We can see how white or red plastic frames might not be for everyone — sometimes you just want to feel a little sleeker. The newest take on oversize is here, and dare we say, here to stay. These extra large metal frames in hues of gold, bronze, pewter and silver compliment every skin tone — as well as every piece in your closet. And the thinner frames won’t completely overpower your face. You’ll find all kinds of shapes including the traditional aviator like the pair that Victoria Beckham rocked recently in Paris. Check out our picks of the hottest versions in every budget range.
