They might not be entirely practical in terms of UV protection, but teeny-tiny sunglasses are officially in.

As Kanye himself has recently decreed, “the bigger the better” is no longer the unspoken sunglasses rule. Instead, only tiny ones barely covering your eye sockets are cool now.

Sorry to ruin your summer before it has even begun – that you’ll have to ditch your aviators.

Hollywood insiders have been reducing the size of their shades for a while now, marking it as the latest example of what fashion calls a “tricky trend”.


As seen in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim revealed that her newfound fondness for wearing small specs was down to her husband. “Kanye sent me a whole email like, ‘You cannot wear big glasses any more. It’s all about tiny little glasses,’” she said on the show.

“He sent me like, millions of 1990s’ photos with tiny little glasses like this.”

And, he’s right. Micro frames have rested on the noses of plenty of famous faces recently, from Kylie Jenner and Bella Hadid, to Rihanna, Zoe Kravitz and even Stranger Things star Millie Bobbie Brown.

Well, because they look really, really cool!

The ultimate statement accessory, this is a trend that sartorial introverts should avoid at all costs, but, if you’re brave enough, wearing a pair of microscopic sunnies expertly balanced on the bridge of your nose will earn you some serious style points.
