You know what they say — the tinier the sunglasses, the more stylish the outfit. OK, that's not really a saying, but it seems to be the case these days. Basically every celebrity, model, and It person has been spotted sporting tiny sunglasses as part of their ensemble over the past year, whether it's out and about running errands or walking a major red carpet like the Met Gala. They are the must-have accessory of 2018, especially for the upcoming summer. And while they may not be the most practical — they barely cover your eyes as it is — they'll complement your summery sun dresses and distressed jort outfits perfectly, not to mention make for the most Instagrammable moments. (That said, if you are exposing your eyes to the sun for a long period of time, it might be a good idea to bring a more functional, back-up pair that can actually protect your peepers.)
But not all tiny sunglasses are created equal. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. That's the most fun thing about the hot summer accessory — there is a pair for everyone, no matter your preferred aesthetic or silhouette. Going for a chic and retro vibe? Vogue x Gigi Hadid has a pair for you. Feeling more sporty? Take a look at Louis Vuitton. Want to look like you're a character from The Matrix? The options are endless.
Here are 11 pairs of tiny sunglasses that will upgrade your look instantly.
