From fabric to wood to leather—and lots in between—new and quirky materials are making spexy ‘n’ shady appearances these days! Spotted on the hottest fashion runways, it’s no wonder these unique textures and finishes are being incorporated into eyewear for guys and gals alike. Bringing depth and unexpected flair to your peepers has never been easier with frames flaunting any of these coveted materials.
Jewel-encrusted insets, as well as metallic effects, scream flashy fervor. Serving as a nod to yesteryear, faux and true wood appliques, not to mention leather accents, are ideal for those with a vintage obsession. Textiles are no longer just for garments—denim and fabric inlays are permeating into the realm of glasses and sunnies. Channeling the top trends, matte and crystal clear frames are of course total show-stoppers. Take a looksie at our fave styles boasting all these must-have materials below.
