Up until very recently, in the ever changing world of fashion, “the bigger the better” was the unspoken sunglasses rule. Yet, as the saying goes, “new year, new life”. Tiny sunglasses are hip in 2018.
Apparently, it all started with Kanye West. The American rapper and producer has been seen donning tiny sunglasses more often than not. Soon, wife Kim Kardashian followed suit, which is the same to say tiny sunglasses went mainstream and are now the official sunglasses trend for 2018.
Tiny Sunglasses were very popular in the nineties. Just think the Wachowski sisters cult trilogy debut The Matrix (1999), a young Justin Timberlake or the British rock band Oasis. From Neo to Noel, nineties bad boys all donned tiny sunglasses with flimsy metal frames, and lenses barely covering the eyes.
But since appearing on the Kardashian’s TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and thus becoming mainstream, more and more A listers have been seen sporting tiny sunglasses – from West and Kim to Rihanna or Selena Gomez, just to name some of the most influential celebs.
If you wish to hop on the tiny sunglasses bandwagon this summer, that doesn’t necessarily mean you will need to ditch your pair of aviators or wayfarer sunglasses. Quite the contrary, no matter what tricky trend will follow, Aviator and Wayfarer sunglasses will always remain must have classics.
So, stick to your classics and yet, why not, buy a new pair of tiny sunglasses for the summer.
