Make a style statement with black frames

Smart and serious, black frames can create a striking look. Think Ryan Reynolds, Idris Elba, Courteney Cox, Oprah… the list of famous people who rock black glasses frames goes on. 

And the great thing is they really do suit pretty much everyone, no matter your hair colour or skin tone.  

Plus, black will work with most style choices, from fashion forward to vintage, while giving a professional, sophisticated vibe when teamed with office-wear. 

So, whether you like a bold chunky frame or something slimmer and more lightweight, we have plenty to choose from at Patrick & Menzies! Read on to find out more about some of our favourite black frames currently in stock at our four North Essex branches.
