Get a fresh perspective with these sophisticated aviator-style sunglasses

Timeless, versatile and flattering, aviator sunglasses never go out of style. The classic frame shape was originally developed in 1936 to protect the eyes of military pilots while flying, and since then has been a staple in the accessories repertoire of many.

While the lens tint and frame material changes depending on the particular brand’s interpretation, the essence of the aviator still remains the same. Here, we share a few we have been coveting.
