An Oval-Framed Sunglasses Trend Has Taken Shape

If you look at almost any trendy eyewear roundup in the last year, you’re bound to find one common shape among every list: oval sunglasses.

Whether they’re wireless mini frames straight from the ‘90s or an oblong skinny acetate frame, classic oval frames will stand the test of time. From the Princess Diaries poster brilliantly recreated as a Halloween costume by Hailey Bieber to throwback street-style shots from Julia Roberts, these chic oblong sunglasses work for every face shape and every occasion. They pair easily with everything, proving they’ll never go out of style.

Oval sunglasses act as an easy medium between the ultra-mini small sunglasses and the bug-eyed oversized options. Fendi, Miu Miu, and Balenciaga all sent frames with this trending sunglass shape down the runways this year, not to mention they are beloved by Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner, and Hailey Bieber alike so you’ll definitely be in good company.

I have found the trend splits into a Matrix-like throwback with skinny metal frames, and a rounded oval shape (as popularized by the Balenciaga glasses).

Some oval-framed favorites on EZContacts

Oblong acetate frames get a bold update with oversized arms featuring the Gucci emblem. These statement glasses are the perfect summer accessory against a stack of gold jewelry.

Taupe acetate frames feel fresh and light for summer. These frames are set against bronze lenses for a tonal look perfect for a golden tan.

If you’re hesitant to embark on the teeny tiny sunglass trend, these Alaia frames are slightly larger with a subtle embellishment, feeling more wearable than its oblong alternatives.

While Ray-Ban gold frames have popularized over recent years, these black-on-black matte frame is a spot-on ‘90s iteration of this trend.

Tory Burch shades get a minimalist upgrade with a gold brow bar, the perfect complement to navy lenses and dainty gold frames.
