5 Sunglasses Trends That Were Made for Round Faces

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, in order to pick out sunglasses for round faces, we're looking to the examples set by some of the most stylish women we know.

Be it Selena Gomez, Beyoncé, or Gigi Hadid, each of the style stars ahead has a round-shaped face—essentially categorized by having the same height and width and a structure that's more curved than defined—but they don't all agree on just one sunglasses silhouette. 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.

Rectangular frames have a similar contrasting effect as the squares. However, as Gigi Hadid shows us, this elongated silhouette feels a bit more unexpected.
