Eye wear isn't just a fashion accessory; it is one of the first things people see when they look at you. Since it is such an integral part of your first impression, why wouldn't you wear a set of frames that have a "wow" factor?! We decided to find out a little bit more from the experts and so we partnered with a fabulous local business:
We sat down with Anthony Bosca, Owner of Invision Distinctive Eyewear, to talk hot eye wear trends for the summer.
Here's what we learned:
1. Chunky, Vintage-Inspired Frames are gracing the faces of fashionistas near and far. However, vintage takes a twist this summer with more open frames that show-off more face. 
   
2. Reflectivity of the lenses are hot with opaque colored mirrors, pulling from the 70s trend, along with more subtle versions called "flash mirrors" with less reflectivity.

3. Bold, Adventurous Colors are gracing the season's hottest frames with patterns of bright colors mixed with traditional, more neutral colors to contrast one another in a harmonious, complimentary blend.
4. Alternative Material such as wood are being used more often to craft frames. This trend gives a natural, more authentic, earthy look to its wearers. 

5. The Aviator isn't a new trend, but instead a more evolving one. Aviators provide a dominant look and come in all sorts of styles that look great on nearly everyone. It's a traditional look and a perennial favorite.
