We’ll arm you with great ideas to help get dad fashionably framed no matter what his personality is like. Take a look below to see what category your pops falls into and just follow our suggestions!

On the Go Dad

We know dads are always busy. After a long day of work there are always soccer games to get to, clients to entertain and BBQs to host. Dads like this need frames that are versatile no matter what situation pops up. Sunglasses that go over prescription eyewear are a must—try a frame from the Vistana collection by Live Eyewear. Or if dad needs to change his look for a meeting, go for interchangeable temples with Columbia specs by L’Amy America.

Save the Earth Dad

It’s cool to be socially responsible, which is why plenty of dads are into eco-friendly goods, eyewear being no exception. Help your special guy reduce his carbon footprint in a pair of Foresee shades by Optic Nerve or Jhane Barnes specs by Kenmark Group. These frames use a variety of go green methods like recyclable material and renewable resources.
