The eyewear trends to keep an eye on in 2023!

The world of fashion is known for its bold statements, cutting-edge ideas and fast-paced culture. From the new-wave fashion that took the 1980s by storm to the corsets and cutouts of 2022, styles are constantly evolving and reimagined. From the catwalk to the streets, it’s exciting watching the latest trends evolve.

Talking of trendy, nothing brings together an outfit quite like a good pair of sunglasses. They are a chance to add a pop of colour, designer style and, most importantly, personality to your wardrobe. Whether you’re a fan of retro chic or futuristic rave shades, there are frames for every taste.

Of course, if you’re anything like us, you’ll already be planning outfits or trying to spot the next trend. But being a fashion guru or trendsetter isn’t easy; if you want to be the next Audrey Hepburn, Tom Cruise or Beyonce, you’ll need a good eye and an awareness of the past, present and future.

If you’re hoping to get a headstart on your summer style, we’ve got you covered. We’re talking Y2K, rave style, oversized visors, cat eye frames and more! Read on to discover our predictions for the hottest shades of 2023.

Oval Frames

First up, we thought we’d kick things off with a classic frame that has made several comebacks over the years. From Kurt Cobain to Bella Hadid, oval shades have earned their place on the faces of many celebs.

Of course, oval shades are by no means a new trend. In fact, they’ve been a favourite among fashionistas and creatives since the 1950s. Whether you're a fan of thin, Matrix-style wireframes, or are looking to make a statement with something a little bolder, you’ll find it here at Ed & Sarna.

Oversized Frames

Next up on our predictions list are old but gold. Oversized frames have been a staple at beaches, catwalks and high-fashion events for decades. This nostalgic look is giving us serious celebrity vibes. Think Pam Grier, Naomi Campbell and Paris Hilton. Whether you’re going for a mysterious feminine look or putting together a larger-than-life festival outfit, a pair of oversized shades are sure to do the trick.

Here at Ed & Sarna, we’ve got a huge selection of unworn vintage shades, so you can stay ahead of the trend with oversized designer sunglasses that won’t break the bank.


Continuing a trend that dominated 2022, sports-style and racing frames are sticking around for 2023, and we can see why! These iconic 80s and 90s designs are sure to bring a burst of energy to any outfit. Take these unique Galitzine frames, with functional hairgrips, and bold black and green colourways. What’s not to love?

It’s likely you’ll have spotted athletic-inspired shades in towns and cities across the UK and abroad last summer and, having made another appearance on the runway in Milan, there’s no doubt they’ll be back again!

Round Sunglasses

Call us crazy, but we’re putting our bets on round frames making a serious comeback in the next year or so. Made famous by the likes of John Lennon and Elton John, these styles are synonymous with counter-cultural movements and free-thinkers. In cities and creative communities across the world, round frames might just become an integral trend in 2023.

From Christian Dior to Hilton Olympia, there are a plethora of quality designer brands to choose between when choosing your new round frame shades. All that is left to decide is what you’ll wear them with!

Ed & Sarna Vintage Eyewear

No matter your style, there’s sure to be a trend you’ll love in 2023. If you’re hoping to be the coolest cat on the beach, or find the perfect accessory for a jaw-dropping outfit, a pair of vintage sunglasses could well be the missing ingredient. Here at Ed & Sarna, we’ve got just the thing.

Be it a sleek pair of tinted Jean Paul Gaultier Cateye frames or a pair of oval Versaces, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in our collection. What’s more, if you’re not sure they’ll fit quite right, you can try a pair on at home and pay nothing for 30 days!
