Cat eye sunglasses are rooted from the 50s/early 60s fashion, They were created as a way of beautifying women’s eyeglasses in a feminine way. Adding a chic touch of glam and vintage to your look. The cat eye is a timeless women’s sunglass style – interpreted in various stylish ways by our leading fashion designers, which makes cat eye shades a versatile accessory piece that anyone, no matter personal style, can wear!
I personally love how the top bridge of these sunglasses gives a quirky edge among the sea of fashionistas (me included) wearing square and rounded frame shapes. They inject the perfect (but subtle) spiff to a basic tee and jeans-outfit.
THE STYLSTS ADVICE: These cats eyes sunglasses will look good on almost anyone, so how do you know what pair is right for you? First, start with colors that compliment and enhance your best facial feature, like your hair or eyes. You don’t want anything that will look too harsh on your face since the shape of these glasses are pretty extreme. Second, choose a shape that contrasts your face shape. Long faces should go for wider frames, round and square faces should wear narrow frames, and diamond faces should choose frames with detailing or accents on the top. Basically choose the opposite of your face shape for balance. And third, wear them with your best self confidence !
Cat eyeglasses may be the hottest trend right since last year now, but it has a long history of making women look beautiful. These glasses were popularized by celebrities of the day such as Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and Audrey Hepburn in the now iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
