Ray Bans Redux
Just take those old Ray Bans off the Shelfâ€¦Iâ€™ll sit and wear them by myselfâ€¦
OK, enough of that old time rock ‘n roll, and reminiscing about Tom Cruise shakinâ€™ his moneymaker in his undies. Those old standard Ray Bans of the Eighties are back and itâ€™s not just American celebs that are sporting them.
Many serious fashionistas (i.e. international magazine editors and buyers) in Europe were seen sporting the Ray Ban Red Wayfarer style.
On the streets, chic Europeans were donning every other style of Ray Bans, including eyeglass frames. I saw lots of Ray Bans aviator styles worn on both girls and guys. I even spotted an older gentleman in a suit and white Ray Ban eyeglass frames pulling off the look as only an Italian can.
Italians in particular are fans of the iconic brand. When compared to other luxe sunglasses brands such as Gucci or Dior, Ray Bans come at a better price point.
The reasonable price and classic, yet modern, styling contributes to their popularity. Classic styles can stand the test of time and are worth the extra investment that these require, as opposed to just picking up a pair at the drugstore.
If you are planning a trip, remember you will be on the streets a lot and good sunglasses can be a great accessory. Plus the right pair can add instant glam, who doesnâ€™t love that?
Now, Iâ€™ve got to find and dust off my old Wayfarers. I love how classics never go out of style!
Just a few more styles of Ray Bans. Amazon.com has a great selection.
