All About Round Glasses

The grandfather of frames

Originally created out of necessity, the earliest pair of round glasses dates back to the 1200-1300s, and was essentially two magnifying glasses connected together and designed to sit on top of your nose.
 
Fast forward to the 1700s, temples similar to modern day glasses were introduced, and came in simple wire designs that today’s business moguls and artists adore. By the 1900s, manufacturers began to explore different materials and shapes, which gave rise to more iconic styles like the cat eye, browline, and oversized frame.
 

Who should wear round glasses?

Simple, elegant, and brimming with intellectual appeal, it’s easy to understand why many are drawn to the heritage style. While we believe anyone can rock their favorite frames, round glasses do have a rep for being trickier to pull off compared to other frame shapes.
 
But, with the right proportions and colors, you’ll be surprised with how flattering they can be on several face shapes. To find your perfect match, check out our guide to matching your frame shape to your face shape.
 

Styling round frames

Round glasses can be worn both casually and formally, making the perfect accessory for virtually any outfit. A neutral or metallic frame will always look smart and put-together, but if you’re one to make a bold fashion statement, go for an eye-catching frame in jewel toned hues or striking patterns.
 
As with any frame, you’ll want to select a size that fits your face perfectly. To make sure you get the most flattering and comfortable fit, take a read of our frame measurement guide.
