The Matrix or tiny sunglass trend is undeniable, as it is seen everywhere from the catwalks to streets. Sci-fi inspired in general has been super trendy lately and this just takes it to another level. When it comes to sunglasses, futuristic black lenses and thin frames make any look strong and modern. Supermodels like Kendall Jenner, Kaia Gerber, and Bella and Gigi Hadid, alongside celebs Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and Millie Bobbie Brown can take lots of credit for bringing tiny sunglasses back into the fashion mix. Iconic thin sunglasses are also sported by street stylers and influencers. However you decide to rock yours, Style Station recommends that you wear them confidently and with lots of sass and class. Whether you wear them to a business meeting in a blazer or to the beach with a crop top, there is always an excuse to accessorize with them. Like all sunglass trends, shapes and styles, there are those that will suit your face well and you just have to find the right pair. Fortunately, the matrix trend is pretty easy to get down and looks good on almost every facial structure. The angles on the glasses against the softness of a round face can even make for a slimming effect. Our favorite brands encapsulating the tiny sunglasses trend are Illesteva, Roberi and Fraud, and Le Spec x Adam Selman – their items will be linked below. Their shades have been spotted on everyone and Style Station can’t seem to get enough. The point of Matrix sunglasses is that they are very small and narrow, so most of your face can be seen. You can still wear a dramatic smokey-eye and it will shine through. They might not be practical in shielding your face from the sun or covering up your hangover or under-eye bags, but they sure are charming. Rapper and designer Kanye West even suggested ditching oversized frames. Like we said before, it starts on the runway… from Miu Miu to Louis Vuitton, the glasses can actually be traced back to Balenciaga’s spring/summer 2017 show. With Spring just around the corner, what better time to than now to start giving the look a spin.
