Rimless glasses are making a comeback, and there are lots of reasons to try out this trend.
For a start, they are super lightweight, so if you don’t like the feeling of heavy glasses on your face, then a rimless pair are a great idea.
They’re also really easy to clean; with no rim, there are less awkward spaces for grit and grime to get caught, so you can simply give your lenses a quick wipe and be guaranteed a clear canvas.
For those of us with mega prescriptions, they’re a clever option.
Lenses as thick as the bottoms of milk bottles even when they’ve been thinned down?
Never again will you have to worry about them fitting into the frame, or awkwardly overlapping it.
Their form also means you almost always get adjustable silicon nose pads, so you can actually fit the glasses to your face for optimum comfort.
Finally, rimless glasses are super versatile — you can find pairs that you can barely see on your face as well as pairs that make up for the subtle lenses with chunky arms and standout nose bridges.
If you don’t want to blend in then you don’t have to!
While you might associate rimless glasses with the 90s and early 00s, there are plenty of current-day celebs and influencers getting back in on the act, partly down to the renewed popularity of rimless shades.
Part of the appeal is surely how clean and clutter-free they look.
