Yes, sportswear sunglasses will definitely be the 2019 fashion obsession.
Summer 2018 was all about tiny sunglasses. It all started when Kanye West once famously told his wife Kim Kardashian to ditch her big sunglasses for tiny, little ones. Not only Kim took the advice, everyone did. We can surely say that the year of 2018 was the year of tiny sunglasses. However, it seems like the tiny sunglasses trend has run its course…
The industry is now in favour of the sporty-meets-ugly-chic accessory. They starred in some of the coolest spring-summer 2019 fashion shows. Alexander Wang and Vetements are the latest designer brands to partner with Oakley, so that means we’re going to see these sportswear sunglasses pretty much everywhere.
However, during Rihanna’s final Fenty X Puma runway show last September, those athletic eyewear were featured throughout the catwalk, as seen on models such as Kaia Gerber, Selena Forrest, and on Rihanna herself.
However, I can surely say that the celebrities are already obsessing over sportswear sunglasses. From Dua Lipa to Rita Ora, Gigi Hadid and many, many more fashion icons. Also, Bella Hadid already got to test drive one of those sunnies, sporting it to Virgil Abloh‘s LV presentation.
Sportswear sunglasses are beautiful. They go with every kind of outfit.
