Whether you’re looking for a subtle deviation from a classic eyewear shape or want something completely off the beaten path, the answer may lie in geometry. From hexagons and heptagons to shapes that have no name, eyewear is playing all the angles. The introduction of even one straight line along the top or bottom of a rounded style can literally bring some edginess to a frame that may have been bordering on basic. So do the math and your frame game will be in great shape.
