Identifying the shape of your face correctly is the first step to finding the perfect pair of glasses for you. There are a lot of people who mistakenly think that they have a round face just because they are rather overweight or have chubby cheeks. However, one's body type actually has nothing to do with the shape of your face. You may be extremely slim but still have a round face.


So, before you start shopping for glasses for a round face, you first need to confirm whether you do have a round face. To do this, check the height and width of your face. If they are almost the same, then you either have a round or square face. Next, check if your face has angles or if your cheekbones stand out. If the edges are rounded and the cheekbones are not very distinct, then you certainly have a round face and you can start looking for glasses for a round face.

According to eyewear experts, the general rule for choosing glasses for round faces is to go for those that have some angles. Square, rectangular or cat eyeglasses are ideal. You might want to stay away from round eyeglasses and those that have very small frames as these will bring too much attention to the roundness of your face instead of creating a nice balance. Vintage eyeglasses for round faces are the best because they combine functionality with great style.
