Major ’90s looks reinterpreted for now

Classic eyewear is the key to rocking throwback style in 2017

By Brittany Adams  September 14th, 2017

There’s a palpable ’90s spirit in the air. Part of what makes the decade so ripe for revival is it didn’t tap into just one look. Stripped-down minimalism, rebellious grunge, and all-out glamour are some of the distinct fashion moments from that era to stand the test of time. In honour of the Oliver Peoples‘ 30th anniversary, we’re showing you how to rock major ’90s trends in 2017―and the best glasses to wear with them.

3 top sunglass trends for your 90’s feel:

Classic Cool Girl

Nothing's sexier than your favorite blue jeans and the perfect little white t-shirt. This tried-and-true combo has been winning us over for decades, but it was arguably the It Girls of the '90s―with their bedhead and rockstar boyfriends―who best embodied the "too cool to care" vibe. Make the look yours by knotting the tee, shaking out your hair, and adding mirrored circular sunnies that catch a glare.

The Minimalist

If there's one silhouette that defined the '90s, it's the bias-cut slip dress. Streamlined and curve-skimming, a slinky slip is the perfect thing to wear when you'd rather be naked. Keep things simple with barely-there makeup and clear heels, but introduce a bit of personality in the form of pointdexter glasses that add a nerdy-chic touch.

Nouveau Grunge

Inspired by the middle-finger-to-the-world musicians who emerged from the Seattle scene in the early '90s, fashion designers put ripped flannels and combat boots on the runways, and the rest is history. These days, we're feeling more of a subtle, refined take on classic grunge references. A deconstructed, homespun skirt and shrunken sweater channel that rule-breaker attitude― while a killer pair of sepia-stained shades pulls it all together.
