Vintage styles come back in a refined, upcycled form into fashion every season and Spring-Summer 2017 is all about grandma-chic. This time around though, we’re talking about the good ol’ Granny Glasses. These oversized wiry or clear plastic frames have taken over the fashion world by storm. Whether it’s A-list celebrities or the fashion elite, we’ve seen a number of people sporting this trend.

Throwing on a pair of Granny Glasses can make anyone look cooler and quirkier in an instant, regardless of what you’re actually wearing. And mind you, these glasses can be paired with almost anything and everything. There is no particular ‘look’ that suits the trend, in fact these glasses give a whole new, cooler spin to your entire ensemble.
Gucci Reinvents Granny Glasses
The epidemic began on the ramps of Milan fashion week back in 2015. Gucci’s wildly eccentric creative director Alessandro Michele brought with him a fresh take on vintage fashion with oodles of colour, prints and grandma-chic glasses. Many have referred to this collection as a gorgeous chaos of old and young, and we can’t seem to agree more. Gucci’s SS 16 collection is still revered and thanks to which, 2017 has been swamped with these granny glasses.
So ladies, it’s time to steal a few style tips from your Nana!
4 Things To Keep In Mind:
- Remember: Choose an oversized frame that is right for your face shape.
- Don’t be afraid to experiment with embellishments around the rims of your glasses.
- Avoid over accessorising as you don’t want to take the attention away from these glasses.
- Granny glasses come in all sorts of shapes and sizes; round shaped or aviator frames don’t define the trend.
