Modern Cat Eye Glasses

Cat eye glasses are not about the shape but about the attitude. The classic cat eyed glasses have pointy, up-lifted eye shapes that look fun and nerdtastic at the same time.

These pointy style eyeglass frames became popular in the 1950's because it was believed by those in the fashion industry at the time that this shape tended to give the wearer a virtual face-lift. I am not exactly sure what "gay colors" were at the time, but this black and white Harlequin ad really sells it. I like how she is pointing at the points...


Popular film stars like Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall made them a go-to shape for women all over the world. Cat eye glasses could be sexy, elegant, or studious depending I think, on whether or not there was a eyeglass chain attached to them.
