If you’re a real retro fan, you’ll know that cat eye is the quintessential shape to transport your look back to a golden age. Think Hollywood Glam, think bombshell, think pin up.

Metal eyeglasses

There’s no school like the old school. Metal eyeglasses throwback to multiple decades, and are bang on trend with 90s revival. Go for round frames if you’re want to the ultimate 90s look, or something more angular if you’re feeling the hipster hype. The simplicity of metal frames means they’re a great go-to with any outfit or keep as your trusty handbag essential.

Browline eyeglasses

The infamous browline rose to fame in the 50s and 60s and was sported by everyone from, Malcolm X to Colonel Sanders. With a thicker upper portion of the frame, this style gets its name from the way the eyebrow lines the eye. Annabel in Red gives a pop of color to this classic Browline look.

If you want to try something vintage inspired with a modern twist, you should definitely try our new style, Festival! It’s the perfect marriage of old and new, and will really make a statement when you up your eyewear game.
