It got the Kardashian seal of approval.

Did you buy it?

Fashion often takes inspiration from movies (can one ever wear a brown polka dot and not think of Julia Roberts) but instead of dressing like an extra from Pretty Woman, we were dressing like Neo from the Matrix. Yep, really. 

2018 fashion was all about the 90s. We wore cycling shorts as trousers, we took a loan of our Dad's runners and somehow made bum bags, fashion. But the one the trend everyone lost their minds for were the skinny cat eye sunglasses.

ASOS revealed that over 20,000 of us added a pair of matrix glasses to our basket while we were shopping on the site.

Why did they get so popular, you ask? because Kanye said they were cool. Seriously.

On an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that aired last year, Kim was giving her sister Kourtney and BFF Johnathan some fashion advice. Kanye emailed Kim to declare that big sunnies just aren't cool anymore. The email read:

"You cannot wear big glasses anymore. It's all about tiny little glasses."

Kim then showed her phone to Johnathan which showed all the pictures Kanye had sent. 

"He sent me like, millions of '90s photos with tiny little glasses."

And just like that, everyone rushed out to buy a pair. According to Refinery29, ASOS sold 10,000 pairs in January alone. 

Tiny sunglasses are so trendy that Beyoncé wore a pair to her own vow renewal.

We're still waiting for Kanye's to declare what he thinks will be hot for 2019 so until then, we're going to continue rocking our teeny-tiny shades.
