Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that funky metal glasses are all the rage right now. Wireframe prescription eyewear has made a big comeback in 2023, with a mix of retro styles and vintage-inspired frames as well as more contemporary designs to bring your wardrobe up-to-date.
Just turn to social media sensations and runway goddesses like Gigi Hadid for inspiration as she fronts the Vogue Eyewear campaign in metal frames. Other celebrities to follow include Emily Ratajkowski, Hailey Bieber, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Aniston, and Bella Hadid – all fans of the classic wireframe.
But we’re not here to talk about classics. Because we know how important it is to be different and stand out. Eyewear can be a great way to express yourself artistically, and we love how a funky twist on something simple and basic can make all the difference.
If you love the funky metal glasses trend, here are 5 unique styles to covet in 2023…
MINIMA Contour-1 K2
The MINIMA Contour-1 K2 specs bring together elegant wireframe design, lightweight touch and a bold splash of colour for good measure!
If you love the funky metal glasses trend, this design takes the narrative to a whole new level. Clean, contemporary finish, modern and runway-approved while still being totally wearable for the office. These are your classic wireframes amped up for everyday wear.
Roberto Cavalli VRC021M
We love the Roberto Cavalli VRC021M prescription glasses because it’s everything you could dream of rolled into one. The black frame front and gold temple contrast make you stand out from the crowd, the snake detailing are retro goals for anyone who appreciates fashion through the ages, while the classic lens shape make them super easy to wear.
Sure, these aren’t exactly suited for the wallflower. But if you’re confident and love to attract attention (and don’t mind striking up conversations with strangers) then these frames are perfect for your collection…
Funky Focus 95929
And let there be colour! Wireframe specs don’t have to be silver or gold. We know those are the classic colour palettes to follow, and we know that silver and gold are easy to match to your skin tone (whether cool or warm). But sometimes it’s just fun to inject a bit of colour…
If you love playful twists on timeless eyewear, you’ll love these funky metal glasses from Funky Focus. Word of warning: don’t buy these if you don’t like to be stared at, because you will attract attention (lots and lots of attention).
Fun, twisted, yet also totally timeless. The Binocle GUIMAUVE glasses are a gentle take on funky metal glasses. Because the frame follows all the classic design rules. With a touch of colour on the browline, these frames offer something out of the ordinary, but the specs are easy to wear with everyday attire.
Style with jeans and a t-shirt and your Sunday casuals, your lazy day sweats and yoga pants, your tailored suit and office wear, or a chic summer dress for your lunch date.
Miu Miu MU 50TV
If you think wireframe glasses are kinda boring, think again. The Miu Miu MU 50TV funky metal glasses take elegant and simple and flip the script so you have something that doesn’t blend in with the crowd.
The textured metal addition on the frame front are the perfect designer detail, turning bog standard eyewear into a high fashion masterpiece. Choose from classy pale gold and millennial rose gold to suit your skin tone.
