Metal framed glasses: who are they right for?

VIPs, celebrities and style icons show off their sunglasses with pride, but even optical frames have now become an accessory with which to complete your look. If the plastic and acetate models are the most popular, there is a sophisticated slice of the public, a lover of the classic and timeless look but also looking for light but impactful designs that make their way and prefer metal glasses.

From the “aviator” model  worn by Tom Cruise in Top Gun to the round ones worn by John Lennon and Janis Joplin, from Bob Dylan’s Cat-Eyes to Fellini’s glasses, you are really spoiled for choice.

Features of metal glasses

Eyeglasses and sunglasses have become more than just a way to correct vision or protect your eyes from harmful sun rays. Among the different options available on the market, metal glasses stand out for their timeless elegance and ability to adapt to a wide range of styles and faces.

Metal glasses have become popular due to their durability and resistance; the material used in their construction, such as stainless steel, titanium or aluminum, makes them robust and durable but this feature is not the only one that has won us over.

The frames of this type are versatile and often have a thin and light design that makes them comfortable to wear for long periods of time: the lightness allows you to avoid feeling heavy on the nose or temples, offering optimal comfort for those who have to wear corrective lenses all day.

Versatility is another key feature of metal eyewear: thanks to the wide range of colors and finishes available, it’s possible to find metal eyewear to suit every type of style and personality; from minimalist and slim frames to bold and structured ones, they adapt to both a formal and a casual look, offering endless possibilities to combine with outfits.

Why choose this material for your new frames

There are several reasons why metal eyewear is a popular choice among fashion and trendsetters. Let’s start from the intrinsic elegance of metallic materials, it gives the glasses a sophisticated and refined look… if you are looking for a pair of glasses that are both functional and fashionable, metal glasses are the ideal choice! But that’s not all: unlike other materials, such as plastic, which may deteriorate over time, metal glasses retain their original shape and appearance for longer.

Who are metal glasses for?

It is not so much a question of material as of form; the versatility of metal glasses makes them suitable for a wide range of face shapes. In particular, thinner, frameless frames are perfect for people with a round or oval face as they tend to blur the contours, creating a smooth, streamlined look.

People with a square face can opt for metal frames with more rounded shapes, which help soften their features. Not to be underestimated, the more particular frames with structured details or bold designs can add a touch of personality to those who want to impress.
