The cat-eye is an inherently fashion frame. It always has been and it always will be, probably because it's one of the easiest ways to look ahead of the curve without having to put in too much effort. No, seriously, wear whatever you want. I'm not just being egregious by saying you could probably even wear Crocs (black Crocs, let's not get too crazy) and with the right cat-eye, your Crocs might just look cool. That, my friends, is the power of a good pair of sunglasses.
For summer '16, the on-trend cat-eye is narrower than usual. The smaller, sometimes more angular shape feels a bit Star Trek, making the traditionally retro eyewear more edgy — but still digestible enough to wear on the reg. And if you're wondering just how to do that, the pieces ahead — from simpler all-black shades to louder, more risk-worthy frames —will help you rock the shape like it ain't no thing.
