We’ve been saying it for years now, transparent glasses are super trendy! Here are the reasons why we love them.

They Truly Are Everlasting

For the past 5 years, we’ve been saying how much we love transparent glasses. They are just as popular today as they were a few years back and when we stop hearing about them, they always seem to come back eventually! Transparent glasses are more than just a trend, they evolve with the current shapes and tints. We believe they are definitely here to stay. If you are looking for a frame that you will be able to wear throughout the years, then a transparent frame is a definite must.

They Add Light to Your Face… and Sometimes Even a Subtle Touch of Colour!

Translucent frames can be completely clear or, they can also be tinted with a subtle touch of colour. As opposed to bold and dark frames, transparent glasses will brighten up your face. They will also highlight the colour of your eyes and make them seem bigger!

They Will Make You Look Amazing in Every Circumstance

Transparent frames look great in any season whether it is a sunny summer day or a cold winter evening, they will add a touch of warmth to your face. They are simply perfect for all occasions! If you have a scheduled photoshoot for work or for a family portrait, think of bringing your transparent frames with you! They definitely look amazing on camera since they let more light through them. They will enhance your face instead of covering it.

They Look Amazing on EVERYONE!

Men, women, children, grandparents, bosses, students, everyone.  We dare you to find someone who cannot rock a pair of transparent glasses.

They are Available in So Many Shapes, Sizes and Tints!

Quite frankly, we’ve never seen so many translucid frames on our shelves! Almost every brand has a few of these clear frames in their collection and we are absolutely delighted about it. No matter what your budget is, you will definitely be able to pick a pair of crystal-clear frames this spring! Plus, there is so much variety when it comes to the shape that we believe the perfect pair of transparent glasses exists for everyone in this world.

And, when it comes to styling the perfect outfit with your favourite pair of transparent frames, here is our best advice:


Try a minimalist look when it comes to your makeup: choose more natural colours and try to keep it simple in order to make your glasses stand out for a balanced look.


Again, stick to neutral colours. Transparent frames will look sophisticated and stylish with almost every colour, but this spring, we are definitely falling for pastels. Stay away from bold patterns and stripes, keep it simple!


Since your outfit and makeup will be neutral in colour, you can definitely wear an accessory that makes a fashion statement, like platform shoes or a coloured backpack or handbag, for example! You can even dare to wear a Panama hat or a stylish cap!
