FROM ADMIRED TO ACQUIRED: 5 Stylish Marchon NYC Frames Under $160

Posted Feb 4, 2020 | Fashion & Trends

Glasses don’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and these five styles are here to prove it. From Marchon NYC’s Admired Collection, each of these frames top out at around $160 including high quality lenses.

The Admired Collection is made up of stylish essentials that span some of the biggest eyewear trends of the season, all at a super affordable price. You’ll see some standard favorites as well as stand-outs like Navigators, octagonal frames, and clear crystal styles. Without further ado, here are our faves under $160.

Budget Tip: If you have VSP, MetLife, or Cigna vision insurance, you may have to pay very little (or none at all!) out-of-pocket for these styles. Of course, you should always check your benefits statement to check your frame allowance.

1. Modern Matte: M-3500

Keyhole bridge. Matte black color. Rounded frames. These glasses are classic and modern at the same time. We’re digging the matte (because they won’t slip and slide if we sweat), but these beauts also come in tortoise and crystal clear.

All the Best Angles: M-4501

We’ve seen this shape executed by many brands, but never at this great a price point. At just $159, these uber-trendy octagonal frames come in a variety of metals and colors. We’re loving the combo of pink temple tips and rose gold metal, though.

3. Cat-eye frames with attitude: M-5501

A cat-eye with a lil’ attitude on the temples? Count us in. With solid black fronts and tortoise on the temples, we just can’t get enough of this style. Oh, and it comes in a variety of other colors just as cute and just as versatile.

This clean and simple Navigator style goes with every outfit. Not just for hipsters anymore, these glasses are the new standard pair begging to be a part of your personal eyewear collection.

5. Sophisticated specs: M-8001

An updated horn-rim style can add sophistication and studiousness to your look. This style used to be considered retro, but we’ve seen that it’s back with a vengeance. This pair comes in black with gold or silver metal, and tortoise with silver metal. We’re all over the tort pair, but we wouldn’t blame you if you went for a classic black pair.

As always, you’ll pay the lowest out of pocket (the average is $31!) when you use your vision insurance. And if you do end up having an out-of-pocket cost, you’ll save an additional 20% on eyewear even when you’ve already used your allowance. Happy shopping!
