Cat Eye Sunglasses are one summer accessory that should be on everyone’s “Must Have” list. The feline inspired style made it’s debut in the 1950’s and stuck around for the 60’s. Skipping over the free love era (1970’s) they made their way back onto the fashion scene just in time for the rocking 80’s. Along with everything else from the funky era, Cat Eyes are back!
