Cat eye glasses

Named after their resemblance to the shape of a cat's eye, cat eye glasses are probably the most popular style of vintage eyeglasses. Though cat eye glasses were around since the 1950's, they reached their peak popularity when Audrey Hepburn wore a pair of cat eye glasses in the 1961 film Breakfast at tiffany's. They then spiraled out of control, keeping fashion designers busy trying to figure out who could create the most random, creative design's, with pointy, swoopy wings, often adding rhinestone's and other jewels. Cat eye glasses became the fashion accessory of the next decade. Though they started falling out of favor in the early 1970's, cat eye glasses are still a favorite for many women around the world and are highly sought after. For the contemporary woman wishing to make a fashion statement and an entrance, cat eye glasses is a fashion accessory must have. The Vintage Optical Shop has 100's of different styles of authentic vintage cat eye glasses to choose from. We are constantly growing our collection, always looking for more unique cat eye glasses for our customer's.
