  • Cat eye sunglasses to see you through summer in style

    Cat eye sunglasses are a spring/summer style essential and the easiest accessory update to your current wardrobe.

    The face-flattering design is undoubtedly chic and easy to wear, whatever your face shape.

    There are no rules when it comes to colours and patterns. Plus, they are insanely fun to wear. What’s not to love?

    One of the many reasons to reconsider cat eye sunglasses is the sheer power to transform the simplest of looks in an instant (a real plus when splashing out on a new pair of sunnies).

    They really aren’t dated and limited to cute retro styles either. Bold oversized designs and cool perspex frames, there are an amazing variety on the high street to high end and really give your outfit that great finishing touch.

    Tortoiseshell will work perfectly with your off-duty denim and a bold red lip. Pretty pastels should be worn with crisp whites and smart tailoring for the office. Cool girls will want to snap up some oversized black shades for festival season. And those looking for something a little more directional should experiment with two-tone designs and standout shades.

    High street heroes ASOS and H&M have more than catered to our love of feline sunnies. Karen Walker has your cool classics covered, and for head turning, serious power players, it has to be Miu Miu and Fendi.

    To finish off your stylish look, wear your hair loosely tied to showcase your new statement cat eye sunglasses. And for maximum impact, offset your look with a matchy-matchy mani pedi for the ultimate glamorous look.
