We first suspected something was up when Rihanna rocked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last month in vintage Chanel circle-shaped shades, and now Miley Cyrus confirms it: round sunglasses are officially experiencing a resurgence, people! Sure, we’re all for square, oversized, and classic aviators, but Miley’s old-school Versace sunnies that she posted last night have single-handedly convinced us to invest in our own John Lennon-inspired frames. The singer tweeted, “80s Versace” #obsession” and she’s definitely not the only one in love with the retro accessories. But while Miley’s limited-edition version might be a little hard to score ourselves (trust us, we’ve tried!), there are PLENTY of near-identical versions out there if you’re craving some instant gratification.
Taking cues from Rihanna’s pearl-encrusted Chanels, Urban Outfitters has stocked rhinestone-trimmed “Disco” sunglasses, which you can get for $18. Don’t want to go THAT far quite yet? Consider these $16 “Fine Line” sunnies your baby steps into full flung Ri Ri-dom. We’re also digging this gold metal version from ASOS, which, at a mere $26, is an easy way to get a Miley-esque result without splurging. Lastly, these “Lennon” sunglasses from ’80s Purple are so cute, we’re already tempted to stock up on backup pairs when we inevitably sit on them or leave them in a cab. They might lack Miley’s gorgeous gold Versace hardware, but hey— at just $12 each, we’re cool with that.
