Everyone knows that ugly is cool these days. Whether it’s chunky dad sneakers or Hawaiian shirts, all the cool girl trends for summer seem to originate from something that has been deemed “ugly” in the past. There are even style bloggers dedicated to turning garish accessories into something highly desired.
And now we’ve got the ugliest–and by that, we mean coolest–sunglass trend of summer:
Oakley’s just dropped their new Flight Jacket and Field Jacket sunglasses, which are so gaudy and ridiculous, you’re probably going to see them on every It girl from Kendall Jenner to Gigi Hadid.
The brand is even touting them as “ugly,” see this sponsored High Snobiety story, which gives them glory for such a classification. The headline reads, “These Are the Chunky Sneakers of Eyewear & They’re Gonna Be Huge,” likening them to the aforementioned chunky sneaker trend (which is huge).
The performance shades feature the latest innovations, such as fog-fighting airflow technology and Prizm lenses that enhance colors and visual details. Trippy!
UPDATE: Gigi Hadid just rocked a similar pair of shades while on vacation in Greece. See, we told you it was *happening*.
