AW14 Trend: Colour Punch

The first women’s winter eyewear trend we’re taking a closer look at over the next fortnight is Colour Punch. Inspired by Sydney’s vibrant Vivid light festival across the pond, this trend is all about brightening up your winter wardrobe with frames in bold and uplifting hues.

VIVID Sydney

Once a year Sydney is lit up in an array of extraordinary lights during the Vivid light festival, most notably including projections across the sails of the Opera House. This year’s festival kicks off today and the Aussie Clearly team will be heading down this weekend to take snaps ready for a write-up next week. Keep an eye out for our exclusive Vivid Sydney review on theLOOK!

Taking inspiration from Sydney’s dazzling annual event, we’ve put together a colourful collection of glasses to ensure you look just as dazzling this season. Plus, let’s face it – us Kiwis aren’t huge fans of the winter months. So, this trend is all about going against the grain and keeping a summer vibe all year round! Here are some of our top picks from the vibrant trend…


Frame Style: Evergreen 6016 in Purple


The colour blend on these Evergreen glasses provides a stylish yet subtle feel, with the gradient paring back what otherwise would be a very vivid block colour. Team with shades such as blood orange or duck egg to create a stylish contrast, perfect for completing your ‘Colour Punch’ look.

 Frame Style: Lacoste L2503 250 in Amber

Lacoste glasses


Freshen up your look this winter by opting for this  zesty pair of Lacoste glasses. Whether you team them with a tailored overcoat in navy for your commute to work or a mahogany knit at the weekend, this must-have style of glasses will make the perfect addition to your autumn/winter collection.

 Frame Style: Derek Cardigan 7009 in Fuchsia

Derek Cardigan

Finally, this awesome style of specs in fuchsia by our exclusive brand Derek Cardigan perfectly epitomises what the Colour Punch trend is all about. These glasses will look fab worn with a tee in another bright block colour, acid-wash denim jeans and a biker jacket. Effortless winter cool.
