This is a blessing for the ladies who desire a fashionable outlook - basically all the ladies. These are quite versatile glasses and can go with almost everything in your wardrobe.

Contemporary with a touch of elegance, is how we prefer to define these rectangular half-rim glasses.

Although it can fit into several occasions, these glasses are an office masterclass.

Try these on to avail the benefits of both the decent rectangular and the funky cat-eye frame.

Specially designed for office use for women, these glasses subscribe to the idea of gender parity at the workplace. But it is not at all limited here - thanks to the unique berry red frame, making it a perfect frame for every game.


What pillars are to buildings, frames are to glasses - the foundation. But there lies a catch here. While pillars may not be visible to the naked eyes, frames definitely are. Hence, it becomes imperative for you to choose a frame with a great visual appearance. These 7 half-rim frames are just the right ones.
