Hey girls, how about those cat eye sunglasses?! I am so in love with this glasses trend for summer 2016. This trend is routed from the 50's and early 60's fashion. The cat eye is a timeless style that adds versatility to your wardrobe, and a hint of glam.
Cat eye sunglasses have long been a favorite of Hollywood's finest such as Ava Gardner, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn. During the 50's and 60's, this style was considered to be graceful and glamorous. It was also a cultural trend shift towards accepting anyone who wore glasses.
Cat eye glasses and face shapes: For the most part, a frame with rounded edges will work best for a square, or diamond shaped face. A round face would look better in a pair that has sharper edges, or a larger frame that curves upward a little. This rule of course is not hard and fast. The best way to find out is -go have a party trying on glasses, ha, try try try until you find the perfect pair.
How to Wear Cat Eye Sunglasses: Once you've hunted down the right pair for your face, you will find they will work with many different ouffits: from modern chic to totally vintage. If you are going for a vintage vibe, stick to frames from the 40's-60's. Even though the 70s' are making a major comeback in fashion, this era is best suited to round glasses.
Best Choices for Women Over 40: Of course us middle aged gals are always looking for ways to keep the fountain of youth flowing. Classy and chic eyewear can really take a lot of years off your face. A pair that is smaller in length with upturned corners will define your cheekbones and give the illusion of an instant facelift.
The possibilities for styling cat inspired sunnies are so much fun, and the selection of glasses on line are endless! The Glasses Shop, who offered to collaborate for this post, has several pairs to step up your glam. I chose this beautiful pair in rose gold, called "Darren." These shades were perfect to accessorize my bohemian themed dress,for a casual day on the waterfront. These would also look great with a dressy outfit:
I'm so happy the sunshiny days of summer are here again. I will be doing quite a bit of traveling the next month, and looking forward to wearing these shades with several of my outfits. How about you, are you loving cat eye classes, or do you prefer the more traditional styles?
