Struggling to find sunglasses to suit your round face shape? You’ve come to the right place.

It’s never easy finding flattering shades, but there are a few things to look for. When it comes to round faces, contrast is the way to go. Choose sunnies that have a sharp angle or a bit more height to complement your face shape.

There’s nothing wrong with breaking the rules though. Wear whatever you feel confident in and the rest will take care of itself.

But if you don’t know where to start, we’re here to help. Here are the best sunglasses for round faces, with cat-eye, square and oversized styles from Rayban, QUAY, Urban Outfitters and more.
