Plastic Glasses

Acetate and plastic glasses for fun, funky style

Clearly offers plastic and acetate frames in a wide range of sizes, colours, shapes, finishes, and designs. Not only are these materials flexible, they’re also extremely durable and lightweight, especially acetate. Clear frame glasses are only possible thanks to plastic and acetate frames, as are bright red leopard-print cat-eye glasses. Whether your style is clear, red leopard print, or anything in between, you can find your perfect match among Clearly’s hundreds of plastic frame glasses.

Plastic and acetate glasses

Versatile style from funky chic to barely there

Most of the past decade’s major eyewear trends have involved plastic and acetate glasses. These lightweight materials are so adaptable, they can form any shape and style, from Kanye’s white shutter shades to wraparound visors to matte pastel frames.

Early thick frame glasses tended to be heavy, leaving dents on wearers’ noses and contributing to headaches. But continuing improvements in plastics have made them lighter than ever, giving you hundreds of options for light glasses frames in any colour, size, shape, or style.

Not everyone wants to highlight their glasses, of course. For those who prefer a clear frame style, plastic and acetate glasses are the only way to go. To see Clearly’s selection of semi-transparent and transparent frame glasses, click on the “Colour” filter and select “Clear.”

No matter what your style, Clearly has acetate and plastic glasses for you:

  • Joseph Marc plastic frames bring definition and pattern to traditional eyeglass styles
  • Derek Cardigan offers an incredible variety of acetate and plastic frames, from lavender translucent D-frames to bold black cat-eyes to eye-catching big frames in a deep pink burgundy
  • Get subtle punches of colour combined with bold lines with plastic frames from Main And Central
  • Kam Dhillon’s> plastic glasses take tortoiseshell to new heights, combining the classic pattern with blended-in colour or colour accents, plus pastel frames with a texture like polished seaglass

Or select from other eyewear designers like Ray-Ban, Michael Kors, Armani Exchange, Coach, and Tory Burch. Let your style run wild and you’ll be sure to find a pair of plastic or acetate glasses to match it from Clearly.
