Back in 1929, an Air Force colonel named John A. Macready worked with Bausch & Lomb to perfect a pair of sunglasses that would protect his pilots’ eyes from the intense blue and white skies they flew in. A few years later, Ray-Bans aviators were born, kicking off the company’s road to success.
But then in 1952, the Wayfarer became even more wildly popular than Ray-Ban’s aviators. With a design inspired by Eames chairs and Cadillac tail fins, the Wayfarers were an instant hit—and they’re just as cool today as ever before. You should definitely check out their new colorblock series, offering six big contrasting color schemes and excellent polarization to boot. They’re absolutely perfect for days at the beach, but you can dress them up with any bright summer outfit as well.
