The Optical Frames to Keep an Eye On
Whether you’re an actual student or just craving to look like one, the geek chic look has landed with a bang. Not since suspenders and bow ties have a collegiate everyday item been as lauded by the fashion world. Even if you’ve been blessed with 20/20 vision (lucky you!), you may be tempted into trying one of these eye-catching optical frames. Ready for some eye-popping style? These are the most talked-about trends for optical frames.
It’s a consistent classic for a reason - brown and black tortoiseshell frames are universally flattering on all complexions. Whatever shape you decide on - the uber-trendy Clark Kent square or the upturned retro cat-eye - you’ll be bang on trend in this versatile frame. Even better - the two-tone coloring does wonders to bring out natural highlights in the eyes.
A Sprinkling of Gold
No, we’re not talking about blinged-out Lady Gaga gold. The gold accent is much more subdued. Think thin wireframes in fashionable matte gold or barely-there delicate brushed metal in shimmering shiny metal. These frames are elegantly understated - the perfect choice for the busy professional with an eye on fashion.
This one is for the mildly adventurous - in tune with the trends yet still classic and chic. Blush toned colors add some romance to everyday frames - delicate acetate designs in tones of baby pink, mint green, nude beige and crystal clear. Ideal for even the most casual of spectacle-wearer, these neutral styles are the style star’s dream.
If making a statement sounds like your style, retro optical frames will be right up your alley. Super defined cat-eye frames are all the rage in sunglasses, but now it’s crossed over to spectacles too. Although less pronounced, the cat-eye shape lends itself to every frame finish out there, particularly tortoiseshell, for a versatile, on-trend appeal.
