Tiny handbags have been a big trend on and off for years. From box clutchesbarely big enough for a lipstick, to the recent return of the bum bag, fashion has often encouraged us to travel light.
Now the trend has extended to eyewear. In today’s supermarket of style, fashion is full of retro references, from ’70s corduroy to ’80s logo mania. Now it’s a throwback to the ‘90s with micro shades, first seen on Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 17 catwalk.
Impractical they may be – and the jury’s out on how flattering they are – but they’re an easy way to update your look for Spring. If the micro trend isn’t for you, don’t fear – shop Fashtory’s accessories edit for alternative inspiration.
