Timeless sunglasses from luxury 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 2022 fashion trend, especially the darker lenses like the cat eye Chanel sunglasses 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 waited until I could try them on in the stores. Although they do offer a virtual try on online now. In the mean time I’d bought cheap retro cat eye sunglasses last Summer 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 fell in love with both the large cat eye sunglasses and the small cat eye sunglasses and because they both create such different looks I kept both. Although it’s my Chanel oversized sunglasses that get the most wear.

Cat eye Chanel sunglasses 2022
Chanel sunglasses are my latest Chanel purchase. I love the oversized cat eye shape for giving as much sun protection as possible as it’s around my eyes that seem to be getting the fine lines the worst.
The whole new collection of Chanel sunglasses and glasses is fun and definitely full of statement styles. Whether they’re wired frames and dark tints or Chanel cat eye glasses. If I’m spending that much on sunnies I want them to be special and a little unique.
Now to try not to sit on them or scratch them! Chanel also has some beautiful styles with chains if you’re like me and tend to lose them!

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.
Small, medium and oversized large styles 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.

The Hottest Chanel Cat Eye Sunglasses
The cat eye sunglasses trend is one of those trends that comes and goes but never really disappears as it’s such a classic, retro glam style. I was worried the Chanel oversized sunglasses would be too big for me as I have a small face and some glasses just don’t look right on me but I’m really happy with this pair.
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.
