Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Trend: Cat Eye Glasses
One of the quirkier and more obscure fall/winter trends to emerge on the AW2010 runways were cat eye glasses. The cat-eye style is a throw back to the 50s and 60s and was typically paired on the runways with a feminine skirt as seen above at Prada, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Nina Ricci). When choosing a pair of glasses or sunglasses you have to be mindful that the shape suits your face, so this style may not be for everyone. Typically, you should chose a pair that is the opposite of your face shape, so square or rectangular glasses look good on someone with a round face and vice versa. Cat-eye glasses look best on someone with a narrow forehead and a larger jawline because they tend to emphasize and enlarge the upper part of your face.
