The Kurt Cobain style
The 90s throwback look is becoming increasingly popular. This was first made famous by Kurt Cobain who wore these white, bug-eye frames. They have been made popular again by musicians such as Pharrell donning these iconic shades.
This classic style has been around for decades but still remains fashionable. The popular designs incorporate round or square lenses with black plastic and wood finishes and tortoiseshell patterns. With a wide range of styles available, it’s easy to pick a pair to match your look.
Aviators are arguably the most popular sunglasses style of choice this season. Designs vary but you can always expect big, teardrop lenses with tinted or reflected finishes and a double bridge.
This style gets its name from the shape of the gap between each lens. This distinctive shape is made from the high, curved bridge and round lenses. Try a shade of tortoiseshell or brown for the ultimate summer vibe.
Round colored lenses
Another 90s trend enjoying a comeback at the moment are small, colorful lenses. These shades have thin, metal frames and brightly colored lenses. Musicians looking for a slightly more subtle look are choosing them for a bit of flair.
