17 Glasses You Will Want To Wear

Wearing the same glasses every day can become a bit redundant. Before you go through the list, let me just write a little disclaimer – this list is definitely not a guide in terms of glasses you should be wearing. The best way to pick the perfect glasses for you is to go to a store and try them yourself. If you have to wear glasses every day, you have to love them. If you like doing a little extra research or are just curious about the some different trends – keep reading! There’s plenty here to explore. 

This was a hard topic to put together, there’s so many websites for glasses! So many styles to chose from, so many articles about trends to read through! And I’ve done all the hard work so you don’t have to. Here are some of the glasses trends you may or may not have noticed. 

1. Transparent Frames

These glasses have gained some popularity for the last few years and it probably has to do with practicality. They are easy to wear, they work with almost any complexion and look great on most faces!

3. Browline Frames

Speaking of timeless glasses. Browline glasses were very popular in the 1950s and 1960s, especially in the US. The name derives from the fact that the “bold” upper part of the frames frame the lenses in the same way that eyebrows frame the eyes. If you get a pair of browline frames, you are almost certainly going to be really happy with the way they look as they flawlessly combine the best parts of modern and retro design

4. Large Thin Golden Frames

Another retro look which is definitely making a comeback – thin golden frames. They are particularly popular in a round shape, recalling the popular Jazz Age styles. However, there’s also a modern spin on the classic with the hexagon shape, or the rectangular shape.

Again with the metal frames? Yes, but here it’s all about the design. If you want to go for an old school look, you should try a pair of double-bridge navigators.

12. Bold Black Frames

Speaking of “go big”, the bold black frames are really popular. They are often categorised as “geeky”, because they are bulky glasses. The bigger the glasses the bigger the brains, I guess.
