Conquering Cateye Sunglasses: How to Perfect the Summer Trend

Can’t go past the classics? Take some inspiration from mid century glamour and update your style with our seriously stylin’ cat eye sunglasses.

A super popular shape, cat eye sunnies are the perfect option if you’re looking for eyewear that’s feminine, flattering and effortless cool. Get your everyday shades sorted with classic black or tortoiseshell sunnies, go glam with luxe metallic finishes and mirrored lenses, or add some fun to your look with seasonal coloured frames and lens.
Giving you the choice of over-sized frames, as well as perfectly proportioned styles, there’s a pair of sleek cat eye sunglasses out there to suit almost every trademark style!

Which face shapes can rock cat eye sunnies?
While some people can pull off just about any look, cat eye sunnies often best suit people with an oval face shape (think Beyonce, Kim Kardashian-West and Jennifer Lawrence) or a square face shape (like Rihanna or Lady Gaga).
For gals with an oval face shape, you can pull off just about any style, so go crazy and try out some of the different colours and shape variations on offer. Try not to go too wild with the frame shape, as your stunning features might be overshadowed by OTT frames.
If you have a square face shape, you’re also in luck. The right pair of cat eye sunglasses can give your face a little more balance, and with a style with rounded edges, you can also create the illusion of a softer jawline. Go for narrower rims if you can, as they can help to lengthen and soften your features.
How can you pull off a pair of cat eye sunnies?
Available in a heap of different colours and shape variations, there’s a pair of cat eye sunglasses to suit almost every gal. From seriously retro styles to sleek AF modern finishes, it’s easy to pair your outfit with a pair of these super stylish shades. Go for on-trend metallics and fresh seasonal colours if you’re wanting to step up your style game, or reach for timeless black or tortoiseshell sunnies if you’re after something low-key that you can wear everyday.
Take the lead from Old Hollywood glam with classic rounded shapes, or make a statement with angular frames, exaggerated lenses and the latest seasonal colours and prints.
