Semi-rimless glasses have a solid frame at the top of the lens along the browline area, and little to no frame around the sides and bottom of the lens. Like rimless frames, which can lighten your look, semi-rimless frames exude a sleek, professional appeal, and transition effortlessly from work to play. The understated style of the bold frame on the top, and nearly invisible bottom frame, play off the energy in your clothing and accessories to suit any venue or fashion mood. Upswept, half-rim cat-eye eyeglasses give a vintage vibe that doesn’t overpower, while refined rectangle sunglasses show off a sophisticated fashion sense. The half-rim style need not mean plain or boring: Our collection includes frames with bold temple embellishments and decorative details to suit every fashion whim.
Browline and clubmaster glasses are a category of semi-rimless glasses. While all browline glasses are semi-rimless, there are other varieties of semi-rimless glasses, so not all semi-rimless frames fall within the browline category. It can get a little confusing, since part of what defines a semi-rimless frame is that the lenses are mounted at the browline, with little to no frame on the bottom of the lens. But browline glasses are more defined by the bold, thicker browline frame, while other varieties of semi-rimless glasses can have more subtle frame features at the top of the lens.
Yes, it seems that semi-rimless glasses are more in style than they ever have been. With influencers and celebrities seeking authentic, retro looks, they’ve settled on semi-rimless eyeglasses and sunglasses as the centerpieces to their vintage-inspired ensembles. That’s not to say that semi-rimless glasses have peaked and will soon be out of style. The classic look of semi-rimless glasses has always been a defining style trend in either the mainstream or niche fashion cultures. You really can’t go wrong with this timeless look if you’re looking to make a subtle statement about your personal style.
