THE TINY SUNGLASSES PHENOMENON

Small Sunglasses

Some trends I jump right in right on & some I’m about a thousand years late on, there is no in between. I've admired 90s style sunglasses from afar for a bit, their small round-ish frames starkly contrasting the bug eyed Olsen twin shades of recent years. When you're not used to something, sometimes it takes you awhile to warm up to it, as was the case with me & the tiny sunnies, perhaps the reasoning behind why it's taken me so long to hop on the train. 



Though some might consider my face the size of a tween's, big sunglasses had been in for so long that I no longer cared if I looked ~extra~ or like maybe half of my face was missing. Then, slowly, frames started shrinking, first on the runways, then the Kardashians. (It's always them isn't it) Reminiscent of every '90s cool girl, they were something new & the fashion world ate it up. Now that we're more than halfway through the year, I've decided to take it on. Is the trend dying already? How do I feel about it all? (This is v hard hitting investigative journalism)

Getting Behind The Small Sunglasses Trend

WHAT I'M WEARING: SHIRT | F21 (SIMILAR HERE & HERE) SKIRT | F21 (SIMILAR HERE)

After breaking them in a bit on myself, I actually quite like them. While big sunglasses can make one feel like Jackie O., walking through Fifth Avenue on a mission, the contrasting frames add a bit of effortless chic. We’re still seeing these babes on Instagram and magazines alike, and despite some hate (see mindy kaling’s ‘I think we’re gonna regret the small sunglasses trend’ tweet) I don’t think they’re going anywhere. 

Of course, by 2019 it might be a different story. But until then I’m standing behind this trend, because why not? Trends can be annoying, but then can also be really fun if you do it right.

Why do we even care about the size of the things that shield our eyes from blinding sunlight? Fashion, duh.
