So we’ve talked about green sunglasses and how they’re a summer sun must-have in 2023 – but what about green prescription glasses? Adding a splash of colour to your prescription eyewear is a quick and easy way of updating your wardrobe, injecting a bit of fun, and giving your outfits a much-needed refresh. And with the green colour palette, there are so many shades to choose from.
Botanical greens in particular have been a favourite among influencers, and we’ve seen everything from lush forest greens, deep jungle greens and herbaceous greens to rich gemstone greens, as well as gentler hues like olive or pistachio.
If you’re looking for a new pair of specs in 2023, here are our top 10 green eyewear styles to try…
1) Burberry BE2318
Simple and elegant, you can’t go wrong with these green prescription glasses from Burberry. Designed with gentle curves and a modest silhouette, the Burberry BE2318 frame makes it easy to tap into this runway colour trend without shifting too far from the classics.
2) Vera Wang Luxe DEREK
These deep emerald green prescription glasses have a timeless look that suits all ages, all wardrobe styles, and all events and occasions. A truly versatile eyewear piece that can be worn every day and with just about any outfit. This is a rich colour that will instantly elevate your look.
3) Booth & Bruce Design po65
A pure olive hue that satisfies the earthy palette fan. This colour is ultra-flattering on just about everyone, and the chic and effortless shape is easy to wear whether in the office or out on the town. These Booth & Bruce Design po65 specs are also unisex, making them a great option for both men and women.
4) Swarovski SK0357
If you’re looking for oversized chunky frames that get you noticed, the Swarovski SK0357 green prescription glasses need to be on your wish list for SS23. Square rims work best with a round face shape and the gem-studded temples work best with an extra dose of confidence. These specs are blingy without a doubt so stay well away if you’d rather slip under the radar…
5) Icy Eyewear – Plastics Icy 285
We love the Icy Eyewear – Plastics Icy 285 glasses, not just because they are 100% runway-approved but also because they are super affordable. Grab these while you can under the £50 mark and get FREE Single Vision Basic Lenses when you order them online at SelectSpecs. The lime colourway is a refreshing shade of green that will get your wardrobe updated for the warm months ahead.
6) Kensie FINESSE
Rock the Kensie FINESSE prescription glasses in a dark forest green, made for those who want to look polished and sophisticated day-to-day. Whether for work or just everyday wear, these frames are grown-up and look/feel much more expensive than they are!
7) StepperS STS 40226
In a Persian green, these StepperS STS 40226 wire frame glasses bring something slightly more exotic to the table. We love how slim and elegant the rim is, and we can’t get enough of the smooth metallic finish which can really help to brighten up your face – giving you an easy way to highlight your best features. They’re also lightweight, comfortable to wear, and seriously easy to style.
8) Just Cavalli VJC005
If you prefer your specs to blend in well with your look, add these Just Cavalli VJC005 green prescription glasses to your basket before they’re gone. The transparent frame is bang on trend but the chunky rim oozes retro cool. This is a flattering shape for most people too, with a modern finish that’s fit for London street style.
9) Woow Brand New 1
If you’re looking for a new pair of glasses that is completely unique looking, these Woow Brand New 1 prescription specs are a must for your collection. They come in a stunning pistachio hue, which has been a favourite on Fendi, Bottega Veneta, Ulla Johnson, Dion Lee and Max Mara runways. This colour blends well with pastels, khakis and other muted shades.
10) Binocle WEZEN II
Let’s throw it back to the original Kermit green, a hot movement in the fashion world driven by Bottega Veneta. In fact, everyone got to know and love this colour as “Bottega Green”, a narrative that fashion designer Daniel Lee led to have it explode all over Instagram. Every influencer under the sun was wearing green at one point and we’re still loving this colour today.
Get your hands on the Binocle WEZEN II green prescription glasses if you’re looking to level up your eyewear game by hopping on this colour trend…
