Having gone out of fashion a while ago, they have experienced a resurgence of success and are recommending their original appearance, friendly and trendy. Our guide will teach you a little about them and help you figure out if they suit you.
A little history ...
Do you know when the first round glasses appeared? That was a very long time ago .. At that time it was only round rings without brackets, which were attached to the nose. These types of visual aids resembling a binocular were used for centuries before the first oval-shaped eyeglass frames appeared. In the following years, the round models fell into oblivion thanks to the new forms such as Pantos, Wayfarer and Aviator. In the early 1960s, they conquered a large audience thanks to John Lenon, the founder of the mythical Beatles Band. The success of the round glasses is also strongly associated with the hippie movement.
In the early 2000s with the release of the first movie of the saga Harry Potter, demand picked up again.
With the recent return of the vintage style, round glasses are once again popular, and if you pay attention, you will see more and more on the faces around you. But be aware of fashion tastes: Before you decide on round glasses, make sure that they fit you.
Round glasses and face shapes
The round glasses are not suitable for all types of faces, pay attention to the shape of the eyebrows or cheeks. The rules of harmony that apply to wearing glasses require attention to a certain contrast. Round glasses are therefore usually provided for angular, rectangular and square faces. They should soften the properties. For example, they bring a certain balance into an oblong face. To find out which shape you have, stand in front of a mirror and pull your hair backwards. You will then be able to discover the dominant shape of your face.
If you have a square face:
They have a square face when it is as long as it is wide, regular and angular and has a strong jaw. The round glasses are good for square faces, but you should avoid disproportionately large frames (oversize): they give the face too much hardness. Look for a fine frame and bridge to add character to your face.
Rectangular faces are angular and longer than wide. The round glasses are perfect for these types of faces, they sweeten the personality.
The forehead of a triangular face is wider than the lower part. This type of face can only wear round glasses if they have a fine and reasonably wide frame that does not fall too low.
Round face shape:
The round face is as long as it is wide and without corners. If your face meets this description, round glasses are not recommended from the outset. On the other hand, if you want to take on the roundness, smoothness and youthfulness of your facial features and highlight them, they are perfect for you. Round glasses with tinted lenses give your face a touch of sophistication, as opposed to opaque lenses
Oval face shape:
Without an angle, the oval face is longer than it is wide and is suitable for wearing glasses of all shapes. The round glasses fit perfectly and give you a youthful appearance.
By the way, if your head is relatively small, opt for smaller glasses; For larger heads, choose large frames.
Comfort and Aesthetics: Some other criteria that you should consider when choosing your round glasses
It is important to emphasize that round glasses can quickly become uncomfortable if they are not adapted to the face. This is sometimes the case if they are a little too big. To avoid having the glasses over your cheeks, you should make the effort to smile as much as possible while trying it out. If it touches your cheekbones, you should try another pair.
In this respect, round glasses are not recommended for those with round cheekbones. It is indeed necessary to know that they emphasize the roundness: they give you a touch of "little girl look".
Another important detail to consider when choosing your round eyeglasses concerns the eyebrow aspect. For a perfect aesthetic effect, the frame of your glasses must match the line of your eyebrows. Round glasses are therefore not recommended for people with long and straight eyebrows. In addition, it is important to pay attention to the size of the glasses: they should not be higher than your eyebrows and hide them.
Round glasses: for what kind of personality?
Round glasses do not have to match all temperaments. First of all, they attract those who can accept their personality as it is, with clarity and clairvoyance, and who are not afraid to attract attention, to be different. Yes, wearing round glasses requires a bit of boldness and means that we are a bit unique, like Janis Joplin, John Lennon or the character of Harry Potter.
Then you must know that the round shape sends out a message: it is nice, unpretentious, warm and even funny. The round glasses invite you to contact, exchange and are therefore often seen in the eyes of intellectuals and artists. They look modern, trendy and inviting.
