Color Saturated Lenses
"This trend is probably the biggest on the eyewear market at the moment," the celebrity stylist shared.

Lynne said, "These reflective lenses are fun and cool and right on point."

Modern Aviators Rihanna proved during PFW that she could rock a pair of aviators just as good as Top Gun's Tom Cruise. According to Lynne, frame's like the Work singer's Dior Split 1 aviator, "Never [goes] out of style." She added, "Any face shape can be fitted with a beautiful aviator as long as the shape and size of the sunglass are right for the client."

Zero Base Style Kylie Jenner has been keeping up with one of the newest trends in eyewear with her Dior Abstract glasses. The "flat" style lens gives "the sunglass an ultra modern, almost futuristic appeal," Lynne explained. "They are new to the industry but the trend has become main stream quickly and sky rocketed at warp speed in demand."
