They say that every 20 years or so, old fashion trends are recycled. And if you do the maths, this means that we're now overdue for a 90s revival – and boy oh boy are we ready.
I mean, when fashion guru Kanye West emailed his wife Kim Kardashian and told her to stop wearing big sunglasses, we all got the memo. While they may not shield your eyes from the sun, they will take your fashion game from 0 to 100 quicker than you can upload a new pic to Instagram.
Sleek, sexy and timeless, cat-eye sunglasses definitely give us all the retro vibes, and now they're back and smaller than ever. Channel Julia Roberts in Notting Hill and pair these babies with a leather jacket and black beret.

Oval or round-shaped small sunnies are truly the cream of the crop. You've probably seen A-listers like Gigi, Kendall and Bella herself (below) sporting a pair of these at some point or another.

I know what you may be thinking. Tinted specs are from the 70s. But they definitely made a comeback in the 90s with rappers like Eve and Lil' Kim sporting these bad boys. Now they're back and better than ever in an array of colours like red, yellow, pink and blue.
