Retro Fashion 101
Everywhere you look, though, you’re guaranteed to find thicker rimmed eyeglasses, more oversized frames, and the classic tortoiseshell coloring. Most designers make these styles their own by reinterpreting colors and details, but the same classic look lasts.
Vintage Eyeglasses for Women
For women, the cat-eye eyeglasses are coming back something fierce. Easily found in both prescription eyeglasses and trendy sunglasses, the cat eye is feminine and stylish. If true vintage cat-eye eyeglasses aren’t really your taste, you can easily remain stylish in a pair of frames that are inspired by the cat-eye look.
Retro Eyeglasses for Men
