Photos of Ladies Wearing Cat-Eye Glasses in the 1950s and ’60s

First created in the 1930s, cat-eye glasses are one style that has stood the test of time. Nearly a century old, the cat-eye has managed to create its own distinct look each decade.

The frame later became a huge trend for sunglasses in the 1960s when Audrey Hepburn famously wore them in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Since then, we’ve seen the cat-eye on everyone from Barbie, to Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and today’s top fashion influencers.

Cat eye glasses were mainly popular in the 1950s and 1960s among women and are often associated with the Beehive hairstyle and other looks of the period.
