2019’s Winter Sunglasses Trends Are A Subtle Twist On Timeless Styles


Unless you’re planning a vacation to a tropic destination, you’re probably not getting nearly as much sun this winter as you would during the warmer months of the year. All things considered, that doesn’t mean you won’t get your fair share. Sure, sunglasses are typically associated with lounging in the sun while wearing a chic swimsuit, but if the modern ways of fashion have told us anything, some things can be worn without a particular season in mind. So, if you’re planning to wear a pair of shades for the next few months, there are a handful of winter sunglasses trends to keep on your radar.

Not only are sunglasses a practical accessory to have on hand — especially when you’re facing the bright and sunny winter wonderlands — they’ll also be the perfect addition to any outfit, making your ensembles that much more elevated. From classic black and forest green hues to bright and colorful tinted lenses, there’s a chic trend that will go with anyone’s personal style.

To give yourself a head start on building up your collection for the sunny days of winter (as well as those of the seasons following), scroll down to see the coolest sunglasses trends to start wearing now.

Forest Green

As a softer version of classic black sunglasses, dark green sunglasses offer the same amount of tint without feeling too harsh, and provide a cool, subtle color to an otherwise neutral look. Plus, they have a slightly retro feel to them, which is always welcomed.

These sunglasses combine two classic trends to create an unexpected look for the season.

Tinted Lenses

Though the rise of colored lenses came through last summer, the vibrant trend has come back for another round. Style these with your ensembles to give them an extra pop of color, or to simply brighten up your day.

Between the pink tinted lenses and the marbled acetate frames, you're bound to get endless compliments on these sunglasses.

These tortoiseshell frames are classic, while also having the blue lenses to keep them modern.


Maybe it’s due to the trend of slick black coats reminiscent of The Matrix, but sleek, jet-black sunglasses have been popping up everywhere. If there’s one trend to invest in this winter, it’s this one, due to its versatility and timeless appeal.

A popular choice among fashion girls, these classic sunglasses will feel classic and modern all at once.

The studded detail along the arms of these sunglasses make them more than your standard black pair.

Cat Eye

Don’t be mistaken: Cat eyes are a classic. However, they’ve taken on a new approach with bolder, more pointed shapes this season. For an effortlessly sophisticated look, be sure to wear these.

Leave it to Céline to create beautiful, chic, and feminine sunglasses like this red pair.

Round Frames

Perhaps it’s a reaction to the hyper-structured, architectural sunglasses that have been making waves over the past 12 months, but retro-inspired round frames have been catching the eyes of fashion editors and It girls alike.

A pair of round, oversized sunglasses will easily make a statement — especially with metal details like the wires around the lenses.

Without a doubt, you'll be channeling classic rock stars every time you wear these tinted sunglasses.

Oversized Fit

While the smaller frames reigned supreme last season as one of the most popular sunglasses trends, their oversized counterpart is coming back with a triumphant return.

With a barely-there tint, these oversized sunglasses are perfect for the winter season.

With their oversized fit and warmer hues, these are perfect for anything from running errands to enjoying in the sunlight outside a cafe for brunch.
