Style Trend- Aviator Sunglasses

Can I just say I am obsessed with this trend? I have about 6 pairs or more in different colours.

Aviator sunglasses are a style of sunglasses that were developed by Bausch & Lomb and branded as Ray-Ban. They are characterised by dark, often reflective lenses having an area two or three times the area of the eyeball, and very thin metal frames with double or triple bridge and bayonet earpieces or flexible cable temples that hook behind the ears.

Aviator sunglasses, or "pilot's glasses", were originally developed in 1936 by Ray-Ban for pilots to protect their eyes while flying. Aviators were given their name due to their original intention of protecting aviator's eyes. Ray-Ban began selling the glasses to the public a year after they were developed.

 I have a pair of these also.

They fit most, if not all, face shapes & many celebrities wear them.

Tom Cruise made the sunglasses popular in the 1980s in his movie "Maverick".

Lots of designers have a pair in their collections. The Kardashians recently debuted their own line of gold plated aviator sunglasses.

They come in many different colours too.
