Everything ’90s is new again. Having grown up in the decade, I feel like any time I see a “new” trend it reminds me of my childhood. One ’90s accessory trend that has made a major comeback is sunglasses chains. I don’t remember wearing them as a kid but I certainly remember my mother wearing them when I was younger.
I’m actually thrilled this ’90s trend has made a comeback. It’s chic and functional. Let’s start with function: with sunglasses chains you always have your sunnies at easy access. I usually put my sunglasses on my shirt when I’m not wearing them. But sometimes it tugs at my shirt. So I like being able to wear them around neck.
And on to fashion: sunglasses chains double as jewelry! When you have your sunnies on you don’t need statement earrings with pearl or crystals dripping along your face. Luckily they’re not a fortune either. I rounded up chic sunglasses chain options under $50 below…

I paired my pearl sunglasses chain with white sunnies. The cat eye shape has such a retro vibe so I thought back to some of my favorite old black and white fashion photographs and did a black and white summer look. This black jumpsuit is super lighteweight and I love the stitched details at the neckline. I’ve worn it before with all black but I liked how the all white accessories gave it more a ’50s vibe. I guess I really have been inspired by past decades!
