Our top 3 women’s eyewear picks for AW21

Updated: Jan 4, 2022

The fall fashion season is in full swing, and the runways are filled with stunning new eyewear from your favourite designers.

This year, the focus for women’s glasses is on earthy, understated tones, capturing a return to simplicity and clean lines. Don’t let this return to minimalism fool you, though. AW21’s styles are still devoted to even the smallest details, with many stunning accents that will complete your look. Many collections also feature a retro vibe, with looks that take inspiration from the 70s and 80s.

So, as you begin to assemble your autumn and winter wardrobe, here are our top women’s eyewear picks that we think will become quick favourites in your collection.

Nine West

For nearly 40 years, women have trusted Nine West to offer the latest looks in fashion and accessories. Today fashionistas still choose Nine West when looking for styles that are modern and bespoke to clients' individual tastes. The brand is renowned for its avant garde looks and attention to detail. It is also one of the few eyewear brands to offer petite sizes in eyewear for smaller faces.

The most recent Nine West glasses collection is hailed as a reflection of ‘timeless femininity’ that captures the latest trends while still being wearable. These frames easily pair with other women’s Nine West accessories, as many are a reinterpretation of their most loved designs.

Nine West glasses are flexible and lightweight, featuring popular shapes like as cat-eye, wayfarer, and classic round frames. Adaptable to all prescriptions, these women’s glasses are a versatile and fashionable choice for anyone who is looking for frames that makes a statement.

Kate Spade

We are proud to be one of the go-to optical stores for Kate Spade glasses and sunglasses in Canada. A modern legacy brand, Kate Spade has been adorning women in colourful and sophisticated fashion and accessories for close to 30 years now, taking inspiration from the classic looks of the 1950s and 1960s, and putting a fun and contemporary twist on them.

Kate Spade doesn’t just follow the trends, it creates them with frames that capture the true goal of fashion - self-expression. This year is no exception with a collection that take inspiration from some of the most popular eyewear styles.

Fall/Winter 2021 includes a collection of retro-inspired frames from oversized styles to sleek aviators. Many pieces also feature Kate Spade’s trademark sparkling details meaning there is a pair or two…. or even three for every colourful adventure.

Among the most popular designs are our gradient acetate and stainless-steel models that allow wearers to create looks that are both feminine and flawless. We think you’ll also love the oversized, Audrey Hepburn-inspired glasses frames that let you enjoy a taste of the early morning Manhattan lifestyle.


One of the most popular luxury brands in the industry, Chloe remains a favourite of fashion-conscious women who want to blend refinement with luminous grace. This year’s Chloe glasses frames collection “exudes grace and attitude”, with a focus on elevating the Maison’s vision of modern femininity.

You’ll find frames that feature warm tones paired with vivid accents, and gradient lenses for sunglasses that give off a 70s vixen vibe, while fine details and crafted embellishments add a pop of glamour. With round metal styles with petal-like details and sleek octagon frames that highlight this brand’s expert craftsmanship in mixing metals, this collection is perfect for the woman who wants to take her eyewear wardrobe up a notch this season.
