Ray-Ban 'High Street Wayfarer' Sunglasses

Definition: Originally created by Ray-Ban, a high end manufacturer of sunglasses, wayfarer sunglasses were extremely popular in the '50s and '60s. They were popularized once again in the '80s, and have made yet another comeback in modern day fashion.

Typically made out of plastic, it is not unusual to find wayfarer sunglasses in bright colors and prints. This adds to the retro look of the style. However, wayfarer sunglasses can be found in neutral colors as well.

Wayfarer sunglasses are characterized by their pointed edges, round bottoms, and very subtle top arch. A trendy variation of wayfarer sunglasses are shades with rimless bottoms.

What Should I Wear With Wayferer Sunglasses?

This style of sunglasses is very much casual, so feel free to wear your favorite pair of jeans and comfiest tank top. To keep up the retro look, incorporate bright, neon colors into your outfit. You can even wear one with a leather jacket or black blazer for a unique '80s look.
