Oversized Glasses: Go Big or Go Home!

Post date:



The bigger, the better when it comes to oversized glasses!

Realistically, how big is too big? There is no such thing according to us! Glasses may be a small accessory, but they are a big deal – the right pair can boost your look and style. Oversized glasses reign king in the frame world, they scream for attention and can be completely outlandish, all while modestly covering your face. This style has come into vogue over the last few decades when ugly-chic and retro styles started to take the spotlight over traditional smaller prescription eyeglasses.

After spending the year inside, we have compiled a list of our favorite oversized looks, so you don’t have to and you can get back out there! We have put together a few styles that will work for anyone, both men’s and women’s oversized glasses frames:


Ray-Ban oversized wayfarer glasses 

Ray-Ban RX5387F Asian Fit 2012 – Ray-Ban glasses are a cult classic and one of the most famous optical brands out there today. It is no wonder we are picking their beloved oversized wayfarer glasses for our list. This oversized glasses frame is available in classic black, so they will match anyone’s style. This frame is perfect for daily wear, they look sharp at work or impressive for any occasion. The magic behind Ray-Ban is their ability to produce effortless cool for both men and women alike. They seem to always have their finger on the zeitgeist, and remain a favorite for the traditional and old school generation – these frames are for everyone and anyone.

The black plastic and gold metal frames are adorable and trendy. This look will look great styled up or down, the boxy shape is inspired. The thin “Y” shaped earpieces feature the classic “GG” Gucci logo in a pale gold tone and a black and gold striped pattern.
