Tiny 90’s, Matrix-style angular specs featured heavily on the Prada catwalk and have been spotted on the likes of Bella Hadid and Kendell Jenner. Of course, they are now widely available and are a go-to cutting edge trend that exudes attitude and confidence. Check out Roberi & Fraud’s pair on VILLOID.

Elsewhere, oversized retro sunnies are having a moment in fashion and bring a nostalgic, but modern, addition to an outfit. ADER error have perfected the look and highstreet brands such as Monki are supplying the chunky-framed goods.


The forever-impressive cat-eye stands its ground on the fashion stage, having dominated catwalks and high streets alike for years. The simple reason, this select piece of eyewear is insanely wearable. So to the cry of “but no sunglasses suit my face shape!”, we call B.S. Cat-eye sunglasses guarantee success and sass. And if you’re lusting after the sold-out Adam Selman x Le Specs collection, ZeroUV have an affordable assortment of colours and specific styles.


Along with some distinctive shapes and classics, sunglasses have never been so extravagant. Dolce & Gabbana pulled out all the stops with decorative florals and Queen of Hearts card-glasses. If that’s a little much, these Markus Lupfer daisy sunglasses will make your world a whole lot sunnier.

So far we’ve covered Matrix-style, retro aesthetic, cat-eye and florals… Here are the other six sunglasses that really took our fancy.
