Most Popular Designer Eyewear Types
Eyeglasses used to be seen by many as a burdensome and unattractive accessory, but in more recent years, prescription lenses have become a fun way for people to express their individual style.
At Gordon Wong Eye Designs & Optometry, we offer our Del Mar, CA, and La Jolla, CA, patients a wide range of frame and lens options. We can provide designer eyewear that addresses vision needs, while enhancing style and appearance. We keep up on the most popular designer eyewear types so that our patients always have a wide selection of attractive lenses and frames to choose from.
Clear and Translucent Frames
One of the most quickly growing trends in eyewear is clear frames. More people are gravitating toward clear frames that work with any outfit, and make a subtle statement without detracting from other style choices.
While clear plastic lenses are highly popular, many choose to alter the trend slightly by adding a little color to their frames. Colorful translucent frames have also seen a rise in popularity. Colored translucent frames can add a punch of color without the appearance of a heavy, bulky frame.
Colorful and Patterned Frames
Although clear and translucent frames are seeing a rise in popularity, colored and patterned frames are not going anywhere. Many of our patients like to make a bolder statement by selecting a noticeable frame. Bright colors and patterns are a good way to draw attention to glasses and create a distinct look. Tortoiseshell frames are particularly popular, but solid colors, animal prints, stripes, and other patterns are also highly requested.
Color is not the only way that people can express their personal style when it comes to glasses. Shape is another way that eyeglass wearers can play around with their look. Oversized lenses remain a popular choice. Large squares, rectangles, and ovals all draw attention to the face and create a bold frame for the eyes.
The cat eye is another shape that has remained a popular choice, as are aviators. The shape that is best for each of our patients depends largely on the natural shape of the face. We always recommend that patients try on a variety of different shaped frames so that they find the one that best suits their facial features.
Color and shape are two of the most distinctive features of a pair of eyeglasses, but many people are also interested in representing a certain brand. Each designer brand has its own style and reputation in the fashion field, and people often want to wear a brand that they feel represents them. At our practice, we carry the most popular designer brands, including:
- Tiffany & Co.
- Kate Spade
- Mont Blanc™
- Michael Kors®
