The Best Styles for a Round Face Shape

The Best Styles for a Round Face Shape

If you’ve got a round face shape, finding the perfect glasses can be a game-changer. With the right frames, you can accentuate your features and express your unique style effortlessly. At Zenni, we understand the importance of finding glasses that not only fit well but also complement your face shape.

Determining Your Face Shape

First things first, let’s determine if you have a round face shape. Measure the width of your face from cheekbone to cheekbone, then measure the length of your face from your hairline to your chin. If the width and length are approximately equal, and your jawline is soft and curved rather than angular, chances are you have a round face shape. Embrace those lovely curves!

The Best Styles

Now that you’ve identified your face shape, let’s explore the best glasses styles to complement it.

  1. Angular Frames: Angular frames add definition to a round face by creating contrast with soft features. Look for geometric shapes like square frames to sharpen your look.
  2. Rectangular Frames: Rectangular frames elongate the face, balancing out the roundness. Opt for frames that are wider than they are tall to create the illusion of length.
  3. Cat-Eye Frames: Cat-eye frames are a playful choice for round faces. The upswept corners draw attention upwards, adding lift to your features and creating a flattering silhouette.
  4. Browline Frames: Browline frames feature bold upper rims that draw focus to the top half of your face, balancing out the roundness. They’re classic yet contemporary, perfect for everyday wear.

Styles to Avoid

While there are plenty of glasses styles that can complement a round face shape, there are also a few to steer clear of.

  1. Circular Frames: Round frames can exaggerate the roundness of your face, so it’s best to avoid them if you’re trying to create balance.
  2. Oversized Frames: While oversized frames can make a statement, they can also overwhelm a round face. Opt for frames that are proportionate to your face size to avoid looking disproportionate.
