Be still our 00s heart: tinted specs are back

By Daisy Keens, 21 March 2017

Firm believer that sunnies are for life, not just for summer? Same. With that in mind, and summer slowly (so slowly) approaching, it's time to dish on the latest sunglasses memo: tinted specs are in. Yep, those colourful glasses you couldn't get enough of in the 00s are back, and this time, they're high-fashion approved.

Cue Miu Miu. Sending amber-tinted sunnies down its SS17 runway, the Italian fashion house cemented the return of the throwback shade du jour. Except, unlike 00s you, these babies were styled with earth-toned poolside get-ups – not hip-hugging denim and sequin butterfly tops. Whodathunkit?!

We see you, Bella Hadid. Taking an unconventional approach to styling up yellow sunnies, Bella teamed hers with a smart-ish midi dress (note the PM-appropes slit), OTK boots and a grey blazer-coat combo. Moral of the story: wherever your outfit goes, your tinted specs can follow.

Prep your eyeballs (and your outfits) for sun by copping a pair of aviators with yellow lenses, à la baby Bels. Wear 'em with your fave ripped jeans and fresh tee combo for an instant hit of fun, or make like Miu Miu and rock them when you're heading for the beach.
