Being four-eyed never looked so good. Back in the day, glasses may have been a sign of weakness. Now, they’re the hottest accessory around. Whether you need prescription lenses to function, or simply want to tap into that geek chic aesthetic (we’re looking at you LeBron and Dwayne Wade), these eight frames will help you elevate your style.
WARBY PARKER BROOKS IN STRIPED PACIFIC
Set yourself apart with these slightly blue-hued fames. Smooth angles make a statement without being too severe, and the lightweight titanium arms and bridge add extra interest.
TOM FORD SQUARE OPTICAL FRAME IN BLACK
Here’s a pair that will make you look professional, pulled-together, and on trend today…and probably forever. Quite frankly, we expect nothing less from the timeless Tom Ford.
SALT OPTICS ALBERT IN TEA
Even though thick, black frames probably won’t disappear anytime soon, clear plastic frames have crept onto the scene—a look that can be difficult to pull off. However, this translucent hue should work on most skin types. Plus, the frame itself isn’t too out-there, so you won’t venture too far into hipster territory.
MOSCOT MILTZEN IN TORTOISE
Okay, sure, the shape of these specs are slightly reminiscent of Harry-Potter, but the throwback style also echoes the iconic Andy Warhol and John Lennon. It’s also based off of one of Moscot’s original designs, which dates back to the 1930s.
SEE 5621 IN BLACK
This pair from See achieves that chunky, hipster look that NBA players love, without being ostentatious. But it’s the matte color that really sets them apart from your run-of-the-mill black frames.
PERSOL ICONS IN HAVANA
Add some vintage flair to your face with these tortoise shell half-frame specs from Persol. It’s a retro look that’s on the verge of becoming a classic.
OLIVER PEOPLES SCHEYER IN BLACK
Looking for something that’s Patrick Bateman-chic? These oversized frames call to mind the 1980s style that dominated Wall Street.
RAY BAN WAYFARER LITEFORCE OPTICS IN BLACK
One of the freshest frames from Ray Ban takes their classic Wayfarer shape, but instead of plastic uses “LiteForce,” a lighter material, for a sleeker, more comfortable look.
