Aviator shades are a total classic and they look great on just about everybody. They’re ideal for festivals because they are easily styled with just about any festival outfit, they’re superb for holidays because they’re so versatile for any destination, and they’re awesome for driving because they provide great coverage for your eyes.
They suit most face shapes (especially round, square or angular face shapes) and there are so many styles and colours to suit your skin tone. So if you’re looking for the perfect pair of go-to sunnies for everyday wear, aviators make an excellent style choice.
What began as essential eyewear for pilots in the First World War and followed as a luxury style trend for men in the 1930s, soon became a classic look for women too. And today, this look has become completely iconic and totally timeless for girls from all walks of life.
If you’re a fan of the aviator style, here are some awesome aviators for women in 2016. Introducing four fab aviator styles to try!
1) Classic Metal Frame Aviators
You can’t beat the classic look when it comes to aviator sunglasses. And whether you opt for a classic pair of Ray Bans or go for a budget pair of aviator shades (like our SS Collection frames), your look will be totally iconic!
Simple full rim metal frames have both retro appeal and an up-to-date modern look and the flair is all in your choice of frame finish and lens colour. Choosing from mirror lenses and photochromatic lenses to plain gradient lenses can totally change up your finished look.
For a high end and classic option, choose something like the Ray-Ban RB3025 Aviator Large Metal Flash Lenses (above), or for a cheap and cheerful version, go for the The SS Collection S2242 Sunglasses (below).
2) Round Aviators
This is the hottest look of the moment! It seems like anyone who’s anyone is wearing a pair of round aviators. Do like models Gigi Hadid and Jourdan Dunn or hot singing sensations such as Rihanna and Selena Gomez and grab yourself a pair of sexy round ave’s this season, like the Prada PS 54RS sunglasses (above), available in 9 different colours.
Or the Ray-Ban RB3536 sunglasses, available in 5 different colours (below).
3) Retro Style Aviators
If you love the oversized sunglasses look, retro aviators are a great shout for your summer wardrobe. Full rim plastic, funky colours and large lenses define the retro aviator look and have a fabulous sixties / seventies vibe which will look fantastic for festivals or holidays.
This look is all about standing out from the crowd; blending in is not an option! If you love retro fashion, we dare you to go bold with these fabulous frames from Bobbi Brown. Get the look now with the Bobbi Brown THE JAKE sunglasses (above) and choose from 3 chic colourways.
4) One Piece Lens Aviators
Another awesome style for SS16 is the one piece lens. This visor style aviator is tres sports luxe darling and it brings the classic aviator frame style to a whole new level of H.O.T! The nose bridge and bar merge into one as the lens flows across the frame with fluidity. The finished look is bold, sporty and kinda retro too. If you love a one piece, check out one of our favourites, the Versace VE2166 shades for women.
And it will probably come as no surprise that Ra- Ban got there first with their own one piece lens design, the Ray-Ban RB8057 unisex sunglasses, available in 8 different colours!
