Looks like fashion brought back yet another trend from the past. Dad’s footwear, 90s hair clips and bucket hats are just the tip of the iceberg. Now, the fashion industry has found inspiration not from your father’s closet but among your grandmother’s necessities: eyewear chains.


A specific eyewear style that is often associated among the elderly has now become a hit among celebrities and models alike. We know, it’s hard to not overlook it as your grandmother’s eyewear, but fashion icons Rihanna and Gigi Hadid seemingly made it work courtesy of fashion giants such as Chanel.
These may be ornamental but still very much handy, unlike your average necklace or bangles. They keep your sunglasses from getting lost, and instead of tucking them in your hair or shirt, just hang them on your neck. We’re pretty much convinced at this stage.

If you still think that this is still granny fashion, these eyewear chains will change your mind. Here are some modern-day ones that we feel even your granny would approve.
