Ray Ban celebrate 75 years in shades

Ray ban are an iconic brand and have a dedicated celebrity following. This year the Ray ban sunglasses brand celebrates 75 years in business, and over that time has seen many a change in style. But, that’s not to say that some of the most popular styles, like the Aviator, have been around since the beginning and to this day, remain the same style of frame (Top Gun was always a favourite film of mine to show off the Aviator!). Styles like the Wayfarer are a top pick of the likes of R-Patz and girlfriend Kristen Stewart, who don their favourite shades as they scoot through airports. Even without the odd unofficial celeb endorsement, Ray ban remain top of their game and a brand of choice for most consumers, including me (my wayfarers are my favourite pair, even though I own four different styles of Ray ban!). So to guide you through the Ray ban back catalogue, here are my top two styles if you are looking to make a purchase!


The Ray ban Aviator is as famous as Tom Cruise’s character in Tom Gun, but more than that, a favourite frame due to its inherent cool factor. Over the last few years, I have noticed an increasing popularity of the Aviator among guys, but ladies fear not, this is a unisex style and one which Victoria Beckham has known to flaunt over in LA. I like the gold rim style and at €103.95, they are a great investment.


Ray Ban Wayfarer

The latest addition to my sunglasses collection, the Ray Ban Wayfarer is comfortable and versatile and available in so many shades and sizes to suit every face. I always liked the classic black frame and not only are you getting style, you are getting protection for your eyes too, with polarised lenses available. My personal favourite (see above!)

All styles above are available from a great site Smart Buy Glasses!
