In addition to the usual stock of aviators and wayfarers you’d expect to be filling the shops at this time of year, there are three additional noteworthy eyewear trends you should be aware of right now: namely that for oversized and overtly chic and feminine, and also that for futuristic wrap-around styles (epitomised by both Balenciaga and Prada’s recently released, hype-soaked range) – both very much 1990s- and 2000s-inspired.

Whatever style you choose – classic shapes are good too – it’s not always easy picking a new pair of sunglasses, primarily due to the sheer amount of choice on the market. Pile that on top of the breadth of choice in lens strengths, colours and polarisation (glare protection) options and it can all become quite baffling.

Another important thing to consider is face shape. If you want to wear your glasses more than once, it would be smart to consider what actually looks good on you. If you have a square face, for instance, you’ll benefit from the soft curves of rounder frames. Likewise, the angles of a triangular- or heart-shaped face will be accentuated by aviators. Rounder faces? Opt for square or rectangular styles (wayfarers are a good option).

Coach Eyewear
You Can Never Go Wrong with Them

Coach eyewear, much like the brand itself, is easily recognized by its understated simplicity and classic, almost vintage, appeal. Coach is, also, more of a prescription eyewear than sunglasses brand, as proved by the popularity of styles like the BrooklynMontana, and Addison frames. These are all edgy, clean, rectangular frames. They aren’t too big or too bold, making them a perfect choice for those who don’t like to change their eyewear often, which should best the test of time.

The Coach logo

The traditional Coach logo, featuring the carriage and horses, was designed in the 1960s by Bonnie Cashin. It is one the most easily recognized of its kind.

However, nowadays the brand logo more often only features the actual word “Coach” in its own personalized typeface, giving it a more modern look.

Coach is one of the most famous American luxury fashion brands. The New York based brand was founded in 1941 as a small family business specializing in small leather goods.

Their famous leather handbags came in 1946, when Miles Cahn and his wife joined the brand, which they soon took over and later bought, completely revolutionizing its image and products. It was, also, still under Cahn’s ownership that the brand started expanding their product line, including their first eyewear collections.

The brand has since changed ownership and expanded internationally, particularly during the 90s, and is now a multi-billion enterprises, known for their handbags, luggage, fragrances, and watches among other luxury accessories.

Additionally, Coach, also, sponsors charitable causes both through their own Foundation, created to empower women and children worldwide, and other select projects.

Coach Addison

The Coach Addison Eyeglass is the most square and oversized style but has a thinner frame. While not the ideal, this style will work nicely for rounder faces and will do wonders for those with longer faces as the shape helps balance proportions.

Coach Brooklyn

The same could be said about the Coach Brooklyn eyeglasses. However, with their more rectangular, narrower shape and bolder lines, these will, also, be ideal for oval faces. People with oval faces can carry virtually any frame but are more flattered by smaller frames, which won’t hide their beautifully balanced shape.

Coach Montana

As for the classic Coach black Montana glasses, they are, also, a rectangular frame with bold sizes but rimless on the bottom. It is a rare shape for glasses nowadays, so these would be a hit with people who have heart and diamond shaped faces, as the rimless aspect is quite flattering on their prominent cheekbones.

Coach Keri Sunglasses

Contrasting with the prescription glasses, Coach sunglasses are much bolder, featuring thicker frames and more eye-catching shapes. The popular, elegant Coach Keri Sunglasses, for instance, may be black, but they certainly turn heads with their distinctive cat-eyed, butterfly shape. This shape indeed favors heart and squared faced people, as they help counteract their sharpness or imbalanced shape to give it a gentler, attractive look.

In short, Coach eyewear are the perfect choice for most face shapes. They are the ideal option for people who prefer a classic look that can be worn every day and for any occasion. Their understated elegance looks great without drawing undue attention to the wearer.

Coach eyeglasses are a great choice for anyone looking for trusted, high-quality frames as a primary set of frames or as a backup pair. You just can’t go wrong with the Coach line.
