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 to celebrities with a similar look, like Vanessa Hudgens, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie.

Aviators and cat-eye shades, 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.
