The most stylish glasses trends for men in 2023

1. Clear frames

A transparent frame is the most versatile and universally flattering accessory you can cop this year. They’re a subtle way to add some contemporary style to any outfit, and because they’re colorless, they look good on all skin tones too. What’s more, the thicker frame will also be able to accommodate even the highest of prescriptions, so you don’t need to worry about your lenses peeking through from the edge of your frame.
With so many shapes and sizes out there, you’re bound to find a pair of clear glasses that suit your face shape perfectly. For those with angular face shapes, frames with rounded edges will add balance and soften more prominent features. But for individuals with rounder face shapes, square and rectangular frames will provide definition and give you a more chiseled look.

2. Oversized 70s styles

On the other side of the trend spectrum, big, bold silhouettes reminiscent of the 70s have made a dramatic return, giving wearers of all ages a fun outlet to express their individuality. Square, round, aviator – you name it! These chunky frames come in a plethora of silhouettes and colorways to make sure you stand out from the crowd.
Since these frames are on the larger side, always opt for lightweight materials for the most comfortable fit, especially if you plan to wear your glasses throughout the day.
Join the bandwagon with these unapologetic frames:

3. Boldly black frames

Black frames will always be a timeless and sophisticated choice, so it’s no surprise why so many Hollywood stars and musicians have turned to the suave pair to elevate their looks.
The dark hue of these specs will inevitably draw attention to your facial features, so it’s very important to choose the right shape and size for your face shape. But if you’d like to play it safe, you can’t go wrong with a classic rectangular shape with subtly rounded edges. It’s a tried and tested silhouette that looks good on everyone!
The ultimate black frames for a sleek look:

4. Wire frame aviators

If you’re not sure whether you want something modern or vintage-inspired, aviators in contemporary metals will give you the best of both worlds. These lightweight frames capture that quintessential 70s look without being overtly retro, and can be dressed up or down depending on where you’re going.
Classic teardrop-shaped aviators flatter angular faces best, while flat-top rectangular styles will give round face shapes some added definition.
Enhance your look with these face framing styles:

5. Circle lenses

Circle lenses have always enjoyed a large fan base since the beginning of time, and are the best choice for those who want something low-key yet polished. The minimalist design adds a touch of elegance to a simple t-shirt and jeans but also makes a great companion for corporate and black tie events.
These unassuming frames typically suit diamond and heart shaped faces the most, and also flatter the symmetrical features of an oval shaped face.
Take your pick between these classic specs:

Not into traditional silhouettes? Then perhaps this year’s out-of-the-box geometric styles will be right up your alley. From all-out angles to a combination of two shapes, a geometric frame will give you a totally unique look that’s sure to turn many heads your way.
These frames not only highlight your best facial features, but will also accentuate your individual style and personality. A mix of soft curves and sharp angles will give a sartorial spin to your typical round or square frames, while one-of-a-kind polygon shapes will take your style game to new heights.
Go against the grain with these statement frames:
