Cat Eye Sunglasses

This design is an especially appealing style for those with square- or heart-shaped faces. In addition to the classic cat eye styles, you can also expect to find modern variations on this theme next year, including monochrome and printed alternatives.

This design is already making a comeback, and is expected to be back in the fashion spreads in full force by the summer of 2011. This style features an eye-catching design that can go well with a wide variety of outfits, from a breezy summer dress to a sophisticated business suit.

  1. I attended a trunk show for Christian Dior sunglasses and found a new offering that was exactly the same as the Christian Dior frames that I bought and kept from the 80's. Now they were selling for over $400.00. I ran home and dug mine out of a storage every color! I felt pretty smart that day. Cherry Kay

  2. I wear sunglasses year round since I live in the sunshine state, although we have had more rain this year than ever before. I have LOTS of sunglasses in lots of shapes and colors. There is always one more pair calling my name. LOL


  3. I never leave the house without my sunnies, or I feel almost naked! I have a few pairs, but my favourite are actually the cheapest pair I've ever brought, and they even have a little bit of sparkly bling on the sides :)

  4. Love the cat eyes,(as they take in the 50's) but the retros would suit me best.
