Sure, everyone loves to stay in vogue, but sometimes, the trendiest styles also happen to be the most timeless.
Classic sunglasses, from aviators to wayfarers to cat-eye frames, are built to last, meaning they’ll keep shielding your eyes from the sun’s rays—in style—for years to come. They’re not just sunglasses: they’re investment pieces.
Wayfarers are the definition of classic sunglasses. The original Ray-Ban Polarized Wayfarer Sunglasses may have spawned a million imitators, but none can compete with the real thing.
They work on absolutely every face type, and add a level of effortless cool to any ensemble. What’s not to love?
This pair of Kate Spade New York Deandra Cat-Eye Sunglasses is a perfect example of the style. Seemingly retro and modern at the same time, the luscious shade of subtle green coordinates perfectly with all outfits.
Originally designed for US fighter pilots, the Ray-Ban Original Aviator Polarized Sunglasses always look straight off the runway, whether it’s the 1930s or the 2030s.
Aviators are a timeless look, and the gold frames add an air of sophistication. Pair them with a T-shirt and jeans for the perfect weekend look.
Round, oversize plastic sunglasses hearken back to the mod ’60s (think Jackie O). This pair of Valentino Round Plastic Sunglasses simply and elegantly recreate the style of classic sunglasses of the 20th century, but the gradient lenses firmly root them in the 21st. They’re the perfect middle point between the past and the present, and can complement your style no matter what you’re wearing.
This pair of brown tortoise Oliver Peoples Executive I Half-Rim Sunglasses is a replica of one of the brand’s vintage signature wire-rim designs, but updated in high-quality titanium. The modern material makes this pair virtually unbreakable—so the classic style will stand the test of time.
