Winter is finally over, leaving room for spring! You may even have already started to shop for a new spring wardrobe filled with warm-weather clothes! As you know, an outfit is not complete without accessories! The new frame collections are filled with original materials, colours and patterns, which are sure to add an elegant touch to your style. Here are five frame trends that you will find at an IRIS store this spring.

Bright Colours
Have you heard about the colour block trend? It consists of combining clothes with different colours or complementary shades to create a funky look. This spring, the colour block trend also applies to frames! Several spring collections include bicoloured frames, such as this blue and pink frame from Steve Madden. Bright colours are far from being reserved for women this season! Men can also stand out with these daring shades such as forest green and electric blue.

Metal Frames
Yes, metal will once again be important for this spring! With clear lenses, it softens the features, but as sunglasses, it is more of a vintage look. Gold, silver, rose gold ... all metal colours are accepted! This season, designers had fun working the metal in a unique way to add details to the branches, or even reinvent the shapes of the glasses. For example, this Rag & Bone frame definitely stands out with its delicate tips and its mix of gold and black.

Shades of White
This spring shades of creamy-ivory-whites were present on the runways. Eyewear designers have also used this trend on both ophthalmic frames and sunglasses. White frame gives the wearer a sophisticated and unique look. If you have a dark complexion, try this colour for spring: it will suit you perfectly!

Leather Details
Leather as a material,is the pinnacle of versatility, elegance and durability. To our great surprise, this spring, leather has been added as a feature on frames! With the addition of subtle leather details on the branches and bridges, it really transforms the glasses. This beautiful KLiiK frame combines a leather and metal. The result? A retro, refined look!

The collections of many world-renowned designers include lots of patterns this spring! This season, we've seen animal-inspired prints on the catwalks, such as zebra stripes and snake skin. As for eyewear, the patterns can be found in a variety of neutral and vibrant hues.
