“You want to counteract the fullness of the face,” says Whitford. Rectangle- and square-shaped sunglasses add angles to a round face, while wide frames help balance fullness.According to Sam Saboura, celebrity stylist and YouBeauty Style Expert, you can also try frames with contrasting colors or ones with a cat-eye shape to add a visual lift to your round face.
Stay away from frames that are curvy or round, which will add too much curve to a full face.
Here are the best frames for round-shaped faces:
* Rectangular sunglasses, like Natori’s sunglasses (pictured above), available at Zyloware
* Square-shaped sunglasses, such as Gucci’s square sunglasses with vented lenses
* Rectangle-shaped sunglasses, such as Fendi’s rectangle logo sunglasses
* Retro style sunglasses, such as Ray-Ban’s Wayfarers
