The recent trend of the ’90s inspired tiny microshades are sure cool and are super in (if you haven’t yet heard). Popular celebs such as Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner are wearing them, but were still not sure how or why it happened.
These tiny sunglasses come in a wide variety of shapes and colors, from oval, circle, cat eye and rectangle. But regardless of how you feel about them, if you hate them, or love them, they are seen everywhere and anywhere this summer.
Some people wear them to look like a Matrix character, other than Rihanna of course. Others such as Anne Hathaway and Mindy Kaling have decided to make fun of the trend through social media, and they’ve stirred up quite the controversy.
Yet the glasses are still selling as though they were free. Although they are far from free, being sold for hundreds of dollars from high-end shops and designers (they are also sold for 10 bucks on Amazon).
This raises the important question – are they even functional? Since you know, the ultimate purpose of sunglasses is to protect our eyes from UV rays. And as it turns out? Sunglasses with lenses that are an entire %75 smaller than the regular ones won’t really protect your eyes. Yikes.
