This season we’re seeing vintage eyewear make a comeback, and see-through styles are the way to go. Although transparent glasses have been coveted for a while, AW20 is all about reworking the classics and sticking with warm, fleshy tones that add a touch of colour to the face.
Transparent eyewear in those my-skin-but-better shades can be extremely flattering too. So if you’re having one of those bad hair / bad skin mornings (they happen to the best of us), this trend can turn your day around.
Here are some of our favourite transparent prescription glasses to get your hands on for AW20…
Marc Jacobs MARC 323/G
Golden brown hues are a great way to warm up your skin tone. They add a subtle edge to your wardrobe without stealing the show and can give you a glow when you’re makeup-free. So if you’re in a rush, with no time to reach for the bronzer, these Marc Jacobs MARC 323/G frames will save you.
Tom Ford FT5560-B
These are classic Tom Ford glasses with a twist. If you love the fashion house’s iconic eyewear look, as well as its timeless silhouette, these frames are a must-have for your AW20 collection.
The stylishly chic Tom Ford FT5560-B transparent glasses are flattering for a range of skin tones or face shapes and can be matched with everyone’s favourite makeup colour tones this season. Think Charlotte Tilbury’s warm eyeshadow palettes and beautiful blush, rouge and apricot shades.
If you love the transparent glasses trend but you’re shopping on a budget, these Savannah 9215 specs are everything you need. Not only do they have outstanding customer reviews for quality, style and wearability, but they’re excellent value for money at just £15.00. They even come with FREE single vision, anti-reflection lenses.
With a lighter pink hue, they work well with cooler skin tones and they’re also available in a grey/purple or clear…
Booth & Bruce Here and Now BB1813
This is a real celebration of vintage eyewear and like other styles seen in the Here and Now collection by Booth & Bruce, there’s a timeless look with a modern twist. The brand aims to create stylish, fashionable and funky frames for the eyewear connoisseur. So if you’re looking for something a bit different, these specs are a great addition to your wardrobe.
The Booth & Bruce Here and Now BB1813 transparent glasses feature warm butterscotch tones with a striped pattern, adding a ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your ensemble.
These Icon DTL008 transparent prescription glasses are chic, feminine and elegant. There’s something beautiful about simplicity – and these frames capture fuss-free sophistication in one fluid shape. The silhouette is flattering for different face shapes and the thin plastic rim gives the wearer a subtle appearance, with a gentle nod to runway trends.
Vera Wang V557
If you’re looking for warm hues that breathe life and youthfulness to your face, these Vera Wang transparent frames are a fantastic choice. In fact, they’re an investment. Because while they are totally on-trend with this season’s transparent craze, they’re also timeless in their design.
The Vera Wang V557 glasses feature a warm rose gold colour that will give you a healthy glow, and a sturdy frame that will stand the test of time.
JIMMY CHOO JC257
Oversized, made from acetate, and nerdy librarian certified. This is as 1980s as they come and we can’t get enough of the vintage vibes. These JIMMY CHOO JC257 transparent glasses are reserved for the super cool only. If you’re chic enough, you can pull them off. Think Barb in Stranger Things…..or Goldie Hawn in Foul Play.
Transparent glasses have a reflective quality, and although transparent glasses with warm accents tend to be less reflective than clear frames, they still have an element of shine. If you’re more of a matte person, these Joseph Germain specs could be for you.
These prescription glasses follow the same trend but they feature a frosted matte finish that blends in seamlessly with your hair and makeup. Perfect for standing out in a subtle way.
