Meowwww! Cat Eye Frames
This season, when it comes to your shady-lady choice of specs – the shape du jour is the cat-eye!
A craze that is fiercely reminiscent of the 1950/60s, this feline frame rebirth is one that is being picked up and reinterpreted by the likes of Alexander Wang through to Miuccia Prada!
Undoubtedly the cats milk of sunglasses this S/S’12 – and trust me, I’m not the only one who thinks so!
Tastemakers by the likes of Diane Kruger, Jessica Alba and of course Mary-Kate Olsen have been style-spotted wearing these lavish sunglasses, each also adapting the frame to suit their own personal style.
And that’s perhaps exactly why this frame is such a popular trend this season – not only because so many celebs are already all over this trend, but because the cat-eye craze is simply so easy to wear! It suits a wide array of face shapes and style personalities.
There are really two distinct styles that fall under the cat-eye umbrella: the more traditional ’50s swoop and a wider, softer ’80s iteration.
Not to mention, about a zillion variations on these general categories, ranging from uber-dramatic to mega-mainstream, meaning you’re sure to find a shape that flatters your face and your personal taste.
When looking for a shape that suits you, do keep in mind that for a square or diamond shaped face, a rounded-out, cat-eye edge will work wonders.
While a square face looks fantastic in lines and edges that are sharper and which curve upwards slightly, mimicking the structural character of the square face.
An oval face is so wonderfully & perfectly balanced so there would be no troubles there picking up a cat eye style and making it work!
Being very much the must have accessory of the season, even if your face doesn’t fall into the categories above, try, try and try on again every pair you can get your hands on until you find the perfect cat-eye frames!
Ohhh and the BEST selling point for these frames – cat eye frames always emphasize the wearers cheekbones, giving the wearer a classically fantastic face shape!
