Want to know what sunglasses the celebs are wearing in 2019? Here are some of the biggest eyewear trends as spotted on the most followed celebrities right now. Including hyped up trends that have dominated the runways for spring, some fabulous retro styles, and trusty classics that are still adored decades on.
Here are the sunglasses trends you need to know about this year, and they all have the celebrity stamp of approval!
Kim Kardashian’s Flat Tops
Flat top sunglasses have been making their mark since last year. Bold and unashamedly brawny, they add macho power to your wardrobe. They have a sporty, androgynous edge, and not everyone can pull them off.
Our favourite former Spice girl, VB, got there first. She popularised the look, and was spotted numerous times styling the shades with the slickest of outfits. Often in a sharp suit, or a fearless trouser and shirt combo. Celebs such as Chrissy Teigen, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian all followed suit. But our favourite twist on this trend has to be Kim K. She’s given this eyewear hype the perfect mix of masculine and feminine.

Bella Hadid’s Microshades
We all know that Bella is the queen of miniature sunglasses. Unlike the microbag (which didn’t stick around for long), this statement eyewear trend has stood its ground. The cute and chic ‘microshade’ is here to stay if you ask us. And the best thing about these micro sunnies is their style versatility. They come in all shapes and sizes, including the super popular micro cateye, oval or round, and rectangular.
This downsized sunglasses look is also loved by Kylie Jenner, and of course Gigi Hadid (because sisters share wardrobes right?).

Olivia Palermo’s Oversized Shades
Microshades may be all the rage right now, but oversized is also coming back in. As worn by Olivia Palermo recently, these huge red carpet worthy sunglasses (the ones so big they cover all manners of sins) are still chic as hell. They’re great for all of those important events in your calendar – and just as great for those hangover days!
Copy Olivia Palermo’s style with the Bvlgari BV8207B frames, designed to flatter all face shapes and add instant glam to any outfit.
Lady Gaga’s Aviators
We’ve all known Gaga’s wardrobe to be a little OTT over the years. From that crazy meat dress to her fire-breathing brassiere on stage, there have been some ‘out there’ moments to say the least. But sometimes, simple is best. Whether it’s her recent role in ‘A Star Is Born’ playing the shy and timid Ally, or just just the natural evolution of her fashion sense, Gaga’s style seems to be getting increasingly sophisticated and understated. Maybe even low-key *gasp*. But when your hair’s on fleek and your shoes are killer, low-key is all you need.
Get the Gaga look with these classic Ray-Ban RB3026 Large Metal II aviators:
Rihanna’s Fenty Sunglasses
That’s right, the rumour mill is in motion. And if suspicions are correct, FENTY sunglasses could be landing soon. For FENTY makeup fabs, this is probably the best news ever. Perhaps the latest campaign photos are a clue as to what’s to come in Rihanna’s fashion line? Bold, all-black frames seem to a key look to go for.
If you love Rihanna’s sunglasses style, get your hands on a pair of these Vogue VO5235S shades. They’re a cool copy with a similar vibe.
Beyonce’s White Sunglasses
It seems that Queen Bey has been rocking a lot of white sunglasses of late. And they all have a fun, retro look to them. White eyewear is a great way to add a pop of colour to your wardrobe, and we think it’s ideal for festival season, glamorous beach holidays and VIP pool parties. Team with matching white accessories, or style with an all-black outfit to bring it to life. Whether you love bold rainbows or monochrome, white shades are a must-have accessory for SS19.
Copy Beyonce’s eyewear style with these Web WE0264 cateye frames – get them just in time for summer.
