Cat-eye Sunglasses

Cat eye sunglasses are one of the most striking frame styles on offer. The original cat eye frame sunglasses design dates back to 1931, when they were called Harlequin frames, named after the Venetian Harlequin masks that inspired them. They really made their mark in the 1950s and 60s, and are still associated with the aesthetic of that time.

 

Originally created to offer women a truly feminine style, cat eye shades have made a big comeback recently. However, the beehive hairdo that they were often paired with has been left in the past! Although their angularity or curvature may differ slightly from model to model, the protruding upper edges of cat eye sunglasses are their trademark feature. A design like that is sure to be noticed!

 

Are cat eye sunglasses out of style?

Absolutely not. Cat eye sunglasses fell out of favour after the 1960s, but they are very much en vogue again in the present day. The influence of today’s trendsetters has seen them become a must-have piece in recent years. Modern interpretations of designer cat eye sunglasses from the likes of Bottega Veneta and Emporio Armani give the shape a more sleek, less winged look.

 

For fans of the original extreme upsweep, Gucci and Karl Lagerfeld have models more similar to vintage cat eye sunglasses. The SmartBuy Collection contains a variety of takes on the cat eye shape, with something to suit all tastes - and budgets. 

 

Are cat eye sunglasses good for round faces?

Thanks to the variety of cat eye sunglasses for women and men available, there is a pair to suit every face shape! For round faces, a slightly squared-off look would fit best, avoiding anything too angular. The right balance of curves and rounded corners will complement your features nicely. Any variation of cat eye lenses will look good on an oval face, the choice is yours! A narrow, angular form is the way to go for square faces, while heart-shaped faces can pull off the original better than anyone. 

 

At SmartBuyGlasses, we have thousands of options to choose from, so regardless of your personal preferences, you’ll find the style for you! Between our best price guarantee, free shipping and massive selection, there's no better place to buy cat eye sunglasses in Canada than SmartBuyGlasses.
