Among the diversity of eyeglasses shapes, Cat-eye is rightfully considered to be the most feminine and elegant. So many outstanding women of the past and present were captured exactly in Cat-eye glasses, leaving us memories of their hottest images. Actually, glasses of this shape were designed by Altina Schinasi Miranda - a known American sculptor, shop windows dresser, designer, and inventor. Originally named Harlequin, they were created as a result of her inspiration by Venetian motives. She decided to run away from those ordinary and common women's eyeglasses which at that time were humdrum and so inappropriate for the romantic nature of women. And she succeeded in revealing the essence of a woman's spirit.
The cat-eye shape of glasses was made in the 1930s. Since then, the fashionable design does not stand still, but changes and improves every ten years. In the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s talented Audrey Hepburn wore Cat-eye glasses and made a breathtaking and timeless outfit with them. After that moment this eyewear became a trend and we saw it on different celebrities such as Brigitte Bardot, Charlotte Rampling, Anna Karina, Ingrid Bergman, and many others celebrities. Interestingly, the Cat-eye shape was inspired by the Browline shape and characterized by an upswept almond-shaped silhouette that resembles the feline look. This unique shape that repeats the outlines of a cat's eye is the outstanding feature of Cat-eye glasses.
The appearance of Harlequin, most known as Cat-eye glasses, turned faceless eyewear into a conspicuous fashion accessory that is still in vogue now. That was the beginning of a new era - the era of chic and fashionable eyeglasses. Firstly Cat-eye glasses were made to be worn with optical lenses, but as you can see, now sunglasses of this shape are immensely popular. For decades women showed off these flared glasses with coquettish pointy edges, exciting men's minds and hearts. Isn't this a reason for you to buy a pair of superb Cat-Eyes? Presently many variants of a fashionable Cat-eye frame are made for men as well. This fashionable eyewear is definitely created for the modish, confident, and contemporary male gender.
As we know, eyeglasses are a great solution to vision problems. They help us to improve our eyesight and also make reading newspapers, books, and magazines easier. As follows, it is important to choose a good pair of eyeglasses wisely. First of all, you should pay attention to the types of glasses – single-vision lenses or multifocal vision lenses. The first one will help you to see either close up or far away while multifocal vision lenses correct both near and distance vision. Secondly, make sure the eyeglasses offer a safe level of UV protection because sun rays and ultraviolet rays have a harmful effect on health and can even be really dangerous. It's better to choose glasses that block 99 to 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.
Another piece of advice applies to the frame, it should be lightweight, hypoallergenic, comfortable, and convenient while the eyepiece should be large enough to completely cover the eye. In addition, it should be long-lasting to not let you down under any unpredictable circumstances. Also frame material makes a big difference. Eyeglasses should be crafted from high-quality and top-rated materials such as hypoallergenic and lightweight plastic, strong and reliable titanium, environmentally-friendly acetate, and solid and durable metal. This eyewear should feel good on your face even if you don't take it off all day. Plus for eyeglasses, it is necessary to easily slip into a small purse or pocket because you always need to carry them with you.
