Summer Must Haves for 2019 | Carmen Candela

Cat Eye Glasses

Cat-eye glasses are named after the shape of the eyewear frames. The design is closely related to the 50’s brow line style often worn by Malcolm X or the characters in Mad Men. However, the Cat-eye frames are slightly different by having an upward angle at the outer edges near to where the arms connect to the front frame. Originally popular in the ’50s and ’60s and made famous by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe. Today the cat eye glasses are making a comeback and have become a popular frame for sunglasses.

Our Ultracool vintage cat eye sunglasses are a tribute to those ladies who created the classic look. They come available in a variety of colors. Unlike the classics we have modernized the lenses with UV400 protection and made the frames themselves from strong polycarbonate, making these cat-eye frames a step up from those in the past. Look good and protect your eyes at the same time!
