Wayfarer eyewear is defined with the shape that resembles trapezium shape. Kind of diagonal but the upper part of the frame is comparatively wider than the lower portion of the frame. The shape of the glasses looks similar to the diagonal or quite like trapezium. Meaning of the word ‘wayfarer’ means ‘’a person who travels on foot’’.
Maybe that is what defines the attitude of the person wearing those glasses. You can easily spot the wayfarer amongst the bunch of the eyeglasses, due to its shape that is neither rectangular or square. We can instead call it a combination of square, rectangle, round or oval. But it totally depends on the variants of wayfarers available in the market.
