Using our helpful face shape selector, you can not only determine which face shape you have but also which glasses to choose for round face shapes..

Best glasses for a round face

If you have a round face, you may find that your facial features, such as cheekbones, are not particularly prominent or defined. Celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore are among those of us who have beautiful round faces. 

In this case, you’ll want to opt for glasses that help to elongate, define and add structure to your face, such as rectangular glasses, cat eye glasses and oversized glasses. This is the same for sunglasses, too! Read on to get a better understanding of the types of glasses that best suit your face shape. 

Oversized glasses 

If you have a round face shape, you may want to opt for oversized glasses to create a bolder and more defined look. Oversized glasses can help to lengthen and elongate your face and make the glasses the central focus. We stock many oversized glasses of varying colours and patterns that can help frame your eyes and face. Why not try Banks in Rose Gold, Malia in Blue or Forest Eco in Black?  

Cat-eye glasses

Cat-eye glasses seem to be a constant fashion trend, and they don’t look to be disappearing from the trends any time soon. These elegant and fashionable glasses suit a variety of face shapes, but are arguably the best and most flattering glasses for round faces. Cat-eye glasses are particularly flattering for people with round faces, due to their ability to accentuate your eyes and draw attention to your cheekbones. If you want to rock a new pair of cat-eye glasses, give Lux in Purple or Jordan in Rose Gold a try.

Aviator glasses

Accentuate your best facial features with aviator style glasses! These glasses are a perfect middle ground between cat eye and oversize, and choosing a darker and more stand-out frame can help brighten up your face and complement your features. For the ultimate bold aviators, try our new Tyler in Blue or Black. If you want to opt for a less oversize or bold look, try Kent in Black!

Rectangular glasses

Rectangular glasses are popular for different face shapes, as they are versatile and suit numerous face shapes. Rectangular glasses look great on round faces, as they can help make your eyes look bigger and become the central focus of your face. Opting for thicker frames can also help your eyes stand out and draw attention to your facial features. Our selection of rectangular and square glasses can help you feel confident about your face shape. Give Blake in Olive, Carson in Blue, or for a bolder look, Forest Eco in Tortoise a go!
