It all started when I came across a pair of Elizabeth and James sunglasses on Net-a-Porter and thought, If the Olsens are making oval-shaped sunglasses, they must be onto something. The approval of Elle Fanning and our Obsessee girls only helped fuel our confidence in the style. Then there was the fact that Saint Laurent's similar '90s-style white-framed sunnies had became incredibly popular earlier this summer too.
Some roundtabling, researching, and shopping later, we concluded that the stylish twins are right on the money with this trend. Not only are the Olsens making the shape for both of their brands (Elizabeth and James and The Row), Ashley has also been seen sporting it herself, along with a crop of It girls. Plus, a bunch of our favourite brands are on board.
