Oval sunglasses style history
A firm 90s favourite, retro oval sunglasses are making a comeback this year, but where did this classic style come from?
Moving away from the oversized frames of the 70s and 80s, the 90s brought sleek silhouettes into fashion, epitomised by the era’s oval-shaped glasses. With softly curved lenses and usually tiny frames, the oval design experimented with a more minimalistic style and quickly became an iconic vintage look. With celebs today back on the retro oval trend, what better time than now to find your own pair of vintage oval sunglasses?
