In the eyewear market, some designers focus on enhancing female and male contrast in eyeglasses design, resulting distinguishable masculine and feminine glasses. These glasses follow two separate runways. On the other hand, lots of unisex eyeglasses are still around for decades, which attract both men and women. Some optical stores even have exclusive unisex glasses sections.
In general, most unisex eyeglass styles are neutral and there are actually some styling trends. Plastic frames in oval and elongated rectangular shapes are popular in unisex eyeglasses. The second trend is rimless and semi-rimless lenses in oval shapes. Retro, small John Lennon styles are also attractive both to men and women. Progressive shapes such as modified rectangle, bowtie and butterfly are appealing unisex styles. Titanium and stainless steel frames in clean and simple styles are also favorable unisex choices.
Specialty eyewear realm is particularly filled with unisex eyeglass styles. They cover almost all areas such as computer use, driving, sports, crafts, hobbies and so on. Unisex eyeglasses for these special activities are designed to both enhance performance and create an attractive appearance. The lens type and frame design are both important in creating suitable specialty eyeglasses. Unisex specialty eyewear is designed for special activities, better vision, safety features, or cosmetic reasons.
