This Outdated Sunglasses Trend Has Officially Been Replaced

A few years back, teeny-tiny sunglasses were everywhere on the fashion scene. You really couldn’t escape them. Now, though, it seems that fashion people are wearing them less than they were in the past.

“Tiny sunglasses were a trend I should have never tried, so I am grateful they are finally on the fritz,” Who What Wear Editorial Director Lauren Eggertsen recently shared when weighing in on outdated accessories. More of our editors agree that small sunglasses may have had their moment and are making room for fresher trends, including the yellow-lens sunglasses that are really making a splash in 2021.

Spotted in wardrobes of celebs such as Kendall Jenner, in collections from buzzy brands like Lexxola, and even on Amazon, these colorful shades have an undeniable cool factor. Plus, they’re available in just about every possible shape and style, so you’ll be able to find a pair that works for whatever silhouette works best on you. Ahead, the coolest yellow-lens sunglasses to add to your wardrobe.

This is one of my favorite shapes when it comes to sunglasses. I can't get enough rectangular frames. Yellow lenses give the ’90s-inspired silhouette a cool, modern update.

Pilot Sunglasses

Pilot sunglasses are trending hard, but versions with yellow frames are trending even harder. You know what to do.

If you’re inspired by the “grandma” trends that are circulating, oversize sunglasses are a great place to get started.

Y2K Sunglasses

No matter where you stand on the return of rimless Y2K sunglasses, they are officially back and suddenly everywhere on the fashion scene.

Next up, orangey-yellow hues. Orange is hands down one of the biggest colors of the season, so it was only a matter of time before these frames took off.
