What are two-tone glasses?
Typically the two-tone style will have a solid colour at the top of the frames, and this will fade into another as you move down. The design is a slight nod to the browline glasses style, as both place emphasis on the wearer's browline. Browline glasses do this more literally with tangible materials, whereas classic two-tone specs create a similar look with subtle colour contours.
The two-tone glasses style has evolved much over the last decade, with more colourful alternatives now available compared to the classic black and brown shades. The style is predominantly made from acetate or plastic, but metal frames can also create the beautiful ombré effect too.
