Thick Rim Dark Frame Glasses

For some people, thin frames can’t get the job done. They might be too flimsy for you, to demure, or too thin to hold your prescription. Even with today’s technology, some people need sturdier frames. Or, maybe you want your glasses to make a statement. If you fall into any of these categories, then consider the every-fashionable thick rim dark frame glasses. These frames are back in a big way. Celebrities have been spotted in them and it is easy to understand why. They’ll remind you of the librarian at your old school, but with a funky twist. 

Thick rim dark frames can communicate confidence, or be fun-loving and quirky. They make dark eyes seem more mysterious and can easily help add depth to your look. Select a frame that matches well with your face shape, and you’re sure to get compliments. 

Fashion Cat Eye Glasses

If you’re a trendsetter and want a pair of frames that’ll add a touch of femininity to your look, whether you’re in jeans and sneakers or a frilly summer dress, consider the feline look. Cat eye glasses are a symbol of power, femininity, and were made popular by fashion icons of years past. Available in many colors, you can choose a pair of red frames for instant attention, or select some navy blue frames to give the classic black look a welcomed-twist. They work well with diamond shaped faces, and have a slendering effect so can make you look younger. 

Clear Frame Glasses

Clear frame glasses are an effortless look and can freshen up any wardrobe. They have an airy appearance, and are equally great in the summer or winter. Clear frame glasses are an excellent choice because they come in a multitude of shapes, ideal for almost any face-shape. If you have a round face, go for a square frame to add length to your face and highlight your features. Those with narrow faces can opt for rectangular frames to emphasize the brow. No matter your choice, clear frames are great for attracting light to your face in all the right places. 

Bright-Colored Frame Glasses

Bright-colored frames are timeless because they add a pop of color and show you’re not afraid to stand out. Choosing the right color that goes with your favorite pieces in your wardrobe and you’ll quickly see your outfits come together effortlessly. Bright colored frames can showcase your personality and be professional. If you have a round face, choose a more angular-shaped frame to define the curves of your face. 

Oversized Glasses

Oversized glasses can be funky or sleek. You can opt for square, oval, round, rectangular, or what you are attracted you. These frames are a great option to use if you want optimal protection from harmful UV rays for your eyes, as they cover the most area. They make many frames from acetate, but you’ll also find some cool-looking wire ones. The large frames are ideal for rounded, oval, or full faces because they add contrast and dimension. Just be sure to choose a frame that is square or rectangular.
