There’s no denying 2017 is the year for fashion flashbacks. We’ve seen nods to ‘90s nostalgia with the revival of sports lifestyle labels, and retro ‘80s ruffles on everything from sleeves to shoes. But one trend we didn’t expect to love so much is the comeback of tinted shades from the ‘70s.

You know the kind, a little bit sleazy, typically in the silhouette of the timeless aviator, with light-coloured lenses that are on the low-end of the scale when it comes to glare protection. To be honest, they’ve never really disappeared - golden gradients have always been huge, plus who could forget the rainbow of colours seen on celebrity eyewear icons like Sir Elton John, Robert Downey Jr, Johnny Depp, and dare we say, Ali G?

Before you get deterred by Sacha Baron Cohen’s satirical take on the trend, here are our favourite tinted sunglasses you won’t want to take off - ever.
