The Most Popular Sunglasses Styles For 2011

Author : Stephen Daniels

Some of the most popular eyewear styles for 2011 are actually modernized vintage styles. One example is the Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses first introduced in the 30s and again in the 1986 movie Top Gun, starring Tom Cruise. Another is the Wayfarer (also made by Ray-Ban) that Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's in 1961. Strangely enough, it was in another Tom Cruise movie (Risky Business, 1983) that the Wayfarer was again thrust into the American consciousness and it is still there today.

In fact, movie and pop stars have pretty much been the sunglasses trendsetters through the years. A long running ad campaign for Foster Grant debuted in the 60s with the tagline, "Who's that behind those Foster Grants?Today's designs often add fun and style into the mix. The Teashades of the 60s were considered hippie attire. Granny glasses were similar to the teashades, but were rectangle in shape and came in various colors - considered a fashion statement at the time.

In the 80s, Jackie Onassis and her oversized "Jackie Os" evolved into the disguise of choice for movie stars trying to dodge the paparazzi.

An entirely different flavor of eye shade is the Shutter, which first flashed on the scene in the 80s and was reintroduced by a recent Kanye West video. Featuring "shutters" in place of lenses, this fashion accessory is a favorite of the Hip Hop set and Paris Hilton, but probably not the most practical for true sun protection.

Manufacturers, wholesale distributors, retailers and their customers look to the world of wholesale designer sunglasses for tips on what's hot. For 2011 here's what the trend spotters are forecasting:

* The Aviators are still at the top of the heap. The addition of gold guilded lenses will add even more panache.

* The Tattoo, with little tattoos on the "arms" of the sunglasses

* Plastic wrap styles will be popular with men. A lighter, rimless version will be preferred by some.

* The latest Wayfarer, the White on Black, will be a summer hit.

Sunglasses made by famous designers can sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars. This luxury pricing is due to the value of the designers' brands and by artistic embellishments, such as sparkly crystals or even gem stones. Still, a knowledgeable buyer can get a similar look by purchasing good quality replicas of the hot trends. Of course, in a pinch, inexpensive knockoffs can also be picked up at the local mall, drug store or even gas station for $10-$20. But always be sure to look for full UV protection when you are purchasing lower cost shades.

Protecting the eyes from UV rays is important for vision preservation. In 2011, experts are forecasting the following trends.
