Four Stylish Prescription Lens Options for 2017

Mar 17, 2017


In a cruel twist of irony, glasses are an oft-overlooked accessory. Keeping your frames up-to-date, however, can instantly bring your wardrobe current. The following four prescription lens options embody the latest eyewear trends.

Clubmaster is King: This semi-rimless classic is back for 2017. The heavy browline contrasts with the sleek, minimalist exposed frame below, particularly effective at balancing square jaw lines. Pair these frames with a tortoise-shell finish to create a fashion-forward, versatile icon.

Go Big or Go Home: Don’t shy away from oversized frames, especially if you have high cheekbones. This big look can help minimize and soften angular face shapes, and can be the capstone of a cozy, comfortable ensemble. Thin, delicate metal lines are great, but be willing to experiment with heavier plastic frames. Bold, two-tone looks are especially in.

Round and Retro: These old-school ovals are a subtly dynamic option for most face shapes. This shape also comes in the widest variety of frame styles: rimmed, semi-rimmed, and rimless. The more formal you want your frames to look, the less rim you should select. If you choose full rims, brushed stainless and gun-metal finishes are particularly popular right now.

Thick, Thicker, Thickest: The biggest trend through the first quarter of this year is heavy, black frames. This bold look easily accentuates any wardrobe, creating a strong statement without being too extravagant. Chunky, slightly oversized rectangular silhouettes are the most popular variety of this trend, and it has always been popular with cat-eye frames.
