New Year, New Frames!  2018 is looking like yet another stylish year for Uptown Eyes, as we have so many beautiful frames in stock and I just needed to share my current faves with you. Enjoy!

Matsuda Sunglasses

First up, Matsuda—a standing favorite line with our clients—with the newest version of their ultra-round aviators. A sleek silhouetted frame with the perfect amount of flash and exquisite hand-engraved details (photos don’t do it justice!). You simply couldn’t ask for more in luxury eyewear! Brushed gold titanium double-bar aviator with gradient lenses plus a gold flash mirror finish, encased in lacquered rim. Five other color options currently available. Even your doctor loves this one—think of all that UV coverage!

Andy Wolf Optical

This one is probably my consistent favorite from 2017 that is STILL going strong in 2018. Andy Wolf is known for giving us unique and interesting shapes of frames with a hint of a retro vibe. This reversed half-rim mixed material intense butterfly lens frame with soft pearl iridescent sparkle is literally bewitching! Every time I walk past it, I have to try it on. This kooky frame is currently available in 7 other colors, but my favorite is definitely the one that sparkles! We can definitely look forward to more styles like this in 2018—Uptown Eyes is ready for some new adventurous eye wear, are you?

Oliver Peoples Optical – Ryce

So, most of my peers know that I don’t typically lean towards “safe” frames for eyewear, I usually love something with a little je ne sais quoi. However, this deceivingly stylish glossy black acetate frame definitely defies the “safe” style trope that plagues the lovers of “basic rectangular” frames. Chunky styles are very on trend in 2018, not for the shy and flattering on most face shapes—Nerdy chic! This one can definitely go from that work meeting to the theater after dinner. With transition lenses in them, they’d even make stellar sunglasses! Who doesn’t love versatility?

Tom Ford Optical – 5421 074

Last, but certainly not least, Tom Ford’s “millennial pink” cat eye contoured frame with pink Havana tortoise temples; classic rose gold  ‘T’ detailing in the designer’s iconic fashion line. This frame at first glance is unassuming, but upon further inspection and the real double-take, Tom Ford achieved femininity and edginess in one frame. Don’t fear the pale pink—it’s a very underrated neutral that compliments nearly every skin tone, this one is not to be missed!

I certainly hope you enjoyed learning about my favorite styles this month! I very much look forward to the incredible inventory future at Uptown Eyes in the coming months. Without fail, I’m sure our optical team will find the most amazing eye wear for you in 2018, so be sure to drop by and find your own SPECtacular frame!
