Classic styles of sunglasses never seem to go out of fashion. An example of this is the aviator style which is as popular now as when originally launched in 1937. Of course whilst the original aviators are still frequently seen on the most fashionable of celebrities, during 2008 we have seen the styles slightly more revamped to create a modern edge. Favoured amongst celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Biel and Kate Moss the classic aviators come in array of enhanced styles including a more retro look, and with the oh-so-now plastic or embellished frames.
Of course, we all know that aviators are super trendy but they were originally created to serve a specific and functional purpose. First designed by Ray-Ban in 1937, aviators were primarily worn by U.S. air force pilots for eye protection. The size and shape of the lens prevents as much light as possible from entering the eye and reduces glare. Despite their significant functional use, the style quickly became popular as a fashion accessory and transcended onto the big screen with Hollywood stars regularly featured sporting them. Originally designed for men, aviators are now equally as popular with women making them a versatile and timeless style.
Aviators are a good style choice as they will never look out of place and can be worn with any outfit. In fact, classic styles are often commended and considered more fashionable than faddy styles which you wouldn’t be seen dead in next season! Therefore they make for a great investment and in addition are of a superb quality due to their durability. They are also fantastic for women as the style is versatile and will inject an edgier look to a feminine outfit. Aviators certainly make for an effective yet subtle fashion statement.
