Excuse Us While We Obsess Over Gigi Hadid And Kendall Jenner’s Sunglasses
You really don’t have to be a fashionista to know that the current fashion zeitgeist is a reflection of the 90s; all you need is vision and probably a little knowledge of fashion history is you weren’t born to witness the fashion awesomeness of the 90s. And we aren’t talking just apparel, which BTW is all about deconstructing every 90s trend, but also the accessories including sunglasses. Moving away from the oversized, sleek frames and black and brown tints, eyewear now is bringing back the typical 90s traits of smaller sizes, tinted glasses and thick, coloured frames.
While reduced sizes and tinted glasses have been taking over the eyewear scene for the last couple of seasons with celebrity style icons including Rihanna, Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez and several others wearing them on repeat, we now have thick coloured frames taking a front seat too. The latest to make a strong case in favour of this 90-s inspired sunnies’ trend are Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Because, of course!
The supermodels recently caught up for a dinner date in NYC working cool casuals AND chill sunglasses. Here take a look…
Gigi was first spotted exiting her apartment wearing a vintage boyfriend high-waist Tommy Hilfiger jeans that she teamed with a bright red custom ‘Gigi’ sweatshirt from the same label. However, for her dinner date, the model took her sweatshirt off to reveal a cropped black top underneath. With her outfit, the actress stepped into a pair of black Gucci kicks and accessorised her casuals with golden loops and a pair of red cat-eye shades by Adem Salmen x Le Specs, the ones she’s worked earlier too.
Like Gigi, Kendall Jenner too worked casuals for the do opting for a white lapped baby turtleneck top by Ekhaus Latta and a pair of high-waist blue boyfriend jeans. The actress stepped into a pair of white high-top trainers from Raf Simons x Adidas collaborative collection and lugged on a quilted black Chanel bag. Kendall too matched her shades to her top and opted for a pair of rectangular white Illesteva sunglasses.
