WHO: For those who love surprises, always spice things up, and embrace the unexpected.

WHAT: Frames with an unexpected pop of color—on the fronts, temples, or even the inside—that make eyewear as much of a statement piece as the highest of fashion.

WEAR: (Top to Bottom): From L’Amy America’s Nicole Miller Resort Collection, style Eden Roc features pops of color both on the frame front and on the temples, where gold studding catches the eye. The style worn by Miller herself, the Eden Roc offers a bright, exciting mix on a traditional tortoise coloration. From Luxottica’s Prada, style 61XS features enamel inserts that bring a bold pop of color to the geometric front, creating a futuristic, art pop style that surprises from every angle. From SD Optical, Rip Curl style 2013 offers a sportier take on the trend, flashing a bright orange pop on the temple tips and on the inside of the frame. Inspired by the brand’s surf-lifestyle, this Rip Curl style shows the power of eyewear trends to reach across fashion, sport and lifestyle. Finally, from ic! berlin, style Sahel contrasts its bright red top with the rest of the frame’s subtle metal, creating a look as edgy and exciting as the city the brand is named for.

WHY: Intentional and exciting pops of color help elevate a frame from just fine to fashion forward, demanding a second look wherever you wear them.
