Kanye West and I Agree: Wear This Trend in 2018

small sunglasses street style



Last month we were clued into the fact that Kanye West thinks small '90s-style sunglasses are the next big trend. While these throwback sunnies aren't exactly new (they have been a celebrity fave and a runway staple), expect them to make a major splash this coming spring. My obsession began when I first started wearing Adam Selman and Le Spec's cat-eye style, but since then I've come to crave other tiny styles.

And I'm not the only one. I've seen this teeny-tiny accessory with increasing frequency in my Instagram feed, and this fashion month I expect to see plenty more, especially styles by up-and-coming brands like Poppy Lissiman and George Keburia.

While the style might at first feel jarring when we've all spent so many years favouring super-size shades, it's surprisingly wearable. My recommendation: Try wearing them a bit lower on the bridge of your nose; they frame the eye better when they're not pushed all the way up on the face. And if the super-skinny style seems a bit too much to start out with, there are other small shades that may feel a little less intimidating. Shop a few of my current favourites below.   

These are the glasses you've spotted all over your Instagram feed.
