Finally, spring has sprung! Contrary to popular belief, a “summer body” is not a necessity for the upcoming seasons but rather a new pair of killer sunglasses. Recently, we have all been loving the micro eyewear trend, an obvious nod to 90s fashion, aligning with the retro revival that has recently hit the fashion world. The popularity of these tiny shades can be partly attributed to “Keeping up with the Kardashians” where Kim K revealed that her husband/stylist, Kanye West told her to ditch the oversized sunglasses trend. Ever since then, these frames have rose from their fashion graves!
Not only have the Kardashian-Jenners been loving this trend but also Rihanna and the Hadid sisters. Their instagrams have been flooded with an array of these amazing specs, ranging from cat eye to oval frames with an endless selection of different coloured lenses. However, this trend does not stop here where it has also been seen all over runway shows such as Alexander Wang at New York Fashion Week 2018 .
Despite, these tiny frames not being the most practical for UV protection, they are a great statement accessory that will up your fashion game! They are perfect to express your creativity, personal style and the easiest way to jazz up any outfit.
We undertook a cyber hunt to find the best pairs and here are some of our personal favourites…
