I may not be as much a sunglasses aficionado as resident 303 Editor-in-Chief, Laura Standley, but I do appreciate a good pair of shades. And, Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, consistently and effortlessly models sunglasses day and night. So, between Laura and Anna, I’ve come to realize that sunglasses are a necessary final touch.

This season, sunglasses are infused with a touch of the 50’s. Taking the cat eye look to great lengths, designers are getting to the point with exaggerated shade shapes. While most versions are plastic – either tortoise or black in color – many feature metal details. Gucci and Dsquared offer cat-tastic plastic and metal combos.

Also intigrating plastic and metal, Elizabeth and James’ Fairfax sunglasses are a celeb fave. Jenna Dewan, Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson have all been spotted in the shades.

Alexander McQueen’s lime green and purple whiskered glasses offer a playful take on the dramatic look.

These feline-inspired sunglasses will have you saying meoooww all summer long!
