This small, upward-oval shape has been making a splash in recent months. This is the one frame you need to consider for summer. Because of its unique shape, it's flattering on many face types. Cat-eyes are characterized by an upward lens shape at the outer edges where the frame and eyeglass legs meet.

Insta famous models and celebs have already started sporting this shape and have found a myriad of outfits to pair it with. The shades are available in many colors and finishes, helping add character to otherwise mild outfits.

Find a frame color that bodes well with your skin tone and pick a sturdy pair that you know you can keep all summer long. Neutral colors are always a good bet—consider white, black and cream.

Although a few expensive designers have put out their version of the shape, we are all for affordable versions of the style. The pair below will set you back less than $10 and is also available in many color combos.
