The Ray-Ban Aviator - can it survive in 2015?

Posted On 30 March 2015

Sunglasses trends are evolving quickly, with New York Fashion Week seeing daringly geometric frames and plenty of shades with exquisite detailing.

However, the cat eye shape, popular since retro’s wider comeback around 2012, is still in demand as are oversized round frames. Bright colours, too, are big in 2015.

So, what of the trusty aviator?

See this Top Ten round-up of 2015 eyewear trends from Top Teny for some great examples of sunglasses in vogue this year. If you look carefully, you’ll see the aviator style is back on the cat walk, with a full-on brow bar and in thick plastic.

So, the answer to our question it seems is yes, the aviator is holding its own despite the winds of fashion change. This classic style has the ability to suit most face shapes, and that’s why it will be around for a long time yet.

Here are our top three sunglasses on right now.

1. Ray-Ban Erika 4171 - £90

The Erika frame carries retro styling at the temples and nose bridge, and here comes in a bold purple. This shape is rapidly becoming a classic, seen in most on-trend eyewear outlets.



2. Kangol 6015 - £30

This frame is big, round and upswept in the style of a cat eye, hitting three of our 2015 trends.

3. The Ray-Ban Aviator - £90

We’ve picked out the slightly smaller aviator (5214) which, although it doesn’t suit longer faces as well as the larger aviators, is currently on trend. 



Ray-Ban Aviators are available on for the bargain price of £90.
