Rimless glasses are a popular alternative to rimmed glasses, and perfect for a lighter look. We’ve seen them on celebrities of all ages from Zayn Malik and Bella Hadid, to Kate Beckingsale and Richard Gere.
How rimless glasses came about
History lover? You’ll be glad to know that rimless glasses came to life all the way back in the 1820s when an Austrian inventor figured out how to mount the lenses straight onto the bridge. This bright spark did it to help reduce the weight, but it also had another unexpected benefit…
By figuring out how to mount your choice of lenses directly without cracking them, he managed to do away with the need for a frame.
While many people love frames, there’s plenty of others who prefer a more subtle look, or don’t want anything that obstructs their features.
Rimless glasses meet you halfway by correcting your vision while keeping the overall change to your look down to a minimum. They’re ideal when you want to keep your style subtle and minimalist without having to miss out on the fine details.
Even better – they’re also very lightweight and comfortable and never obstruct your view when reading or driving.
Where to debut your rimless glasses
Rimless glasses are some of the easiest to style, since they basically blend with any outfit – whether you’re dressed to party, run errands, or head to work.
If you opt for the rimless look you’ll want to know where you can give your new style it’s long-awaited debut.
By pairing your glasses with a smart suit or corporate style outfit, you can turn on the style with a meticulous look that shows you really mean business. You’ll come across as focused, studious, and ready to get the job done.
And because this frame shape can go with any face shape, you’ll love your new look from the moment you take a peak in the mirror.
