Fall's Biggest Sunglass Trend Is The Light Tint

by Eliza Florendo

You know what they say — fashion is cyclical. Which is why a resurgence of '70s style is no surprise. Enter the light tint sunglass, which is about to hit it huge in street style (if it hasn't already where you are). This fall and winter, hippie, classic American vibes are all the rage, and denim, suede, and bandanas are going to reign supreme.

Everywhere I look in New York City — be that in magazines, catalogs, on the streets, and at events, I've seen the light tint sunglasses. On celebrities, too! Longtime lovers have been Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr., but more recent trend setters that are loving this look include Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin. What exactly makes it so cool? Well, it's on par with the sheer/see through trend, which gives a little more of a peek than an opaque material.

There's something so flirty and fun about seeing someones eyes through their lenses. While we all preferred all-opaque sunglasses in the past so we could hide our hangovers and stare at people in peace, the see-through lens is what the fashion it-people are sporting at the moment.

And I've got to say — I'm totally digging it. Paired with a suede jacket, your favorite denim, and some white sneakers, you've got a look down. It's one small accessory that makes one big statement. It's no wonder this trend is all over our favorite street style stars for fall 2016.

Yas, slay slay slay.
