Specs Appeal: Vintage Sunglasses

1950s cat eye glasses

These glasses above are awfully cute, but they sure weren’t made for fun in the sun.  I myself don’t own any truly vintage sunglasses because I’ve always been afraid that I’d break them. Instead, I’ve opted for sturdier, modern takes on vintage silhouettes, specifically the cat eye (via Tom Ford) and a circular 1930s-era look (via The Row) although both are a little bit oversized compared to their real vintage counterparts. I’ve put together a small collection of my favorite actual vintage sunglasses below. I’m really smitten with all of them for different reasons. Which is your favorite?
