Trends tend to go full circle. According to Dr. Vanessa Brown, a professor at the School of Art and Design at Nottingham-Trent University, once a fashion trend has reached its aesthetic peak, it will instantly go in the opposite direction.
While oversized sunglasses were once in vogue, they eventually became so big that they covered most of your face. Although they still remain trendy, small shades began to make a comeback around the start of 2017. One of the first brands to take the lead in making this change was Stella McCartney, exclusively promoting the tiny sunglasses trend.
Moreover, we believe the credit goes to the fashion designer Adam Selman. His collaboration with the eyewear brand Le Specs resulted in a long list of celebrities wearing them last summer, like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and many more. Believe it or not, they were also relatively affordable. Who needs a 1000$ pair from Gucci when you can have it for 120$?
