Cat Eye eyewear imparts a sophisticated, elegant, slightly exotic look to the wearer. Most frames feature oval lenses with the extended portion of the eye rim drawn out into an upward and outward point.
Oftentimes, the “extra” eye rim at the outer corners are embellished with exotic details. Rhinestone, metal, or colored plastic temple enhancements creating a sense of opulence while sculptural effects, such as raised designs, scalloped edges, and fancy bridges, add uniqueness to these frames.
Among the most striking decorative innovations on cat eye frames are the “brows,” which usually incorporate different sculptural, applique, and ornamental effects on the top edges of cat-eye rims.
