Trend alert: Metal frames are back! For several seasons, acetate frames have been the biggest trend in eyewear. Eyeglasses have always been a functional part of our wardrobe, but now they are also a key accessory needed to complete your favorite outfit. Metal frames are bringing a fresh choice to your daily eyewear selections.
Metal was the original material used to create eyeglasses – often in gold or silver. These were often heavy to wear especially when you added the crystal lenses. Today the frames are crafted in lightweight titanium or stainless steel which allows new shapes in all sizes and colors.
Our optical experts share a glimpse at the hottest trends and some of their favorite frame picks. You can always schedule an appointment with them for personal shopping. They will help you discover the best options for you.
