Chokers are back. Canadian tuxedos are everywhere. And oversized men’s suiting has taken over the women’s runway. The ’90s are back, and now we’ve got the teeny-tiny sunglasses to prove it.
The Olsen era of hiding behind your giant, face-obscuring sunglasses are behind us (for now), and nostalgic small frames are making a big statement.
It all started in the summer of 2017, when trendsetting designer Demna Gvaslia showcased his tiny spectacles on the Balenciaga runway. It didn’t take long for the it kids of Instagram to catch on: Bella Hadid became notorious for her microscopic round frames, and Kendall Jenner rocked her matrix-inspired cat eyes, all while bloggers snapped selfies in their small Le Specs shades.
The design goddesses had spoken–the cool girls were going small.
Worn on the tip of the nose, we’ll admit these sunglasses don’t exactly provide optimal UV protection. If anything, they’re an accessory for your face. We love it with an oversized hoodie and a pair of gold hoops. Or, with a sleek black blazer and your favorite pair of jeans.
No matter what shape, size, or color you get, this tiny trend adds major style points to any outfit, and is the perfect detail for a ‘gram selfie.
