Summer 2010 is rapidly approaching, and with the summer sun comes the need for statement-making eyewear. And cat eye sunglasses are the shade style of the moment for models, celebs, and fashionistas everywhere.

The cat-eye sunglasses trend was, of course, sparked on the Spring/Summer 2010 runways back in September, when fashion houses such as Alexander Wang and Prada sent models down the runway rocking the retro frames. And the look has caught on fast - everyone from Lady Gaga to Scarlett Johansson has been spotted wearing a pair of cat-eye shades recently.

Personally, I'm in love with Alexander Wang's sunglasses above (look below for the link to a decent knockoff pair from ASOS) because they're so fresh and different, two qualities I look for in a pair of sunglasses. While I do own classic shades, in general, my mantra is: the more attention-grabbing the sunglasses, the better. Summer is the best time to have fun with your wardrobe - so why not rock one accessory that's a little crazy? It's always better than blending in.
