New designs featuring cat eye or oval shapes are the height of fashion now. They're made with acetate rim and a single thin or thick round metal bridge. There are endless possibilities for colors, textures, and patterns. With a durable stainless steel or memory bridge, these solid bridges eliminate nose pads and guard arms. They mimic the fit and feel of plastic frames while providing all the advantages of a metal one. These are perfect for unique, retro-vintage and hipster people.
If you have a high nose bridge, aim for frames with a bridge in line or close to the browline. Short and straight bridge frames hug all the right places feeling great. Nose pads should rest on the sides of the nose and not directly on the slope in between the eyes. Designers use larger nose pads to ensure the frame sits with zero tension and slipping.
The classic double bridge aviator style meets the 21st century. This style features flat or curved metal bridges or a grandpa-style plastic profile. Diverse mirrored or gradient tinted lenses give you countless choices to craft your look.
