Wearing stylish eyeglasses is a great and simple way to make a fashion statement. That’s why you see so many different kinds of people – from your cousin to Hollywood celebrities – sporting their own pair of unique eyeglass frames.
They could be wearing the glasses to correct their vision or simply as a fashion accessory to complete a look, but all glasses-wearers have one thing in common: they want a pair of glasses that will make them look great. If you can select the right frame shape, style and colour, then achieving this goal isn’t hard. But if you really want to make an impression, it’s best to search for a pair of unique eyeglass frames.
Ever since fashionable eyeglasses were first invented, which was at about the beginning of the last century, 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, many of these styles can be used to create a completely unique look with a little creativity and slight variation. As it stands, many of the unique eyeglass frames you see these days are basically a rework of popular designs from past decades – and many of them look great. Here are a few of our favourite funky and unique designs that may inspire you to make a statement with your next pair of glasses:
Oversized & Bold
These frames have very prominent temples and a navy blue frame that help emphasize their distinct shape. The big, bold frames and colour definitely make these glasses stand out.
Cat Eye & Quirky
This pair takes the retro cat-eye style and gives it a creative twist. The scalloped edges and unique colour scheme make for a quirky and fun variation on the traditional style, and one that you probably won’t see many people sporting.
Retro-Wingtip & Translucent
Glasses with yellow-tinted frames are a style that you don’t see every day. Particularly great for those with medium to dark skin tones, the translucent, amber-colored frames of this Lacoste pair definitely make for unique eyeglass frames. The Retro-Wingtip lens shape nicely compliments the amber colour, making this pair very wearable.
