Vintage ‘50s glasses were the best (video)

By Joanna Douglas, Shine staff

Cat-eye glasses are back, as are many other stylized spectacles, but the truth is, none of today's frames are as cool as those from the 1950s. We've come a long way fashion wise, but the everyday glasses of the past were perfection. The best part? Nearly everyone had fun and flattering frames back then, so you didn't stand out for wearing extreme shades the way you would now. Now we understand why vintage glasses can be so expensive-they really were superior, at least when it comes to accessorizing an outfit. See for yourself in this awesome video clip.
