Oh, small-framed sunglasses — the current, predominant trend on Instagram and celebrity It girls everywhere. This barely-there accessory has been stripped of its sun-protecting purpose, but boy, can they complete any look. Especially now, when everything old is new again.
From fanny packs to oversized blazers, crop tops, and a pair of high-waisted pants, if you put them all together you can easily emulate Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez or Dua Lipa, who have all been spotted with their choice of small frames propped on the bridge of their nose — the finishing touch on their ’90s-esque outfits.
But it wasn’t until designer Demna Gvasalia sent out models with small black sunglasses down the runway of Balenciaga’s Spring 2017 show that this trend really took flight. And after Alexander Wang’s most recent FW18 collection, we have reached peak Matrix. Wang has given a whole new meaning to “80s corporate,” pairing his terrifyingly chic looks with the small-framed sunglasses in his latest collaboration with Korean eyewear brand, Gentle Monster.
Sadly, this black sleek pair, dubbed “the CEO sunglasses” isn’t out yet. However, make sure you sign up for that email alert to let you know when they are available because we are sure they’re going to sell out fast. Now, if you can’t wait for the collab to drop, don’t worry. We’ve put together 12 small-framed sunnies that will (hopefully) bring out the CEO in you, no matter your budget.
