6 Sunglass Styles For a Round Shape Face

Celebrities wearing sunglasses

Who doesn’t love a good pair of sunglasses? Or Should I say who doesn’t NEED a good pair of sunglasses? 

When we live on a bright & sunny island like Singapore we think it would be safe to say, that sunglasses are a very practical accessory. It is important to own a pair (or several) that not only provide protection from the sun’s strong glare but styles that you feel amaze in at the same time.  Choosing that “suitable” pair can be a difficult task no matter what face shape you have but we've chosen to focus this week on the round as there are some conflicting opinions on what will suit this face shape the best.

People's perception of themselves when they look in the mirror when they try on sunglasses can be in fact quite negative, have you ever heard or said yourself "oh gosh NO these don't suit me!!!" whereas in fact most of the time you actually look pretty awesome, but we know it really comes down to being totally comfortable so FEAR NOT WYLDones, we have a quick guide to helping you select the best sunglasses for you round face beauties. On one of our previous blog posts we have a guide to other face shapes so can check it out here.

NB: Round faces generally have key features like a wide forehead, full cheeks and rounded chin.

Characteristics of Round Face Shapes

Wayfarers are fabulous round face glasses as the thick bridge on its frames will direct people’s attention, offsetting the fuller cheeks.

(5) Aviator

Aviators, such as the ones in Le Specs have adjustable nose pads that would prevent frames from sliding and resting on fuller cheeks. With a snap of a finger, these minimalistic designs will immediately make any outfit appear high street chic!

(7) Round

Some believe that round shape faces should avoid circular frames as they tend to emphasize one’s "roundness". However, we believe that comfort = confident. So rock it round if you're feelin' it!
