Men's Sunglass Trends 2013

Guest post by Debbie Anderson.

It might be hard to imagine RIGHT NOW (said Superstorm Nemo) but warmer weather is right around the corner (please) and sunglasses will be de rigueur. Some say clothes make the man, and we agree, but we'll add that sunglasses ALSO make the man. Like Jack Nicholson said: “With my sunglasses on, I'm Jack Nicholson. Without them, I'm fat and 60.”

Can't argue with the Nicholson logic. Like he suggests in his trademark snark: sunglasses broadcast your personal style and can even become your signature piece. A nice traditional pair of sunglasses is great, but updating your frames keeps you looking fresh. This year's trends? Retro styles, clean, no-frills frames, and colorful but classic designs. So, if you're looking to change up your sunglass style or just want to know what all the cool kids will be wearing, check out the frame trends for 2013 below.

Persols: always a classic; this time updated with vaguely tortoise frames.
Giorgio Armani
Giorgio Armani's aviators. Still on trend.

Other on-trend designs incorporate round lenses, rectangular frames, and oversized styles. That's a lot of stuff. We say pick one or two trendy updates, and keep the styling minimalist.

Lots to choose from this year, and seems almost anything goes. Just remember: keep it relatively simple and you'll wear 2013's trends well.
