Rocking stylish eyeglasses is a great way to make a fashion statement. That’s why everyone from your grandmother to famous athletes can be seen sporting their own pair of unique eyeglass frames.
Whether they’re wearing the glasses to the correct their vision or simply as a fashion accessory, all glasses-wearers have one thing in common: they want glasses that will make them look great. And if you choose the right frame shape, style and colour, it’s not difficult to achieve this. But to really make an impression and stand out from the crowd, you should search for a pair of unique eyeglass frames.
Glasses have come a long way from their original, singular function of correcting vision to what they are today. Ever since they’ve become a popular accessory, fashion-conscious designers have worked hard to create unique designs for glasses frames. Different eras have seen the invention and popularity of frame styles that were specific to their respective times – cat eyes, brow-lines, Retro-Wingtips, aviator glasses, sporty glasses and oversized frames. While many of these are still popular today, they can’t really be considered one-of-a-kind.
That said, with a little creative variation, these styles can be used to create a completely unique look. As it is, most unique eyeglass frames these days are variations of popular designs from a variety of eras. Here are a few of our favourite unique designs that just might inspire you to make a statement of your own.
Oversized & Bold
The big, bold frames and funky colour of these eyeglasses really make this a choice that stands out. The prominent temples and think navy blue frame emphasize a distinct and unique shape.
Cat Eye & Quirky
This pair is definitely quirky and different. You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone else wearing this feminine, cat-eye style. The scalloped edges and unique colour scheme make for a fun twist on the traditional retro style.
Retro-Wingtip & Translucent
Yellow-tinted frames on eyeglasses are one style you don’t normally see. A very stylish choice for those with medium to dark skin tones, the translucent, amber-coloured frames of this choice from Lacoste definitely make for unique eyeglass frames.
