The sun has finally graced us with its glorious presence and we couldn’t be happier. Alongside a trusty SPF and bottle of water, protecting our eyes with a pair of sunglasses is a must as we bask in the rays.
But with so many shapes and styles out there, it can be tricky to choose the best frames for you. One of the best ways to decide this is to consider the shape of your face, as different shape frames will quite literally frame your face in different ways, and some more flattering than others.
We’ve broken it down face shape by face shape which frames will compliment your features the most, from Bottega Veneta cat eye shapes to oval frames from Gucci, we’ve got a little something for everyone…
#1 What style sunglasses will suit my face shape?
- Heart shaped faces – Cat Eye and Square

#2 Heart Shaped Faces
If you have quite defined cheekbones, a broader forehead and a more pointed chin, then you have a heart shaped face.When shopping for your new sunglasses a cat eye or square frame will be the most flattering for you. Choose thick and dark frames to highlight your face, such as the Bottega Veneta Classic Acetate Sunglasses. Square frames also compliment a heart shaped face beautifully. With their retro style and thicker frames, square shapes draw attention to the centre of the face.
