Look back this Autumn for the eyewear trends that will help you feel fashion forward.
Vintage style is hotter than ever and it’s no wonder when some of the very best design ideas come from our recent past. The 80s, 70s and even the 60s and beyond have provided some of the most iconic and enduring eyewear trends.
Whether you are on the hunt for fashion sunglasses or just want to update your look with an extra pair of frames Rigato have the best retro eyewear around.
Check out some of our favourite retro designs below and find your new season inspiration.
Circular sunglasses as inspired by John Lennon and a host of 60s and 70s stars seem to have a special place in our fashion heart. They have made repeated comebacks over the years and are having a strong resurgence right now. They are perfect for angular face shapes – adding softness and interest. Wear them clear, with coloured glass or wire frames for the most retro take on the look.
The Magnolia X Bronze Gradiant fashion sunglasses have a perfect vintage vibe with bronze and amber tones used to create a tonal finish.
Wayfarers became immensely popular in the 50s and 60s when advances in plastic technology allowed the distinctive moulded frames to be easily manufactured. Buddy Holly was a fan as was JFK, meaning these glasses have seriously cool credentials. Now, wayfarer style glasses are an easy way to add some vintage chic to your look.
Our Havana X line are inspired by the original wayfarer cool and are one of our customer’s favourite Rigato sunglasses. The tortoiseshell frame on this Havana X Tortoiseshell design adds a further layer of vintage styling.
80s Geek Chic
There is no doubt that the 80s was responsible for some horrendous fashion crimes. But for many vintage lovers, what have previously been considered geeky or even ugly 80s glasses are now back in style. For this trend look for oversized frames, coloured plastics, and interesting shapes.
These Cousin Avi X Red Gradient glasses are one of our favourite geek chic inspired fashion sunglasses and are sure to get you all the right kinds of attention.
Aviators came into life way back in the 1930s when they were designed for pilots to use during flights. Since then the aviator has evolved and you can now find them in a range of shapes, styles, and finishes. True aviators are characterised by thin metal frames, dark lenses, and a double or triple bridge design across the nose. The great thing about aviators is the versatility of designs available. You are sure to find a pair that fit your face shape and personal style perfectly.
We love the way the Pablo X Gold Charcoal Gradient takes on the trend, particularly the etched metal frame in vintage gold tones.
