Since quality prescription frames are hard to find at the local thrift store, here are a few vintage and unconventional styles to complement a hipster lifestyle.
If there’s one style that’s hard to define or create fashion for, it’s hipster. Arguably, this is because the hipster style is associated with a lifestyle that shuns the mainstream and overplayed. Hipster is unique, which means finding your own style and running with it.
Still, unlike an awesome one-of-a-kind shirt or sweater you found at the thrift store and augmented to your personal tastes, prescription glasses are generally most useful when purchased new and not altered (too much). Because of this, certain styles of eyewear have sprung up in response to the need for unique, vintage, and nerdy eyewear that is both clever and “hipster.”
The hipster style is both original and completely un-original, combining classic, vintage, and contemporary styles in unique and contrasting ways to create a masterpiece of a wardrobe all your own. If you wear prescription glasses, and you’ve worked hard on your personal hipster style, it’d be a little crazy to ruin it with a pair of boring, mainstream glasses.
Retro eyewear styles aren’t too hard to find nowadays, but ones that are just right for the look you’re trying to accomplish may be somewhat harder to come by. Most people feel that hot gluing decorations to the sides of your frame to look a bit contrived, so if you’re looking for something original in eyewear, your best bet is to get something unpopular or seldom-used in the way you’re using them. You can accomplish that easily with the frames listed here.
