full-1-2-26-2017Judging from the plethora of eye-catching retro-inspired eyewear that’s been getting face time – from the ready to-wear runways of NYFW to the sprawling city streets of Los Angeles – it’s clear that sunglasses have stayed within a chic Joan Crawford meets Marilyn Monroe, style aesthetic.

It’s this shift which reflects the current look-at-me trends – retro, vintage-inspired frames, chunky cat eyed tortoise shells and geometric shapes which attract instead of deflecting ones’ attention. There is a sense of dominance that speaks when showcasing such a style that allows you to not compromise your current appearance and authentic-self. There are a number of elements to choose when garnishing a retro look from a cat eye lens or oversized frames, which display an articulate presence of which attracts a wandering-eye despite the era.

A preferred choice (for me) has often started with the timeless 1950’s cat eye. They deliver a certain personality to the individual wearer- a dose of the NEW LOOK you could say – for a new persona. These elegant gold accented cat-eye sunglasses by Retro Sunnies exude such a profound appearance of glamour while offering the protection against UV4000. The gold hue from these “Daisy” shades can easily brighten up one’s face while completing an ensemble of authentic daywear.
