What are browline glasses?
With the upper rim of the lens being thicker than the lower, the frames help draw attention to the wearer’s brow line — hence their name. Browline glasses are similar to semi-rimless frames, with the exaggerated brow being the main feature of the glasses but browline offers a more modern, thin brow line alternative. They can come in all different materials, black acetate being the original, but now the style has evolved into a variety of colourful frames, metal silhouettes and contemporary designs.
Here is a rundown of our favourite browline glasses to help you find the best pair to suit your style...

But which glasses are right for you?
Face shape is everything when it comes to picking glasses. The general rule is that you should pick a style to compliment the structure of your face. So, if you have sharper features then go for angled frames and for softer faces, you should opt for more rounded specs. Read a full breakdown of choosing glasses to suit your face shape here. However, if you really fall in love with a pair of glasses that don’t “technically” match your face, then we give you permission to throw the rule book out the window and wear them until your heart’s content!
