When it comes to investing in a new pair of shades, no brand is more iconic than Ray-Ban. Having been around since the 1930s, it has been the celeb sunglasses go-to for decades. From the likes of Marilyn Monroe to modern day style icons such as Gigi Hadid, Ray-Bans are the obvious choice for every stylish lady and this summer, the collection is better than ever. Now all you have to do is decide which Ray-Ban gang you’re going to be in.
The Aviators Girls:
A serious supermodel favourite, Ray-Ban’s classic aviator style has been championed by the likes of Candice Swanepoel and Gigi Hadid. Both opting for super bright and refelective colours, Ray-Ban also do the style in much more demure shades (and as you’ll see above, Candice has a pair in black too). It’s a uniform for the supermodel statement-makers and is a shape that cools up pretty much any outfit. Make it work with a modern twist by picking a fluro lens like these two lovely ladies.
The Wayfarers Women:
Timeless, elegant and a style which you know will never date, Kate Upton and Taylor Swift make a serious case for the Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Undoubtedly the most classic shape of them all, these are your go-to staple sunnies which go with absolutely any outfit, just ask T Swift, who always has a pair of these on.
The Clubmasters Club:
Somewhere between the Aviators and the Wayfarers, the Clubmasters are the retro gals’ choice of shade. As demonstrated by Behati and Beyonce, these Ray-Bans are for the coolest kids on the block – whether you’re going for fluro lenses and coloured frames or keeping it super simple with a more classic combo, you know you’ll be looking chic in these shades.
