How I Took The Tiny Sunglasses Trend from Instagram to Real Life

The sunglasses trends of summer 2018 have been memorable, to say the least. It's been a summer of funky sunglasses – we’ve seen shades in all shapes, sizes, and colors and honestly, I’m living for it. After all, your fave sunglasses say a lot about you, and wearing trendy sunglasses can make you feel especially ~cool~.

With such a huge range of types and price ranges, it's an easy accessory for the college girl to experiment with and really own in her own way. If you haven't already tried to find your perfect fit, or are feeling a bit confused with how much sunglasses have shifted in the last few years (especially in this summer alone!) we've got you covered. 

Anything goes when it comes to sunnies these days, as evidenced by Kendall Jenner and all of her friends...

...except maybe the giant shades that we were all wearing a few years ago. Giant bug glasses are def a no-go these days.

Of course, Bella Hadid has championed funny sunnies since the beginning.

Bella went ALL IN on the tiny sunglasses trend. And, obviously, she kills it, because she's freaking Bella Hadid.

But what does this trend look like on normal/non-famous people?

Is it realistic or just something we like to look at on Instagram? I wanted to find out for myself, so I tried Covry’s Kuma sunglasses in Canary.

They’re a little on the small side, and the wire frames give them a cool, vintage look. I threw them on with a cropped t-shirt and jeans and honestly, I loved them! I don’t usually like how sunglasses look on me, but these were really cute. I felt very “fashion girl” wearing them.

I kinda feel like these were gateway sunnies – now I just wanna try more fun sunnies. Maybe some really tiny ones? Some with colored lenses? Funky frames?

The possibilities are truly endless.
