Though, I enjoy styling vivid pieces and encourage you to try some of them too. The oversized sunglasses style became popular in the 60’s, when First Lady Jackie Kennedy, a fashion symbol of her time, started wearing them to keep a low and discreet profile. And who could forget the iconic Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s wearing oversized sunnies?
Oversized sunglasses have been a big deal in the eyewear fashion scene for at least a couple of years now, and I am seeing more and more oversized frames on the catwalks, red carpets, and in new ranges from many of the top designers.
