Summer staple: Retro Sunglasses

Vintage sunglasses have always been on our radar but this season they’re cooler than ever. From Celine to Gucci, the 2018 runways were rife with exceptional eyewear from teeny tiny cat eye to classic aviators with a retro twist.

One style you’ll found an abundance of are micro sunglasses. They have a distinctly 70s vibe and we’re lusting over each and every one, as are some of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities. Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez have all stepped out donning a pair. And it doesn’t stop there. Rapper-turned-designer Kanye West even reportedly told his wife and fashion darling Kim Kardashian to ditch her oversized sunnies in favour of more modest sizes. “Kanye sent me a whole email like, ‘You cannot wear big glasses anymore,'” Kim explained. “He sent me like, millions of nineties photos with tiny little glasses.”

We recommend you style them with a chic yet messy chignon and bright lips to channel old-school glamour. Make sure to opt for solid hues though. Micro shades with elaborate patterns will look a little OTT. Other than that, go all out. The smaller, the better.
