When it comes to what sunglasses look best on a round-shaped face, the answers can be a bit subjective. After all, one lady might want to contrast the soft curves of her face with an angular style, while another is simply crazy for a cat eye. So to determine which sunnies currently looking amazing on women with round faces, we’re turning to five of them whose style we can’t get enough of.
Be it Selena Gomez, Beyoncé, or Gigi Hadid, the style stars ahead each have a round-shaped face—essentially categorized by having a height and width that are about the same and whose structure is more curved than defined— but they don't all agree on just one sunglasses silhouette. And thanks to their example, we've lined up five viable, on-trend options worth looking into.
Keep scrolling for the five sunglasses trends perfect for a round face (and probably most other faces, too).
Common style advice will tell you that a square sunglasses frame—a round face's contracting shape—is the perfect opposites-attract choice. While we'll argue it's not the only choice, they sure do look chic on Miranda Kerr at the airport.
Beyoncé opts for a round frame that mimics her face shape, however she chooses a thin wire frame for an accessory choice that doesn't overpower her features.
If you’re not ready to commit to a fully round frame, try a pair like Chrissy Teigen’s. The wide flat brim adds a linear quality to the face and dramatically extends beyond the width of your cheeks, while the half-moon bottom softens the silhouette.
The beauty of a cat eye frame is that it truly looks amazing on anyone. Selena Gomez's are no exception.
Rectangular frames have a similar contrasting effect as the squares. However, as Gigi Hadid shows us, this elongated silhouette feels a bit more unexpected.
