|This winter season promises to be a trendier period for prescription glasses. Like a blast from the past, nerdy spectacles have soon become a style statement and are getting accepted in the crowd. This nerdy impression is best represented by plastic wayfarer or round styles that are slightly oversized. The preferred colour has been transparent, black, tortoiseshell or brown. When the frame is not oversized, and they comprise of rimless or semi rimless glassesand styles, than they reflect a more bookworm look. You can also try bolder shades or half-coloured frames to radiate a wackier look. This turn of the geeky image into a fashion statement is a resounding proof of how far prescription glasses have come.
Another trend which has been spotted is the use of angular designs in the frame structure. Use of graphics and bright colours are now used to exude an unmistakable contemporary appeal. Ombre effect and gradient lenses are now not only placed in sunglasses but also on the regular prescription glasses. There are now partial details like prints, patterns and filigree that are incorporated in the arms designs to reflect a truly graphic feel. In fact, even the classic aviators are given a makeover with vibrant colours and interesting textures to give it a modern appearance.
