Cat eye sunglasses have always been a staple sunglass style because of their universally flattering shape. Whether they’re oversized, chunky frames or tiny frames that barely cover your eyes, cat eye sunglasses are characterized by their winged perimeter.

Even if you’re not a fan of the tiny cat eye sunglasses celebrities like Rihanna, Beyonce, and Kendall Jenner have been sporting for the past few summers, there are still a vast range of cat eyes you can choose from. Cat eye sunglasses were popularized by silver screen actresses in the 1950s, but don’t think retro shades are your only option. Whether you prefer rimless, neon, translucent, or sporty sunglasses, you’ll be sure to find a pair of cat eyes that will become your beach-going fave!
