20/20 INSIGHT: Whatever shape, color or texture you find it in, metals are making a statement this season. With endless possibilities, these materials are used in various ways to create eyewear with small and subtle details or frames with colorful and vivacious shapes. With plastic frames still reigning supreme among trend-setting wearers, metal just might be giving its counterpart a run for their money.
