If you are in the market for an elevated level of cool, opt for Aviator glasses. They simply are on a totally different plane. Sure, they were originally the purview of airline pilots and high-flyers. But this gold-standard oversized face-covering frame became a classic outside the cabin in the 1970s and 80s, and is still a beloved shape today for the daring and discerning women and men, from Alexa Chung to Gucci's Alessandro Michele. In gold or silver metal, they gracefully wrap and highlight the face and eye. Choose black-rimmed or brown or tortoiseshell for a bolder look, and enjoy the view.
