There are sunglasses that complement your distinct facial features, and there are some that don’t. The easiest way to remember which shades are good for which face shapes is by following this simple rule: if you face is one shape, wear the opposite frame shape.
So, if you have a round face shape, choose bold retro square sunglasses or cat eyes to add dimension to your features. On the other hand, do not, for the love of what’s good in this world, try to pull off round sunglasses. They will only add extra width and curviness to your round face shape.
Don’t have a round face? Check out our Face Shape Guide to steer you in the right direction. Without further ado, here are some of our favorite shades for round face shapes.
Retro Square Sunglasses
If you have a round face shape, retro square shades will be your newest best friend. You can go for something more classic, such as our Arcadia shades, play with clear frames as seen in the Jackson, or be bold with a brow bar in our Bellamy shades. You really can’t go wrong with any of these.
Because of the emphasis on the brow, these sunglasses are also a good option if you have a round face shape, as they will add straight lines to your features. We recommend our Bluegrass, Belmar, and Nebula shades.
