It can feel challenging to find the right frames for a round face shape. With so many choices, it can be difficult to narrow down glasses that are flattering, stylish, and functional for round faces.

A round face shape is most similar to a square face shape but with softer edges. Round face shapes are sometimes accompanied by bigger cheeks which need to be accommodated for when picking out frames that will flatter and highlight the right areas.


Rectangular Frames offset the soft edges of a round face shape and make the face appear longer. They are also a classic and timeless style with many flattering options for both men and women. Rectangular frames are a great safe option for round faces.

Rectangle Frame Options:

Marc Jacobs




Similar to rectangular, square frames add balance to a round face shape and give a slimming look while also adding more pronounced angles.


Calvin Klein

Ray Ban


Cat-Eye frames have come back into style in recent years. A popular design from the ’50s and 60s, Cat-Eye frames added a fun versatility to the changing fashion world. The upward angles of the frame draw the face up and elongate the chin. 


Tiffany & Co.


Types of Frames for round faces to avoid

As usual with the list of Do’s comes the list of Do-not’s. With a round face, there is a delicate balance of working angles vs contrasting lines. Types of frames to avoid would be small oval frames along with round frames and geometrically shaped frames. Frames that are too angular and bulky will overwhelm a round face and make it appear bigger


Sunglass options for round face shapes

What about the best sunglasses for round face shapes? There are many different options to choose from when it comes to sunglasses for a round face shape. Sunglasses are a great way to play around with different frame shapes that you might otherwise not wear with clear lenses. 



A fan favorite is the classic Cockpit Aviator from Ray-Ban. (Insert picture). These sunglasses compliment a variety of face shapes while being trendy and stylish. There are also great aviator options from Guess, Tiffany & Co., Prada, Costa, and more. 



Cat-Eye Sunglasses are a fun option for round faces. The versatility of the frame makes it a great look for both clear lenses and sunglass lenses while giving a fashion-forward statement. 


Regardless of which frame you choose the most important factor is that YOU feel confident in your frames! Wisconsin Vision's skilled optometrists and staff are ready to help you find the best frames for your face shape.
