Forget your school days of being called “four eyes” by bullies, because eyeglasses are now a popular accessory to add extra style to your daily look. It’s the ultimate Revenge of the Nerds! Whether you have vision problems or not, stylish glasses are a great way for men to look next-level dapper with any outfit. The struggle was too real for most guys who needed glasses growing up, but now there’s so many different glasses to chose from — where do you even begin? The combination of the perfect frames for your face, matched with your style vibe, will give you a completely new look and will change the way you see yourself (literally!). Still don’t believe us? Check out the stylish glasses that’ll put you in a different frame of mind.
The Vibe: From professorsexual to Harry Potter perfection, this style of frame gives a guy the bookworm look, but in a way that’s bound to attract some admirers.
Best for: Oval and square face shapes
Celeb Fans: Johnny Depp, Kit Harrington, Paul Bettany
Blame it on Harry Potter or the big geek-chic fashion trend, but the round-shaped-glasses look is going strong in menswear. Round glasses are definitely not the easiest to pull off unless you have a seriously square jaw or heart-shaped face to balance the frames. If you don't want to go for a fashion-forward John Lennon-style round shape, try ones that have a wider browline and frame on top. Magical powers or not, stylish round-shaped glasses will give any guy a smart look, even if it won’t raise your IQ points.
The Vibe: Classic with a dash of Clark Kent vibes, square glasses are a sure bet for timeless masculine style.
Best for: Round, oblong, and oval face shapes
Celebrity Fans: Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Chris Pine
It’s always hip to be square with this classic frame style that can range from a rectangular shape to a more wayfarer-type style that looks good on most men. While you might not have a Superman costume on under your 9-to-5 work duds, rocking the stylish square glasses will make you look professional AF, like a classic Clark Kent. Go full Buddy Holly with seriously thick acetate black frames, or go for clear frames for a less defined look. There are so many variations on square-style glasses that any guy with an oblong, round, or oval face is sure to find a pair he’ll want to make a part of his signature look.
The Vibe: ‘70s swagger to sport from day to boogie nights for serious confidence. These far out shades are all you need to turn heads.
Best for: Square, oval, heart-shaped, and oblong face shapes
Celebrity Fans: Robert Downey Jr., Tom Ford, Justin Bieber
Disco might be dead, but this ‘70s eyewear trend is alive and thriving. While the stylish glasses have always been a hit with men for sunglasses, the eyewear trend came back from the dead when it appeared on Gucci’s Spring 2016 runway, and now even an average Joe can be seen rocking the look. Aviators have one of the most flattering shapes for eyewear, and they give your look (even if it’s just a T-shirt and jeans) some instant cool factor. No one should wear sunglasses at night, but completing your look for a night out with these stylish frames is gold for some extra swagger.
The best part of stylish glasses is that you don’t have to just stick to one vibe or pair of eyeglasses. Try the styles that work for your face and create a collection that has something for every mood and occasion. You’ll be saying, “Eye can’t believe I didn’t get these sooner!”
