There’s a perfect pair (or pairs!) of glasses out there for everyone. With so many frames to choose from at Zenni, finding the most flattering style for your face can seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. We created a helpful infographic that breaks down which glasses are best for each face type, but in this post we’ll go in depth on finding the best glasses for a round face shape and then offer some of our favorites to make your choice a bit easier.
Choosing glasses for round faces
The width and length of a round face will be roughly similar. In order to elongate and play down the fullness of the cheeks, select a frame with strong angles and straight lines. Full-rim and semi-rimless glasses with rectangular or square frames are usually best for round faces.
Finding the style for you
Bold, plastic frames are an easy and versatile choice. Why not elevate your eyeglasses game with a fun pattern? These trendy square glasses come in a natural, woodgrain-inspired brown that pairs great with everything, especially autumn color palettes.
