Trend Watch: Mono-loco

The hottest trend in eyewear for this Spring/Summer season are monocle-inspired frames reminiscent of days of yore, and an echo of the iconic style of John Lennon. Whether you’re a guy or a gal, this is a statement that fashionistas across the map are snappin’ up.

The monocle craze started in the UK in late 2009, and has finally reached it’s way to the shores of North America. Celebrities like Johnny Depp and Bono are fans, and the infamous, fictional Harry Potter has been in on the geek chic trend for years.
