Sunglasses For Round Faces

Round Faces

The width of your face is almost equal to its length, allowing you to trace an imaginary circle around the edge. Soft lines, full cheeks and no sharp edges are all general characteristics of a round face.

With round faces, the task of sunglasses is to elongate your features, making them as subtle as possible. This usually means avoiding glasses with round lenses, which tend to accentuate the roundness of your face. Instead, go for glasses with square lenses, avoiding oversized varieties if possible. It is also advisable to check out thin framed glasses from fine brands, and take your pick from that selection.

Should I go for a trendy model for summer 2017, or a model that will never go out of fashion? What do you recommend?

Go for both! These days, sunglasses cover a huge range of products, with trendy and high-quality models varying from the most affordable to the most exclusive, and there's no need to sacrifice trendy aesthetics in favour of protection, comfort or features like polarised lenses. This year, many models are based on timeless vintage designs that combine the appeal of the past with today's technical innovations.
