Spring Clean Your Style Wardrobe With These 5 New Eyewear Looks

If you’re obsessed with accessorizing and are always looking for ways to revamp your style, this guide is for you! As days get warmer and we head towards summer and the Christmas season, treat yourself to a new pair of sunnies or specs to keep you on-trend and your peeps protected.

A look at the eyewear trends straight from the catwalks this year sees a shift from slim & less protective styles to larger, more shielding ones. This year, we’re seeing a return to well-known, forever favourites like aviators, cat-eyes, and other traditional oversized shapes. Each of these styles can be easily integrated into your wardrobe to refresh your look even without changing your clothing. Read on for our top picks this Spring.

Shield Sunglasses:

Shield sunglasses aren’t going anywhere in a notable nod to the current state of the world right now with the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re seeing brands favouring an oversized and crossover lens design, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Lopez rocking the style too. We love this trend for it’s modern design while also providing full-range eye protection- making it indispensable for optimal eye care and great style.

Try the look with these trendy Moschino sunglasses to keep you looking chic and protect your vision from harmful UV rays. The design is streamlined to look both edgy and slightly sporty, making it a versatile style choice for any season. A really cool feature is that these sunglasses are wraparound and not bi-framed, meaning you get seamless coverage from the front and sides, hence your eyes aren’t distracted by separating one lens from another. Try them by shopping at Vision Direct, for a 24-month warranty and free shipping!

Oversized Sunglasses

Keeping in line with the shield trend, we’re seeing a return to the always stylish oversized sunnies look. You can never go wrong with a pair of Gucci's oversized sunglasses and available in a range of colours, we love this nude-baby pink version for Spring!

Try the look with a pair of Gucci oversized baby pink sunglasses with the embellished Gucci logo on the arms. These sunnies scream standout luxury and spring vibes thanks to their soft pastel frame and light lenses. Even better, they’ll comfortably see you into the summer season too!


Aviators are an essential accessory for everyone’s wardrobe. An enduring classic, we continually see brands put their own spin on this style and this year, there was a trend for aviator sunglasses in vibrant shades of pink or purple.

We are pretty obsessed with these ivory white sunnies from local Australian brand Quay Australia. The sunnies are ultra feminine with cat eye frames and the ivory will pair well with most skin shades as it’s not a stark white. The multi-coloured pink lenses bring more fun to the style and will easily see you through the rest of the year into 2021. These sunnies are perfect for adding angles and dimension to the face and are ideal for those with a round or oval face.

Ready to try something new this season? Have fun playing with your style and don’t forget you can try on any of the sunnies seen here from home with the help of Vision Direct’s online try-on tool. If you’re looking to add a prescription to your shades but can’t remember the details, you can easily retrieve them with the Lens Scanner app. Updating your style with the help of a fashionable new accessory has never been so easy!
