The sunglasses trend that defined this year was hardly of the classic variety. Tiny sunglasses had a short-lived and controversial run, and the impossibly slim shades' popularity is starting to wane. Frankly, I couldn't be happier to embrace more eyewear styles that will stand the test of time. If you are looking for timeless sunglasses to invest in now and wear for years to come, the answer to classic shades is, in my opinion, the Ward sunglasses from the New Orleans–based brand Krewe.
Beyoncé, Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, and so many more celebrities with killer style can't be wrong about Krewe's Ward frames. They're wire-frame sunglasses made from titanium, which ultimately make them a timeless pick, but designed in a unique geometric shape.
It's no surprise Hollywood's most stylish crowd has been wearing the frames for years now—one quick scroll through the following photos will prove that. But it was Krewe's founder and sunglasses expert Stirling Barrett who confirmed exactly why this wire-frame design will only gain even more popularity.
“Within frame design itself, we're getting less avant-garde with our colorways and focusing more on tonal designs," Barrett noted, which means gold and silver frames are winning out over more wild color options. "I also see us moving more toward classic, never-going-out-of-style designs.”
Well, that pretty much settles it for us. Keep reading to see how celebs have worn Krewe's Ward sunglasses, and then shop the style along with more wire-frame styles on offer from Krewe.
