Does anything sound more fun and whimsical than butterfly glasses? As butterflies are a symbol of transformation, what better way to upgrade your style than with a pair of butterfly-shaped glasses. The upturned lenses will instantly lift your vibe and leave you looking refreshed and fun all year round.
Originally from the ‘60s, butterfly glasses became popular again in the early 2000s when brands like Prada and Tom Ford reinvented these beautiful frames. Of course, with retro trends circling back in style, you’ll never go wrong with butterfly-shaped prescription glasses or sunglasses.
What are butterfly glasses?
Butterfly glasses are classic frames that are distinguished by the lens shape. Some frames have smooth outside borders, while others have a little dip where the frames meet the temples to symbolise the two wings of a butterfly.
Although the butterfly frames can vary in style, their most common and distinguishing feature is that they are significantly smaller on the inner edge near the nose than on the outside.
With such a bold and beautiful design, you can opt for a more classic choice of material like beautifully sleek metal frames. Or, for a more unique look, choose chunky acetate frames in bright colours like pink or red.
What is the difference between butterfly and cat-eye glasses?
The difference between cat-eye glasses and butterfly glasses frames is quite subtle. However, the name says it all!
One has the appearance of a cat's eye, while the other resembles butterfly wings. Although some people confuse the two styles, a pro can easily tell the difference just by glancing at them.
What face shape do butterfly glasses suit?
Want to know the best part about butterfly-shaped glasses? Regardless of your face shape, there is always a pair that will work for you!
Nail this style by sticking to curvier models if you have a more angular face and squared-off versions of the butterfly-shaped frames if you have a rounder or oval face. For more tips, check out our face shape guide to find your perfect fit.
