Rectangular frames are a versatile frame option with a ton of styling opportunities—with frames in every material and different colors, there’s a rectangular frame out there to suit your personality and style.

If you’re looking for a sophisticated addition to your look, a streamlined rectangular frame in a sleek material will add a business professional appeal. If you’re looking for glasses with a little bit more style, consider rectangular frames in your favorite color or a frame with embellishments. Because of the classic shape, daring colors or stylish designs can help make a statement while still feeling neutral.

Can you pull off the rectangular look?

Your face shape is an important consideration when choosing your eyeglass frames. Rectangular glasses are known for their versatility—and that extends to how they can flatter various face shapes. Oval, round, and heart-shaped faces will enjoy the balance of rectangular frames and flatter their face shape the most. The angular styling of the rectangular frames is perfect for those with soft facial features or rounded jawlines.

For round faces, look for rectangular frames that sit wider than your face to make you appear slimmer and longer, adding balance to your features. Frames that have a strong bridge suit an oval face nicely. Consider glasses that are wider than the broadest part of your face and are geometric in shape like a true rectangle. Just ensure the frames don’t cover up more than half your face as it’ll throw off the natural symmetry of the oval face.
