Major Frames

Is everyone suddenly currently channeling Buddy Holly? Well, not quite, but we have noticed that glasses have been enjoying a sudden surge of popularity with famous faces. It's particularly funny in these Lasik-filled days that "frame shame" has finally disappeared and we're seeing thick, chunky, eyewear on everyone from trendy youngsters (like Daisy Lowe) to sophisticates (like Cate Blanchett).

Obviously these major frames are not the most subtle way to correct one's vision-quite the opposite, obviously-as they're bold enough to get their own story! If you do decide to make the leap, we suggest you choose an Accessory Report-worthy pair. Readers who like a classic look should search for RB5121 frames. This is the Original Wayfarer shape and it comes in several shades including black and tortoise ($171.91). You can always go vintage for that Chloe Sevigny look. Start the search by browsing the endless selection at Allyn Scura, Decades Vintage (in Portland, not LA), or the wonderfully named Eye Been Framed. Just remember to check with your ophthalmologist before investing in an amazing pair, as not all prescription lenses will fit into vintage frames.
