This spring, take a blast to the past. Hard edged and geometric lines are a go-to shape for the punkster diva. Lavender lenses and colorful frames make their mark, but if you’d rather tune into your soft side (channeling Dorothy Dandridge), sleek cat eyes always say “meow”. Whether you journey to the ’80s or the distant glamour of the ’50s and 60s, one thing is for sure: the bigger, the bolder, the better.
