Cat eye sunglasses are all the talk. The funkier, the better!

When I see cat eye glasses I always think about Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn wore those cool cat eye prescription glasses in How to Marry a Millionaire. Nowadays, cat eye design glasses are all the rage when it comes to fun in the sun.

Nordstrom has a wonderful selection of cat eye sunglasses, so it is a great one-stop shop! Designers are inventing creative and fun designs and the sky seems to be the limit. There are all kinds of variations stemming from the famous cat eye look that can either turn you off or inspire you. Hopefully, the products I’m featuring will make you want to dive into the past and soak up the sun with some old school glamour.

My first feature is for all the bold divas out there. It’s a fun twist on the aviator and cat eye design. The cool lens gives off a shiny reflection. These are not for everyone, but will make a great accessory for those that are willing to flaunt them with confidence and have an overall fun wardrobe or style to compliment this pair.

Next up is one of my favorite sunglasses and something I can’t wait to purchase. The frames on these stunners are phenomenal! The colors are electrifying! This whole thing is reflective from the frame to the lens. It doesn’t take a diva to wear these, just the desire to take part in this historically Hollywood style.
