It can be just as difficult to find glasses in your size as it is clothing that fits. Wearing ill-fitting frames is awkward and uncomfortable. Eyewear retailer Eyeconic found the solution to this problem by offering a variety of wide glasses you’ll actually want to wear. I picked out 5 of my favorites, each one offering a very different look from the other – all available in extended widths. Take a look below:
Matte Tumbled Grey-Green Glow
Size: 55-19-140 (Large)
$297 and up at Eyeconic
If you want to add a little style and color to your look, the Nike 35KD is the frame you need. Extra-durable with a combination of metal and laminated zyl acetate, these glasses are meant to last. Get style, sophistication and fun all in one frame.
Dragon DR126 Count
Size: 58-15-140 (Extra Large)
Buy from $132 & up at Eyeconic
Get a designer look with this classic rectangular frame by Dragon. Made with carved acetate and metal hinges, these eyeglasses are available in 4 different colors: matte tortise, matte black, matte brown, and matte crystal teal.
Blue Ribbon 5
Sizes: Medium (53), Large (55), Extra Large (57), Extra Large (59)
$105 & up at Eyeconic
If you’re looking for some fun, retro-inspired glasses with a modern touch, the Blue Ribbon 5 is utter perfection. I’m a big fan of this throwback style, available in 4 sizes that will work for just about any size head. These frames are made from zyl and boast durable spring hinges. For those of you who want a pair of glasses that better match your own unique style, these might be the ones for you.
Size: 56-18-140 (Large)
$96 & up at Eyeconic
You can’t go wrong with a classic black frame, especially one like the Emmett MCE412 by McAllister. These glasses cover all the bases, with a geeky, oversized fit, keyhole nose and generally square shape. For under $100, these will quickly become your go-to glasses.
Matte Tortoise / Black
Size: 54-17-140 (Large)
$211 & up at Eyeconic
Who knew Nike made such stylish and refined wide eyeglasses? The 7097 in matte tortoise / black offers a modern look that will work with almost any outfit. Like other Nike frames, these are made to be durable and to stay in place when you wear them, because nobody likes frames that constantly fall off your face!
Flexon Autoflex 17
Sizes: Large (55), Extra Large (57), Extra Large (59)
$275 & up at Eyeconic
And now for something completely different! The Flexon Autoflex 17 boasts a navigator-style double bridge and Flexon memory metal to ensure it can take whatever you throw at it. This classic, durable frame is also available in brown and gold. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re not a fan of modern eyeglasses and want something trend-proof, the Autoflex 17 fits the bill.
