  1. Transparent Frames are the Clear Choice

From Paris to LA, transparent frames are gracing runways around the world!  And we can see why.  These simple frames show-off your face and put the attention on YOU, not on your glasses.  They can be found in a variety of styles, so are truly customizable.  You can choose an entire transparent frame or a partial frame to add a splash of color.  These amazing frames are great for hiding age lines and giving you style without being too dark or overbearing.

Crystal frames are hot sellers from LaFont, Badgley Mischka, Dianne Von Furstenburg, and Vera Wang.  Check out some of Empire’s transparent frames here! [Possible link to where you can buy these frames on the Empire site]

Transparent Frames

  1. Go Sleek and Slim with Lightweight Metals

The past five years have seen big and bulky frames.  Well, no more!  Lightweight metals are making a comeback due to their sleek and sophisticated design. These frames are often made from titanium or stainless steel and combine comfort with durability.  But do not be fooled by their slim appearance.  Although these frames are extremely lightweight, there are many options to add design, color, and interest via painting, laser cutting, or layering with acetate.

Several manufacturers are including entire lines of lightweight frames including Ovvo, Silhouette, Kensie, and Modo.  If you have had issues with your previous bulky frames, try some of Empire’s lightweight frames to change up your look.

  1. You Won’t Want to Hide These Classic Tortoise Frames

You cannot go wrong with a classic tortoise frame.  They truly never go out of style, and 2018 is bringing them back to the forefront of fashion.  Today’s designers are playing with the tortoise pattern to highlight different parts of their eyeglasses, like the frame front, the brow bar, the temples, or other various combinations.  You can choose how much tortoise you want on your glasses and combine modern styles with the classic beauty of tortoise.

Some of our favorite designers who are working with tortoise include Jimmy Choo, Esquire, and Thema.  See what Empire has to offer in this classic tortoise style. [Possible link to tortoise glasses]
