But before going deep into the specific brands of prescription eyeglasses that are rocking 2018, you should know that the main thing to look at when picking glasses is the frame. With that being said here are some examples of frames guaranteed to make you look cool and good in your prescription glasses:
These frames usual feature a dual color and are very characteristic you can not miss them. They tend to have a darker color on top of the frame which fades into a lighter color on the bottom. Sometimes the top and bottom parts of the frame can be made from different materials, for example, the top bar can be acetate and the bottom metal. The idea is to bring focus to the top frame which gives an instant natural-like eyebrow makeup with an illusionary eye lift thereby eliminating any sight of eye circles and puffiness that are common with prescription glasses.
- Transparent Frames
Transparent frames are also popular and very much in style, they take over from the rimless glasses that have been chic for quite some time. A number of celebrities have been spotting transparent frame prescription glasses all year now, including Oprah Winfrey herself.
