Men’s Reading Glasses Trends for Spring 2024 According to

A fresh color palette, bold looks, high-tech minimalism and cool crystal frames, finding the perfect eyewear or reader style in the latest men’s reading glasses collections has never been easier if you know what’s on-trend. Some of the most stylish and wearable looks for men this year include a new selection of re-worked classic shapes and designs - think round, oval, aviator-inspired, roundish and rectangular, updated in a new edit of colors which are translucent, light - and particularly flattering for the face.


Trending glasses colors

A shift in the color offering for men means that those who suit a subtle, more delicate palette of hues and those who are looking for a fresh and on-trend design have a wonderful choice of contemporary looks…often, these new and delicate tones have elegant surface effects, including light crystal transparencies or opalescent finishes. Light tones of green and particularly olive hues are trending, while soft gray, beige and brown variations and tones of amber and champagne offer a contrast to more traditional tones in the men’s eyewear collections such as Havana, tortoise, black or dark brown.

What is more, these lighter tones are ideal for many complexions and often times they enhance eye colors and skin tones, creating a particularly stylish and flattering look for the face.


Sleek, narrow constructions with a minimal design

For anyone seeking the ultimate comfort and a frame style that feels timeless, this year’s metal eyewear continues the trend towards minimalism and lightweight designs that pay attention to innovation and new solutions for technical details such as silicone nose pads and state-of-the-art integrated spring hinges. Simple, delicate wire rims and very narrow frames serve well for everyday wear, ensuring a barely-there and less in-your-face feel that is pleasurable for work as much as for leisure.


Cool crystal frames

Transparent or clear frames - especially round and panto shapes - have long been popular in the men’s collections. These styles are elegant and refined, with a touch of vintage inspiration that always shines through. The transparent acetate materials have a graceful, artistic finish in the contemporary eyewear collections this year, with some featuring a small hint of pastel color; material combinations are also an easy way to wear the look this year: Ray-Ban’s 7017 eyeglasses combines a crystal front with sleek metal temples for an original take.


Contemporary bold designs

This season, the popularity of statement luxury-style frames where every detail is well crafted and beautifully finished cannot be underestimated, for those who prefer to make their eyewear style quite bold. In the designer collections, intriguing mixes or acetate colors including gradients and striated effects offer something different which will truly standout. Traditional thick-rimmed rectangular glasses right through to refined panto shapes will add a touch of personality to an outfit, and those larger proportions will add an air of distinction and confidence too. Some of the notable details that are popular in these types of frames include the characteristic key hole bridge and metal rivets on the front of the frame. They may also boast a distinctive signature logo or brand insignia on temples and temple tips.
