One of the most popular trends in glasses continue to be the rimmed glasses (or full rim glasses). It’s so great to see that people that don’t even wear glasses have jumped on the band wagon of eyeglass wearers…wearing “fashion glasses” to be part of the trend.
Rimmed glasses come in so many varieties and shapes it gives room for so much creativity with ones looks.
- The thick black frames are very strong and give a strong message. Available in in many shapes but the most popular being the square “nerd glasses” type. These have been adorned by celebs as well as all our fashion mavens and still continue to appear on the runways.
These are classic styles that have been around for years they express a certainty and
Great for an evening out in a simple black suit as we see Matt. Or great for the casual hip jeans days.
- Cateye frames with thinner and lighter rims these are more demur yet alluring and very sexy. Often with some type of bling…mostly for ladies but heck not out of the question for men. This is also a classically inspired style from the 1950s and ’60s and continues to show up on the runways in all types of ways. Cateyes bring on a very catchey look that evokes reaction; and what’s great is that you can even find the softer cat eyes as well as the ones with really sharp lines.
- Round glasses are another version these can come in the rimless glasses version or with lighter and much thinner rimmed frames: Ala John Lennon, Harry Potter. In this shape there also many updated and modern interpretation that are fun and easy to wear but one must be sure that the face is not already too round! Wearing round glasses with a round face is not at all flattering and a mistake to be avoided. Then there are the rounded yet more horn-rimmed shapes that are the Great Gatsby inspired…more racy yet very retro.
