Top Shades

 In Feature, Style

This season, be seen in bright and blatantly bold aviator shades.


Admit it, sometimes you just want to be the center of attention. Although you could interrupt someone else’s big moment in order to make certain all eyes are on you, there are easier, more polite ways to steal the spotlight. For spring, it’s as simple as sporting designers’ new flashy frames. With updated takes on the classic aviator shape, the trend is plastic versus metal rims, in colors once reserved for fashions worn by stylish hip-hoppers and hardcore preps. With every major brand incorporating the look into their latest collections, and stars from Miley Cyrus to Kanye West consistently working the statement shades, it’s safe to say that plastic aviators are the sunglasses of the year.
