Eye-Catching Geometric Glasses: Pick Your Perfect Pair
November 14, 2023 • 5:58 AM
On the hunt for a trendy and stylish pair of specs? Look no further than geometric glasses. They’re a perfect blend of classic design and modern symmetry, bringing your look right up to date.
Let’s define what geometric glasses are. Then we’ll walk you through choosing the best pair to complement your features and help you combine form with function.
What Are Geometric Glasses Frames?
Geometric glasses come in many different shapes and sizes. For example, they can have rectangular, square, cat-eye, browline, aviator, hexagonal or octagonal frames.
Sometimes called corner frames, their distinctive feature is their pronounced geometric shape, usually with angular edges. Although they can be rimless or semi-rimless, full-rim frames help to highlight their interesting silhouette.
Who Can Wear Geometric Eyeglasses?
When it comes to geometric glasses, the great news is that there’s something for everyone. Angular styles add interesting lines and structure to round and oval faces, while more curved frames help soften the sharper features of strongly defined faces. It’s simply a matter of finding the right look for your face shape and personal style.
Geometric eyeglass frames can be cool and sophisticated, bold and edgy, or creative and fun-loving, depending on their design and the wearer’s personality.
They’re also highly versatile. You can wear them with a suit to work, paired with a little black dress to a cocktail party, or as an accessory to your swimwear as you soak up some rays at the beach.
Choosing Your Geometric Glasses
Because geometric glasses are so defined, it’s essential to choose the right ones for you or they could detract from your style, rather than add to it.
Let’s start with your basic frames.
Pick Frames That Flatter Your Face
As a general rule, the frame shape of your specs should complement your face shape, not try to match it. Most online retailers now offer a handy Virtual Try-On tool, which you can use to check how a particular style works for you.
It’s also important to choose the right frame size for your face. If your frames are too small, they can make your features look pinched — and hurt your nose and ears. And if they’re too big, your glasses may overwhelm your features and annoy you by constantly slipping down your nose.
Some glasses have nose pads, which you can use to adjust the fit slightly, but many don’t. It’s far better to pick the right size to start with anyway. Your retailer’s size guide can help you with this.
Extra-narrow: The Twain
Wide: The Jessie
If your face is fairly angular, softer geometric glasses will probably complement it better. You could try on some cat-eye styles, for example:
Choose Colors You Love
Of course, you’ll want the color of your geometric glasses to complement your skin tone and hair color and bring out your eyes. Most people know what colors suit them, but if you’re not sure, you can use the Virtual Try-On tool again or ask a friend or family member.
But the importance of frame color goes far beyond that — it’s also a reflection of your personality and your style.
For example, if you prefer a modern, minimalist look, you might go with clear frames. Brown tortoiseshell glasses are warm, grounded, and versatile, while blue tortoiseshell is timeless and adds a pop of confident color. Black frames are chic and elegant. Soft blue glasses radiate a cool, calm, and collected vibe, while elegant pink ones give you the delicate air of an English rose.
If you shop at Pair Eyewear, you can choose any of these colors for your Base Frame — but your options don’t end there. You also get to add as many magnetic Top Frames as you like, giving you an endless variety of ways to express yourself.
For example, you could go with the bold Red Top Frame to show off your passion and drive or the colorful Confetti to match your bubbly personality. If you’re an art lover, you could choose Top Frames from the charming Van Gogh collection or the striking Frida Kahlo one.
Sports enthusiasts will love the wide selection of frames in NBA, NHL, and MLB team colors. Our Best Sellers are always a good choice and while our Limited Editions might only be available for a short time, they’ll never go out of fashion and you can wear them again and again.
Get Functional With Lens Options
If you wear prescription lenses, you’ll need to make sure your prescription is up to date before placing your order for geometric glasses. It’s a good idea to get your eye doctor to measure your pupillary distance too, so your lenses can be optimized for you.
Apart from your basic prescription, you can also choose to add extra lens upgrades. For example:
Transition lenses — also known as light-responsive or photochromic lenses — change from clear to tinted when they’re exposed to bright light. They’re useful if you move between indoors and outside during the day and only want to carry around one pair of glasses.
Ultrathin Premium Plus lenses are designed to reduce the weight of high-prescription glasses that might otherwise weigh you down.
Depending on your lifestyle, these extra functional features can make all the difference to your day.
