Another day, another homage to the early 2000s — and we’re not complaining. It’s time to head to the store (or your storage boxes from 2008) and find the biggest pair of face-spanning shield sunglasses to sport this season. According to Teen Vogue, shield sunglasses are back, and there’s no better time than the present to bust them back out.

You may remember this noughties trend — we often saw stars from Paris Hilton to Britney Spears sporting these chic wrap-around shield frames with bug-eye lenses.
