Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape: Heart

Those with heart-shaped faces can keep it sweet with all types of sunglasses. Whether you turn it up with a tortoiseshell style or round it out with a circular frame, you'll have plenty of options, including prescription glasses. So what is a heart-shaped face, and how can you style it with the just-right eyewear? Read ahead for the details

What Is My Face Shape?

Faces come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Knowing your face shape can help you amp up your style and find head-turning frames. 

Heart-Shaped Faces

Heart-shaped faces essentially follow an inverted triangle silhouette. The forehead is the widest part of the face, while the chin is the narrowest — which roughly follows a heart outline. Frames with patterns, such as trendy tortoiseshell ones, draw attention to the eyes and cheekbones on a heart-shaped face. If you're on the lookout for a bold shape, squares and rounds can provide a balancing contrast to a pointed jawline. 

Other Face Shapes

  • Square: Square faces are all about angular features, pairing well with contrasting round glasses or complementing square frames. 
  • Round: Round faces are as wide as they are long. Frames with straight lines help balance the face's soft silhouette. 
  • Oval: Oval faces are similar to round faces, but they're longer than they're wide. Like round faces, they also look great in frames featuring straight lines. 
  • Triangle: Triangle faces are the opposite of heart-shaped faces, featuring a forehead that’s narrower than the jaw. Browline, cat eye, and square sunglasses go perfectly with them.  

Smaller: Size matters. Along with oversized sunglasses, you can pick up small and medium frames from QUAY.

Finding the Best Sunglasses for a Heart-Shaped Face

A wide range of frames work for heart-shaped faces. So how can you find a fit to your heart's desire? Here are our top recs. 

Tortoiseshell Sunglasses: NOTORIOUS

Give them heart eyes with trendy tortoiseshell frames. Bold patterns like tortoiseshell draw attention to the eyes and cheekbones while bringing flair to every fit. Embrace this bold style with a NOTORIOUS frame. This luxurious shade touts a dramatic, outswept silhouette and metal hardware details. Wear it with your everyday looks for a little something extra, or use it to give your off-duty fits a pop. It’ll look timelessly cool with metallic accessories and an edgy leather jacket.

Statement Square Sunglasses: LEVEL UP

Frame your heart-shaped face with a statement square frame to get all the right angles. An elevated square is the just-right way to LEVEL UP your look. It’s no surprise that this is our most popular square style: Its chic metal brow bar and angled edges will turn heads your way immediately. For all of your bright times, get this style with polarized lenses to cut down glare. It works perfectly with a head-turning, high-fashion outfit (think a bright yellow blazer) or your everyday tee and jeans. 

Round Sunglasses: JEZABELL

Circular frames can bring balance to a heart-shaped face. This stylish silhouette is incredibly versatile for channeling that retro-cool feel. To have them do a double-take, pop on JEZABELL, a QUAY classic with glamorous oversized circular lenses and a sleek metal frame. It'll amp your outfit with a vintage vibe — add drip, and you'll be good to go. If you’re looking for the best glasses for a heart-shaped face, you can also get JEZABELL with clear Rx lenses.

Which Frames to Avoid for Heart Shaped Faces

If you've got a heart-shaped face, you can mix and match your look with a wide range of frames. But if you're wondering which frames you might want to avoid, consider skipping the rimless style, which might not pop out as much on a heart-shaped face. That said, you know your face best, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles — there are plenty of versatile frames out there for every face shape. Use our Virtual Try-On Tool to determine your face shape and find the just-right shades.
