Round eyeglasses evoke elegance and classic style. They are a modern reinterpretation of the original classic that promises to keep you looking celeb-chic. Round glasses were recently popularised by Lady Gaga who has been wearing them all the time since “Paparazzi” video. Today it’s also Nicole Richie, Victoria Beckham and Mary-Kate Olsen who got inspired. But the fact is that no-one has ever worn round glasses in a more iconic way than John Lennon. Never ever.
Round sunglasses take a fresh, modern approach to a cool vintage look (did you know that round glasses were the first in that market and glasses have gradually become more and more rectangular). So it looks like glasses went back to their roots to dominate a 2010 and 2011 season in a more rounded way. Round sunglasses were seen in last spring’s runways of Proenza Schouler, Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors but a real madness started this year. Today, Massada and Topshop are following suit.
No one has worn round sunglasses in a more iconic way than John Lennon but there are still a lot of fashionistas trying to challenge that. Round sunglasses help soften sharp features such as a prominent jaw. There are many rounded frames that are a a modern take on a retro style. Find your inspiration on the runway. Fendi, Max Mara, Emporio Armani, presented the best rounded frames for 2017.
Go ahead and complete your outfit with these modern style sunglasses that feature a large round frame. Look for the shaded ones with a slight cat-eye cut to get a piece of chic Parisian style.
