Plastic is a material that suits every style, from traditional to totally on trend.
It can be very feminine, in soft pastels or solid brights, or very masculine, in heavy opaque black or tortoiseshell. This year we're loving laminated layers of different colours that almost change with the light.
Plastic is skin friendly, hypoallergenic, and durable. It's perfect for stronger prescription lenses as the rims cover lens edges. If you have a sensitive nose the pads on metal frames can be uncomfortable - plastic frames have built in bridges which do not need nose pads.
Larger frames in traditional light colours are perfect for those who want something timeless, while heavy square or round shapes are on trend right now. Colours are strong and bright this year, with patterned materials and ombre fading.Take a look at Paul Smith, Face a Face and William Morris.
For men, plastic in black or tortoiseshell brown is old school classic, and dark, round geek frames are cool right now. We're looking at Gregory Peck in 1962 for inspiration!
