Colorful is not enough to describe the trend we are going to present now. In fact, what makes this trend so unique is the difference of tones selected for each glass out of the two. To put the thing more clearly we may discuss the example of red and blue glasses for the same white-framed sunglasses by Rebecca Minkoff, in case of which the resemblance of these pieces with the traditional 3D glasses was unavoidable. However, this is a unique and quite spectacular solution for fresh looks and you can give it a try if you are bold enough. Colorful were also the glasses at Nina Ricci, Preen and others.
