We all try to find innovative ways to display our personal sense of style at the workplace while still staying within the boundaries of appropriate office attire. It can be difficult in corporate and conservative spaces, but what if there was an accessory that can change the way we express our own individual style?

With sunglass season arriving and being on the hunt for our next statement specs, why not try the growing trend of the non- prescription optical frame? This trend has recently started to pick up and everyone from celebrities to street wear bloggers can be seen rocking these beauties.

It’s an edgy yet sophisticated way to add flair to your office attire at an affordable cost allowing you to switch up your style for every occasion. While we usually depend on the classics: black, gray, brown, try opting them out for colour, metal wired, and plastic frames to make a statement at the office. Here are five must-have styles you should consider when exploring this trend.
