All the small 90s sunglasses you need to invest in now 2019

The small sunnies trend is growing so here are 6 sunglasses Kanye would totally approve of.

The old rumour states that every 20 years or so, the old fashion trends do a cheeky recycle. So when you do the maths it means it's time for the 90s to have their moment – and boy oh boy, we're so ready.

While we're seeing a number of trends like double denim and cool hats come for another go around, it's small sunglasses that are the talk of the town.

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. Little sunglasses are the only thing Kanye wants to see on your face. While they may not shield your eyes from the sun, these will take your fashion game from 0 to 100 quicker than you can upload your Instagram.


Pointed cat-eye

Sleek, sexy and timeless. The cat-eye sunglasses definitely give us those retro vibes, but now in a mini version they fit right into the small sunglasses trend! We can all thank Julia Roberts for the 90s inspo when she wore these back in 1999 with her leather jacket and black beret – which has also come back into fashion. Coincidence? We think not!

Sporty

Arguably the most 90s sunglasses on the market and made popular by Rihanna, what's not to love? These give us major Sporty Spice vibes and it makes us a wannabe – there ain't nothing wrong with that!


Half cut

Definitely up there as one of our favourite styles at the moment, the half cut sunglasses are the 90s embodied in one very necessary accessory. In a number of different coloured frames, this is the style that will turn any outfit cool.

Round

The oval or round small sunnies are like 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 time or another. These were what every 90s cool kid was wearing back in the day, even Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen back in 1998.

Rectangular

This is probably one of the harder styles to pull off, but wear them on the bridge of your nose and you're good to go! These remind us of an ultra-skinny cat eye style with a touch of Keanu Reeves from The Matrix.


Coloured lense

I know what you may be thinking. Tinted specs were from the 70s, but the 90s revamped them for its own party 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, blue and so many more.
