Sunglass frames are great accessories for any outfit. No matter if you wear sunglasses every day or you need the glasses for the perfect summer shades, you need to choose the right pair of glasses. But since there are many styles available in the market, so how can you determine which one would be best for you? As the taste of sunglasses is subjective, there is no rule of thumb for choosing the perfect pair. With rounded glasses, you can balance the proportion of your face shape if you have a strong jaw.

How Can You Determine If You Have a Round Face Shape?

-First of all, tie back your hair and look at the mirror.

-Then observe which part of your face is the widest. If the cheekbones are the widest part of your face, then most probably you have a round-shaped face.

-Then have a look at the jaw shape of your face. If your chin is round, soft and doesn't have any points or shaped angles, then that is also an indication that you have a round-shaped face too.

-And finally, another characteristic of a round-shape is that the length and width of the face are almost equal. Otherwise, you might have a long or oval-shaped face.

How To Choose Sunglass Shapes For Round Faces?

When choosing a pair of sunglasses, you want to make sure they fit well and look flattering on you. There are many ways to make sure of that when shopping for a new pair of glasses! Keep the following tips in mind on for your next eyewear purchase:

-If you are in doubt, select frames, that have features and contrast your own. If you have a round facial structure, then blocky, angular glasses suit you the best. Square or rectangular frames add structure to softer features.  

-In case if you don't want to amplify to the roundness of your face, then you can avoid small, round or oval glasses. These types of frame will accentuate the roundness of your face and make it look even more rounded.

-Go for bolder colours, thick rims, and bigger sizes. After drawing the eye of your glasses, you can create the illusion of wider eyes and a more balanced face shape.

-Try the sunglasses in person if you can. Although you may like the pictures of the sunglasses, the thing is you can never know for sure if the sunglasses will be flattering for your face shape or your skin tone or hair colour.

10 Best Glasses For Round Face

  1. Square Eyeglasses

If your face is round-shaped, then square sunglasses would be the best option for you. If the frames are wide, then it adds more balance to the soft features, enhances the face, and make a face appear slimmer and longer. Square shaped sunglasses are fashionable and distinctive, and these sunglasses even suitable for completely round and circular faces.

 

  1. Browline Eyeglasses

Browline eyeglasses with perfect semi-rimless frames are another excellent option for male and female round faces. Although these frames don't add many angles, the silhouette is useful since it combines the illusion of length and balance—additionally, these eyeglasses slimming down the structure of the face.  

 

  1. Hipster Glasses

Although hipster glasses have not the eyeglasses shape technically, there are a couple of reasons to mention about these:

-First of all, for a round face, it is ideal to choose from a variety of thick "geek-chic" square glasses. These types of frames have the structures that can give the effect of a well-defined silhouette.

-Secondly, hipster style glasses are very trending right now, and there are several options and shapes for this style. You can easily find this style of frames for a pair of optical frames as well as a pair of sunglasses.

 

  1. Cat-eye sunglasses

Cat-eye sunglasses are one of the most fashionable and flattering eyeglasses shape for round faces. Particularly women like to wear cat-eye frames because these sunglasses have the upswept shape that lifts the face and slims it down. These winged sunglasses can be a good option if you have a round-shaped look, as long as you pick frames with angular lines and stay away from rounder shapes. Not only ladies but even the upper portion of the face of gents look very stylish as well when wearing.

 

  1. Navigators/ Aviators

Many have questions in their mind that can round-shaped face wear aviator sunglasses? The answer is YES! But not all the styles, the navigator is the best option in this regard, since it will bring a squarer silhouette. The navigator is an excellent choice for a round face, particularly for a masculine shape.

 

  1. Colorful Eyeglasses

These types of glasses don't get lost on your face. And that's the reason they are a much better option to frame the face well against clear or even the nude frames. If you are looking for colorful frames, then I can recommend you to stick with deep or bright colors and avoid the glasses which are close to your skin tone. For darker skin tones, light-colored frames usually fit best.

 

  1. Rectangular Frames

Classic rectangular frames are the first and foremost eyeglasses frames. These will match nicely with your curvy features. Both men and women can choose a rectangular frame for their face without any worries.

 

  1. Oversized Sunglasses

No matter what is the shape of your face, oversized frames work better for a round face. You can select a pair of colored and thick-rimmed frames to make your glasses stand out. Oversized glasses are suitable even if you go out for a party or go to a sea beach for roaming around with friends and family.

 

  1. D-Frame Sunglasses

D-Frame Sunglasses can be a good option if you have a round face. These types of frames add thickness to your face and make your look with the glasses stand out without accentuating the roundness of the face.

 

  1. Wayfarer inspired Sunglasses

You can opt for wide wayfarer sunglasses with a thick frame or a slightly winged browline. These will stylishly balance your angles and the curves of your face. For both eyeglasses and sunglasses, I recommend you to go for frames with lengthy temples and marginally sloping or straight browlines.
