Upgrade Your Stylish Sight at Overland Optical Family Eye Care

The sun is glaring, and you need to keep your summer sight clear! Sunglasses sharpen your outdoor vision and the face you show to the world. At Overland Optical Family Eye Care, we’ve put together a striking collection of stylish sunglasses in our Overland, Missouri, optical store. Take a look at what’s trending this year!

There’s a range of innovative sunglasses frames on the runways and display shelves – in classic, creative, and sporty designs. Look through our, sunglasses selection to pick your pairs from the most popular sunglasses silhouettes for 2019, such as:

Shield Protection

Shield frames, which first made an appearance last summer, are still in full force. Shield sunglasses are constructed from one large piece of transparent UV-blocking material that covers the bridge of your nose and both eyes. They are not bi-framed like most eyeglasses designs, and flat-topped versions are common. The benefits? Not only do these large, futuristic sunglasses make a bold statement, the expansive shapes also maximize protection for your eye health. To see some fabulous examples, check out the new fashion lines of shield sunglasses developed by Gigi Hadid with Vogue, and Kim Kardashian West with Carolina Lemke.

The cat’s meow

Classic cat-eye sunglasses have been revamped for this summer, with attractive cut-outs, wing-shapes, and bright patterns. As demonstrated by Miranda Kerr, these feminine feline frames add sophisticated elegance to every look.

Micro and ultra-skinny frames

Although the majority of 2019 sunglasses styles tend towards oversized, the other extreme of pint-sized is also taking the spotlight – as seen on Bella Hadid, queen of micro eyewear. Horizontally slim lenses, which have a sophisticated, futuristic effect, are available in rectangular and triangular designs. Tiny sunglasses come in a variety of creative shapes, from double-wings to miniature diamonds.

Circles and squares

Elementary shapes never go out of style. Simple, yet sleek squares remain all the rage, along with timeless round shades made from a mix of contemporary materials and colors to coordinate with every outfit.

Heart-shaped eyes

Designers all over the world have fallen in love with supremely feminine heart-shaped lenses. You can find them in pretty palettes to enhance the aesthetics of every expression.

Oversize retro – in new shapes

Eyewear designers have updated oversized sunglasses with inventive contours and colors. Matte and gradient acetates are a favorite, as well as bold new color tones. Large transparent frames fit with translucent lenses are also featured in all the hues of the rainbow. Look to Olivia Palermo for a fabulous image of how oversized sunglasses can enlarge and maximize your style.

Sparkle and glam

Many high-end sunglasses for summer 2019 are adorned with extra bling. Jewel-encrusted sunglasses and gleaming gold frames have made an appearance, along with glittering chains hanging down from the lower frames, and pearls and jewels on the temples.

Patterns and colors that pop

Funky patterns and prints are showing up on all shapes and sizes of sunglasses, from Moschino’s scribble patterns to Fendi’s black and whitle polka dotted frames. Another blazing addition to this summer’s hottest sunwear styles is the color red – for the frames and the lenses. Versace released bright red triangular sunglasses, and Salvatore Ferragamo attracted attention by pairing black lenses with cherry-red shapes.  And of course, one of the boldest and beautiful non-color of all time is white, a sunglasses favorite of Beyonce.
