Sure, someone’s bound to crack a Harry Potter or John Lennon joke, but forget the haters. If you can pull off a true pair of round sunglasses, you can rock any accessory.

But even if those perfectly round pairs of ‘70s style round sunglasses aren’t for you, there are much more subtle pairs of round sunnies out there. Round sunglasses with a traditional frame are easily the safest pair of sunglasses— you can count on them to be universally flattering and always in style.
