A few weeks ago I went on the hunt for a pair of sunglasses for the summer. I knew that I typically lean towards an oversized look but I wanted to chat with the sales associate and compare my style with what is trending in store this summer. After chatting and trying on a handful of different styles I narrowed it down to these five styles that women’s summer sunglass trends.

5 Women’s Summer Sunglass Trends
I generally steer towards the oversized look. IRIS has a wide selection of frames, but this oversized bohemian style quickly caught my attention. Reflective lenses are also a bold trend for the 2018 Summer season, which you will see in a few of the featured styles below.
Half Framed Sunglasses
Taking it down a notch from the first pair this cat eye stands out because of it’s half bold frame. This popular trends allows you to have a bold look without feeling like it’s too over the top. This style would look great on a narrow face shape.
If you are an aviator loving, the style is not going anywhere this summer! Expect to see a lot of aviators this summer. It could be a classic look that you are used to or this newer aviator style that an IRIS sales associate mentioned was noticeably popular this season.
Big, bold and black
I wouldn’t typically go this bold, but I had to give these thick frames a try. We aren’t just talking large lens that are trending, but thick frames that make a statement on your face.
Coach Round Sunglass Frames
These sunglasses won me over. The classic retro round style of frames are a huge trend this season, even more then I realized at the time of purchasing. The round frames are a perfect way to make a statement with your look without an over-the-top bold frame.
