Aviator sunglasses are a classic style. Buy them and you will have them for years to come and they will never look dated. Therefore, it isn’t too surprising that the classic style is also being created without the tinted lenses so glasses wearers can rock them all of the time.

The beauty of aviator eyeglasses is that they’re timeless but they also give you that geek chic look that is all over the Gucci runways. They’re also easier to pull off than some glasses trends like completely round frames or heavily embellished ones.

These are your classic aviator frames that you will wear again and again. The satin gunmetal color will flatter a number of skin tones. Plus, it won’t clash with you makeup. The slightly squared-off edges on the frames give them a bit of edge.

Gold and silver aren’t you only options. Give brown a go. The large shape has that quirky cool vibe but it will still be flattering on smaller faces.

There isn’t only one “aviator look.” These budget-friendly frames offer a rounder option. However, they still keep things classic with the high-set bridge nose piece for a clear aviator finish.
