prada eyewear. Hot Hollywood celebrities have made designer eyewear and sunglasses the mandatory item for their fabulous wardrobe. GlassesEtc.com has witnessed quite a spike in summer sales due to celebrities wearing designer shades.

This past summer the latest trend in designer sunglasses has been the Wayfarer Rayban sunglasses. Many of the A-list movie stars like Nicole Richie, Joel Madden, Hayden Panettiere, Kirsten Dunst and Kate Moss have been seen wearing them from New York to L.A to Miami.

Let's have a peak at how some of Hollywood's hottest starlets accessorized with their designer sunglasses this summer...

L.A.'s newest resident, Victoria Beckham, steps on the scene looking fierce and steals the show so gracefully in a sexy, sleek pencil-cut dress in nude. With the perfect Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses (http://www.glassesetc.com/dg-6018b.html) (model D&G 6018b) in a brown tint, she is ready for yet another fabulous VIP night on the town.

The always effortlessly chic Kate Moss has paired these must have Wayfarers Rayban sunglasses (http://www.glassesetc.com/orwa.html) with a cozy loose fitting smock while roaming the streets of New York while the ever eccentric Kirsten Dunst combines hers with an L.A. style punk ensemble of high-waist pants and a casual white tee.

Beautiful and loving Cameron Diaz picked up a pair of these Pamela Juicy Couture eyewear (http://www.glassesetc.com/pamela.html) while roaming a gifting suite in L.A. The rectangle frame compliments her heart shaped face. The red is perfect with her rust-colored peasant top, completing her casual summer look.

And always camera ready, effervescent Eva Longoria is looking far from desperate as she works the red carpet at an L.A. premier. She is seen pairing a cropped-fitted jacket and suspenders with Fendi designer sunglasses accented with belt-buckle detailed sides to create her ultimate casual-chic ensemble.

Finally, the always unpredictable Britney Spears frolics at a beach in Malibu - the official getaway for the Hollywood elite this summer. Spears donned these Marc Jacob eye frames (http://www.glassesetc.com/marcjacobs43s.html) complemented by sleek silver side detail with a casual pink bandana and tank top.

"Movie stars love to accessorize their designer clothing with their designer eyewear. Owning multiple frames from the top fashion designers like Oliver Peoples sunglasses or Gucci eyewear is a must for all the celebrities now. Even prescription designer eyeglasses are becoming very popular," explains Brian Jones, Merchandising Manager of the online store, GlassesEtc.com which resells a wide range of discounted designer sunglasses including designer prescription eyeglasses.

GlassesEtc.com Sees Strong Sales For The James Bond Glasses by Tom Ford

James Bond 007 Wears Tom Ford 108 Sunglasses

Los Angeles, CA, November 13, 2008 --(PR.com)--

James Bond 007 is the epitome of cool, always enjoying the finer things in life from suits to the latest gadgets but what is hard to miss in the latest Bond film "James Bond 007 Quantum of Solace" are his Limited Edition Tom Ford James Bond 007 TF108 (http://www.glassesetc.com/tomford108.html) shades; These exclusive Bond sunglasses now available at GlassesEtc.com.

These limited edition shades aren't just cool they are Bond cool. Classically designed, but yet sleek and modern; featuring rich accents such as leather temple tips. The Tom Ford James Bond 007 TF 108(http://www.glassesetc.com/tomford108.html) comes with Tom Ford box, hard case, cleaning cloth, and liquid cleaner.

Whether for a gift or for you, the Tom Ford James Bond 007 TF108 sunglasses are sure to be a hit.

Now available at GlassesEtc.com but better act quickly as this limited edition item is in extremely high demand and quantity is very limited.

Even if you don't identify them from the film, you'll still recognize them for their iconic style. That's because Tom Ford's James Bond 007 Sunglasses provide that rare mixture of modern-day suave and legendary class. Yes, of all the sunglasses that could have been assigned to the swaggering spy, James Bond chose these refined aviators from Tom Ford. It's a brilliant move that masterminds just how fitting -- and relevant -- traditional style elements can be. With their chrome frames and gray-tinted lenses, the 007 Tom Ford 108 Sunglasses successfully capture the sophisticated reserve always ascribed to the super-agent. They're shades that, like James Bond himself, need no introduction.

And more often than not, big-screen style is only in the movies. The high-profile wardrobes and accessories that we see on film are never accessible to the masses. In many ways, it isn't fair because we covet what we see -- but this time, things are different. James Bond has hot women and debonair style, and we can finally have one piece of the action (even if it's the less desirable piece). The fact alone that Daniel Craig wears these in the newest Bond makes Tom Ford's 108 Sunglasses one of the most singular sets of shades around. And their genuine cinematic pedigree aside, they also have stellar style that you don't see every day. The chrome-colored rims look affluently sleek, while the more substantial bridge suavely differentiates. As long as every guy around doesn't go clamoring for these re-envisioned aviators, you'll finally have the distinctive star-powered style you've always dreamed of.

007 could have his pick of sunglasses (www.glassesetc.com). He could choose highly stylized, intricately designed or even gadget-laden styles. Fortunately, though, the James Bond of today has a grittier, less campy style, which is why he ends up donning a classic pair of re-interpreted aviators instead. Aviators have long been representative of a tough, almost arrogant image, and they maintain their conceit as the shades of choice for the world's most fashionable and womanizing spy; the chrome frames and dark-gray lenses make these shades charming, sleek and supercilious all at once. They give the wearer a look that's equal parts dapper and defiant. Both aviators and Bond have reputations that precede them, and in Tom Ford's 007 Sunglasses, the two work maniacally together to create style that won't soon be outmoded.

Fashionable Eyewear - The Ultimate Holiday Accessory

New York Stylist Offers Advice on Making a Statement with Your Eyewear

PINELLAS PARK, Fla., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Trendsetters are gearing up for the holiday season, scouring retail stores for the latest accessories to dress up their wardrobes. Accessorizing your overall look this fall with fashionable eyewear can help you stand out and will also provide you with the benefit of eye health and wellness.

According to New York stylist and optician Matthew Sakolsky of famed Morgenthal-Frederics in Manhattan, eyewear has replaced the handbag as the stylish accessory that makes the most personal statement of self expression. Runway models and celebrities are gracing the pages of the hottest fashion magazines sporting eyewear that makes bold statements about their personalities.

Sakolsky adds "Eyewear is much more than a fashion statement; it's the ultimate functional accessory." Proper lenses can also protect your eyes against harmful, year-round ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.

"Eyewear should be seasonal, practical and functional, and should offer protection from UV rays to help prevent long-term damage to the eyes," he added. "Fitting your eyeglasses with photochromic lenses, such as Transitions(R) lenses, allows you to be conscious of both fashion and healthy sight. Transitions lenses can be fitted with virtually any frame and are offered in the widest range of lens materials and designs."

Clear indoors and at night, Transitions lenses automatically become sunglass-dark outdoors to block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays and help to reduce painful glare.

According to Sakolsky, prescription eyeglass wearers who choose photochromic lenses have the best of both worlds -- convenience and comfort, while avoiding having to switch between everyday and sun lenses.

Fashionistas, celebrities and New Yorkers of all types have come to rely on Sakolsky's advice. He offers the following tips for selecting this holiday season's hottest accessory:

* Take risks with shapes; don't limit your choices. As long as you feel comfortable when wearing your frames, you have selected the perfect frames for you. o Notable shapes for this holiday season include the "nerd" and 1950's retro style o The "nerd" look is especially grate for men, while the oversized retro style will work for virtually every woman who wants to make a bold statement

* Select bold colors. Frames come in so many fabulous colors. If you wear glasses everyday, consider investing in a second pair with a more distinctive color to change your look. o Colorful eyewear is great for women as it can make you appear as though you're wearing make-up when you are not o Gold and shades of green are all the rage this season

* Think fashion and function; make your eyewear work harder for you today and tomorrow. o Picking the perfect frame is important, but it's equally important to ensure that your eyewear offers proper protection o The eyes and the sensitive skin around them that is so prone to premature aging and long-term damage can be protected; select UV blocking lenses, like Transitions lenses that provide convenient automatic protection from the sun's damaging rays and help ensure lifelong healthy sight

Spring/Summer Trends in Sunglasses and Eyeglasses

We reached our saturation point with sunglass and eyeglass trends seasons ago, and alas, nothing looks fresh or interesting to our weary eyes. With so many options in sunglasses and eyeglasses history past, the 2009 spring/summer season will be no different in difficulty of choosing the right style that we know will be worth our shopping needs! Nowadays there doesn't seem to be one direction to follow in terms of picking frames, so looking to the trendiest set may not be the way to go this spring/summer season. It seems it's an everything goes season, which can very much be a good thing for those on a budget! By glancing over what other stylists and trendsetters are discovering, choosing to be bold with oversized rounds or shields is going to be just as effective this season as choosing a classic retro look or aviator. Your best bets for spring and summer are the ever so cool Ray Ban. This brand has staying power with their popular retro looks and strong frames that are appealing for men and women alike.

When this season approaches consider creative ways to mix up your style. Shades of grey are becoming more popular than browns as the neutrals of choice. Jewels tones are a stunning addition to any spring/summer wardrobe. Details are popping up in more unexpected places. Look to the temples for beads, rhinestones, and diamonds. And don't be afraid of those rich colors like raspberry and purple, these colors are available in varying shades that can be found to match any skin tone.

Looking at the big and bold frames can be daunting, but those frames give individuality and lots of attitude to one's style. Don't be afraid to try angular shapes, modern patterns, or the avant garde (whatever you think that may be).

Whatever your choice for new frames to sport this spring/summer season, let your individuality shine through and do not be timid in style, color, design, patterns, and brand. Try something new and fresh and you may discover something unique about yourself!
