Frequently Asked Questions

Who looks good in designer cat eye sunglasses?

These large frame sunglasses are one style that will flatter most face shapes. The signature “cat eye” corners compliment the soft features of round faces, balance the length of oval face shapes, and offer a complementary sharp look to square face shapes. Since cat eye frames can vary greatly with their shape and wear they sit on your face, it’s always a good idea to virtually try them on first!

Why are they called cat eye sunglasses?

Inspired by Venetian Harlequin masks, cat eye sunglasses were previously called Harlequin glasses after their namesake! So where does the term “cat eye” come from? Cat eye simply refers to the shape of the frames: they’re defined by the frame's flicked upper curve–much like a cat's eyes. One thing that never changed about these glasses is their ability to hide your identity, just like a Harlequin mask!

Are designer cat eye sunglasses timeless?

Cat eye sunglasses are a certified classic style. The vintage appeal transcends decades and styles. Though the general silhouette remains, they’ve been revamped and updated over the years to reflect current trends and styles. That’s why you’ll always find many different cat eye sizes and designs, from elegant and graceful to bold and daring!
