Frame Friday: Fan Favorites

Recently, our Facebook fans duked it out in a frame fight. Here is the winner… along with the runners-up. While several of these styles are very different from others, they are also frames that will definitely get you noticed.

 

Red and white polka dot glasses online | Zenni Optical
 
Affectionately dubbed “Dottie” by our Facebook fans, this pair of red polka dot frames is just too cute for words. While I wouldn’t recommend pairing them with a polka dotted outfit (that’s just too many dots to connect) these could definitely liven up an outfit made up of solid colors. Red not your color? No worries, these frames are available in four different colors, making it easy to find the pair that best suits your wardrobe.

 

Round Tortoiseshell Glasses from Zenni
 
These frames stand out because of their circular shape: Not every face shape can wear something like these, but if you are looking to soften a long, angular face, give this pair a try.

 

 

Black Cat Eye Glasses - Buy Online from Zenni
 
Cat’s eye glasses are always in style, particularly when paired with pumps and a pencil skirt. This sleek pair is downright bewitching, though, with full coverage of the entire eye area. Try them as sunglasses!

 

Cat Eye Glasses with sparkle from Zenni
 
Here’s a narrower set of cat’s eyes with a twist: Sparkle dust in each corner. These make great special occasion glasses, of course, but I’d recommend wearing them whenever you just are feeling special. Like this coming Tuesday, for instance.  Bonus: With the curved frame and sparkly stuff, you won’t have to wear much eye makeup with this pair.

 

Pink Glasses from Zenni Optical
 
These pink frames with metal temples offer a subtle, professional look, particularly for folks who don’t like brightly colored or patterned frames, but want something a bit more exciting than just metal.

 

 

Tortoiseshell Rectangle Glasses from Zenni

 

These rectangular, full-rim glasses can give your eyes a lot of coverage (try them as sunglasses) but also have a decidedly feminine twist: A little bow on each temple! This is a classic look that can take you from the office to the beach and back again, so it may make sense to pick up a couple of these plastic frames to keep around your home and office.

Frame Friday: Back to School

Yes, it’s that time of year. Time to savor the last days of freedom and spend time with friends and family. It’s also time to update your wardrobe, so don’t forget to take a critical look at your eyeglasses: Zenni has a huge selection of frames and colors, so be sure to pick out a pair or two that will not only help you study, but make sure you look great while doing it.
 
Bonus Savings: Use coupon code SCHOOL10 at check-out to get 10% off your order. Hurry, though, because this offer expires on August 15th, 2014.
 

 
Not ready to leave summer behind? Try out these wayfarer full-rim glasses in green with orange accents. (The bright colors remind me of a picnic table set with Fiestaware.) Wear these on the first day of classes and make a statement!
 

 
Do you start off the school year feeling a bit shy? Get adventurous with a pair of full-rim acetate frames in either red or blue plaid: Add these to an otherwise conservative, solid-color outfit and you’ll definitely shine.
 

 
These sturdy, acetate frames are accented with subtle stripes, making them far more interesting than plain frames, but without being too distracting.
 

 
Now here is a cool look for Fall: These plastic wayfarers come in some nifty colors, but the clear frames with orange temples is really something else. Wear them to match the fall foliage and they’ll take you all the way to Halloween in style!
 

 
Are all these colors a bit too much ? That’s OK, check out these rectangle frames in a super-cool woodgrain pattern. (Also comes in black.) This may not be the pair for everyone, but it may be the pair for you.
 

 
These wayfarers come in six colors, at since they start at only $15.95 a pair, you can get several to match any outfit. Another option is to select frames that match your school colors! Seriously: This frame is an updated classic that can carry you through the school year, so stock up while taking advantage of the school10 savings code!

Frame Friday: Nerdy Chic for Comic-Con

super hero style glasses
In honor of Comic-Con, we thought we’d highlight some nerdy chic frames that feature some interesting textures, shapes and colors. Wear these and show off your geek pride!
 
(Don’t need glasses? Don’t worry, all of these frames can be ordered with non-prescription lenses.)
 

Wayfarers

Wayfarers are classics, which is probably why game developers and comics writers/artists add them to their characters. Here are two updated wayfarers that are great for cosplay, but are sure to make you stand out from the crowd:
 

 
These sleek Gordon Freeman-style wayfarers seem to be super-conservative, until you look a little closer and spy those cool metal details on the temples. If you wanted to get even more bold and original, try the tortoiseshell version. Either way, these acetate frames are sturdy and flattering and will carry you from con to boardroom with ease
 

 
Clark Kent’s wayfarers are really just a clever disguise: Superman has x-ray vision after all, and hardly needs prescription lenses. Still,  those thick black frames give Clark Kent some reasonable cover and probably make people take him seriously. These plastic full rim wayfarers may look ordinary, but check out those temples. They’re accented with a crisscross diamond pattern that lets people know there’s more to you than might immediately meet the eye.
 

Anime Looks

Love anime?  Get the look you want with these whimsical styles from Zenni.
 

 
Electric blue frames with a double bar nose bridge will definitely get you noticed. Sure, you could go with the more conservative brown version, but what would be the point?
 

 
Feeling feline-ish? There’s nothing subtle about these highly styled cat’s-eye frames. Choose between black or tortoiseshell.
 

 
Feeling quirky? (Or more quirky than usual?) Check out these plaid frames. Yes, they’re from the Valentine’s Day collection, but we all need love year-round.
 

 
Girls just want to have fun, and Zenni sells these frames to prove it. Who wouldn’t have fun wearing one of these frames (in blue, black, red or green) speckled with tiny white polka-dots? In fact, who wouldn’t have fun looking at someone wearing these glasses?

Frame Friday: Trendy Summer Frames

One of the great benefits of buying your frames from Zenni is that you save so much money that you afford a wardrobe of frames. Sure, there are times where you want to stick to basics, but it’s also fun being able to keep your coworkers and friends guessing by regularly showing up in new and cool glasses.
 
We’ve still got some summer left, so let’s have a look at some trendy summer frames that you can add to your collection:
 

Cool blue wayfarer style frames, combined with 80s style artwork on the temples, will definitely capture attention on the beach, at work or in the beer garden. Pair these with some colorful plastic jewelry and you’ll  remind Gen X’rs of when MTV actually played music videos.
 

Do you remember Jolly Rancher candies?  Expect some flashbacks when wearing these gorgeous, clear frames  in eye-popping fuchsia or yellow. Cat-eye style is flattering to many face shapes, and the clear, bright colors keep things on the light side for summer.
 

Half-rim glasses let you maintain some gravitas while not overpowering your face. These classic half-rims are even more interesting when you order them in red. . .looks great with a tan!
 

Maybe not everyone can carry off these plastic frames with a stained-glass look, but if you can, go for it! These would look great paired with a colorful sundress and strappy sandals.
 

 
Outdoorsy type? These frames may look no-nonsense at first, but note the cool cutouts along the temples. This pair offers you the sturdiness you need while hiking and camping, but they’ll never make you look boring.
 

Want to learn a secret for giving your nose a more graceful appearance? Keyhole bridge frames open up a bit more at the nose, making it look longer and more elegant. Try these full rims as regular or sunglasses and see what you think. For a more interesting look, select the blue frames!

World Cup fans are excited about the semi-finals match between Germany and Argentina! For fun, we decided to have a look at some frames that feature the colors of each team. Enjoy!
 

Germany

Root for Germany in these red and gold full-rim glasses. The floral detail on the temples gives them a wonderfully feminine look.

Keep it casual with these yellow and red plastic full-rim glasses. I love how the red and yellow come together to look like flames!

Looking for something more formal? These plastic full-rims in red with yellow/gold accents fit the bill nicely. The cat eye style is ultra-feminine and will certainly get you noticed at school, the office and while out with friends!

 

Argentina

 
blue glasses
 
Argentina fans take note: These dreamy blue frames look great against a tan and will put everyone in mind of the beach! A great summer casual look.

Are any of your children Argentina fans? These sporty glasses are great looking and can take the beatings that active kids can give.

 

light blue glasses

Get down to business with these stainless steel full rim glasses. This is a very conservative design, but the subtle blue accent makes these glasses a lot more interesting than if they were just plain silvertone.
