Frames and Face Shapes: Round

Victor LopesFrames for Fashion

We continue our recommendation of frames for those with a ROUND face. A round face is characterized by having more gradual curving lines. Round is also defined where the width and length of the face appear to be about the same and there are no obvious angles to the face. In this case, the goal of the glasses is to make the face appear longer and thinner. Choose wide rectangles or other short geometric shapes. Try frames with hinges located above eye level or a higher bridge or contracting coloured bridge which can help to lengthen the face. Some celebrity examples with round faces are Jennifer Hudson and Leonardo DiCaprio.
