The legendary aviator shades were created in the 1930's and designed mainly for World War II pilots. They needed proper eye protection from the sunlight and glare, whilst providing better vision amid the debris and smoke from the war zones.
Fast forward to the late 80's when superstars Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer sport the iconic shades in the movie Top Gun. The sales in aviator's sunglasses skyrocketed and stayed on mainstream and celebrity fashion since.
The aviator's shades have also captured the sports world. Many famous athletes have worn them for protection from sunlight, but also as accessories and part of their outdoor getup. Many skiers have shown their love for the aviator sunglass and it truly fits their sport and winter attire altogether.
Perhaps it is the effortless way to look cool that makes aviator sunglasses relentlessly popular even today. A simple getup of t-shirt and jeans immediately looks cool when matched with aviator designer sunglasses.
