New year = new you. If you’re looking to level up your eyewear game, here are some of the best prescription eyewear trends 2023 has to bring.
From retro throwbacks that complement most face shapes to barely there frames that keep you looking fresh, there are so many trends to try in the coming season. Whether you love elegant or bold, there’s an eyewear style for everyone. Take a look below at our favourite on-trend glasses at SelectSpecs…
1) Cool Cateye Glasses
Turn up the retro vibes with a pair of cateye frames that make the 50s and 60s feel ultra-modern and bang up to date. A great example is the Icon G5276 (With Clip On) glasses, designed with a futuristic feel and runway-inspired transparent frame fronts, combined with jet black sides for instant impact when you walk in a room. Also available in green – but we love the black and clear contrast for total contemporary chic.
2) Glasses with Clear Frames
Transparent specs don’t get any more luxe than this. These designer Dolce & Gabbana DG5025 glasses have the clear trend nailed. See-through styles are one of the top prescription eyewear trends to watch this year, and this show-stopping frame features a diamond cut, adding texture as well as depth and dimension to your accessories.
If you’ve ever wondered how something can be bold and subtle at the same time, here’s your answer…
3) Classic Wire Frames
Wire frames are back and in 2023, the thinner the better. We love this trend because it’s all about achieving that elegant, understated look. Not only is this one of the prescription eyewear trends that qualify as a timeless classic, but wire frames are suitable for almost any event or occasion and can be matched with any outfit in your wardrobe.
Cool and casual, boardroom-ready or smart and formal, wire frame glasses get the go-ahead from us!
For the office, we’re loving the Ray-Ban RX6413 frames, which take on the coveted aviator style as seen on celebs such as Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber…
For the weekend, opt for something more daring like the octagonal Owlet OWMM286 glasses…
4) Round Eyewear Styles
Get the roaring 20s look with 2023’s circular eyewear craze. Round frames have been super popular in the sunglasses category, with retro fans being the biggest advocators of this sassy silhouette.
For amped-up style, we can’t get enough of these Infinity YKW0031 prescription glasses, made for androgynous appeal and a thick rim that doesn’t shy away from the spotlight. Word of warning: not made for wallflowers.
5) Big Square Specs
Talk about making a statement. It takes a brave wardrobe to help you pull off the oversized square glasses look, so go all out on your attire. If you want to get on board with this new trend for 2023, think extra thick rims, 70s-inspired acetate, bold colours and big temples.
Excited to give this look a go? We recommend something electric blue like these Booth & Bruce Here and Now BB2101 glasses. Also available in a lively pillar box red!
