Michelle Lane is beloved by fans for its classic shapes, inventive shades, and small feminine touches. The result is a range of glasses with understated elegance that can be worn from work to the weekend in easy, chic style. Her most recent launch — 2016’s Paris collection — has recently been refreshed in 4 new sweet Spring hues, adding to the original and wildly popular lineup of inky blacks, cool olives, deep indigos, and warm caramels. Cat eyes, butterfly shapes, and classic rectangles make up the majority of Michelle Lane’s most popular styles, and we round up the top 5 below:
#1 Michelle Lane 815 Noir
Starting us off is the biggest hit from the Paris collection. The 815 is a flattering, narrow rectangular shape that flatters round and oval faces. The glossy black acetate is lined with a swirling purple design that shines through, lending a halo effect to the face.
#2 Michelle Lane 815 Ecaillé Rose
Next up we have the 815 again — this time in a warm pink tortoise hue. Michelle designed the frame’s arms with a Baroque cut-out design based on the romantic wrought-iron balconies of the Champs-Élysées.
#3 Michelle Lane 821 Noir
This rounded cat eye frame is a good choice for angular features and square jaws, and comes in the same ethereal black and purple layering. The cut-out design lines the arms, which fit small and medium faces in comfort and style.
#4 Michelle Lane 812 Au Naturel
This butterfly-shaped pair comes in a warm caramel hue, and flatters heart and triangle faces beautifully, with a smooth D-shaped base that suits square jaws. Frame arms are adorned with a glittering resin dot pattern, giving the effect of shimmering crystals without the risk of fallout.
#5 Michelle Lane 818 Noir
This beautiful, flattering shape rounds out the top 5 by offering something for everyone. The narrow rectangular style looks great on rounded jaws and soft features, while its curved cat eye temples flatter wide foreheads.
