Modern Eyewear Fashion Trends
Modern eyeglass frames can be found in rimless and semi-rimless varieties (where the lens is held in place with a screw or a wire) as well as traditional full-frames. If the rimless and semi-rimless varieties are combined with a lens anti-reflective coating it can almost appear as if you are not wearing glasses at all. These types of eyeglasses (rimless and semi-rimless) are lightweight, durable and have a modern sophisticated look.
Another development in eyeglass frame technology is the use of titanium. Titanium is extremely lightweight and non-corrosive, serving to be both durable and fashionable as well as a good choice for those with an allergy to nickel.
Other popular metal frame materials include stainless steel and aluminum, which are again very durable and modern looking. Modern eyeglasses are increasingly using plastic to give a stylish look to frames and are available in a variety of styles – from classic frame styles to bold ones with layers of colored plastics that are laminated together for standout effects.
