Build Your ‘90s Retro Eyewear Style


Build Your ‘90s Retro Eyewear Style

The 90’s were all about edgy grunge, and stylish specs and shades definitely played into the era’s aesthetic. For a throwback look that's still modern, find your Quays and channel the nostalgia. Here are our fave 90’s sunglasses for doing just that, in style.

Rimless Sunglasses

In the 90’s, it was “in” to ditch the frame altogether—at least the rims anyway. Get nostalgic for the oldie but goodie rimless style. These lightweight sunnies will attract attention no matter the occasion. They balance strong jawlines and wide faces while complementing softer features. And with rimless sunnies, there’s no need to worry if your rim matches your OOTD: these go with everything. 

  • JEZABELL RIMLESS: JEZABELL is our #1 round style. If you want to switch up your look, pop on JEZABELL RIMLESS. It’s one of our go-to scaled-down looks, featuring a sleek rimless style and classic details like our signature triangle notches and adjustable nosepads. They're perfect for glamming up the city look or looking effortlessly fly on beach days.

  • TTYL RIMLESS: There’s TTYL RIMLESS on how you can wear rimless picks. Along with those rimless vintage vibes, TTYL RIMLESS also features an edgy flair with its sculpted details and luxe chain-link arms. No matter if you’re going out with your crew or heading to your getaway vacay, these specs will give a dose of drip. Find your faves, whether you werk a sleek classic black or want to glam it up with purple to orange lenses.

Rectangle Sunglasses 

Small rectangle frames are quintessentially 90’s retro eyewear, but you’ve probably seen them on your Instagram feed lately. They’re one of the most versatile sunnies you can pick up, and these timeless fits also look great in pops of bold color. 

  • KARMA: Looking for a 90’s classic? You’re in luxe with KARMA from Quay’s Luxe Collection. These semi-rimless sunnies feature premium features to amp up your look, coming with waterfall edges, metal accents, and cut-out temples. 

  • YADA YADA: Kick off retro style with a little YADA YADA. The thick, reinforced temples and timeless frame colors on these will turn heads your way. They’re sleek and easy go-to’s, whether you have them on for weekend brunches or poolside afternoons.


Back in the day, athletes weren't the only ones flexing sport frames--you'd also see actors and musicians in shields. They’re great for making a bold statement, which is what we're all about. When it comes to sporty sunnies, don’t forget big bold oval sunnies for the ultimate throwback look, either. 

  • HINDSIGHT: Keep good vibes in HINDSIGHT with sporty shields. These universally flattering shields feature a bold brow bar and one-piece lens to block the sun and all the haters. In addition to classic black and smoke black, these also come in faded lenses for a two-toned look, so you can live it up in pink, green, and purple to orange fades, too. 

  • VIBE CHECK: Just at the cusp of Y2K, you’d see people out and about stunting with their oval sunnies. Everything about these is low-key yet effortlessly chic for that sporty look: serve late 90's style with premium injection frames, thick temples, and gold deets.
