Gone are the days when glasses were something to be embarrassed by. Now, four eyes are better than two: glasses have become the sleekest accessory for both men and women.
When choosing a new pair of glasses or sunglasses, the choices of frames and colors and shapes can be overwhelming, but the hottest look of the moment is round glasses. We’ve compiled a list of the internet’s best round glasses for men and women, including sunglasses in case this trend is too much of a long-term glasses commitment. Make sure to add one or two of these chic pairs to see for yourself just how fun and flattering these frames can be.
Best Women’s Round Glasses
Thin and shapely, these round specs add a touch of flair with thicker rims at the top and a tortoiseshell pattern near the temples. These prescription or nonprescription glasses are perfect for the woman looking for an update on a classic look — the black color and sleek, thin frame elevate any look. For those who love the shape but want a trendier color, Blair is also available in a rose gold with that same tortoiseshell detail on near the temple.
These spunky frames are perfect for the daring woman looking to keep some color in her everyday look. The thick frames with a slightly narrow fit are both sturdy and whimsical. If the bold sea green is too much for everyday wear, the Stockton eyeglasses also come in a classic whisky tortoise color, as well as a warmer honey brown called “striped beach.”
These frames are the epitome of classic: rounded brows, perfect medium fit, and a keyhole bridge detail. With a slightly larger and more square frame, this pair is great for those who just want to dip their toes into round glasses territory. The Whiskey Tortoise coloring is flattering for all skin tones. Also available in a lighter Striped Beach and a cool blue, Beach Glass.

Aviators are always in and a great way to stay on the rounded glasses trend while still sticking to something tried-and-true.
