It may seem strange to admit to being obsessed with “ugly” tendencies, but alas, it’s me. I think I chalk it up to my immortal love for a good shock factor somewhere in my outfit. Be it a cow print boot, feather-embellished sleeve or completely transparent pants (yes, I went there), I always add something to spice things up. “Ugly” tendencies is a no-brainer when it comes to my craving, and this year happens to be a sporty trend. Sportswear of all kinds dominated S / S 21 runways including track pants, hoodies and the star of the day, sporty sunglasses.
Sunglasses that look like they could either be Oakleys or picked up at your local gas station are oddly enough the accessory trend to be seen this spring. Colors in your face, aerodynamic shapes and transparent lenses are taking over your Instagram feeds, so if you’re in the mood to join the latest “ugly” craze, I can’t back this one up enough. While Bottega Veneta reappeared this shocking trend last season, Marine Serre, Balenciaga and Sportmax showed that 2021 is the year of the sporty sunny and we are so here for it.
Below you can take a look at some of my favorite sporty sunglasses moments on the runway and shop the pairs you need to get a look.
