But between full-rimmed, semi-rimmed, rimless, low-bridge, and wire (plus about two dozen styles in between), it can be difficult to land on the right frames for your face.
Your face shape, hair colour, and eye colour – not to mention personal taste, lifestyle, and whether you need a prescription or not – definitely play a major role when it comes to picking the perfect pair.
But there’s also no shame in keeping on top of what’s trending in eyewear, which is why we recently took a peek inside Oscar Wylee’s 2022 look-book.
Want a spoiler? This season, Oscar Wylie is taking the Y2K aesthetic to a whole new level. Think bubble-gum pink frames, tinted lenses, and square silhouettes.
So, grab your teeny-tiny baguette, throw on your well-worn Juicy Couture velour tracksuit, and crank some Density’s Child, because we’ve rounded up the top five Oscar Wylee frames to wrap around your face today.
ICYMI, Oscar Wylee is one of the hottest optical brands in the country (and they’re making major waves in Canada, too), providing fashionable and affordable eyewear that will take you from the boardroom to the boardwalk and everywhere in between – all in a kaleidoscope of colour.
Founded in Sydney, Oscar Wylee is known for taking inspiration from Australia’s relaxed beach scene and tying it to global trends in fashion, art, and architecture. In short? Eyeglasses that are as comfortable as they are on-trend – the kind you never want to take off because they go with absolutely everything you own.
Let’s see what’s in focus this season.
Do you fangirl over square frames? You’ll love Mesa. She’s your 2022 answer to the trusted and classic square shape eyewear, with just a little bit of early ‘00s nostalgia. Make a statement in Electric Pink or keep it neutral in Auburn Tortoise.
Looking for some cat-eye shades to keep the winter rays at bay? Say hello to Arabella. Feminine and elegant in understated black, Arabella is a must-have for your next weekend getaway.
Want to stand out from the crowd? Enter Serge. Just like its namesake, the French musician Serge Gainsbourg, this rectangle frame is bold, bright, and brilliant. We love Serge in Tortoise Electric Pink: business-chic up top, party girl vibes down below.
Looking for some out-of-the-box frames? Oscar Wylee’s Jelly Collection is worth your while. Surry is super light, extremely flexible, yet also seriously durable, so they’re destined to stand the test of time. If you’ve maybe been just a little less than careful with your eyewear to date, get yourself a pair of these babies, pronto.
Simply after a classic round pair that never goes out of style? We hear you! Alya is your girl. Comfortable and lightweight, Alya is a classic beauty that will keep you feeling fabulous day in, day out. We’ve got our eyes on the Romance and Latte shades.
