Olympic Eyewear specializes in carrying a wide variety of wholesale sunglasses brands and styles, tailored for men, women and children. With more than 1,000 popular types to choose from, they strive to meet the demands of fashion trends, staying ahead of the curve and offering retailers a popular selection.

Some of the most popular types and styles include:

  • Animal-print sunglasses are a fun, unusual statement. With the reemergence of leopard and zebra prints hitting the mainstream, some people prefer the look of matching handbags, shoes and sunglasses. They make a perfectly fun, wild, eye-catching accessory!
  • Aviator glasses are reminiscent of Kelly McGillis and Tom Cruise in Top Gun. A trend that never goes out of style, this sunglass style is simply H-O-T on both men and women.
  • Buckle sunglasses are relatively new in the U.S. market and are beginning to sell like hotcakes. This distinct style is sure to be a conversation starter.
  • Celebrity styles are always in high demand. Customers see the latest trends on celebrities and they rush out to replicate these posh new looks. Of course, most people cannot afford celebrity price tags so Olympic Eyewear is the perfect solution to making an expensive statement affordable. Think Jennifer Lopez trends, or even the ever-classic oversized Jackie Kennedy glasses.
  • Clear lens glasses are perfect for people looking for a statement, without the requirement of a prescription. Are you looking for that bold sexy librarian statement? Look no further!
  • Kids’ sunglasses are a great way to protect children’s eyes and allow them to make individual statements.

  • Vintage sunglasses reflect modern trends, but are also reminiscent of 1970s and 1980s eyeglass trends.
  • Wayfarer sunglasses are one of the most popular types of shades. A trend that accommodates the youthful, these playful glasses make bold statements.
