Let’s take it back to 1995, when the hit sitcom Friends was only in its second season, chokers necklaces were everywhere and double denim was completely acceptable. Whilst these trends seem to have come back around, it was around this era that tiny first sunglasses made an appearance.

By 1999, tiny sunglasses were well and truly integrated into popular culture, with everyone’s favourite American sweetheart Britney sporting the small plastic accessory pretty much everywhere, from red carpet appearances to sports events.

The undisputed queen of the sunglasses, Anastasia was rocking tinted shades in 2000. She may have experimented with different shapes, styles and sizes but it was always her small rose-tinted shades that were her most iconic look.

An unlikely style icon, Dwayne Johnson (AKA The Rock) embraced the California sunshine in a pair of edgy blue tinted glasses to compliment his casual knit jumper. Personally, we still love this look.
