We’re here to make sure all your angles are good ones. The best way to determine whether a pair of frames will suit you is to look at your face shape. If you have a rounder face, a classic sharp-cornered rectangle will balance your features and add dimension to your face. Worried your chiseled cheekbones and strong jaw will make you and rectangle frames a mismatch? Don’t! Those with more angular faces can still pull off rectangular or square reading glasses by choosing a pair with softer angles. If you’re not sure of your face shape, begin your journey of self-discovery by consulting our Fit Guide.
But of course – our versatility is what gives us our edge, and that goes double for rectangular reading glasses. We have pairs to suit head sizes from narrow to average to wide. Narrow-noggined folks should angle for options like Biff and Half Full (a rectangular half-rim, no less), which include narrow-sized frame options. Those who need average-sized frames can choose from the likes of the quirky Over Zealous and classic Peckerhead. And for our readers with roomier skulls, frame favorites like Chilling Worth and Hugh Jass are available in wide frame sizes. And that’s just the tip of the rectangle, folks – there are plenty more sharp-cornered spectacles where these came from.
We’d never presume to tell you how to dress, but we’re more than happy to spitball some ideas. One of the many virtues of rectangular frames is that they’re virtuosos of variability. You could go sleek and stylish by playing up sharp angles in both your frames and clothing via tailored silhouettes and patterned linework, helping you appear both chic and professional. Rectangular readers can class up a plain t-shirt and jeans, or add some Matrix-y gravitas to anything leather. Thicker-rimmed rectangles lend themselves well to vintage vibes, so feel free to Mod it up with A-line skirts and bold hues, or let out your inner peace child with floaty fabrics and bell-bottoms.
Not all of our rectangular glasses are created equal, in the cosmetic sense at least. They range from thick, bold frames to thin, delicate ones, with plenty in between. Opt for thick-rimmed rectangular readers to exude an aura of retro cool, whether that’s in the form of chic rounded corners or quirky upswept angles.
Then there’s the quintessential mid-thickness rectangle, which can be relied upon to evoke an air of authority. Ideal for office attire, dramatic effect during pitch meetings, and keeping unruly nieces and nephews in line with little else but a well-timed disapproving frown.
Lastly, if your ideal rectangle frame is more sexy professor than anything else, thinner reading glass frames will offer the hit of librarian-vogue you’ve been pining for. Even if you’re just filling up your online shopping cart at the local coffee shop, passersby are sure to assume you’re reviewing dissertations, and looking damn good while doing so.
