5. Colorful Clout

Oval sunglasses, or like the kids like to call them “clout” glasses, haven’t died with the turn of the seasons. They’re still around, but have been revamped. We saw them in the standard black, white and red last year. Now they are in multiple neon and pastel colors and fun prints, like these ‘Sky’ print ones from Urban Outfitters, USD 18.

7. Square

The 90’s wasn’t too long ago, but they are still considered ‘retro.’  A lot of fashion trends from skirts, blouses, and now sunglasses are making their way back to the surface from a couple decades ago. Urban Outfitters is always on top of decade trends and have a huge selection of 90’s inspired eyewear. These dainty square sunglasses are surely inspired by 90’s classic film Clueless.

Clear & Colored Sunglasses

8. Clear & Colored

Again another 90’s trend that is coming back to fruition. Colored lenses have been a thing in the past couple of years, but we’re throwing it back further with these rimless ones from ASOS, USD 19.60.

9. Oversized Square

Quay is most known for their collaboration collections with influencers and celebrities like Desi Perkins and this one with Kylie Jenner. The Quay oversized square sunglasses (USD 70) are definitely circa 2010 and giving us ‘Jersey Shore’ vibes.
