We're back on the fashion week street style grind! Kicking off with the Spring 2018 men's shows overseas — including London Fashion Week Men's, which wrapped on Monday — showgoers hit the ground running in their best summer outfits, as opposed to the winter-ready ensembles from the beginning of the year. And what we commonly saw among the fashion crowd was one of this season's "It" items: white-frame sunglasses. 

The accessory was first made famous by Kurt Cobain in the '90s, and recently revived by the likes of Harry Styles, Migos member Takeoff, Lil Yachty, Pharrell and Wiz Khalifa, as well as brands like Saint Laurent (by Hedi Slimane), Acne and Christian Roth, the original maker of Cobain's iconic shades. Usually these frames are paired with more casual looks (see the streetwear above), but we like to think they can add a bit of flair to any sort of outfit.
