The Sunglasses That Just Work Perfectly For Heart-Shaped Faces

We're heart-eyes for these shades.

Last Updated on May 18, 2023

If you’ve ever wondered which sunglasses to go for, the best and easiest place to start is by looking at your face shape.

There are many variations, but three of the main shapes are round, oval and heart-shaped.

If you’ve got a heart-shaped face, you won’t have a hard time in your pursuit as most frames will look great on you.

There are, however, a few styles of shades that work well to complement your jaw and make it appear wider, offering balance when you wear them.

An easy way to get inspiration is to look at celebrities with a similar look, like Vanessa Hudgens, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie.

Aviators and cat-eye styles that never go out of style are perfect for you – and luckily, there are so many delicious pairs dropping all the time.

I’ve scoured the internet to find those best suited to heart-shaped face and I’ve found so many I love, from Missoma, Poppy Lissiman, Ray-ban, and more.
