When we first started noticing tiny sunglasses among street style crowds and Instagirl models, we figured it was just a sartorial experiment in quirky eyewear. But during this past Fall 2018 fashion month, the Adam Selman x Le Specs craze that spurred from last season had actually morphed into the tiniest, skinniest silhouette possible, calling to mind endless references to "The Matrix" and '90s nostalgia.

Plus, it looks like the accessory's slimmed-down structure is much more than just a short-lived trend, as retailers and designers are now offering their own takes on the small-but-stylish sunglasses trend. The variety is strong, too, with plenty of choices to suit anyone's aesthetic, from designer George Kerburia's super-futuristic shades to a vintage-inspired version with square-shaped frames by Urban Outfitters.

In the gallery below, browse 21 of our favorite skinny sunglasses — just in time for warmer, sunnier days ahead.
