Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape: Round

How do you round out your eyewear wardrobe if you've got a round face? If you're looking for sunglasses or glasses to sharpen your features and add angles, here's a guide on finding the right pair. From squares to shields, we'll help you hunt down the best sunglasses for a round face.

What Is My Face Shape?

Curious about how to determine your face shape? Here's where to start. Before we dive into our go-to QUAY sunglasses for a round face, let's discuss all of the face shapes out there

Round faces

Round faces feature an even ratio of width to height, showcasing curvy features like a rounded jaw. So, what is the ideal sunglass shape for a round face? Bring balance to your face by popping on sunglasses with straight lines to create angles. Rectangular and square frames are go-to's, but you can turn heads with those oversized and shield fits, too. 

Other face shapes

    • Oval: Oval faces are very similar to round faces, except they're longer than they're wide. Frames with straight lines also bring balance to these faces. 
    • Square: Square faces feature straight lines and defined angles, so they pair perfectly with circular frames that help soften their edges. 
    • Heart-shaped: Heart-shaped faces have wide foreheads and narrow jaws. With these faces, cat eye and aviator frames will be go-to picks.  
  • Triangle: Triangle faces are inverted heart-shaped faces. They feature a narrow forehead and broad jawline, and they look best in cat eye and browline sunglasses. 
    • Smaller: Size matters. If your face is small, pick up small and medium sunglasses for the just-right look. 

    Finding the Best Sunglasses for a Round Face

    No need to run in circles looking for the best picks. Here are our all-around favorite sunglasses for a round face.

      Square Sunglasses: ICY

      Square frames are failproof picks for round faces. Their straight edges bring angles to the curves on round faces for a balanced look. For a closet staple, keep it ICY with a go-to square. This haute square looks as cool as ice with its thick, reinforced temples. Grab a frame in mint, or go for a classic brown or black colorway. It’s perfect with a layered mesh top for going out, or a basic blouse and slacks for your everyday work edit.

      Oversized Sunglasses: EVER AFTER

      If you've got a round face, find your happily EVER AFTER with an oversized look. Big glasses pair well with round faces, and the more edges they have, the better. EVER AFTER is an easy-to-wear, sized-up injection frame available in a handful of lens options, including polarized lenses. It's also a square shape, so you'll get balancing angles from it, too. For a sleek festival ‘fit, it goes just right with a bralette and relaxed pair of jeans. 

      Shield Sunglasses: NIGHTFALL

      Round faces can block out the haters with shields as well. Many flat top shields wrap around the face as one single lens without nose pads or bridges. They can be a combo of the square and oversized frame shapes, so they can make for the ultimate statement. One of our faves is HINDSIGHT, which features a bold brow bar to keep the shade out. Choose from all the colors — you've got purple to orange, black pink fade, black, or even a rainbow option to keep it extra. 

      Frames to Avoid

      Narrow, oval, and round frames won't add angles and may throw off balance on a round face. That said, experiment with different shapes to see what works best for you. Some people actually love the way that circular silhouettes complement the curves on a round face. You never know what might be the perfect fit, so use our Virtual Try-On Tool to find out.

      Round faces can look flawless in a variety of frames, so stay stylish and on-trend with picks from QUAY’s New Sunglasses Collection
