These type of glasses were strictly associated with pilots, but are now quite popular. How could they not when they fit nearly any face and turn heads everywhere. Perhaps again, it could be their association to pilots, since everyone wants to feel like a bird, at liberty of roaming the sky. Still, their surge is down to many factors, like today’s top celebrities and trendsetters sporting them regularly. Aviator glasses give off an aura of coolness and are a popular unisex shape.
Aviator eyeglasses balance faces with wider foreheads and angular features. This characteristic makes them ideal for those with square and heart-shaped faces. Most aviator frames are made of metal and feature a double bridge construction. The latter design adds to the frame’s durability and strength. Additionally, they are suitable as sunglasses or for prescription. Their popularity has seen many interpretations of the design from the classic contours, to round or rectangular offshoots.
