Is wire-rimmed the latest trend in eyewear? It’s actually the oldest.
No matter, really, wire-rimmed glasses are simply a timeless and versatile style that’s been trending on and off since eyeglasses were invented.
Some of the first eyeglasses were plain metal frames. Because they are remarkably simple and easy to make, people have been wearing wire-rimmed glasses since the 13th century.
People aren’t choosing wire-rimmed glasses only because of their simplistic nature. Wire-rimmed glasses are officially in again. And they’ve come a long way since the days of Napoleon Dynamite and Harry Potter. Whether you’re reaching for ‘70s-inspired aviators, classic round frames, or retro ovals, wire-rim glasses officially have the style seal of approval again.
How do you choose wire-rimmed glasses?
Because there are so many frame options, it’s best to look at your face shape and the aesthetic you’re going for. What look do you want to achieve?
Wireframes can cover a variety of staples—from retro-vintage to hipster glasses in square, round, aviator, and butterfly shapes. And they can flatter every face shape.
