Round Sunglasses - Circle Frames for Men & Women

Round shades are characterized by circular lenses and round frames that curve around the lenses. They were popularized in the 1960s and have become a classic style that is still popular today. Round glasses are often associated with a retro or vintage look, but they can also look quite modern.

There’s More to Round Sunglasses than You Might Think

Our round glasses selection could better be called the rounded sunglasses collection, because there’s more than one take on the round trend. We especially love vintage-inspired circle framed sunglasses. You may have heard this style referred to as teashades or “John Lennon” sunglasses” for the timeless vintage look of the metal frames that Lennon helped popularize. We also offer softer takes on round shaped sunglasses to flatter a broader variety of faces, like the Times, which blends the best of styling of circular shades and square eyewear. Choose from metal, acetate (plastic), and combination glasses for the perfect circle shades look for you.

Shop AO Circular Sunglasses

Our selection of circle glasses was developed to flatter all faces. If you have a round face, wear round glasses if you want to emphasize your soft features. For square and rectangular faces, round frames can balance out the angles of your face. Features like the keyhole bridge on the AO-1002, AO-1004, and Times can deemphasize a prominent nose. Check out all round styles below and use our virtual try-on feature to see how each pair of glasses looks on face before purchasing. Which frame is best for you? Play around to see how the acetate and metal frames impact the look.
