What is going to be the number 1 trending style of shades in 2017? The sunglasses that all the big names will be wearing by the end of the summer.
I've spent the last six weeks tracking hard data taken from a wide range of sources and I feel it was worth the effort.
Tracking data is quite dull and repetitive but it is effective at finding some very interesting products, in this case the hottest sunglasses on the planet!
Without further ado I give you the top 5 sunglasses in the world.
#5 - MEN'S BAMBOO WOOD SUNGLASSES
Wooden sunglasses are not a new concept, they have had their moments over the past few years but have always fallen short when it comes to taking off as a trend.
The bamboo wood seems to have hit the mark this year, people are loving the eco-friendliness bamboo offers, the color options (see all 4 here) and the durability making them perfect for every summer activity.

#4 - VINTAGE COLECLASS MEN'S SUNGLASSES
If you are looking for a pair of sunglasses to wear while driving a convertible sports car good news you've just found them.
Inspired by the movie trilogy "The Matrix" these shades were designed to look smart, professional and maybe a little android. One thing is for sure they look awesome and are going to go viral this summer.

#3 - RETRO STEAMPUNK SUNGLASSES
In 2011 I noticed a steady trend with the term "steampunk" since then it has been growing quite quickly and I predict 2018 will be a huge year for steampunk in general.
Back to 2017 and I see these steampunk sunglasses are making huge waves over the past three weeks, it's been such a fast mover I think it stands a chance of being number one by the end of the year.
The classic style once showcased by John Lennon has the retro steampunk side panels and a wide range of color choices (view them all here).

#2 - STARK SUNGLASSES
This cross style frame is unique to say the least! All the lenses are super modern even dare I say "tech" but the frames have origins from the 1970's.
The combination equals STYLE big time STYLE trust me, turn up at the club wearing these and boom VIP invite no joke.

#1 - MEN'S OVER-SIZED OCULOS SUNGLASSES
So we have hit number one and what a number one it is!
I must say that when I first discovered these sunglasses my initial reaction was "they look good but maybe the model makes them look good"
When they arrived in the office I instantly changed my mind and I might not look as good as the model (some may disagree) but dam I feel good wearing these shades.
Over-sized sunglasses are super cool and these bad boys are trending like crazy, I predict by the end of 2017 a lot of big names will be wearing them at all the right places.
