Next to bags and shoes, sunglasses are the most essential fashion staples in any fashionista’s wardrobe. Apart from their benefits of protecting the eyes from sun and UV rays and keeping the dust at bay, these are among the most trendy items to go for. You can not complete your outdoor day look unless you don a pair of statement sunglasses. Sometimes, they help you hide your beauty ailments such as that annoying pimple day or the dry winter face.
Whatever be the reason, the sunglasses and eye wears have become an integral part of our lives now. I can never think of stepping out without my aviators or sunglasses as the mood goes. I am a great fan of eye wears, for which I was motivated to do a research on the best selling designs of all time.
So here is what I have gathered. Do have a look at 6 all time trending sunglasses!
1. The timeless Ray Ban Aviators
I still remember my infatuation days and I am sure the moment anyone combines a pair of aviators with bike, you quickly get reminded of a young handsome Tom Cruise from his ‘Top Gun’ days and not to mention the sizzling the soundtrack! This pilot fashion has been one of the most trending unisex elements of all time.
While Tom Cruise have already popularized it in his movies, Top Gun and Mission Impossible series, back in India years later Shahrukh Khan looked equally stunning in his last year’s release Jab Tak Hai Jaan, where he played the character of an army officer. While these eye accessories are men’s fashion staples, women have a wide choice to enhance their look. But nothing looks as classy and cool as a pair of golden Ray Ban aviators.
