Sometimes it seems like our modern sensibilities get in the way of trying new retro-inspired looks and styles. A case in point: the cat eye frame. Admittedly, when the trend first re-emerged a couple of years ago, the shapes were a bit costume-y. Over the past few seasons, though, designers like Michael Kors and Tory Burch have taken the cat eye look from severe to very wearable for nearly every face shape. If you’re in the market for a new pair of shades this summer (and who isn’t?), make sure you check out styles like the ones featured below. If you’re like me, they may just become your new favorites.
