With the resurgence of retro glasses like Ray-Ban’s Wayfarers, it’s only a matter of time before another blast from the past becomes the hot new look in eyewear. Round retro glasses seems to be making a comeback, especially the 1940s preppy look favored by stars such as Johnny Depp.
Another popular choice is cat-eye. These fetching frames experienced a bit of a resurgence with the ladies in the 90s thanks to singer Lisa Loeb. Maybe this decade will see these retro glasses on the receiving end of a little masculine attention. The heavy- browed, rectangular framed sunglasses popularized in the 60s by Italian filmmaker Frederico Fellini are another good bet to replace the Wayfarers as retro-revival favorites.
