Glasses for Heart Shaped Faces

If you’ve got a heart shaped face, various facial features will have varying widths. Sometimes this face shape is also referred to as triangle shaped. Celebs like Emily Ratajkowski have this shape, which can include these characteristics:

• Wider forehead and cheekbones
• Tapered, narrow chin
• Cheekbones are typically high and angled

For your face shape, it’s best to find frames that are wider than your forehead. The trick is just to have proportions play out, finding frame shapes that balance the varying widths of your face. The best frames will elongate your face while balancing the definition of your chin.

Smooth, rounded contours can provide contrast. You can also add visual interest by echoing your face shape with two-tone frames, or adding an angled cateye to sharpen your look.


Give rounded contours a try. These frames come in varying shapes – play with fuller lenses like the Kinney, or slightly smaller retro shapes like the Seville. The Hampton is a versatile customer favorite too for its universally flattering shape.

A good cateye does wonders – it’s like Botox, says our head designer Elena Doukas. While we’re not going for Botox-level looks just yet, the new Andalusia & Clare V. collab are sweetly feminine and flatter most faces.

How about some shape-shifting? The progressive
Van Buren, Toledo, and Wilson Sun Shield are new sights to behold. There’s also the Grayson, for a new style of acetate aviator that’s slightly squared.
