Tis the season for new shades!
As the temperatures heat up, cat eye shades are the sunnies to try! The classic 50's staple has been revamped.

With designers playing around with the (old) but new trend, this summer cat eye sunglasses are to go to shades. Designers like Alexander Wang and Prada were a few to jump on the bandwagon, using bold statement colors along with oversized, futuristic shapes.

The oversized version on this classic shade, gives any fashionista the retro chic look for summer. For a bold look, try a pair in statement colors, like gold, pink, or green. Tortoise is another great color to choose.

Cat eye sunnies are flattering to most. The upswept sides emphasize cheekbones and add definition to your face but make sure you try them on before you buy. You don't want to get lost behind them or have an unflattering fit.

Here are some tips to find the right pair of cat eye sunnies for you.

1. Determine your face shape- is it oval, square, diamond, heart shaped, round, or rectangular?
2. Consider you features- if you have a small face with tiny features, it will be harder to pull off big, bulky sunglasses.
3. Frames should follow your eyebrows
4. Cat eyes are more geometric so they are better suited for angular faces, but don't get discouraged, there is a right pair for everyone, just keep trying!

Remember, Fashion is Fun. It is uniquely you!
