It’s sunglasses season, so get some shade with the right pair of sunnies for summer. If you’re thinking about recycling your favourites from last year, we’d say, put them back in the case this instant!
Remember Rihanna’s futuristic frames for Dior last year? How sleek and tiny they were?
Well, we believe THAT was the beginning of the trend which seems to be blowing up in all of the well-dressed circles this year.
The cool girls disapprove of aviators, butterfly sunnies, oversized square, and hexagonal frames, and yes, cat-eye shades too.
Do it Matrix style (yes, the movie), and opt for teeny-tiny frames—think Steven Tyler, and Milla Jovovich from the 90s, and then think Rihanna at Cannes, Kylie at Coachella, and Bella and Gigi at Fashion Week in 2017.
And, if you think this is just a Hollywood or model obsession, think again. Even the fashion bloggers community has given the trend a nod with Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine, Chiara Ferragni, Racquel Natasha, Nadia FairFax, and Margaret Zhang taking to their Instagrams in barely there, teeny tiny sunglasses.
Wired, rimless, gradient, mirrored square, hexagonal, round, cat eye… the shape is up to you, a personal choice that one must exercise in order to pick the right pair of tiny sunglasses that can somewhat balance out your face. As expected, they’re not forgiving, nor are they for the faint-hearted. This is a trend best-suited for those with smaller faces or a strong and angular jawline.
