Greetings Eye Candy People,
We just returned from Vision Expo East in New York City this past weekend. That’s THE trade show where high fashion eyewear shops come to see the “latest and greatest” from the world’s finest eyeglass companies. Every company has a different vision which makes each line unique. There’s a style and color for everyone.
If we sum it up in one word we would go with AMAZING. We saw oodles of cool glasses enough to make someone dizzy. But we wanted to take this sensory overload and boil it down into some underlying trends.
Remember a current trend in NYC or Paris might take a year or two to reach the Mid-West. But according to our inside look, here are the Top 5 trends coming down the pike.

Since you clicked on the link, you really want to know... Eye Candy makes it easy and fast with these 5 easy tips.
Tip #1 – Different looks on different days
No single pair of glasses can truly cover all a guy’s needs. We dress different at work than we do at play. For some reason we guys want to wear one pair of glasses all the time. It just isn’t going to get the job done. For those of you with one suit for Weddings AND funerals, glasses are a different ballgame. Choose a “steady eddy” pair for work and another for the weekend. Don’t be afraid to mix things up! Wear the “weekender” on Casual Friday at the office just keep everyone guessing. Don’t be that ONE DIMENTIONAL guy. You’re better than that.
Tip #2 – Occupation influences style
What you do for a living should influence what glasses you choose. The wrong frame can look too casual, too conservative, or too juvenile. Try Lindberg, ÖGA, Robert Marc or SALT if you are in finance, insurance, or technical sales. If you are a creative type look at Matsuda or Face a Face. Engineers and teachers look great in Mykita, Bevel or SALT. If you are over the age of 18, SAY NO to Ray-Bans RX glasses… Period.
