6 Outdated Sunglasses Trends That Flew Too Close To The Sun

No outfit is complete without a good pair of sunglasses, that's just the truth. If you're in need of an accessory but can't find something that really vibes with your ensemble, just grab your favorite sunnies and watch how they immediately upgrade the look. The best part is the sun doesn't have to be out in order to rock a hot pair of shades. You can totally wear them on top of your head and still look chic (plus, they're a cute way to keep your hair back and out of your face).

It's only March, but summer will be here before you know it, and we want you to be prepared. To give you a head start on shopping for new sunnies, we've made a list of six outdated sunglasses trends to avoid in 2023. We know, it's sad to see some of your favorites go, but don't worry, we've included styles that are on-trend that you're absolutely going to love.

Teeny-tiny shades

Bella Hadid brought back these bite-sized '90s shades a couple of years ago, but we're sorry to say their moment is dead and gone. This year's motto? Go big or go home. Yep, the beloved oversized sunnies are back! We all wore them during the mid-to-late 2000s, and after they spent some time in the back of our closets, we can't wait to start rocking them again.

Circular sunnies

Again, it was thanks to celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber that had us running out to buy these circular frames. Unfortunately, the look is outdated, and people are gravitating toward futuristic aviators. Think of them as the hotter older sister of the original aviators we all know and love. When you're out shopping, look for angular frames and colored lenses, and make sure to pick a pair with an extra-wide style.

The hexagon shape

These six-sided frames were fun, but it's time to leave the hexagon where it belongs: in 10th-grade geometry class. Instead, try on a pair of angular cat-eye sunnies. They're reminiscent of the shades your grandma wore in the 1950s, but have a more modern feel. Think of them as a trendy twist on an old classic.

Floral-print sunglasses

2015 called and it wants its floral-print sunglasses back. Sorry, but it's time to put these outdated shades down and pick up a motorsport pair instead. The floral print is so girly and dainty, and motorsport sunglasses give any look a sporty, cool-girl aesthetic. The moment you put them on, we guarantee you'll feel like a total rockstar.

Multicolored frames

Don't get us wrong, we love color, but there's just something about multicolored frames that feels super outdated. This summer, steer clear of those colorful shades, and opt for a pair of sunglasses with colored lenses. It's an easy way to add a pop of color to your look, and they're more aesthetically pleasing than your basic black lenses.

Bold logos

Frames with huge logos are not on the fashion forecast for 2023. These bold emblems are especially common on designer sunglasses. Shades like these act as a status symbol, letting people know you spent $450 on a pair of sunnies you're probably going to lose at the beach. This summer, skip the logos (trust us, no one cares if they're Gucci).
