Push your furry slides aside for this summer’s next feline delight: cat eye sunglasses. The style has been flattering the cheekbones of many a celeb recently, from the classic black frames Emily Ratajkowski wore to Fashion Week, to the cherry red pair that gave Gigi Hadid a very Nouvelle Vague moment in Manhattan recently. 
 
Even if you’ve never worn a pair, you can’t deny the cat eye’s staying power through decades of eyewear trends – and when it comes to summer sunnies, the style is simply bar-none at creating a coquettishly cool vibe. Think Grace Kelly in 1955’s To Catch a Thiefor Audrey Hepburn in like, everything. It’s no wonder the retro style came out in full-force during Cannes on ladies like Kendall Jenner and Elisabeth Moss. It’s the Hollywood Golden Age accessory that refuses to step away from the spotlight. 
 
Go for a vintage-inspired cat eye frame with a thick, lacquered finish – maybe even some corner inlays of stars and swirls – and while you’re at it, make Liz Taylor proud by covering as much of your human surface area as possible with gems by investing in some jewel-encrusted sunnies. Think Miu Miu’s tortoise shell shades with cognac crystals.
 
Finally, for those of you gravitating more towards the space-age and less towards the sock hop, there’s always the option of a severe, futuristic cat eye frame from brands like Andy Wolf, (responsible for that Rihanna Cannes moment) and Kendall + Kylie.
