Gen Z loves retro skinny sunglasses. These are our favorites

No, you’re not in The Matrix, you’re just in the new world of Gen Z fashion trends.

Like most other closet staples, sunglasses trends come and go, from the brightly colored lenses of Lexxola sunglasses to giant shield-shaped goggles that mix style and ski goggles. But for now, we’re looking to our Gen Z fashionistas for the next big thing and it turns out they’re actually really tiny.

Skinny sunglasses are here, according to the next generation and their favorite app – TikTok. One pair in particular hit the For You page this summer, and for under $ 15 on Amazon, you can get on the trend. The BUTABY rectangular sunglasses come in a set of two for $ 13.95, with the black and brown tortoiseshell combination being the most popular, as shown in the viral video below.

Amazon sunglasses are available in a variety of other colors, but don’t stop there. Since summer turned into fall for skinny sunglasses, many other retailers have stepped in, offering their own take on sunglasses. To help you get the look, we’ve rounded up other styles besides the viral styles, offering ideas on a budget and more candle options, like the ones seen on Kendall Jenner.

Keep scrolling through picks from Amazon and ASOS and other brands like Ray-Ban and even a Cartier option to keep you in shape from late summer to early fall.


Get the viral TikTok sunglasses, now for a slightly cheaper price. The pair of twos used to cost $ 15, but are now $ 13.95 in the black and tortoiseshell jumpsuit. They also come in other combinations, like a black and yellow set and a black and orange combo to name a few.
