Round Shape

Round eyeglasses and sunglasses were all over the Spring 2013 runway. Big, and even bigger, round frames have been spotted at numerous fashion shows in a variety of different color combinations with lighter and darker lenses. The round shape can be extremely flattering on rectangle face shapes in eyeglasses or sunglasses, but harder to pull off on more rounded face shapes.  Try different sizes and colors to choose the ones that will flatter you!

Cat-Eye Shape

Since the 1950’s cat-eye sunglasses have gone in and out in the fashion industry.  These feline-inspired frames were pioneered by Hollywood legends like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly.  Cat-eye is a continuing trend we’ve seen in previous seasons, and we are not over the retro look quite yet!  More and more designers are picking up on the trend with a variety of different styled eyeglasses and sunglasses.  Add some retro glamour to your look with a simple pair of cat-eye eyewear.  They’re an instant style boost!
