Sometimes sunglasses are all about hiding. Whether it be from the sun or just hiding that awful sunglasses tan line you got at the beach, sunglasses help you cover it up. Ray-Ban’s motto is to “Never Hide”. Never hide from the sun, embarrassment, or FUN! Pretty great idea to me! This brand seems to target all audiences with sunglasses that seem almost timeless as the years have gone by.
Ray-Bans were first adopted by pilots in the US Army Air Force and soon became a popular brand of sunglasses. Specifically, the Ray-Ban Aviator style.
The Aviators can be spotted everywhere from famous to celebrities to the streets and the beach. Even movies like to use these awesome sunglasses. (see Maverick and Goose)
Ray-Ban is known for its durability. Buying a pair of these is well worth the price. Every pair blocks 100% UV radiation. You can also buy them with Polarized lenses for superb optical clarity and reduced glare. So these will protect your eyes and make you look amazing! Personally, I love the Wayfarers. These revolutionized the eyewear industry by changing from metal frames to plastic. This particular style is one of the most enduring fashion icons of the 20th century. The brand has inspired many design houses to create similar frame styles from Marc Jacobs to Juicy Couture. The Wayfarer style in particular seems to go with anything.
