The latest fashion trend sweeping the nation are clear frame glasses that bring a new refreshing look to any face!

Clear frame glasses give you the feeling of invisibility, but at the same time make you very noticeable. Round or rectangular frames, it does not matter as long as they fit you and your style. We recommend you choose frames that do not cover your eyebrows (otherwise you will look like you don’t have eyebrows).

Clear frames glasses are also very popular among celebrities like Ashlee Simpson, Selma Blair, Gigi Hadid and many others.

If you want to bring a small but important change to your life, picking the perfect pair of clear frames will surely make it far more interesting – just like every change does, whether it’s your hairstyle or wardrobe.

The Coolness Factor

While they were not clear frames, remember how distinctive Clark Kent’s eyeglasses were?  You know them as well as you know the “S” on his chest. 

Clear eyeglass frames have been around for many years, but have recently gained significant popularity.  The best clear frame glasses are generally invisible from a distance; they fit any face and outfit. 

And they are the latest fashion trend.  Here are some tips that will help you show off and look like a celebrity in your new, clear frames.

  • Choosing the shape is often just a matter of taste. However, if you want to have a method to the madness, frames that have the opposite shape of your face are best from a pure fashion standpoint.  If you have a round face, think square or rectangular frames.  A square face is perfect for the ever-recognizable round frame, and if you have an oval face, you are blessed because you can go with many shapes
  • Dark color clothes tend to lead the eye away from your face so a light color outfit will attract more attention to those gorgeous baby blues, now highlighted with clear frames
  • Lighter makeup is also going to draw attention to your frames
  • Go big! Larger, clear frames don’t hide your face like the bigger dark color frames, and large frames work with any face shape

Clear frames have been around for a while, but no one really gave them much thought.

Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian West, Rita Ora, Megan Fox, Katy Perry and Marilyn Monroe wore the clear frames, which resulted in this awesome trend everyone has been talking about lately!

How to Pick the Perfect Clear Frame Glasses

Picking a perfect frame can be exhausting, but finding a perfect clear frame can be even worse if you have no idea what you really require.

When picking a new frame, always make sure it fits your face silhouette and do not force yourself to wear something pretty just because it is pretty.

Clear frames can do a lot of good, but they can also do a lot of bad if the shape doesn’t fit your face. Make sure your glasses match your style and are comfortable to wear – you do not want headaches after an hour so keep that in mind!

Benefits of Clear Frames

Wearing even the best clear frame glasses can sometimes come with a bit of a stigma, especially if you’re a kid. 

The little angels aren’t always as kind as we’d like, are they?  So, before you start worrying about have four eyes, there are a lot of benefits to the additional two eyes! 

And like we said earlier, clear frames are hard to see from a distance.  You will:

  • See better and more clearly
  • Make a fashion statement
  • Display your unique personality
  • Love the neutral coloring of clear frames (by the way, these are one of the most popular eyewear trends for 2017 and considered very cool, experts also describe clear frames as “forever funky”)
  • Look fabulous
  • Find that glasses are readily available
  • Have added protection for your eyes
  • See that glasses are easier and more fun that contacts
