Timeless Shapes & Styles for Men and Women
There are certain styles of eyewear that seem to transcend time and trends, remaining popular year-in and year-out. When deciding on a gift, consider the following:
- CLASSIC AVIATOR glasses came on the scene in the 1930s when they were mainly made for pilots. Designed to optimize peripheral view protection, they feature thin wire frames, large dark lenses, and a double bridge. Originally developed by Ray-Ban, many manufacturers now make these classily-shaped sunglasses. View Aviator Choices in Our Online Store
- Geometric, trapezoid-shaped frames and thick rims, such as those made popular with the WAYFARER style, originated in the 1950s with Ray-Ban. Often touted as the bestselling design of all time, this iconic style was initially popular in the 1950s and 1960s and has made a comeback in recent years after being worn by celebrities such as Tom Cruise and James Franco.

- CAT EYE glasses originally became popular in the 1950s, primarily as a new look in eyeglass styles for women. Eventually, they became very popular as sunglasses, too, after they were worn by Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, and Elizabeth Taylor. Initially, cat eye frames and wayfarers were quite similar, but wayfarers grew to be more squarish and “masculine” while cat eyes retained their feline, more feminine look. Present-day celebs such as Jessica Alba and Katy Perry have made them popular choices once again.
