What shape of eyeglasses is best for a round face?
Round face shapes benefit from glasses with sharp angles to compliment softer facial angles and features on the eyewear to highlight the upper part of the face. For both men and women, round faces tend to have wider cheekbones, a matching jaw and forehead width and a softly angled chin. The best glasses for round faces include rectangular, geometric, flat-top and cat-eye frames.
When browsing for eyewear, look for glasses with the following features:
- Bold angles, such as with geometric glasses or cat-eye glasses.
- Frames without an exaggerated lens dip towards your cheeks, such as rectangular frames. Avoid teardrop style glasses.
- Look for strong brow lines to attract attention to the upper section of the face, such as frames with a double brow bar.
The “roundness” of your face shape depends on your unique features, as no two faces are the same! This face shape sometimes blends into oval, heart or square face shapes. When looking at your round face shape, it’s best to consider the features you love most and how to compliment them, such as how to bring out your cheekbones when you smile or how to highlight strong eyebrows when you make fun expressions.
The Best Glasses for Round Faces
Rectangular Frames for Round Faces
Rectangular frames are perfect for round faces because they bring attention to the top part of your face. A very trendy and currently popular style of rectangular frames for round faces is the D-shape frame, which is close to a rectangular shape and easily compliments the cheeks in round face shapes with wing tips. The D-shape style is very similar to the cat-eye style.Browse All Rectangular Frames
Geometric Frames for Round Faces
Geometric frames have many unique varieties and are so much fun to experiment with. If you’re looking for a truly unique style, geometric frames look great on men and women seeking sharper angles to their eyewear. Be aware to avoid frames that may dip too low below your cheeks or reach too high over your eyebrows, and stick to frames that are more wide than tall.Browse All Geometric Frames
