It’s a brand new season and perfectly pointed sunglasses are making a push for new shape of the year. Don’t ditch your aviators or oust your oversized pairs, but make room on your accessories shelf for this re-emerging sexy throwback to glamour-filled style. At every price point and just about every color—the tipped up corners perk up any look in a cinch and kick your style up a notch or three. When worn with just about anything, these flares with flair are the go-to accessory to move your wardrobe into 2011.

Bare Necessity Accessory. With $5.00 versions with sass at Charlotte Russe at Inland Center, there is no excuse to be late to invest in this “I’ve-arrived” style staple. Get to the point and try on a pair with a little extra titillating tilt.

Purr-fection. Pick your cat eyes carefully—choose the ones that suit you to a T. Ultra girly? Get your floral fix with a pretty printed pair. Love clean lines? Stand out in white shades. Have a little edge to you? Snatch up a pair with extroverted detail, like these chain laden tortoise shell ones from Kohl’s at Stonewood Center ($24).

In a round about way. Don’t beat around the bush—there is a shape out there for every face. If being pointed turns you off, get right round baby, right round with this pair of subtly cat-ish shades from Banana Republic at Los Cerritos Center ($98).
