Nerd is the new sexy! Thanks to cultural icons John Lennon, Harry Potter, Johnny Depp, etc., round glasses with a true nerdy vibe are the coolest accessory. Celebrities and eyewear enthusiasts have had a love affair with round glasses for the longest. Round frames for glasses tend to create an intellectual aura around you and conjure a strong nostalgic vintage vibe.
Unlike other classic styles like wayfarers, aviators, etc., round glasses have been around since the inception of eyeglasses, with records dating back to the 13th century. Yes, we meant ancient vintage when we said they had a vintage vibe. Whether it is a sleek metal frame (think John Lennon or Harry Potter), rimless (think Steve Jobs), or chunky acetate frames (think Tom Holland), elegant round glasses are timeless styles that have only evolved with time but are never forgotten. And if you are ready to jump on that bandwagon, we have some amazing options for round frames for glasses that neither compromise on style nor make you question the price, so let’s get on with it!
We will kick off this list with a sexy pair of full-rimmed round glasses. A huge trend in the 80s is that double-bridge frames are now back, and it looks like they are here to stay! Inspired by the style of the OGs – the aviators and clubmaster sunglasses, these blue metal frames sport a double-bridge with a thick upper rim, tapering down to a narrower thin metal rim on the bottom half of the frame. Additionally, the stainless-steel body makes the frames light as a feather, snugly fitting around your face to create an effortless look.
For a 20s-inspired look, a classic sleek circular frame like this would help you achieve that intellectual, scholarly look. Whether you consider them collegiate cool or geek chic, you cannot go wrong when opting for a pair of these statement round glasses. Equal parts nerdy and stylish, these full-rimmed gun metal frames would go with all your daytime and night-time outfits.
