Like Kirsten Dunst, you’ve got a soft, feminine face shape. Complement and contrast your perfectly symmetrical face with sharp, angular frames. Choose from Givenchy’s evergreen tortoiseshell rectangle sunglasses, to Balenciaga’s matrix-esque number (as seen on Kendall Jenner), or even an edgy yet elegant piece from Fendi.
Unlike your round and square-faced friends, you do not need to contrast the shape of your face, but “go with the flow”. With a broad forehead, high cheekbones and sharp chin like Victoria’s Secret model, Kelly Gale; complement your heart-shaped face with sunglasses of similar properties. That way, you can draw the attention to the bottom, and elongate your look. Think classic aviators from Ray-Ban, trendy frames from Dior, or even a fun-loving heart sunnies from A-Morir.
While this list is simply a guideline, feel free to go wild and try on various styles to find one that best suits your personal look! Remember, a right pair of frames can instantly elevate a casual ensemble to an #OOTD-worthy look.
