Heart- This face shape is wider at the forehead and narrows at the jawline. A cat eye or wayfarer shape will accentuate your sweet features the best. Opt for styles like:

  • Waikiki A classic wayfarer style in a rich hue that will brighten up your go-to summer outfit.
  • Fiji  A fresh pair of retro-inspired sunglasses made to show off your personality.
  • Key Largo This flattering style has both cat eye and wayfarer elements. A dark grey pair is a great alternative to black frames.

Oval- You have balanced features and the most versatile face shape! Play up your fab features with angular frames. Try on:

  • Maldives: A slick and iconic pair that is as lightweight as it is stylish!
  • Monte Carlo Add fashion forward flair with this squared style.
  • Waikiki  A tortoiseshell wayfarer style is the epitome of cool summer style.

Round- Round faces are equal in width and length, and have fuller cheeks. Stick to angular frames that add definition to your pretty face. Pick up a pair like:

  • Capri This alluring pair adds definition to both round and oval face shapes.
  • St. Barts Hint at your stylish inclinations and elongate your face with these over-sized butterfly shades in plum.   
  • Zanzibar These angular frames compliment your features. Pair these black shades with your brightest outfits.

This was such a great help! Whenever I wear sunglasses, I don't feel like they fit my face very well. After reading this, I realized I'm just not wearing the right shape of sunglasses. I have more of a heart shaped face, and I choose glasses that people with square heads should wear.

I really like the Aviator and rectangular sunglasses since I have an oval face. It's a little overwhelming trying to choose the right sunglasses when you're at the store. Your post is very helpful and info graphic make it easy for people to know which face shape you are and selection will be much easier. Choosing sunglasses by face shape is very useful.


Hi! in the picture, which one is the third sunglass next to the heart-shaped face?
