There are two main types of eyewear; rimmed and rimless. These two eyewear sectors have been in a debate since forever. Are rimless glassed better or rimmed; which is the superior type of eyewear. Let’s end this debate once and forever.


Beautifully structured rimless glasses can give you that modern and chic look that you see in Korean fashion. A lot of Korean signers, actors etc. choose rimless glasses over rimmed given its sleek chic look. 

But at the same time rimmed glasses can give a structure to your face, it gives you a cute nerdy look that has caught heat in modern fashion. A lot of people prefer to wear rimmed glasses to emphasise their style and make it stand out in the crowd.
