Selecting the perfect pair of frames is not just about vision correction; it's a form of self-expression. It's similar to choosing a piece of jewelry or art. The right frames can accentuate your features, showcase your personal style, and bring out a unique part of your personality. Your glasses are an extension of who you are."
- Julie, Optician at Rivertown Eye Care

Winter is here, and it's time to update your eyewear style.

While staying warm and cozy is a top priority during the colder months, it doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. In fact, winter is the perfect time to experiment with trendy eyeglasses that will not only keep you looking fashionable but also protect your eyes from the harsh winter elements. Having the right eyewear is essential for protecting your eyes during winter, from blocking strong UV rays to other seasonal hazards.

"Frames are a great way to update your style, and add dynamic impact to your look," says Holly Forstad, Optical Manager at Rivertown Eye Care. “Our frames have so many colors, patterns, and materials- from bold color blocking to a classic tortoise to sleek titanium- switching your glasses can instantly change the vibe of your style. What goes better with a cozy sweater than a pair of great glasses?”

Here are some must-have eyeglasses fashion trends for this winter.

Bold Frames

One of the biggest eyeglasses fashion trends for this winter is bold frames. Thick, chunky frames in bold colors like red, blue, and tortoiseshell are all on-pointe this season’s best styles.

Red IS the color of 2024! Rivertown Eye Care offers several styles in this powerful hue to help you make your style statement through the lens of eyewear.

These frames make a statement and add a pop of color to any winter outfit. They also provide a bold contrast to the typically muted winter wardrobe. Don't be afraid to go big and bold with your frames this winter.

Round Frames

Round frames are another popular trend for this winter. These frames have a retro feel and add a touch of sophistication to any look. They are also versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Round frames come in a variety of colors and materials, making it easy to find the perfect pair to match your personal style.

Clear Frames

Clear frames have been a popular trend for a few seasons now, and they are still going strong this winter. These frames add a modern and edgy touch to any outfit. They also have the added benefit of being neutral, making them easy to pair with any winter ensemble. Clear frames are a great option for those who want to make a statement without being too bold.

Oversized Frames

Oversized frames are not only trendy but also practical for the winter season. These frames provide extra coverage and protection from the cold winds and snow. They also add a touch of glamour to any look. Oversized frames come in a variety of shapes and styles, so you can find the perfect pair to suit your face shape and personal style.
