The 2024 SAG Awards

The 2024 SAG Awards weren’t just a celebration of cinematic achievements; they also set the stage for this year’s must-watch eyewear trends. While the spotlight often lands on the glamorous attire, we’re turning our eyes towards the standout accessory of the night: eyewear of course, as showcased by the ever-stylish Robert Downey Jr and other celebs!

The Power of Celebrity Eyewear Trends:

Eyewear is more than just a vision aid; it’s a powerful form of self-expression. This year, Robert Downey Jr. captured attention with his choice of Garrett Leight California Optical Broadway Sun glasses, perfectly paired with a custom Fendi ensemble. This moment serves as a reminder of how the right pair of frames can complete any high-profile look, offering inspiration for eyewear aficionados everywhere.

From Bradley’s classic aviator style to Ali’s wow butterfly shape, shops can take cues from the diversity of style seen on the red carpet and ensuring customers finds their perfect pair if they wish to “get the look”.
