Emma Roberts Literally Wears These Retro Sunglasses With EVERYTHING


The way Emma Roberts can put together a vintage outfit so seemingly effortlessly is enough to make one wonder whether she comes from a bygone decade. The girl lives in a pair of Gatsby-era Mary Janes and has a bottomless supply of thrifted tees. Retro eyewear is also key. Emma Roberts never goes out without her cat-eye sunglasses.

The actor has a knack for giving even next-season pieces old-school flair, thanks to a few nostalgic accessories she keeps in constant rotation. Her wardrobe must be a treasure trove of throwback trends. Everything she wears looks old, even if it isn't.

Her trick is to wear cat-eye sunnies with literally everything — workout clothes, dresses with combat boots, graphic t-shirts and jeans, and every outfit in between. No need to have a closet full of consignment finds when you have a collection of retro shades like Roberts'.

The shades she's been living in lately are from Garrett Leight's collaboration with Clare V. They feature brown lenses, a tortoiseshell acetate frame that goes with anything, and that turned-up-at-the-edges shape that Audrey Hepburn made famous in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

In fact, Roberts has said in the past that Hepburn is her ultimate fashion muse (and it's safe to assume the late icon would approve).


The American Horror Story actor has been loyal to Garrett Leight x Clare V. sunnies for years. She also has a pair with yellow frames (so very '60s) and another in red. When she isn't wearing her favorite tortoiseshell ones, which is most of the time, you'll probably find her in a royal-blue version by Rag & Bone or a pair of real vintage shades by Pifebo.

She rarely strays from her go-to cat-eye silhouette, though. Get yourself a pair of these timeless sunglasses and you'll be looking like you stepped out of the '60s, too. Roberts' and similar options, ahead.
