The cat-eye sunglasses you need for summer and beyond

There are certain sunglasses shapes and styles that will never not be a trend, and at the very top of that list—even above aviators, in our humble opinion—are cat-eye sunglasses. The elegant style has a retro vibe, for sure, but thanks to a wide variety of materials, colors, and sizes, cat-eye sunglasses are constantly evolving and adapting to the current day without ever giving off a try-hard, overly trendy feel.

From classic black or tortoiseshell, to neon green and bright pink, there exists a pair of cat-eye sunglasses in every color on the spectrum—meaning you’re sure to find one that speaks to you. Not sure about the exaggerated cat-eye shape? Opt for a rounder, larger pair that flare out at the sides ever-so-slightly.

Browse our favorite cat-eye sunglasses below, from super affordable (starting at $7.50!) to ultra-luxe (ahem, Gucci and Prada). Happy shopping!
