Stylish Cat-Eye Sunglasses
Cat-eye frames are an adjusted and stylized version of round frames which became incredibly popular during the 1950s. This style of glasses features a stylized frame shape with hinges located on the outer upper edge rather than the side. These design features make cat-eye frames rest differently on the face than standard rounded frames with hinges on the side. Cat-eye sunglasses achieve what is called pantoscopic tilt, meaning that they sit at an angle with the lower part of the frames and lenses remaining close to a wearer's cheek. This means that the wearer can easily look at things that are very close up or far away without needing to adjust their sunglasses.

We also stock cat-eye sunglasses with patterned or brightly-colored frames and lightly tinted colorful lenses. No matter what types of vintage cat-eye sunglasses you want to sell, we make it easy for you to provide customers with a stylish selection of accessories.
Aviator-style sunglasses were originally developed in 1936 to be worn by pilots. These glasses were designed to prevent as much direct light from entering the eye from any angle as possible and to offer protection against both light and temperature while in the air. This style of sunglasses replaced flight goggles, and their distinctive style led to aviators becoming an immensely popular style after they became available to the general public during the 1940s. Aviators are distinguished by slightly convex lenses that are usually dark and may also be reflective. Aviator frames were traditionally made out of metal and can be found with double or triple bridges and other stylistic details.
Aviator sunglasses have been popular since the middle of the twentieth-century, as they transitioned from military equipment to civilian accessories. This style of sunglasses goes far beyond dressing up in period costumes, as they could be used for any costume from the 1950s through the 1980s and beyond. Aviator-style glasses remain fashionable to this day, and are now available with a variety of modified styling including rimless designs and lenses that are colored, faded, tinted, polarized, or even clear. The fashionable statement made by this frame style goes far beyond its practical origins. As this style of glasses flatters many face shapes, you may want to order a few styles and colors with different colors of lenses. These glasses are likely to be top sellers, so you might want to stock up on this timeless style.
Standard square-shaped frames are traditional, but you can also find exaggerated statement frames in this shape. Square sunglasses have been popular since the mid-twentieth century, but bold square frames became fashionable during the 1960s. You can order standard square frames made out of metal or plastic or choose tortoise-shell, animal-print, or brightly-colored frames with tinted, colored, faded, or polarized lenses. You can also find square-shaped glasses wholesale with clear lenses for a retro look.
