Love it or hate it, Y2K style has made its return. Heralding in audacious looks from the era from sparkly handbags to low-rise jeans, 2000s nostalgia seems to be popping up everywhere and the latest eyewear collections are no different.

What is Y2K style?

Can’t recall the style markers of the iconic shades of the early-noughts? Here’s a hint: acetates were translucent, lenses were tinted and frames were definitely rimless. Futuristic frames like trendy shield sunglasses became so part of the 2000s fashion lexicon that their reboot has us feeling a modern nostalgia too.

Not one for a noughties revival? Good news. These Y2K-inspired sunglasses have received a modern revamp, meaning sleeker lines, flattering tints with a more grown-up take on silhouettes that you can wear with any outfit.
