Remember how reflectors and mirrored glasses took over the style realm with a bang? Well, seems like the trend has taken a massive U-turn. Never mind if you have prescription glasses, or you wear them just to amp the style quotient — the clear, minimal lens is here to stay.

I can see clearly now:
Remember Zeenat Aman in Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971)? Her look was a testament to the fact that a freewheeling spirit also requires some unfettered style. Call it retro inspiration or a pull towards normcore — going back to basic is what the fashion forward are doing. Back in March, Delhi runway also saw the minimalist accessory trend at the fashion week, while Hollywood insta-accounts kept the inspiration going. From fashion influencers Alexa Chung and Nicole Warne to model Hailey Baldwin, it’s clear that everyday chic is here to stay.

Trust Malaika Arora Khan to know what’s all in the spotlight when it comes to fashion and style. While her Instagram continues to give us all the feels, our shutterbugs also manage to capture her around town — from making the airport her personal red carpet to looking like a dream while heading to Yoga. And, of course, one can’t miss her metallic-rimmed oversized clear lenses. Prescription or not, there’s no denying she looks good! Actor Gauahar Khan’s not behind — check out her Lennon glasses with a clear lens twist.
