WHO: Classic Hollywood icons such as Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, the eyeliner trend that most of us still haven’t mastered and lovers of retro styling.

WHAT: The cat eye silhouette never really seems to go out of style but simply evolves to fit today’s fashion scene. For the past couple of years, the micro cat eye dominated fashion trends especially with regard to influencers. However, the trending cat eye silhouette right now is more of an ode to the traditional 1950s and 1960s frame that characterized old glamour.

WEAR: (Top to Bottom) Marchon’s Chloe style CE157s is the ultimate statement-making, flirty cat eye, perfect for the upcoming festival season. This 3-piece frame adds personality with its subtle chiseled finish around its rim and bold pink gradient lenses. The Moncler Lunettes ML0102 style from Marcolin showcases a timeless cat eye in a classic tortoise with cream-colored inserts on the temples. This model features an elevated styling of the iconic silhouette by coupling circular lenses within the cat eye shape. The PLD6071/s/x from Safilo’s Polaroid Eyewear collection takes the vintage cat eye silhouette and updates it for a sleek, modern look. This metal style features a bright red rim around its lenses with pops of red continued on its temple end pieces, creating an effortlessly cool appeal. The Spectaculars collection of vintage-inspired eyewear from ClearVision Optical takes the traditional cat eye silhouette and adds a touch of modern flair with its Betty model. This style reveals a classic, staple eyewear piece that’s perfect for everyday wear.

WHY: Whether they are optical or sun, a cat eye silhouette embodies a flirty, feminine take on style. These silhouettes exude glamour and sophistication, coupling a retro foundation with modern flair. These cat eye frames are the perfect way to turn heads with a simple accessory.
