Choosing Glasses for Round Faces

How to Choose

Glasses for Round Faces


If you’ve identified yourself with a round face from our Face Shape guide, you’ll have softer, curved facial features. Celebrities like Niall Horan have a similar face shape, which can include these characteristics:

• Rounded chin or curved jawline
• Wider forehead
• Fuller cheeks
• Width and length of face is proportional

To complement your face shape, look for angular frames that provide contrast, whether it’s a boxy frame or even a slight cateye. As always, fit is important — but for rounder faces especially, it is best to avoid oversized and too-tight frames.


RECOMMENDED PICKS FOR ROUND SHAPED FACES


SQUARE FRAMES
Try on a square shape for angles in even proportions. The Brooks is a versatile favorite that comes in an array of acetates. If you’re looking for a slimmer silhouette or a more custom fit, Grant is an option too.



RECTANGULAR FRAMES
Similar to the square frame, a rectangular frame’s linear lines help to provide angular contrast. Try a frame that hits higher on your cheek for a more traditional fit, like the Brooks. For a more coverage, try the Bentley.



SLIGHT CATEYE FRAMES
A cateye is a universally flattering frame because it lifts up your features. Try a slight unisex cateye like Milwood or our best-selling GLCO x Clare V. collab frame. Or square things out with Wellesley.
