Fashionable Glasses: How to Find Stylish Rims That Stand Out

Personalized Shape

People think of glasses as looking a certain way, which is typically what is referred to as the ‘way fair frame”. However, there is a vast array of shapes for eyeglass frames, and you can pick the one that best reflects your personal style or that is most flattering to your face. You can choose from square, rectangular, or oblong frames, or a round or oval variety. To mix it up, you can even consider cat eye-shaped, geometric, or oversized styles.

Unique Style

You have two specific styles to choose from: full-frame and semi-rimless. The full-framed variations evoke a traditional, yet retro, spin on eyeglass-wearing. They give the wearer a hint of extra intelligence and class. Meanwhile, the semi-rimless look available at places like All About Eyes is more contemporary and fashion-forward. It gives off more of an air of modern sensibility and charm.

Colors and Patterns 

Ever since a certain talk show host sported her signature pair of red-framed glasses, colored rims have really taken off. They are not just for children anymore, either. With hues ranging from violet to pink for the ladies, and navy blue to silver for the gents, colored frames give eyeglass wearers a true opportunity to express themselves through their spectacles.

Some people take the style a step further and look for cool patterns and textures. Whether you choose tortoise shell, paisley, polka dots, stripes, or floral styles, just be sure that your pattern doesn’t clash with your wardrobe and that it is business-appropriate if you need to wear them in the workplace.

Many Materials to Explore

There are so many different materials that frames are made from these days. Gone are the days when wearers were stuck with gaudy plastic or unseemly wire. Perhaps the sturdiest and most attractive metal used to make frames today is titanium. It’s durable and strong and a favorite of many older eyeglass wearers.

But, while it’s true that you can choose different types of metals, if that is your forte, but you can also consider acetate or study composite materials for long-lasting results. Of course, this is going to be the choice of those that want color variations.

In conclusion, there are many ways to mix it up when choosing eyeglass rims. Take the time to try on different models and explore which styles look best on you and which ones reflect your personality. If you take the time to shop around, you are sure to find the perfect frames for you.
