Trendy Glasses for Women, Including Travel Enthusiasts

trendy glasses for women

Women’s glasses have changed drastically over the years. In the 1990s all eyewear was about minimalism. Rimless and tiny glasses were the craze 20 years ago and then the early 2000s countered with extremely oversized thick glasses. 

The oversized glasses were meant to make women’s faces look smaller and skinnier. The oversized glasses were fabulous but unfortunately, people also noticed they were exceptionally heavy, and most people couldn’t wear them all day. 

Trendy Glasses for Women in 2024

The good news is that there are trendy frames out there for everyone in 2024. Whether you love bold statement pieces or prefer a more classic look, you’re sure to find something that fits your style. Here’s a closer look at the two major trends in women’s glasses. 

Oversized Metal Framestrendy glasses for women

The hottest new trendy glasses for women are oversized metals with fun bold colors and shapes. Metals tend to sit on the nose more easily than plastic frames. Because the nose pieces are easier to fit, it’s easier to wear oversized metal eyewear. The classic oversized gold frames are popular amongst teenagers. 

Women in the professional workplace are wearing metals with blue, purple, or even yellow outlines. These bold metals range in the shapes of round, modified large cat eyes and even pentagons.

The women who aren’t in a metal frame, are wearing softer, thinner plastic cat eye frames in black, purple or magenta. Also, clear plastic, grey transparent and pink transparent frames are flying off the shelf. All the top designers, Gucci, Dior and Miu Miu are making their version of bold transparent frames. Clear and transparent frames are like the modern version of rimless frames from the 90s.

Trendy Glasses for Women Who Love to Travel

Travel is a chance to broaden your horizons and immerse yourself in new cultures. Your eyewear can be an extension of this adventurous spirit. Here are some tips to consider when choosing glasses for travel:

  • Durability: Opt for frames made from high-quality materials that can withstand being tossed in your bag or backpack. Look for lightweight yet sturdy materials.
  • Versatility: Consider a versatile pair of glasses that can easily transition from sightseeing to a fancy dinner.
  • Sun Protection: Sunglasses are a must-have for any travel wardrobe. Choose a pair with UV protection to shield your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. (See our blog post on Trendy Sunglasses).

Bold-Shaped Frames (Europe & South America)trendy glasses for women who travel

For travel enthusiasts, they like to wear bold-shaped frames with minimal designer logos. Because there are many countries that are notoriously known for pickpockets, you never want to wear anything that draws attention to yourself. When you are wearing eyewear with large logos, it makes you a target in other countries. 

Wearing bold frames with fun colors is extremely common in Europe and South America. If you are wearing bright red frames, while traveling, it doesn’t look flashy or ostentatious. Bold-colored frames make the woman appear stylish and confident.

If you are traveling in Asian countries, they tend to wear more black and gold frames but colorful frames don’t stand out as a gaudy accessory. Sunglasses in Asian countries have extreme shapes that are bold and eye-catching. 

In sum, when traveling, bring bold shapes with minimal logos and feel free to bring all the fun-colored frames you like! Travel is all about showing who you are in a culture that is different from your own. Amazing style translates in every country and every language.
