Calling all glasses-wearers! Eyewear is no longer just a necessity, but an inspired opportunity to accessorize. Your choice of glasses says more about your personality than your shoes or bags ever could; because you wear your frames every single day, they are the perfect way to broadcast your personal style to the rest of the world. That said, deciding where to pick up the right pair can be a challenge—especially when you can’t try them on IRL. To help you out, I scoured the web for plenty of cool eye glasses to shop right now, from the best places to buy glasses online.
I’ve been wearing glasses for pretty much my entire life, so I think I know a thing or two about finding a great (and long-lasting!) pair. I’ve literally tried almost every single style you can think of, from bright frames to more minimal gold options, and whatever mood I’m in, I have a pair that suits it perfectly. Luckily, frames don’t have to be super expensive to look luxe, so I’ve managed to amass a little collection for each and every OOTD.
Case in point: Sites like LensCrafters and Glasses USA offer fancy-looking frames that retail for under $100. No need to break the bank! That said, if you are looking to invest in a pair or two, consider splurging on glasses from Warby Parker or Ray-Ban. The options are endless when buying frames online. Some sites even give you the chance to try out a few different styles at home before choosing the ones you really want.
If you’re in the market for a new pair of glasses, we’ve got you covered. Here’s where I recommend shopping online for glasses, no matter what look you love.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Zenni Optical is a STYLECASTER sponsor, however, all products in this article were independently selected by our editors. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
Zenni recently collaborated with superstar Keke Palmer on a line of frames that fit your mood whether you’re at work, hanging out on the weekend, or just relaxing at home for a girls’ night in. This pair of browline glasses instantly amplifies any work outfit and costs just $33.
Ummmm…who knew they made eyeglasses in the iconic Prada PR 18WW frames? I’m obsessed. These are so chic, and although these are a designer pair, prices at LensCrafters start at just $99 for frames and lenses. If you’re looking for something chic, stylish, and affordable, this is your one-stop shop.
Once you pick up one of Pair Eyewear’s base frame styles, you can get hundreds of pairs of glasses out of them by popping on their top frames to showcase your personality — for as little as $60, prescription included. They have limited-edition drops that keep things interesting, such as their current fall-themed Harvest collection.
Lens Direct has a large selection of frames for under $34, including this style that’s just $15. Who says you have to compromise on style and quality to get something affordable?
Remember when I mentioned sites that let you try on glasses before you buy? Warby Parker is one of them. Take their online quiz or browse their entire selection to find the styles and colors that you like, then place an order. You get to try five frames for five days before deciding on the ones you want, and you can even add blue-light protection to your favorite pair.
You can’t get more classic than a pair of Ray-Bans, so don’t sleep on their glasses selection! Sure, their shades are iconic, but their regular glasses are just as good. Plus, a lot of their frames are also designed to be unisex and come in tons of colors, so you’ve got options.
Glasses USA gives you the chance to choose from thousands (yes, you read that correctly) of styles. Have fun scrolling through and picking a favorite! They even offer a year-long warranty on all of their frames, so you can easily return them if you have any issues.
No matter your need when it comes to your glasses, eyebobs has options for you—including all-day readers or your usual prescription pair. Try one of their blue light-specific styles if you’ve been finding yourself sitting on your phone or computer way too much recently. Headaches, be gone!
I’m already obsessed with DIFF’s sunglasses, so it’s not a shock that I would love their eye glasses, too. Consider this the perfect place to find on-trend frames that are anything but basic.
EyeBuyDirect just launched their 5 to See collection, comprised of eco-friendly frames made from recycled water bottles. Each pair comes in three neutral colorways that will go with everything, so you won’t have to worry about your glasses clashing with the rest of your look ever again.
