What are the Latest Styles of Men’s Eyeglass Frames?

 
The year 2013 has seen a resurgence in vintage fashions, and designer eyeglasses have been no exception. Men wanting to nab a fashion-forward look should consider these iconic eyeglass frame styles.

Geek Chic

Also known as nerd chic, the geek chic look is reminiscent of the Buddy Holly era. Think big, bold frames popular among hipsters, such as Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Celebrities like Johnny Depp have taken this trend and ran with it, pairing these men’s eyeglasses with tailored suits or casual attire to create a look that is as individual as you are.

Mad Men

Along those same lines, many designers are drawing inspiration from the television hit Mad Men. Taking popular frame styles from the 50’s and 60’s, current trends in men’s eyewear include a variety of vintage designs, from tortoiseshell frames to horn-rimmed glasses. Two-tone and gold-plated styles are also seeing an increase in popularity. Expect to find these hot frames from designers like Morrissey, Dolce and Gabbana, and Giorgio Armani, just to name a few.

The Professional

While retro trends are taking the fashion world by storm, sophisticated eyeglass frames for men are still in high demand. The cubic frame consists of a boxy shape, with many designers favoring a brimless finish. This ultra modern look is angular and strong, projecting a look of confidence and intellectualism. Pair them with business suits or casual outfits for a futuristic look that stands out from the rest.

Cut it Out

Cut-out patterns have been spotted all over the fashion world this year, from leather shoes to earrings. Eyewear has been no exception, and designers are finding new ways to add interest to even the most basic frames. Sidearm and bridge cut-outs are becoming increasingly common, and the patterns and colors of these designs are limited only to the designer’s imagination. Choose geometric patterns for a more contemporary look, or color contrast frames for just a hint of attention.
