Mary-Kate Olsen in round-framed gradient sunglassesMary-Kate Olsen has been wearing plenty of John Lennon-esque round sunglasses, a sort-of sunlasses trend that hasn’t quite made it off the ground (and we’re still waiting to see whether it will take flight in 2009).

In this pair, she’s pretty much rolled three trends into one: the round shape, the thick plastic frames, and the gradient lens. This large round shape is closer to that of last-years trend however, rather than to the smaller 1970s-style glasses she’s worn previously.

Mary-Kate isn’t the first to take this look to the streets – the Chanel half-tint sunglasses have also been spotted various times on the likes of Nicole Richie (below).
