Best reading glasses for your round face shape

Hi, I personally have a rounder face shape and use reading glasses practically all day. It would be good to know what type of glasses use for each form of face shape, because reading glasses have different shapes than sunglasses.


The same golden guidelines for finding a pair of sunglasses that flatter your face shape apply to reading glasses as well, which are:


    Golden apple Add definition to your baby face by making your jawline slightly angular

    Golden apple Make your face look narrower around the cheekbone area

    Golden appleElongate your face by wearing a pair of reading glasses that draw the eye up and down instead of to the sides. Basically adding volume around your cheekbones only bring attention to the wideness and roundness of your face.

It means that for your round face shape, rectangular frames with slightly rounded corners will look good on you.

I've seen many women wear narrow glasses which made their faces look even rounder and wider because the frames weren't big enough to taper around and "camouflage" their cheekbones - the widest part of their face.

Rectangular glass frames look particularly good on round face shapes. Cat eye'ish reading glasses are also flattering because they draw the eye upwards and has an elongating effect on your face shape.

Hope this helps.

How to Pull Off Red Glass Frames?

Would I have to watch what colours I wear? I bought them but haven't brought them home yet. They look fine on my face; I feel like they make my eyes stand out.

I'm Asian, really light skin. Dark hair brown highlights but they're fading.

Any advice?


I personally think it is perfectly fine to wear red with whatever color you decide to put on, as long as the glasses are solid colored without any busy prints or details (except for neutral metals such as gold and silver).

The red glasses work as a focal point creating a confident look (and yes, you need to be confident with them!), so it's important to combine the reading glasses just a few colors (red with for example blue or turquoise is a nice and fun color combo!) and details all together in an outfit to avoid looking overdone.

I used to own a pair of red reading glasses when I was in high school - I switched to black because I grew out of the artsy look, and wanted something more classy and versatile.

Hope this helps!
