Sunglasses have always played a great role in building up one’s style.

With the sunny season ahead, designers have already revealed their fashion views on spring/summer 2012 eyewear trends, bringing a rich variety of sunglasses, from extremely extravagant and stylish to more traditional and even classic variants. We have summarized the new spring/summer 2012 sunglasses trends into six major categories to let you easily concentrate on what style you’d like to sport in the new season. So here are all the six sunglasses trends:
Cat eye sunglasses have been in vogue already for a couple of seasons and they will still be hot in spring/summer 2012. This type of eyewear comes in various shapes and colors this year and can be very playful or even more austere.

Missoni SS 2012                                                                                                             Tory Burch SS 2012

Sunglasses in quirky shapes are new in fashion, however many designers do their best to quickly popularize them. Think heart, oval or diamond-shaped eyewear this season, if you want to look fresh, innovative and a little bit funny. This type of eyewear is best for attracting massive attention.

Giles SS 2012                                                                                                           Jeremy Scott SS 2012

Round glasses have become classic and they are worn by such big names, as Elton John and Lady Gaga. For spring/summer 2012 round sunglasses don’t come as simple as always. Frames and lens will feature different shades and frames will sometimes even use interesting patterns and will be encrusted with jewels.

Viktor & Rolf SS 2012                                                                                                                        Erdem SS 2012

Sporty sunglasses are perhaps the most practical options and they are always trendy for people, who like to wear sunglasses while doing cycling or running. For spring/summer 2012, expect this trend to be popular not only with sportsmen, but generally with everyone.

Rag & Bone SS 2012                                                                                                                Cynthia Rowley SS 2012

Sunglasses with gradient lens are not that new in fashion and from time to time designers refer to them in their collections. Spring/Summer 2012 is right the time for this style.

ADAM SS 2012                                                                                                               Dolce & Gabbana SS 2012

Contract sunglasses are another gorgeous trend for the upcoming warm season. They are especially good for all those, who like contrasts but feel that color blocking is too much for them. Contract sunglasses look especially creative, when the frame and lens come in different and often quite contrasting shades.
As you can see the Sunglasses Trends Spring/Summer 2012 are really quite varied. So browse through the beautiful sunglasses available, pick your fav and always look fashion-forward!
