On top of that, metal spectacles are also offered in a wide range of possible styles and designs, giving you the best chance to find the perfect pair for you!
Our top picks of metal glasses styles
One of our favorite trends going around has got to be the ever-classy metal wire frame glasses. These glasses have had a long, star-studded history, with celebs such as Emily Ratajkowski and Stefani Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga) owning their #OOTDs in them.
Another popular variety of metal glasses include the rimless style, known for highlighting the wearer’s natural features without embellishments. Famous wearers of this style of eyewear include Steve Jobs, Zayn Malik and Kate Beckinsale.
Last but not least, there are a few recent rising trends for metal glasses that you should know about. One of these would be the popular oversized oval or circle glasses, or also known as Korean-style glasses. While these can be made from different materials, such as plastic or acetate, idols such as BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and SNSD’s Taeyeon have both been spotted rocking metal Korean glasses.
Metal aviators have also been making its rounds, having been popularized by Marvel’s Spiderman movie, Far From Home, and worn by celebrities such as Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr.
How to style your metal frame spectacles
With so many types of metal glasses to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which ones you should go for. Well, here’s a little guide that might come in handy.
Silver framed glasses tend to go well with wearers that have paler skin tones and darker eye or hair colors. On the other hand, wearers with warmer skin tones or green eyes should definitely try out glasses with golden frames, as the gold color can help bring out the warmth in their features. However, if your skin tone is neither particularly cool or warm, you can try rose-gold glasses, as the subtle pinkish and gold hues highlight the best in all facial features!
Strong prescriptions, no problem!
If you require a strong prescription and are feeling left out from all these eyewear trends, you’re in for a treat. Here at Mouqy, we offer high-index lenses for all kinds of frame styles, meaning that you’ll be able to get glasses with thinner lenses or half-rim frames without any fuss!
