Browline Prescription Glasses

Browline glasses were popularised in the ‘50s and ‘60s and quickly became a staple model for various brands. You could argue that Ray-Ban has refined this design to perfection with their Clubmaster style, as it is now one of their most recognised models. The iconic liberationist Malcolm X was just one of the public figures historically known to choose browline glasses to add to his educated and polished appearance. 

 

What are browline glasses?

Browline glasses have a chunky, bold upper section that holds the lenses in place and mimics eyebrows to frame your eyes and draw attention to your natural browline. Most commonly, the upper section of the frame is constructed from plastic, with the temple arms and nose bridge crafted using metal. However, since the 2000s, the build of browlines has transformed to use all-metal with less pronounced upper frames.

 

Are browline glasses in style?

Although browline glasses have evolved with new designs over time, they remain a timeless classic. Reminiscent of ‘50s style, browline glasses have recently enjoyed a renaissance thanks to the incorporation of retro elements into today's trends. Thanks to this reemergence, browline glasses have rapidly gained popularity once again. Browline prescription glasses aren't the only way to achieve this look, as you can select from a whole range of browline sunglasses too!

 

What face shape goes with browline glasses?

The face shapes most suited to browline glasses are those with pronounced cheekbones, such as diamond faces, because the bulky upper part of the frames softens the cheekbones. Browline glasses are also recommended for the heart face shape because of the balance they bring to wide foreheads.
