Face Shape: Men's Round

Men's Round

Sunglasses for Your Face Shape

The perfect glasses for round faces offer a contrast to your facial contours with geometric frames. Look for square or rectangular sunglasses to introduce some straight angles. Classic wayfarer frames in a narrow profile will slim your face and draw attention upward. Instead of aviators, try navigator-style glasses for round face shapes; their geometric corners are more flattering than the aviators’ curved frames. Check out sunglasses with browline details, like clubmasters, or draw attention to your eyes by drawing a line across your brow with double-bridge details.

What Face Shape Do I Have? Round

Are you wondering how to determine your face shape? Look in the mirror and look at the overall length and width of your face. Take note of any pronounced angles. Here are some characteristics to help you determine if you have a round face:
  • You have no sharp angles
  • The length and width of your face are very similar
  • Square or Rectangular sunglasses introduce straight angles.
The fullness of a round face often makes for a youthful, open appearance. Maybe that’s why the circular-shaped face abounds in Hollywood — think celebrities like Leonardo Dicaprio, Aziz Ansari, and Chris Hemsworth are examples of men with a round face shape.

Best Sunglasses for Round-Shaped Faces


  • The only style of sunglasses that do not usually work on rounder facial shapes are round sunglasses.
  • However, even those can work if you choose small frames that sit within the bounds of the face.
