The Oakdale eyeglass frame makes a strong fashion statement as an indispensable accessory, but manages to be durable at the same time. The frame has a hefty look, yet the lightweight plastic composite material, molded with gently sloping nose rests, has a light feel on the face. The square shape is unmistakably substantial, yet is flattering for both men and women -- especially those with a round face as it brings the attention upward. That boldness in construction is carried through to the color choices. Metal reinforced temples amplify the comfort level for day-long wearability. In another fortunate contradiction, the color choices black and brown are bold and classic by nature perfectly accommodating any wardrobe or lifestyle. However, the powerful color theme begins as a deep saturated tone at the brow area, then gradually fades into a lighter crystal shade toward the bottom of the frame. This progressive softening of color does exactly that to the complexion. The popular and versatile Oakdale is a bold frame with a soft finish.
