Today, women's cat eye sunglasses are just as popular as they were back in the 50s and 60s. Cat eye glasses came about as prescription glasses in the 50s, and were the popular choice for ladies – flip through any high school yearbook from the 50s and you'll see just how popular. They transitioned into cat eye sunglasses by the 60s, made even more fashionable when iconic actresses like Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren sported them around. Our vintage style glasses in cat eye designs offer the same drama, mystery and chic style of original cat eye glasses, and now you'll find the popular eyeglass frames in different colors, featuring accents like crystals and in chic patterns such as tortoise shell sunglasses.

Look for modern men's vintage sunglasses styles made popular by actors and musicians in the 50s and 60s. Shades like black frame glasses in wayfarer and oversized styles at Cohen's Fashion Optical are must-have retro style glasses for trendy guys today. Oversized sunglasses reminiscent of Buddy Holly's black frame glasses offer modern men that same geek-chic look that brought Holly to fame back in the 50s. In fact, those heavy black frame glasses weren't chosen by Holly himself, but by his optometrist who wanted to boost the singer's image – it worked, and retro style glasses in oversized designs still enhance the look of men today.

Today's interpretation of retro sunglasses often include wayfarers and Clubmaster styles – looks that suit both men and women. Popular as tortoise shell glasses or solid color glasses, these vintage sunglasses styles resurfaced in the 90s and are back today, offering the same iconic styles they offered in the past. Retro eyewear like Clubmaster-style glasses with thick browline frames that transition into thin metal lower frames bring about images of legends like Malcolm X. And oversized sunglasses in wayfarer designs are reminiscent of the style Audrey Hepburn wore in her famous role as Holly Golightly in "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
