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 2023

Oliver in Sea Glass Grey

Try On Virtually

Happy freakin’ new year y’alls. What better way to start the new year than with a brand-spanking new pair of specs? If you’re tired of oversize frames that make you look like you’re wearing goggles, the Oliver is the perfect size for narrow faces. A classic rectangle frame with clean lines and lots of class.

It also comes in multiple colors, so if crystal isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other hues to choose from.

Women January 2023

Celia in Polished Gold

If you’re looking for something a little different to start off the new year, consider a geometric frame like the Celia. The octagonal eyewire is funkier than your usual round, square, or rectangular shapes (and works great for adding some angles to round faces).

This oversize frame is best for wide or broad faces and will definitely spruce up your look for a fun, unique vibe.

Men December 2022

Tierney in Brioche Tortoise

Love the double brow bar look? Get it with the super suave Tierney as a holiday gift to yourself. It fits most average-size faces and includes single-vision Rx lenses with anti-scratch and anti-glare coatings at no extra cost. Try it on virtually to see how you look with it.

Women December 2022

Santiago in Hudson Blue Fade

We love a good two-tone frame because of the subtle way it defines your face without overpowering it with too much chunkiness. The dark tortoise blended with a blue fade makes for a great color combo, and the extra width in this frame ensures a comfy, roomy fit for wider faces.

Men November 2022

Callum in Balsam Matte

The Callum is a sturdy, lightweight work of art made of TR90 nylon in Japan, making it nearly indestructible. It’s a wide-fit round frame in a gorgeous matte deep green. A slim profile keeps the bulk to a minimum, and it’s even available to order for a free test drive at home.

Women November 2022

Shirley in Polished Chrome

Warby Parker’s newest titanium collection features some great frames including this beaut of a cat eye. The retro styling is sophisticated and ultra comfortable to wear. Adjustable nosepads and the featherweight lightness make it a winner (not to mention, single-vision Rx lenses are included).

Men October 2022

James in Carbon

Sleek and sophisticated, the James is a semi-rimless browline pair that’s perfectly subtle yet commanding when worn. The rectangular shape is great for adding some angles to a round face or drawing the eye upward to balance out a longer one.

It comes in medium and wide so it’s roomy enough for those with larger noggins (try it on for free at home if you’re not sure). Single-vision prescription lenses are included in the price, and we’d recommend upgrading to the 1.67-index lens if you have a high prescription.

Women October 2022

Sonia in Oak Barrel

If the Sonia were a TV soap, it’d definitely be “The Bold and the Beautiful”. A thick square frame that exudes style and boldness, it makes a statement like no other with a rich, oak tortoise color.

Great for broader faces, it’s also available in jet black, and is a steal for less than $100 all-in including single-vision Rx lenses.

Men September 2022

Hayden Low Bridge Fit in Striped Pacific

It’s nice to finally have a larger selection of low-bridge or alternative-fit glasses on the market these days. Warby Parker only started out with a handful in the beginning, but they now have a decent selection, including the Hayden. It’s got slightly curved temples and less of a lens tilt for a comfortable fit that won’t sit on your cheekbones or slide down your nose all the time.

Women September 2022

Alford in Inkwell Crystal Fade

The Alford will instantly give you that studious look to go with that oversize or turtleneck sweater you’ve got just waiting around for the cooler weather. The two-tone gray and clear frame is the perfect neutral to go with anything – and it’s even available for you to try at home for free.

If you prefer something more eye-catching, it’s also available in a colorful teal tortoise. Or get both and save 15% on two Rx pairs!

Men August 2022

Braswell in Brushed Ink

Why does August and the specter of back to school always seem to come so quickly? In any case, if you need some new specs and like the wireframe type, perhaps the rectangular Braswell will suit you. It’s a bookishly-intellectual frame made from stainless steel and and has simple, clean lines.

Adjustable PVC nosepads provide a customizable fit as well as grip so they don’t slip down your nose. If you want something brighter, it’s also available in a golden bronze hue as well.

Women August 2022

Tally in Himalayan Salt Matte

So you’re an active rough-and-tumble gal? Say no more, you need some durable glasses that won’t fall apart on you if you accidentally drop or smack them. From Warby Parker’s new Everywhere Series, the Tally is made of lightweight and strong TR-90 nylon, which is the material of choice for lots of safety glasses.

Paired with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses, the Tally will hold up with your active lifestyle from morning til bedtime.

Men July 2022

Kian in Starling Crystal with Polished Silver

One of Warby Parker’s “Staff Picks”, the Kian is a crowd-pleaser that mixes acetate lenses with metal temple arms. A keyhole bridge, double rivets at the temples, and tortoise-colored tips make this a winner for all occasions.

As always, single-vision Rx lenses are included in the cost of the frame. Wondering how they’ll look on you? Try ’em on virtually with Warby Parker’s impressive iOS app.

Women July 2022

Fara in Iris Crystal with Riesling

Oooh child, have we got a beaut here with the elegant Fara in a clear lavender and metal stunner. The nice thing about cat eyeglasses like this one is that it looks great on nearly every face shape. It comes in a medium or wide width, and lots of lens options including blue-light blocking, anti-fatigue and light-adjusting.

Men June 2022

Downing in Hudson Blue Fade

Add some flair to your shades with the two-tone Downing in Hudson Blue Fade. The tortoise browline and temples pair perfectly with the blue accent and in this round frame.

A bluish-gray tint rounds out the ensemble with 100% UV protection. It’s available in narrow and medium widths, as well as several other color combos. Try them on for size with the free home try-on.

Women June 2022

Janelle in Praline

A little retro, a lotta style is what the Janelle sunglass frame is. The cream-colored cat eye frame is paired with gradient brown-tinted lenses for an ultra-luxe, ultra-sophisticated air. This is a wide frame that works well if you have a broad face.

Men May 2022

Callen in Jet Black with Polished Silver

The trapezoidal shape lens on this frame may not seem that special at first glance, but boy can it look great on. The angled inner rim follows the contour of the nose as it widens towards the bottom, giving you plenty of visual surface area. It comes in a wide width – perfect for those with broad faces.

Women May 2022

Della in Viridian

Want to enhance your baby blues with something special? The Della in a seagreen-colored crystal might be just the thing. Bold and substantial, it’s a medium chunky frame that makes a statement without overwhelming your face.

Men April 2022

Morley in Brioche Tortoise with Riesling

No one likes their head to feel pinched when wearing glasses. That won’t be a problem with the Morley frame, which is nice and roomy (140mm across from temple to temple) for those with broad faces. A mixed material frame made from acetate and stainless steel, it’s sturdy and easy to wear with just about anything.

Women April 2022

Mateo in Azure Crystal with Blue Lagoon

Not your standard 2-tone frame, the Mateo combines a darker translucent navy color against a pop of lighter blue behind the lenses. The fun detail makes it interesting enough but won’t draw away from your features. A keyhole bridge finishes the ensemble (and of course, single-vision Rx lenses are included).

Men March 2022

Braden in Dove Grey

Who doesn’t need some time in the sun (especially nowadays)? Naturally, you’ll need a pair of shades to protect those peepers. If you like the 70’s King of Cool vibe a la The Thomas Crown Affair, you might want to consider the Braden with it’s retro aviator lens shape. Try it on virtually with Warby Parker’s iOS app.

Women March 2022

Jordi in Oxblood with Striped Elm

Ooh child, if oversized sunnies and sophisticated style are your thing, the Jordi is right up your alley. The deep rich red paired with gradient lenses ooze luxury and class, and take any outfit from ordinary to va-va-voom. Like all of their glasses, you can also customize them with Rx lenses (and even choose a different lens color if so).

Men February 2022

Donovan in Root Beer

Who doesn’t like looking smart? That’s how you’ll look wearing the classic rectangle Donovan frame. The light tortoise color brightens any face, or go for something a bit more smoldering in a crystal green/tortoise combo. Whatever you choose, your wallet will thank you – it’s less than $100 all-in including single-vision Rx lenses.

Women February 2022

Laurel in Tea Rose Fade

If you’re looking for a pair of glasses with just a touch of sass, consider the two-tone Laurel. Asymmetrical round lenses make it more interesting than your standard round circle frame. And the dark upper half helps highlight your eyes without weighing them down.

Men January 2022

Locke in Layered Sky Blue Crystal

Normally, we don’t choose the latest “flavor of the month” when it comes to our fave Warby Parker frames, but we made an exception for their new layered crystal collection. It’s bold, it’s trendy, and it’ll make heads turn with a “what-what?”. Now that’s the way to start a new year!

Women January 2022

Lydell in Truffle Tortoise

The Lydell is so feminine with it’s uplifted teardrop lens. The frame is perfect for smaller faces too – it comes in extra narrow and narrow sizes for those with petite features. Try it on virtually with Warby Parker’s iOS app or try the real thing on in the comfort of your own home with the free Home Try-On.
