We all know that pair of well-fitting glasses can take your look from basic to bold. Recently we’ve seen the rise of a particular type of narrow silhouette made popular by Balenciaga. The brand debuted sunnies inspired by the cult-classic movie The Matrix, which instantly became the talk of February’s Paris Fashion Week.

All summer, we watched the trend take off with fashion darlings like Rihanna and Gigi Hadid sporting the sleek glasses. These ladies paired the eyewear with athleisure pieces, streetwear, and even ball gowns adding a bit of edginess to their look

For the fall season, we’ve chosen six pairs of glasses that’ll add an instant boost to your profile. Read on to check out our favorite picks.
