The end of summer is (sadly) here, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t channel some serious ’70s vibes well into the fall: Simply throw on a pair of aviator sunglasses. The style has been an accessories staple since appearing in films like “Top Gun,” but when worn with other utilitarian pieces like boiler suits and workman jackets, they appear fresh again.
If you thought that the style was limited to shades of army green, allow us to prove you wrong. Unlike the more round, wire sunglasses that have been all over Instagram this season, these frames make more of a statement. Options truly run the gamut: You can pick up a classic pair from Ray-Ban or go for something more oversized and modern from Moschino. Brands like DIFF Eyewear and Westward Leaning have put out versions in a wide range of colors. Plus, Miu Miu makes a pair with a playful reflective star pattern.
So, if you went to see “Once Upon A Time… in Hollywood” in theaters and walked out thinking, “Hey, how can I look like Brad Pitt all the time?” then browse our 23 favorite pairs of aviator sunglasses below.
