If you ever thought your eyeglass was just a practical aid to help you with your eyesight, think again. In a world that requires people to take their images more and more seriously, even eyeglasses have become the latest fashion accessories. They are made with different styles and tagged with top international brand names and shipped to the farthest end of the world where people relentlessly seek that fashionable look everyday.

Although they have always been placed more emphasis on fit, comfort and durability of eyeglasses, men are also concerned with style. It is universally believed that the right pair of eyeglasses can tremendously improve the wearers’ overall image, therefore choosing men’s glasses becomes an important matter. The right glasses can help him shape an intellectual, wise and trustworthy image, while the less than perfect ones can only hide all the metrics and magnify the flaws of his physical features. To choose the right pair of eyeglasses, one needs to acquaint himself with the latest trends. Only in this way can he avoid wearing glasses that went out of fashion twenty some years ago.

Men’s eyeglasses have come a long way. While some styles seem to stay fashionable all the time, others evolve. One example of the former is the retro eyeglasses. Worn by people of all age groups, these glasses will simply never be out of fashion. Another style that is making a comeback is those round John Lennon eyeglasses. 25 years later, they are still around and very much loved all over the world.

While some types of eyeglasses manage to stay in the spotlight, the overall trend in men’s eyeglasses is always evolving. Recently, men’s frame style has become much more bold and masculine. Manly shapes such as aviator glasses and double brow-bar styles have re-emerged, however, made with newer and often more durable materials. While larger and bolder frames shapes are always in, be careful not to go too big if you have a small face. Besides masculine and bold frames, rimless and semi-rimless styles also become popular with people who want a modern or minimalist look. Combined with anti-reflective lenses, eyeglasses with these styles practically disappear from the wearer’s face, giving out a more clean and minimal look. For a younger, hip or retro look, many people are turning back to plastic. Lightweight and comfortable, plastic frames are creating another craze among youngsters despite of their drawbacks of being easy to break.
