The precise release date of this Destiny’s Child cover was October 30, 2001- that’s just three years shy of a full two decades. Feeling old much?
Many of us can agree that the noughties was a decade responsible for some of the most interesting fashion trends, some that were only good for the early millennium and others that we’re glad to see the return of.
Coachella is now a distant memory, specifically for those of us who only witnessed snippets of it on our phones. However, the two week US music fest can safely be considered a non-official trend guide for the remainder of 2018 and the seasons to follow.
Of all the things that fought for my attention (while I wallowed in FOMO), it was chiefly athletic eyewear that did the most to capture it and according to Michelle Williams (extreme right in the image above) and Coachella street stylers, sporting ski goggles off the slopes back in 2001 and now in 2018 is quite a thing.
It’s the multi-coloured and oversized type that seemed to receive the most attention on the Gram, but even the clear protective gear kind are having their moment too.
Then, of course there’s mama Kim Kardashian, and if and when she’s into something, it’s only a matter of time before a large portion of her 100 million plus Insta followers follow suit.
Although Fenty x Puma appears to have ditched the slopes and opted for dunes, athletic eyewear was never left out of the package. So, if you’re looking to make your mark this year on the fashion front that is, turn to protective eyewear for indoor and outdoor activities for the best results.
Here are more trendy athletic specs we found on Instagram:

Definitely a conversation starter! #DiorSS18 © @PatrickDemarchelier
