Why change a good thing? They're called the classics for a reason, after all. Classic glasses frames are super sophisticated and won't be found with complex design elements or bright colors. These timeless frames combine simple, yet elegant design with neutral colors.
We know glitz and glam doesn't strike everyone's fancy, so we offer over 100 standard classic eyeglasses. We've compiled all of the tried and true — not to mention, our most popular — frames at EyeBuyDirect.
The lenses are obviously the most important part of your eyeglasses, so you can tell us exactly what you need in terms of vision correction. We offer lenses for near and far-sighted correction, along with astigmatism correction and prism lenses to adjust eye orientation. Your classic eyeglasses should be as functional as they are classy!
Choosing the Perfect Color for Your Classic Eyeglasses
We have a few different colors available for your classic glasses frames. Black is an unmistakably elegant choice. Gold metal frames and tortoiseshell definitely fall into this category, so try out a few options before you make your decision.
Customizing Your Lenses
In addition to adding a prescription, you can customize the lenses for your classic eyewear in a variety of ways. Blue light blocking lenses keep your eyes safe from harmful blue light given off by digital screens. Transitions® lenses darken in sunlight, making them a super-convenient choice for your classic eyeglasses.
3 Style Tips for Classic Glasses Frames
Take Your Face Shape into Account
Knowing the ideal frame for your face shape can help you decide which classic eyeglass styles will suit you. Rounder faces look best with more angular styles of frames, while square-shaped faces work with rounder lenses. Check out our face shapes guide for a more detailed explanation.
Choose the Style For the Occasion
The understated aesthetic of classic eyewear means most of these frames are perfect for any occasion, but if you’re looking for the ideal classic glasses frames for the boardroom, consider a solid black pair with simple style features. For a less formal situation, you can experiment with bright colors and more daring shapes.
Classic glasses styles eschew all embellishments to let the understated design elements speak for themselves. Stepping out of your comfort zone in terms of style is easy with classic glasses frames. Try something you’ve never worn before with our Try On feature, and experiment with your style!
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
