Your face is often the first thing people notice about you, so choosing glasses that work well with your face structure is key. However, eyeglasses can be ridiculously expensive ($300 for plastic that cost less than $20 to make…really?). We say skip the overpriced frames and check out our favorite trends all for under $100.
