Sunglasses That Make the World Go ‘Round

Once the ultimate accessory for intellectuals in academia, round eyewear frames became the fashionable item for artists in the 1960s, and for the past five decades, they have been a favorite for many fashion conscious trendsetters, as well as cinema stars and politicians.

Round frames may make you think of the vintage Windsor style of round lenses encompassed with thin gold wire worn by past generations, but round eyewear has become über-trendy in modern fashion due to infinite combinations in size, material and color.

Those who wear round sunglasses are loved for the bold look these frames create for the wearer.

Who in the World Wears Round Frames

Wear round framed prescription eyewear and sunglasses, and you may find yourself following in the footsteps of musicians such as John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Elton John, and Ozzy Osbourne, as well as leaders such as Harry S. Truman and Ghandi, the celebrities David Letterman and Johnny Depp, Mary-Kate Ashley Olsen, Nicole Ritchie, and visionaries like Steve Jobs.

Even the beloved fictional character Harry Potter wears round eyeglasses.

Where You Can Get Yours

Round frames can be diminutive or oversized, so making the right statement in eyewear is important. Most eyewear designers offer round frames for their prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, but you can begin your search with some of these well-known brands.


  • The Emporio Armani 2017Z Sunglasses bring a contemporary yet eccentric touch to the traditional round frame. The matte blue color carries a contemporary vibe.


  • Bobbi Brown offers drama and glamour in larger round frames called the Bobby Brown BBR.
  • Karl Lagerfield’s over-sized masterpieces in Red or Ivory Velvet will call to your inner Hollywood starlet.

You too can wear round frames; they look fabulous on several types of face shapes. Don’t give up on eyeglasses with round frames just because your face is round. Today’s designers have added stylistic elements to their sunglasses that complement any face shape.

Round frames can sport a variety of unique design elements, such as double bridges, folding frames, sweat bars and even shields at the temporal corners
