Are Classic Glasses Styles Or Modern Trendsetters In For Summer?

Keeping up to date with eyewear trends can be tricky. With so many combinations of colours, shapes, and materials on offer, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed! Luckily, we’re here to help you navigate. We’ve put together our ultimate guide to 4 classic Ray-Ban glasses styles that will never go out of fashion. Allow us to be your guide…

The Classic Rectangular or Wayfarer Shape

The Wayfarer is one of Ray-Ban’s best-known styles, with its iconic shape, oval metal detail, and logo on both temples. This thick angular frame’s popularity returned in full force in the 1980s and 2000s and shows no signs of fading.

The Browline or Clubmaster Shape

As the name suggests, this classic half rim style is characterised by a black acetate section that hugs the eyebrows, so the lenses appear to float below. First created in 1947, the Clubmaster has a vintage feel and is popular with celebrities the world over.

The Round Shape

Another style with a strong vintage aesthetic, the Round collection includes a range of designs with face-softening circular lenses. Inspired by the 1960s counterculture (think John Lennon), round frames are the one to choose if you’re going for the quirky, retro vibes.

The Aviator Shape

The Aviator was designed for American pilots in the 1930s – so it’s no wonder that it oozes cool. The lenses taper inwards from a wide outer edge to a narrower centre, secured with a sleek double metal bridge for that perfect, tear drop shape that we know and love. Style-wise, they’re timeless and eternal.
