The round shape was popular in the 60's early 70's and evolved into an oversized oval. Although there hasn't been too much variation over time, this frame will never go out of style!
In the 90's, the late grunge rocker Kurt Cobain of the then popular band Nirvana, made these shades rock and and shortly thereafter, everyone was else was too!
White is a universal color for all seasons these days so you can throw away the notions of the past that you're not supposed to wear this bare hue beyond Labor Day and after all, if the 'It Girl's' Nicole, Drew & Paris give these pale shades a thumbs up then you know you're all good to go!
