Looking for style inspiration for your next pair of frames? We’ve taken a look back at what our lovely online customers have been buying over the last year and created a rundown of our best-selling glasses of 2016!
If you’re thinking about a new eyewear look for the New Year then you can’t go wrong with one of our best-selling frames from this blog.
In 2016 plastic frames have paved the way; with the vast majority of our most popular frames having a durable and contemporary plastic build. Although round frames were a big trend in 2016, our best-selling frames have all had a more classic, rectangular shape.
Whether you’re looking for classic and affordable or a more refined pair of designer frames, there is something to suit every taste and budget in our collection of 2016’s best-selling glasses!
Star Wars Limited Edition Glasses
Last Christmas we launched two pairs of limited edition adult’s Star Wars frames, and with the launch of the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie this Christmas, the popularity/ ‘force’ of these glasses is still going strong!
An absolute must-have for glasses-wearing fans of the iconic Star Wars films, every pair of these frames comes with an exclusively designed limited edition hard case, lined with stormtrooper material and a matching cloth.
Women’s Value Range Glasses
Connie | Baseline
Priced at just £15 including standard 1.5 scratch-resistant lenses, it’s easy to see why these fashionably-shaped frames are a firm favourite.
Imogen | Baseline
The Connie frames have a straight upper frame and a gently curved lower frame, giving a subtly feminine finish to these trendy plastic glasses. The sides also feature an attractively textured plait design.
Our Imogen frames are right on-trend with their large lenses and slim plastic build. These casual and contemporary frames come in two pastel candy colours and a shiny, semi-transparent finish.
Soft, pastel colours have been popular on the Autumn/Winter 2016/17 catwalks so we’re expecting the popularity of our Imogen frames to continue well into next year!
Men’s Value Range Glasses
Lewis | Baseline
Our classic, black, men’s Lewis frames are one of our long-running best-sellers. Priced at just £20 including standard 1.5 scratch-resistant lenses, these versatile frames will fit right in with any outfit and are one of our easiest to wear frames.
If you’re looking for a simple pair of everyday frames then you can’t go wrong with Lewis in black.
Julian | Baseline
Our trendy Julian frames are perfect for men looking for the latest look for less. These hip square frames come in either a dark tortoiseshell design or a black to white fade finish.
The Julian frames are a popular choice with those looking for a pair of glasses to wear casually creating a trendy, creative look.
Women’s Mid-Range Glasses
Beth | Brink Couture
Our women’s Beth frames take a classic, rectangular shaped frame and give it a sophisticated but contemporary finish.
Gently rounded frames to the front are complemented by a flash of detail at the temples and transparent highlighting on the inner frames to create a versatile pair of women’s glasses that are popular for both everyday and work wear.
Men’s Mid-Range Glasses
Drew | Urbn West
The Drew frames from our Urbn West range are a popular choice amongst both men and women. Priced at just £65 including standard 1.5 scratch-resistant lenses, these glasses come in a classic black design or a trendier tortoiseshell finish.
If you’re looking for a versatile pair of frames with all the style and detail of a more high-end designer pair of glasses but without the steep price tag then you can’t go wrong with our Drew frames.
Women’s Designer Glasses
MK269 | Michael Kors
Our Michael Kors range is one of our best-selling women’s designer brands and these sophisticated black MK269 frames make it easy to see why.
With their defined frame shape and ever so slightly upswept temples, these classy frames are classic, versatile and full of designer flair.
The Michael Kors branding features in silver at the temples on the sides.
VGV804 | Givenchy
For those prepared to spend a little more on their eyewear, our Givenchy VGV804 frames are a very popular choice. These chic designer frames feature fashionably large lenses and slim rounded sides with detail at the temples that resembles elegant beading.
Available in two classy colour combinations, choose from a romantic dusty pink with gold and white detail or classic black with silver and red detail.
Men’s Designer Glasses
RX5184 | Ray-Ban
Simple designer style has made Ray-Ban’s eyewear iconic and these men’s Ray-Ban 5184 frames are a highly sought after fashion accessory and a bestseller here at TescoOpticians.com.
