I never thought Madame Fashion would ever go for anything small but I guess she showed me. Oh, but she still fancies big sweaters and massive sweatshirts and maybe the occasional pair of baggy jeans… but according to designers’ collections for SS 2017, and to some very cool celebs there’s a new IT look in town involving sunglasses.
Oversized is so last Tuesday. Small sunglasses are IN.
(I am cringing right now. Slightly panicked too.)
But… I took a deep breath, rolled my sleeves and decided to plunge into research with an open mind. We can cope with small. God knows we’re striving for a XS in every goddamn piece of clothing we buy, so why not shades as well?
Cause they make us look ridiculous! (screaming voice)
Anyway. I am wrong. Let me tell you that one hour post-panic-small-glasses-attack I realized I was having the best morning ever. SMALL SUNGLASSES are the coolest shades in the world, they’re the 90s staple of Brenda Walsh, Donna, and Kelly. Oh. My. God. They’re Drew Barrymore’s incredibly cool secret weapon. They’re so 90210 back in the day, they’re Steven Tyler and Aerosmith, and Liv Tyler, and cool rockstars, and our teenage years.
Really now… what took 90s return cycle so long to just put a pin in small sunglasses and bring em back?
Well… probably cause they don’t do so much justice to ALL shape faces, BUT the right frame will do wonders regardless of size.
Basically all of 90s sunglasses styles are back in fashion and designers sent models down the runway in: round tiny frames, in pink, red or blue transparent shades, oval small shapes, and right after the shows some celebrities picked up on this very cool style and Instagram blew up.
Hello Selena Gomez. This girl really knows 90210 Beverly Hills 90s style. Those round shades, those red tiny ovals, the oversized clothing mixed with uber fitted and sexy pieces. It’s perfection.
And she still does oversized glasses too like wayfarers and cat eye. Selena Gomez sunglasses style is really on point.
Consistency is never friends with fashion or trends, so I wouldn’t throw my classic oversized shades away, by no means. They’re a staple and will always be a go-to-look.
If you’re one to spice it up with sunglasses and love to peak a few glaces over at celebs styles you will love this Celebrity Spotter hub over at SmartBuyGlasses.com. You click on the site and then pick a celeb whose style glasses you love and BAM! you can buy them. I LOVE their feature.
Don’t know about you, but Selena’s glasses style & the small sunnies all around this post triggered some major 90s nostalgia for me and I am kinda hooked on this new fashion revival.
So… 2017 will be the year I wear tiny sunglasses again. Like it was yesterday that I was 15 and listened to Aerosmith, watched Beverly Hills, and had a crush on Johnny Depp.
See? I told you it was a great morning.
