Remember the micro bag? Pfft, so three seasons ago right?
Well, there’s a reason why the miniature handbag didn’t quite make it as a fashion staple. It simply wasn’t practical (if you can’t fit your keys or phone in your bag, what really is the point?), but that doesn’t mean that everything has to be full size to function. Other accessories, such as our faithful sunglasses, can afford the downsize treatment without being sidelined as a passing trend. They are pretty and also practical, and we hope that the micro shades are here to stay.
The micro sunglasses look has stormed the catwalks with its 90s appeal and has also become a fashion favourite amongst celebs. Including both Gigi and Bella Hadid, who appear to be huge fans of the small and narrow eye lens.
If you want to imitate the Hadid look, it’s time to get miniature with your eyewear. Think ultra narrow lens design, think 90s retro silhouettes, think fabulous tints of every colour, and think cool shapes such as exaggerated cateye or geometrics. Here are some top picks of micro shades from our current collection:
These stylish micro shades by Vogue are an SS18 season must-have for Bella followers. They can be worn all year round, and feature a retro shape and tinted lenses for added cool. Available in 6 different lens and frame colour combinations.
Small ovals work well with retro outfits, and they seem to have so much staying power in the world fashion. If you want to invest in some designer micro sunglasses that have timeless appeal, these Ray-Ban shades are the ultimate statement.
