2020 Eyewear Trends

Let 2020 be the year you try something new with your eyewear. This season, there really is something for everyone. At Adelaide City Optometrist, our experienced team will help you to select a style that not only looks great on you, but is also suitable for your prescription and lifestyle needs. Discover our favourite eyewear trends heading into the 2020 season that we predict will stay around!

70s Inspired

70s inspired eyewear is back and better than ever. Think oversized, square frames in both optical and sunglass styles. Our hot tip? Etnia Barcelona’s Tsim Sha Shui.




Geometrically shaped frames reflect another sense of nostalgia. Whether it be a bold acetate or more simplistic metal, they are a hit for both men and women. Our metal pick is the Teshima by Tarian. This frame screams style, thanks to the extra touch of the double arcade, which creates a clean and pure line. We also love the Downey from Etnia, an oversized acetate frame in a vibrant green. For a more subtle look, but one that is sure not to date, our go to is Cutler and Gross.

Advanced Aviators

Over the years, aviators have diversified from the classic pilot shape. The traditional tear-drop shape is being replaced with a squared one, while acetate frames are becoming increasingly popular. Our very own PASCALI range encompasses this trend and the modern pyramid style of aviator, where the bottom of the frame is slightly wider than the top.



XL Views

In line with the oversized 70s trend, XL frames in general are making a comeback. Lately, we’ve seen more slim frames, but in 2020, expect to see the resurgence of the oversized frame, just like the Etnia Rimini – the bigger the better!



The Double Bridge

Double bridge frames have extreme versatility. They can be found in both metal and acetate materials, both of which ooze style. Sharp lines meet the double bridge in the Carrera 1021/S, where flair is heightened by a tinted pink lens. For a more masculine look, try the Roger Henley 703.


If you’re after something more subtle, a black inlay in a clear frame adds visual interest while keeping it simple. Our pick is the Boheme 1743 or Roger Henley 662.


We are passionate about finding the right frame for you, and we aren’t afraid to have some fun. Discover the Adelaide City Optometrist difference and book a consultation now.
