PROPELLED TO STARDOM

f it seems that aviator-style
glasses are everywhere, they
are. This hugely popular style
has seldom lost favor and seems
to be riding higher than ever.
These iconic frames, which were
originally developed in 1936
by Bausch & Lomb for pilots
to protect their eyes, feature a
large teardrop face and smooth,
rounded corners. This shape
best suits oblong faces that
appear taller than they are wide,
as well as those with V- or heartshaped faces. The lenses help
direct attention downwards and
out, towards the lower corners
of the frame, which work well for
faces that appear wider in the
upper half than in the lower half.

E

yeglasses can help people
see the real you, or they can
help create the image you want.
The key is to find the right frames
to match your face shape as well
as your personality and lifestyle.

surface and strong wrap,
aviators can create problems for
strong prescriptions.
