Cat Eye Glasses
The beaming rays of the sun are back and that means protecting our eyes is a must so why not do it with style? One of the hottest new looks this season when it comes to sunglasses are the cat eye glasses. This ‘50s eyewear phenomenon has made its comeback on the spring 2011 runways with a taste of a modern twist from extreme retro frames to subtle cat eye shapes from designers including Giles Deacon, Jeremy Scott, Paul Smith, Tommy Hilfiger and Twenty9Twelve.
Now let’s help you narrow down your choices. For those who have gone shopping for sunglasses, you already know what will work and what won’t work on your face shape. How do these rules apply for cat eye glasses? Generally, a cat eye frame with rounded-out edges will work wonders for a square or diamond-shaped face. A round face will work well with sharper edges or large frames that curve upwards. But before you start writing down these rules, the best option is to try them on and see what works best for your face shape and personal preference. For those looking to make a strong statement, you can try a pair of cat-eye or harlequin glasses with diamond-shaped lenses that point sharply out. If you want to tone it down a bit, you can also find a more subtle pair with a slight flare at the edges.
Once you get your pair of cat eye glasses, its time to think about how to match it with your wardrobe. These fabulous glasses will work well with all varieties of outfits from the more modern to more vintage looks.
