Continuing in our series of hot style trends for the spring/ summer 2023 season, we are going to look at another big trend for this upcoming season, crystals. Last week we covered ballet-inspired eyewear, as the ballet-inspired look will be everywhere in women’s fashion this season. Another trend that we saw repeatedly across global runways, and the pages of fashion magazines were crystals, aka very sheer styles, will be in vogue. We pulled a selection from the De Rigo Rem portfolio of our most stunning crystal styles for you. If you’d like to see the full portfolio of crystal frames we have to offer, click here.
