Shaped like butterfly wings, butterfly sunglasses were first made popular by Kate Moss and Rihanna in the early 00s. The oversized nature of the sunglasses instantly gives them a high-glamour feel, which is what made them so appealing to stars across the globe. Don’t be afraid of these larger-than-life glasses: they have the power to complement and soften faces with strong lines.
Our selection of glasses includes frames with strong peaks at the edges, and softer, more delicate forms, in timeless muted tones, total black, or striking colors.
If you have a face that’s has more curves like a rounded or oval face shape, butterfly shades are a perfect match. In doubt on what face shape you have? Discover our editors' guide to choosing the perfect sunglasses for your face shape in our magazine.
