Here at Online Glasses Review, it goes without saying that we think Warby Parker is the best online brand of affordable and stylish glasses. As our #1 rated retailer, it’s clear they’re onto something. The popularity of their glasses have exploded since the company launched, and they’ve opened several brick and mortar stores around the country.
To help you choose between the latest and greatest, we decided to pick our favorite frame each month in both mens and womens styles.
Men January 2020
If this isn’t the year for 20/20 vision, I don’t know what is. So get the new decade off to the right start – get an eye exam, and maybe a new pair of prescription specs like this high quality silver titanium pair. It’s got rounded rectangular lenses, adjustable nosepads, and is so lightweight you’ll barely know you’re wearing glasses.
Women January 2020
The Amelia is an easy cat eye frame with gentle sloping curves all around. The pretty color is like my favorite New Year’s Eve drink – rose champagne! This one is just as nice – except without the bubbles. Even with prescription lenses, you’re spending less than $100 all-in, which is still less than a couple good bottles. 🙂
Men December 2019
Well, here are we guys and gals. End of the year, end of the 2010’s! Time to use up those remaining FSA monies and get yourself some new specs to ring in the new decade. The Watts is a classic round lens number in a gorgeous slate-gray grain that’s sure to make you look smart. It’s available in narrow and medium fits, as well as a couple other colors.
Women December 2019
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t use a great pair of sunglasses. And boy did we fall for the stunning Leta with it’s retro cat eye style and magnificent dark tortoise color. Did you know you can use FSA dollars towards prescription sunglasses? If you’ve got some leftover funds that won’t roll over into 2020, this would be a great way to use those dollars up.
Men November 2019
There’s no need to feel or look glum as we move into the colder months. You can still be fresh-faced and clear as day in this crystal frame with trapezoidal lenses. Bryon’s wide temples cover broader faces perfectly, and it’s easy on the budget at $95 including single-vision lenses. Try them on for free to see if they fit you.
Women November 2019
The pinkish color of this frame in rose gold is quite apropos as it reminds me of a sweet Georgia peach! I personally prefer Warby Parker’s metal frames since they fit my face better, and the Georgia is no exception. The subtle cat eye lift at the temples is always appreciated for that feminine flair.
Men October 2019
We’re going black and bold for the guys this month with the round Hugo, which comes in a wide fit. The gold hinges give it a splash of flair so it’s not just a plain ol’ black pair of glasses. Made of acetate and stainless steel, the frame is solidly built and goes with all looks from casual to cocktail.
Women October 2019
The Whalen is a classic round-frame with subtle scalloping on the bridge for a little something extra, but not too much. The translucent dark blue color works especially well on fairer skin, and accentuates your peepers. For less than a Benjamin, you can get this pair complete with prescription lenses, UV-blocking, anti-scratch, and anti-reflective coatings, all included.
Men September 2019
Go back to school in style this month with the rounded rectangular lenses of this wire frame. It’s stainless steel construction is light, comfortable, and easy to wear. The Wilcox, like all Warby Parker metal frames, comes with adjustable nosepads for a secure, non-slip fit. OGR Tip: These frames work best with thinner lenses. If you have a strong prescription, consider getting a high-index lens, which are 20% thinner.
Women September 2019
Part of Warby Parker’s Italian-made Sesia Collection, the Saylor is a sophisticated gold frame with a tortoise shell layered on the top half. It has beautiful detailing, comfortable nosepads, and streamlined temple arms. Also comes in a cool blue crystal silver too.
Men August 2019
It’s almost back-to-school time (boohoo!). You won’t shed any tears over your new look with this rectangular frame though. With it’s keyhole nose bridge and red-fade undertone, you’ll be seeing and looking sharp. At $95 all-in including single-vision lenses, this one’s a keeper for all seasons.
Women August 2019
Warby Parker’s Sadie in Riverbed Tortoise is your classic round-lens frame, but with a funky twist of color in the tortoise shell. Blue is my favorite color, so I’ll wear it any day. Make the most of your dollars by using your FSA/HSA or vision insurance when paired with prescription lenses.
Men July 2019
One of their most popular styles, Hughes is a square-shaped acetate frame that comes in a variety of, ahem, hues, as well as sizes. Our favorite this month is the translucent striped light-brown version for the lazy days of summer. The Chestnut Crystal also comes in a narrow version if the medium is too wide for your face.
Women July 2019
Warby Parker’s Jane is a versatile round pair that comes in a couple of fun clear versions. There’s this one with the violet inner rim, or the Crystal with Oak Barrel, which sports a light brown rim. Time to up the game – they’re not just your standard clear frame glasses anymore!
Men June 2019
More fun in the sun continues in June! Designed in collaboration with Chloë Sevigny, the Tate is a wide-fit round frame that exudes classic style. The dark blue lenses are 100% UV-blocking and are also polarized to reduce glare. Get these as is, or with prescription lenses for $80 more.
Women June 2019
The Phoebe in Lapis Crystal is sophisticated elegance defined. The oversize cat eye provides 100% UV-blocking protection and is great for everyday use with it’s gradient lenses and sturdy construction. It also comes in Pearl Tortoise, which comes with a mirrored bronze lens. Available in both prescription and non-prescription, you can try it on at home for free.

The dark tortoise shell frame is accentuated with a gold bridge and brow bar, and comes in a roomy wide fit. Too cool for school, this one will make all your friends green with envy!

Ladies, ladies, ladies. There isn’t much that needs to be said about the gorgeous Sylvie in Jet Black. A timeless cat eye with a gold brow bar and bridge, you’ll be extra chic this summer with this pair. These sunglasses also come in Onyx Tortoise for an extra splash of color and flair.
Men April 2019
This month, we’re in the mood for some sophisticated wire frames. The silver Cole has a nicely detailed hinge, round lenses, and light tortoise temple tips. Made of stainless steel, we like how lightweight it is, with adjustable nosepads to sit perfectly atop your nose bridge. Prescription lenses are included, or add $100 for light-responsive lenses that turn eyeglasses into sunglasses.
Women April 2019
The Carey in Petal Tortoise is a great half-rim pair for the studious look plus a little flair. The acetate frame is complimented with gold round lenses and comes in a medium fit. Also available in a darker cognac tortoise.
Men March 2019

Here at OGR we’re suffering a bit from the winter blues. We’ve picked a couple of blue-colored frames this month, but that remind us of the ocean and the beach! For the guys, the perfectly round lens of the Butler in Shoreline Fade warms our heart and soul. At $95 with prescription lenses, this one is a great choice that doesn’t put a huge dent in your wallet.
Women February 2019
Gals, it’s time for a little boldness with the Sullivan in Saltwater Matte. We love the deep rich hue that is further accentuated by the brown temple arms. Available in a medium fit, this little number also comes in a classic Whiskey Tortoise.
Men January 2019
We’re starting off 2019 with flair and going with the handsome Lyle in a gorgeous sea-gray translucent hue. A classic round lens frame, this pair comes in a narrow fit and beautifully highlights fine features.
