Rectangular and square frame glasses are your best match if you have a round face. Frames that are wider than the face add more balance to your soft features, enhance your face and can make it appear longer and thinner. Ray-ban wayfarers are a great option for those looking for that everyday, versatile pair.
Tip: Going with bold colours can add shape and dimension to round faces.
Upswept frames are flattering on almost every face shape. The style gives your face a lifting effect and makes it more contoured. One of the most popular glasses styles, this style can be good for round faces as long as you choose frames with angular lines, and stay away from rounder shapes. Generally, squared cat-eye frames that have been shaped into the classic cat eye silhouette will compliment your round features. You can opt for models that rock a thick browline and a slim metal lower part.
This type of frame doesn’t add a lot of angles, but its silhouette is particularly useful, as it adds balance and creates the illusion of length, effectively slimming down the appearance of the face. This semi-rimless style is more easily found in optical glasses rather than sunglasses.
Demi Lovato is a big fan of this style!
Some argue that aviator sunglasses are best suited for those with an oval face or square face. But, a good case can be made for aviator frames, as they can frame round-shaped faces and help balance the face.
Take a note out of Olivia Palermo's playbook and go for a transparent aviator, making it less severe on your rounded features.
Generally, it's advised that those with a round or oblong face steer clear of sunglass frames that are round as these can make your face look rounder than it actually is. But, that being said - Miranda Kerr makes a mean case for oversize sunnies on a rounded face.
