editor's pick: cat people

let's all agree that cat eyes are the best sunglasses.

Settling on one pair of sunglasses to wear every day is hard--almost impossible, even--but I'm going to make the case that if you could only wear one pair of sunglasses from here to eternity, it should be a pair of cat eyes. 

My argument is simple. Firstly, they are flattering on every face shape. Secondly, they make you look like a retro beautiful Catwoman, and, really, who doesn't want that? And thirdly, cat eye sunglasses are the eyewear of choice for the four most stylish women of all time: Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Jean Seberg, and Marilyn Monroe. Convinced yet? 

Maybe this pair from Le Specs will do the trick. At just $59, they won't put a dent in your bank account and have a one year warranty so if you accidentally drop them off the side of your yacht, you're covered.
