Cat-eye sunglasses never really go out of style—the vintage-inspired eyewear design always somehow manages to feel equal parts retro and contemporary. And while they may feel like quite the statement accessory, they’re (somewhat surprisingly) both remarkably stylish and universally-flattering on most facial shapes. The ubiquitous sunglasses shape has definitely had many moments in both fashion and film, from street style trends to classic film noir flicks, and they tend to resurface with vengeance pretty much every other season.
There are plenty of different sub-shapes to choose from (rectangular, round, and even hexagonal styles are all in abundance) when it comes to the classic cat-eye silhouette, from more narrow face-framing pairs to oversized styles with funky, eye-catching colorways. If you’re looking for an affordable and versatile pair to test out the enduring “trend” (and remember, these sunglasses are literally *always* on-trend) for yourself, we’ve highlighted a few chic styles to add to your cart ASAP.
