The Aviator style is undeniably one of the most popular styles of frames.
That is why most popular brands have tried to copy the look, which has resulted in a huge variety of Aviator glasses.
Of course, the most iconic is the original design from Ray-Ban.
In addition, many other well-known brands have chosen to ‘adopt’ the style and create their own variants.
Behind the Style
RayBan originally introduced Aviators back in the 1930s.
At that point in time, the brand was targeting fighter pilots who needed the absolute best glasses.
This “absolute best” happened to be Aviators, which became a huge success in the US Air Force.
The American pilots were delighted to wear their glasses because of the quality, which of course has only continued to improve over the years.
Since then, the style has evolved to be mainstream, which is why you find a myriad of different variants of Aviator glasses today.
Despite being on the market for many years, Aviators are still one of the most stylish designs for glasses and sunglasses.
Why Should You Invest in Aviators?
Aviator glasses are characterized by a thin metal frame and round, almost teardrop shaped glasses.
This makes the glasses look very sophisticated and is therefore perfect for those who want to express their style in a confident way.
There are so many different variants of the Aviator style.
Some are quite simplistic and classic, while others experiment more with the colour of both frame and lenses.
However much they differ, Aviators remain the ultimate accessory.
RayBan guarantees a high quality of material when manufacturing their Aviators, but other well-known brands can be just as good.
