As someone who has terrible eyesight, I can tell you that they are one of my favorite accessories. Since elementary school, they became stable in my everyday life. From style to style, they would transform my face, and ultimately add character to an overall conventional look. I remember shopping for them and how expensive purchasing eyewear used to be. Name brands like Ray-Ban and Gucci had awesome frames to choose from, but were way over our price range, especially with a prescription. With more extensive, budget-friendly options available, it has now become much easier to look like one of the Blues Brothers or you tapped into the Matrix.

If you have not found inspiration from London Men’s FW like Off-White’s specs or Bose’s new sunglasses, my list below might inspire you. Artist like Yoko Ono and Salvador Dali held an interest in second eyes since the beginning with various work inspired by this tool used by everyday people. Since artists know best, it’s wise to take advice from the greats and tread carefully on trends.
