Every season fashion aficionados wait in heated anticipation of the arrival of the latest eyeglasses and sunglasses trends. One of the most common year-to-year fashion shifts to watch for is the endless battle between oversized, statement-making frames and subtle, subdued classics. Without a doubt, big framed eyewear continues to grow in popularity. From glare-blocking sunglasses to everyday prescription eyeglasses, the fashion world has cleared the way for a “bigger is better” approach to frames of all styles.
Bold, rectangular eyeglass frames have officially transitioned from nerd-chic to modern-standard. Wider, taller lenses allow an attractive, clearer window to the eyes. Strong corners speak to a hip sense of professionalism, but larger overall frames achieve a much lighter, fresher look.
Anyone can wear a pair of oversized frames and look great by remembering a few simple tips.
Make sure the glasses sit properly on your face and that the nose pads are properly fitted. Frames shouldn't touch your cheeks or any part of your face, especially when you smile. Oversized frames can add more weight to the bridge of your nose and temples, so it's essential they're the right size for your face.
Remember that “oversized” isn't actually a size: You're choosing a frame that's oversized based on the size and shape of your face. If you have a petite face, then the right oversized frames are going to be very different than those proportioned for someone with a larger or wider face.
Go bold. After all, oversized glasses are a pretty bold choice, so why not go a little further. Choose the shape or style you'd normally wear, and try that frame in an oversized style. Do you usually wear a pair of aviator sunglasses? Why not try an oversized prescription eyeglasses version? Or go Old Hollywood in a pair of oversized cat-eye frames.
