I have some good news, which you may or may not have heard already: The tiny sunglasses trend has expired and we’re on to the next. Even though It girls like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid embraced it, it was controversial and short-lived. You may have also heard that the eyewear trend that’s replaced it is basically the polar opposite: big 1970s shades.
Now, this trend actually started bubbling up a year ago, but it’s really been gaining steam as of late, with Instagram influencers and celebrities around the world officially ditching their tiny sunglasses in favor of large bug-eyed ones. The latest example of this comes in the form of two majorly influential celebrities: Jennifer Lopez and Chrissy Teigen. Yesterday, both stars stepped out (J.Lo in Isreal and Chrissy in L.A.) wearing the trend, really solidifying it as the accessory to own now and for the coming season. Lopez paired hers with an equally ’80s Gucci outfit and Teigen with a casual black dress, flat sandals, and turban headband. Given that the ’70s bourgeois trend was all over the F/W ’19 runways, you should probably go ahead and get yourself a pair, which I’ve assisted with below.
