100 Overly Dramatic Eyewear Designs

From Beetle-Shaped Sunglasses to Shimmering Masquerade Eyewear

— October 1, 2013 — Tech
These dramatic eyewear designs will certainly capture the interest of any consumer looking to add something bold and over-the-top to their collection of accessories.

Glasses and shades are not only a practical and functional way to protect your eyes, but they can also act as stylishly fashionable accessories as well, which is why opting for a pair that are visually dramatic and flamboyant can be a great way to add style to your overall look. Why go for an ordinary and mundane pair of sunglasses or prescription glasses when you can get a little wild and opt for something three-dimensional or bursting with color?

From theatrical cat-eye shades to pop art-inspired designs, these dramatic eyewear examples are offering up some creative options for accentuating your accessories with strikingly unique features.
