Cat-eye sunglasses are the frame of the moment, and they're as populist as they come: There isn't a face shape these shades won't complement. Both retro and ultrafeminine, they pair well with a beehive-inspired bun − or, for an edgier effect, with a leather jacket, a nod to Eartha Kitt's 1960s Catwoman. And they'll look equally as fetching with next to nothing on the beach in a month or two.
