Where to buy small sunglasses now that Kanye banned all the big ones
Kanye West recently sent Kim Kardashian an e-mail instructing her to stop wearing big sunglasses, according to Kim on an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Kanye told her that small, 90s sunglasses were back in, and that she had to keep up with the trend.

And if Kim’s keeping up, then well, so are we.
We’ve seen these teeny shades. They’re all different shapes and colors, but all the same, 90s size — tiny. Models like Bella and Gigi Hadid are bringing this vintage trend back to life with the help of some really unique brands.
Here’s where to get the Ye-approved look.
1. Roberi & Fraud
The brand Roberi & Fraud is worn by it girls everywhere, including Danielle Berstein of WeWoreWhat and Bella Hadid. These are the smallest of the small, and if you’re dying to look like John Lennon.
2. Alain Mikli
Alain Mikli has some small sunglasses, but the brand’s best is the collaboration with designer Alexandre Vauthier. How good are these?!
3. Poppy Lissiman
Poppy Lissiman is most popular for it’s small, skinny, and colorful shades. The brand is worn by all of your favorite models, and there are tons of fun colors to choose from.
4. Gentle Monster
I think Gentle Monster takes the cake for coolest small sunglasses brand. Don’t know how well you can see through that red line though, tbh. I love their sleek vibe with all of their sunglasses.
5. Le Specs x Adam Selman
Le Specs did a collaboration with designer Adam Selman that swept the nation. Every celeb that has any sort of street style wears these shades, and they’re basically the OG of the trend.
A new favorite of the Hadid sisters is Illesteva. Their shapes are super unique, and I’m starting to become a fan, too.
BLANK. seems fairly new to the game, but their skinny shades are still legit. Check them out if you’re looking for more natural colors, but you still want a small shape.
