Need some help choosing frames for
the new university term?
We’ve got you covered.
University is the time for experimenting with fashion and
finding your own, unique style, so finding the right frames when you’re a
fashion-conscious student on a budget can be a challenge.
Your glasses are one of, if not the, most important fashion accessory you own. Think about it. You probably wear them a lot more frequently
than any of your clothes, and they’re on your face, so they’re one of the first
things people will notice about you.
With this in mind, it’s worth shopping around and spending a little more
to invest in a pair of frames that you really love.
What’s more, we’re currently offering you a second pair of
frames completely FREE when you buy any pair of frames priced £65 or above!
To help you discover which style is right for you we’ve
rounded up our top 4 women’s and men’s frames for university students in 2016.

there. Available in either black or dark
navy blue, these frames are designed for durability so are tough enough to

colours; choose from either gunmetal or brown gunmetal. Fairly straight and angular in appearance,
