Cool Aviator Sunglasses for Men and Women
Few sunglasses styles are quite as timelessly authoritative as the aviator. These classic shades get their name because they were originally developed to protect pilots’ eyes while flying. The original style was created to be lighter, thinner, and better-looking than typical flight goggles of the past—think the bulky, old-fashioned goggles worn by Amelia Earhart—they were an instant hit in the flying community. Aviator shades have a recognizable shape featuring two oversized, rounded lenses and are usually complemented by metal hardware and a brow bar for some extra style. You can’t beat the cool factor brought by a pair of aviators!
