WHO: One of the most ‘Instagrammed’ and also hotly debated trends. Loved by influencers. The Tinkerbell, Thumbelina and Polly Pocket of eyewear. “All the Small Things” by Blink 182.

WHAT: We’re talking about micro-frames or eyewear on the smaller end of the spectrum. These sunglasses first started popping up on Instagram feeds and have made their way into many of this year’s eyewear collections.

WEAR: (Top to Bottom) Safilo’s Fendi FF0342/s is a fun, wearable take on the mini frame. With its oval, slightly cat eye silhouette and colorful dual-toned lenses this is very much an eye catching look. Retrosuperfuture’s Smile frame style is a sleek rendition of the small frame trend. Featured here in all-black, it’s characterized by a low-riding wide front with rectangular lenses and sturdy nose bridge, giving this style its signature 1990s look. From Marchon’s CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC collection this frame style exudes a futuristic vibe with its unique geometric shape. Topped off with a powder blue colorway, this frame is definitely a statement-maker. From Luxottica’s Prada collection, style SPR63U is definitely out of this world. This metal look featuring a narrow silhouette and exaggerated cat eye shape paired with a slim brow bar is a daring take on the small sunglass trend.

WHY: There is no denying that the micro sunglass trend has sparked many debates. Whether you love them or not, these frames styles are quite the fan favorites of the internet’s most popular bloggers, models and influencers. While these looks are on the smaller end of things, they come in a variety of silhouettes, with many different treatments—some of which can be pretty wearable. “Though she be but little, she is fierce.” –Shakespeare.
