Visualites Lightweight Reading Glasses Frame Style Guide
At Visualites we have 5 different style frames of our own traditional reading glasses and one additional style from John Varvatos. We also have two different style sun readers and the original Thinoptics ultra-thin readers. But this guide is going to focus on our designer reader. Our designer readers come in the following frame shapes; rectangle, half moon, oval, half eye and our newest design in the Visualites 8 the screw-less rectangle.
There is a reason our Visualites 1 rectangle reading glasses are our best selling readers ever. The traditional look and vibe of rectangle eyeglass frames is a look that will never go out of style. The shape is flattering to almost any face and stays stylish season after season. Our rectangle frames are wider and edgy and convey an intellectual look. These come in so many colors we are sure to have one for everyone’s taste. With the flashy colors like tangerine, sky and lime that pop with brilliant color, to more subdued tones like our smoke and khaki we have the full spectrum. Then we also have some styles that offer some texture including blush and gray matrix for those looking for something truly original in their readers.
Half moon style reading glasses frames are one of the most classic even historical frame style of glasses made. We took this somewhat of an antique design and gave it a modern look with fresh colors and texture. The Visualtes 2 half moon frames are available in the very popular tortoise, very urban smoke and a light and airy crystal color. These modern colors on this classic frame have given them a whole new re-birth in popularity and are now considered retro cool.
The earliest designs of reading glasses were oval out of practicality, since this was at that time the only way to create lenses to improve your vision. Even with all the styles now available the classic oval frame is still extremely popular. Our very versatile Visualites 5 oval frames are appropriate for any occasion. With a great selection of colors to match every wardrobe! Try out the eye catching red to make a statement or the more subtle pearl when you want your glasses to be less of the center of attention. Also available in orchid, lemon, brown and a few more colors.
Our Visualites 7 are designed to be worn as a half eye reading glass frame. The appearance of the V7 is very similar to the classic V1. The intention for the V7 was that it will be worn a little lower down on the nose than the V1. This allows you to peer more easily above the reader when looking out in the distance The height of the V1 is 25 mm high. The height of the V7 is 22 mm high. While not much of a difference, it is enough to make some kind of distinction between the two. People can tell the difference and will often develop a strong preference to one over the other. The Visualites 7 frames come in some of our most bold color saturations. The red is extremely deep and rich, the cobalt blue is bold and pops, while the taupe is a rich almost steel looking color.
The Visualites 8 is our newest addition to our collection of the best reading glasses available online. This next generation of reading glasses is built on our most popular rectangle frame but is screw-less. This gives the glasses a very clean and low profile appearance. The Visualites 8 are some of the most modern looking reading glasses we have ever seen. Complimenting the clean style of the frame design, the smoke and crystal colors are some of our best sellers, as these accentuate the feel the frames are going for.
The John Varvatos designer reading glasses bring inspiration from a classic rock and roll style with their modified square lenses and the way the frames extend beyond the lenses and the arms are attached at the back of the frame instead of on the side. These come in three very sophisticated color options including black frames with tortoise arms, crystal frames with tortoise arms and full tortoise. With these options you can have a pair that compliments any look you are going for. The John Varvatos are ideal for any man looking for distinguished and fashionable reading glasses.
