Timeless sunglasses from luxe to luxe for less to up your glam factor
Cat eye sunglasses have always been one of my favorite styles as they’re so old Hollywood, chic and ultra feminine. As well as a big 2021 fashion trend, especially the smaller frames as seen at Chanel. Sunglasses are a bit like shoes; you can never have too many and they change the entire look of an outfit. I had been looking at a pair of Chanel cat eye glasses but since we can’t try them on in the stores right now I resorted to cheap cat eye sunglasses from Amazon, I’ve never owned Amazon sunglasses but this way I could see what they looked like on without a mask covering my face.
I always like to have a few pairs of cheap sunnies that I don’t care if they get scratched and these cheap cat eye sunglasses are perfect for the beach or throwing in your bag on the go. When we can shop without masks again, I think a trip to Chanel’s definitely happening.
Amazon sunglasses | Cat eye sunglasses haul under $12
Small, medium and oversized cat eye sunglasses from Amazon for all face shapes. Sorry, there’s a bit of a blonde moment with the 2nd and 3rd pair of Amazon sunglasses. I leave in what should be outtakes on my YouTube videos to keep it real and so you don’t make the same mistake(s), even if it makes me look blonde. I promise I’m actually intelligent!

The Hottest Chanel Cat Eye Sunglasses
I’m hoping the cat eye sunglasses trend stays around for a while as I really want to get into a Chanel store without a mask on to see how they look on. I have a small face, so some glasses just don’t look right on me.
A little cat eye sunglasses fashion history
Cat eye sunglasses are also known as Manhattan, Harlequin and Upswept styles. The style was first seen on the eyewear scene in the 1930’s. Designed by Altina Schinasi, they were a chic change from the previous round designs and turned glasses into a fashion statement.
