Move Aside Matrix Shades: Oversize Sunglasses Are Back and Better For Summer 2020
Summer 2019 couldn't get enough of teeny-tiny, '90s-inspired shades, but for summer 2020, we're all about the oversize sunglasses look. I don't know about you, but I am so glad for the shift in fashion, because unlike Matrix shades, big sunglasses suit every face shape, and they add a touch of '50s glamour to your casual park looks.
The world of fashion trends loves to play with extremes — whether that be fabrics choices (sweet floral organza versus edgy black leather), or favoured palettes (bold neon greens versus muted neutrals). Even when you think about handbag trends, we went from Jacquemus's viral micro bags to oversize totes that will have you searching for your keys for hours. When it comes to sunglasses, we're pleased for the change in pace. Not only do bigger sunglasses complement every face shape, they also nod to nostalgic style moments of the early 2000s — particularly the California socialite look popularised by Rachel Zoe, and the classic glamour of the '50s — most notably styled by Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
Ahead, 14 of our favourite big and bold sunglasses to shop for summer 2020.
