If you’re a regular Instagram browser, blog reader, model admirer or just anybody who L-O-V-E-S fashion, you will know that 90s cat eye and micro sunglasses are THE current accessory hype.
Donned on the faces of many a celeb, from the Hadid sisters to fashion blogger Aimee Song, Poppy Lissiman’s Le Skinny specs seem to be the it-crowd’s favourite outfit embellishment for Spring/Summer 18.
These babies won’t be a complete bank breaker, coming in at a sound £75. However, for a style that isn’t guaranteed to last a lifetime, some of us are more hesitant to splash a lot of cash on the micro trend.
But people of the internet, I have your back. If like me, you’re digging the feline-come-matrix vibes this season but don’t want to spend more than your weekly food shop on some frames, I present to you… eBay’s answer to Poppy Lissiman sunglasses.
Although I was tempted by at least six colourways, I chose to go with simple black and for something a bit more vibrant, but still classic, red. Together both pairs came to a total of £9. I chose to go with only two as I wanted to see how the shape would suit my face and how they compared to the advertised photos… You know what eBay’s like. I was more than pleasantly surprised and now I have my eye on the translucent pink option.
I found this particular seller through searching “90s Small Cat Eye Sunglasses”, however, there are so many similar and funky styles available for as little as £2 on eBay. This way you can explore the trend on a budget and still develop your personal style without delving into your overdraft.
Let me know what SS18 looks you’re living for.
