Oh you fancy, huh? We love the way elevated eyewear can take your style to the next level. Like any qualifier having to do with style, ‘sophisticated eyewear’ can be subjective, but there are a few guidelines that have withstood the test of time. Sophisticated glasses feature sleek shapes, smooth lines, luxurious colors, and refined materials. When in doubt, go understated. Sophisticated eyeglasses generally don’t feature bright colors, chunky frames, or statement-making shapes. This category of eyewear keeps it subtle and streamlined, to add a dose of sophisticated poise to your wardrobe.
Our Sophisticated eyeglass frames selection covers a considerable amount of shapes and styles, so take the time to browse our full section! With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find a pair that suits you to a T.
Black eyeglasses are super sophisticated. Dark-colored frames stand out without stealing the show and as an added bonus, are an easy to color match with, as they’re neutral. A tortoiseshell frame is also a safe bet when you want the sophisticated look. This pattern is timeless and great for adding a classic touch to your sophisticated eyeglasses collection.
For next-level sophisticated eyeglass frames, square or rectangular shapes are ideal. These are one of the most formal and intellectual-looking shapes of eyewear, perfect for a pair of sophisticated men or women’s glasses. Rimless eyeglasses are another choice for classy styles. These minimalist frames are equal parts trendy and sophisticated.
Sophisticated glasses deserve sophisticated materials, naturally. Acetate is a type of plant-based plastic that’s ideal for eyeglass frames. It’s skin-friendly, durable and can be created in practically any color. Titanium eyeglasses are another premium choice. This metal is famously tough and lightweight, to boot, while always looking refined.
Premium lenses for sophisticated eyewear
Blue light blocking lenses
Sophisticated eyeglasses are perfectly suited for an office environment. If you spend a lot of time in front of a computer screen at work, adding a blue light blocking coating to your lenses is smart. Evidence shows that too much blue light during the day can make it more difficult to fall asleep at night.
Lightweight high-index lenses
If you have a strong prescription, the thicker lenses you’ll typically need can also limit the type of frames you can choose. Many of our sophisticated glasses styles feature sleek and narrow frames which are unsuitable for thick lenses. A high index lens can be made with strong prescriptions without being too thick, perfect for your new sophisticated eyeglass frames.
Adaptive Transitions® lenses
Transition lenses automatically adjust their tint depending on the surrounding brightness. With this lens technology, your stylish eyeglasses will dynamically transform into sunglasses. Why not make your new sophisticated eyeglasses sunglasses, too?
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
