Cat Eye

I desperately need new sunglasses. I also hate actually shopping for them because 90% of what's out there makes me look ridiculous. I avoided the last couple of trends of huge aviators and even bigger vintage-style shades, but it's time to replace at least one of the pairs I'm wearing regularly.

The cat eye frame is back, and while I'm pretty sure I shouldn't even attempt this look, I love the idea of it. Here's Taylor Tomasi, style and accessories director for Marie-Claire magazine. She was photographed in Paris during Fashion Week wearing these Norma Kamali sunglasses.

  1. I'm so glad the Cat glasses are back in! I've always loved this style and it looks really good on me.

  3. I think the cat eye glasses would look good on almost anyone. I personally love the style and still have 50s vintage ones as well as a couple pair from the 80s. I'm not a big fan of the aviator style on women. IMHO it is too masculine a look to pull off without seeming like one is trying too hard.
