Whether we’re emotionally ready for it or not, the revival of 2000's fashion has begun.

Yep, that’s right–better get ready to relive some of your best ‘what was I thinking?’ moments.

While some of the eyewear trends of the ‘naughties’ can stay well and truly buried (apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur?), one iconic look has returned in full force–the coloured lens.

Donned regularly by the likes of Drew Barrymore and the Olsen twins back in the hey-day, with tones in vibrant red or blue, the tinted lens was hard to ignore.

Rose coloured glasses, anyone?

Fast-forward 18 years, and coloured lenses are back on the catwalk! They were a celebrated summer trend, and don’t seem to be going anywhere soon.

Flaunted on celebrities and style bloggers alike, statement glasses and tinted lenses are a great way to add an additional pop of colour to daily wear.

The fun part is that not only can you buy sunglasses ready with tinted lenses, you can also customise your own pair! Let us help you jazz up your favorite frame- Visit Us in store and we can show you all the different lens tints available!

Photochromatic Coloured Lenses

Offering an equally practical and stylish way to embrace this trend is the Transitions® Style Colours Collection – a new range of bold-coloured lenses that are clear in low light, and come to life in the sun.

Transitions Style Colours are available in four fabulous colours–amethyst, sapphire, emerald and amber–and can be prescription or not! These lenses offer a stylish approach to daily eyewear, and deliver protection from 100% of UV, as well as guarding against potentially harmful blue light. They can also be used with almost any frame, which makes for plenty of choice when designing a pair of glasses that reflect your personal style.

How we're wearing them


If you're not quite ready for all-out colour, opt for something romantic and chic, like rose or peach to see you on trend through the coming cooler months too! Check out the gorgeous Chloe 'Poppy' right for some inspo.

Even better, as Europe swings into full summer-mode, Australia is starting to cool down, meaning softer light. Instead of opting for sunglasses, at Optometrist Parramatta, we're getting our favorite clear glasses lightly tinted.

Our pick?

This look is subtle. Make sure your frame doesn't detract from the feature point- the lens colour! Go with an oversized wire rim frame that's large enough to see the lens graduate from colour to clear, but minimal enough that it doesn't detract from the look.

Calvin Klein 5461

A perfect example? The Calvin Klein double-bridge aviator left, just $289.

We're getting one pair tinted with Hoya's 'Blood Orange' in a 30% graduated tint AND one in Leaf Green- because who can choose just one colour?
