Ray Ban Aviators








































Despite my ever growing sunglasses collection, there's one style that I always turn to and that is the classic aviator. It's a style that has this inherent coolness factor that's unmatched by anything else on the market. When it comes to aviators no brand is more iconic and synonymous with the name than Ray Bans.

Since it's first debut back in 1936 (thank you Wikipedia) not much has changed over the years. The classic tear drop shape is still unaltered, the lens has the same slight convex shape to eliminate glare from all angles and the famous thin wire frames are still bendy enough for you to salvage them if (or when in my instance) your toddler decides to sit on your glasses.

There's so much to love right? But the true bee's knees is that these sunnies were once designed with only pragmatism in mind and have since turned into absolute style icons. Now 80 years later and we're all still wearing them like it's nobody's business.

I can see why you want those bad boys in your collection. Nothing beats a great design which Ray Ban has proven.

A couple of months ago my aviators fell out of the stroller and I ran over them :( i got club masters to replace them but they just aren't the same!

I can't get enough of Ray Bans, period! They're definitely my favorite sunglass brand, and I own a few versions of the wayfares, aviators and clubmasters. To my credit, I've never lost an expensive pair of sunglasses–only my cheap ones!

Aviators are kind of the ultimate classic trend. But they look horrible on me! Depressing, right?

I love the classic aviators too. Amazingly, I don't have a pair, but my husband does (I bought it for him). I've been wanting to steal it but of course, neither of us have any idea where he put it. :)

I definitely have to agree with you, Jenee! I wear my aviators a lot (although now I wear my own Kawaii Kitsch sunglasses more! ;)

One can never go wrong with aviators. Wayfarer is my fave. But I always keep my aviators handy.

They look great. I don't own a pair and can't really visualise myself wearing them but certainly a sunnies classic that's here to stay.
