I would like to not confess our love for eyewear trends, seen on Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, or Cara Delevinge. From thin minimalistic metal glasses frames for men to retro-chic glasses for women, the 2020 eyewear trends were pure delight. Although we did spend most of the year indoors, certain frame choices made us look more professional on a boring Zoom meeting.
