WHO: Baby Spice, ensembles from the spring 2018 Off-White runway show, a cloudless sky, Liv Tyler in Empire Records and Elsa from Frozen.

WHAT: As the 1990s continue to trend, we’ve seen the comeback of the classic baby blue colorway. However, we’re also seeing this color trend adopted in sunglass lenses as opposed to a colored acetate. These light blue lenses come as solid tints, gradient effects or mirrored treatments.

WEAR: (Top to Bottom) Luxottica’s Miu Miu SMU57U style turns heads with its distinctive cloud-like silhouette. Its blue mirrored lens effect also makes this look a standout for those who want to really make a fun statement. Kensie from Kenmark Eyewear shows off a cool, feminine appeal with its Make Believe style that features a stylish modified round silhouette topped off with flashy light blue mirrored lenses—perfect for summer. Randolph presents a classic, sleek appeal with its Hamilton style that also features a more modified round silhouette and is finished in a 22K champagne gold. This look is topped off with trendy light blue mirrored lenses. From De Rigo REM’s Police collection, the SPL830 style brings the glam vibes to this round-up. This sunglass shows off a beautiful blue gradient lens treatment that pairs well with its blue temple tips, and chic double bar. In Marchon’s recently launched DKNY collection, Style DK503S doubles up on the light blue trend with its blue crystal acetate construction that complements its light blue lenses for a fashion forward appeal.

WHY: Sometimes all it takes is a pop of color to amplify a look and these light blue lenses, whether gradient or mirrored, definitely do the job. While light blue lens treatments are great for warmer months, most are equally as ideal for winter. It doesn’t always take a funky silhouette to be eye catching, and these light blue lenses certainly prove that point.
