The Best Ways To Style Aviator Sunglasses

It should come as no shock aviators are one of the most popular sunglass styles out there. Trends come and go, but the aviator style has always remained prominent in the fashion world. While there are no rules as to who should and shouldn't wear aviators, they are more suited for round-, triangle-, and heart-shaped faces, according to Lensmart. Of course, you can wear them no matter your face shape, but people with those facial structures are the ideal candidate for rocking this style of sunglasses.

One of the best things about aviators is how versatile they are. Obviously, they're a must-have for a beach day, but you can also dress them up for a shopping trip with the girls, or keep them super casual when you're running errands. There is no right or wrong way to style them, but we do have six tips and tricks to give you a jumpstart.

Take inspo from the '60s

For a modern take on a 1960s classic, put on your favorite jumper and — depending on your mood — Mary Janes or platform boots, and finish off the look with your trusty aviators. To keep warm during the colder months, add a pair of solid-colored tights for a totally groovy vibe.

Give minimalism an upgrade

Athleisure got an upgrade in 2015 with the birth of functional fashion. This minimalistic aesthetic was practically designed with aviators in mind. If you're spending the majority of the day on your feet, we suggest chucking on a pair of sneakers. Otherwise, go bold by adding a pair of booties.

Show off your inner pilot

Here's your chance to go all out and embrace your inner Amelia Earhart. Complete your all-black 'fit with a sturdy pair of Chelsea or combat boots and a faux-leather aviator jacket. All that's left to do is put on your favorite pair of sunnies, and you're ready to fly around the world.

Big city chic

As we said, there isn't a vibe a good pair of aviators can't match. Grab everyone's attention during your morning commute with this big-city aesthetic. To create the look, you'll need your aviators (duh), a basic button-down, your favorite pair of pants — no jeans please — and a trench coat to finish it off.

Go glam or go home

If there's one rule when it comes to styling aviators, it's that there's no such thing as too much glam. In this case, the bigger the frames, the better; and don't be afraid to try out different patterns either. Solid frames are fine, but why not step outside your comfort zone and try something more bold and unique?

Keep it super casual

This look is for those days when you have to leave the house, but you'd rather be curled up on the couch. Adding a pair of aviator sunglasses to sweats instantly transforms the look from shabby to chic. You'll be surprised at what a difference they make in not just your appearance, but your confidence too.
