Angular frames, including rectangular, cat-eye and wayfarer styles, are the best fit for round faces. Eyeglass wearers with round faces should avoid round or oversized frames, which are not as flattering.
The right eyeglass frames can make a personal statement, much like a piece of fine jewelry or the right pair of shoes. Experts say the shape of eyeglass frames should contrast with the shape of a person's face for the most flattering looks. Round faces generally feature full cheeks, a wide forehead and a rounded chin. Rectangular frames, especially those with narrow lenses, tend to make round faces appear longer and narrower. In addition, frames look best on round faces when they rest above the cheeks and do not sit too low on the face.
