People with oval faces can be adventurous when it comes to the shape of their eyewear, but rectangular eyeglass frames work particularly well for this face shape. Because they are wider than they are long, rectangle glasses effectively balance out longer faces like oval.
Round Faces & Rectangle Glasses
Choosing the ideal frame shape to match your face is all about contrast. Rounder faces gain some defining sharpness from angular frames like rectangle eyeglasses. For frame size, consider larger eyeglasses to add extra visual weight to the top half of your face.
Heart-Shaped Faces & Rectangle Glasses
The heart-shaped face shape is wider at the forehead and narrower toward the chin. Smaller frame sizes are great for this shape, and the wider dimensions of rectangular eyeglass frames work to balance out heart-shaped faces.
The Perfect Color for Your Rectangle Eyeglasses
Earthy Shades for Warm Skin Tones
If you have a warmer shaded skin tone, neutral and earthy colored rectangle glasses can complement your look perfectly. Tortoise and brown frames are a great choice, as well as gold-colored eyeglasses. Cooler colored eyewear can clash with warm skin tones, so you may want to avoid them.
Dark Tones For Cool Skin Tones
Cool skin tones work well with darker shaded rectangular eyeglass frames. Blacks and dark primary colors work well with paler skin tones, and you can consider darker tortoise frames if you’re feeling a little more adventurous.
