These types of frames suit people with a round, oval or heart-shaped faces. Many people fit in this category and therefore, can pull off wearing the rectangular type of spectacles. They are one of the classic looking eyeglasses, partly due to the ease of making them in the past instead of curving some material to fit the lenses nowadays. Nevertheless, rectangular-shaped frames were popularized by figures such as Benjamin Franklin, and there are more derivatives than ever before.
Rectangular frames bring in some angle to a round face and can introduce a more masculine, linear and professional look. A good offshoot from this design is one without the lower part of the front frame. This characteristic makes the frames lighter and easier to see through. This type of eyewear is prevalent among many people all over the world of all genders and ages. Rectangular shaped eyeglasses can be worn throughout the year casually and with professional attires as well.
