How to Choose Glasses for Heart Shaped Faces

How to Choose Glasses for Heart Shaped Faces


How do you choose the perfect frame for your heart shaped face? Check out our suggested features and frames below. 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 who wore our round shaped Hampton have a heart shaped face, which can include these features:

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

For your heart shaped face, it’s best to find eyeglass and sunglass frames that are wider than your forehead. The trick to your perfect frame 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 cat eye frame to sharpen your look.

OUR RECOMMENDED PICKS FOR HEART SHAPED FACES


ROUNDED FRAMES

Do heart shaped faces look good in rounded frames? Absolutely. The soft, rounded contours create the perfect contrast against the angles of your face. 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. Long story short, heart shaped faces can never go wrong with rounded frames.

CAT EYE FRAMES

A good cat eye 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. Stop asking whether the cat eye look is for you and check out our guide to Cat Eye Frames.
