Some people commit to a pair of glasses for months or years at a time to cement their signature look; for others, spectacles are just another fashion accessory to be swapped out on a sartorial whim. Either way, the spring’s sweetest eyewear styles should prove hard to resist.

Trend #1: Metallics

Shiny gold and rose-gold finishes add an edge of glam to the classic wayfarer shape, but matte metallic sheens are just as hot right now—try this look in earthy tones like burgundy and brown.

Ida glasses in matte gold, $345

Lacoste L2216-52 glasses in matte brown, $130

Trend #2: The New Rimless

Forget rectangular and oval lenses: modern manufacturing techniques can now produce rimless looks in a variety of shapes (think cat-eye or even hexagonal!) for an ultra-futuristic look.

Trend #3: Round Lenses

Call it “Harry Potter chic.” Round lenses are back as the pendulum swings away from more angular frames.
