Shortly after Rhonda emerged in the early 1980's I noticed the scuttle difference in male and female eye wear. There are different shapes with softer lines. Here is how eyeglasses.com describes the differential:
Women's Eyeglasses Frames - Women's eyeglasses fashions evolve every year, and the prices and choices we offer make it affordable to have more than one pair of frames. Although women's eyeglasses tend to have softer lines and more feminine colors than men's eye wear, most frames are unisex and can be worn by either women or men. With a range of prices, frame shapes, and materials along with a variety of color combinations for both eye wear frames and lenses, Eyeglasses.com makes it easy to buy multiple ladies eyeglasses to suit different occasions such as work, school, or leisure. Depending upon the frame, our female customers find that they can often order two pairs of women’s prescription eyeglasses at far less cost than they would pay for one pair of women’s spectacles at a regular retail eyeglass store. There is no reason today why women's prescription eyeglasses styles not only can be trendy, but also sophisticated. If you are looking for a retro or modern, bold or conservative, trendy or classic look, Eyeglasses.com has your style. Women nowadays are looking for shapes and colors that either complement or contradict their features. A “complementary” frame fits in well with the facial structure, as well as the coloring of hair, skin, eyes, and wardrobe. A “contradictory” strategy is one in which the eyeglasses are designed to stand out, to exude confidence, creativity, and to project individuality. There is no right or wrong strategy, and many women have several eyeglasses frames so that they have choice when arranging the daily assemblage.

There is one other differential; your makeup does change, with/without glasses. Keep in mind that the eyes are one of your most important features and are typically the first facial feature noticed. According to Glamour Magazine: "Since glasses can sometimes make your eyes look smaller, the absolutely-no-makeup option is kind of off the table. At the very least, always apply black mascara to your upper and lower lashes for a full effect."
I do vary my glasses and see them as a fashion accent. I am not sure if I look better with/without glasses. At lease for driving, I always have my "feminine eye wear". How about you? Do you have feminine glasses and how did you purchase? Please share your "ESCAPE" stories and suggestions for eye wear.
