From a classic Kate Moss wayfarer, to Victoria Beckham’s noughties aviator days, Ray-Ban has long held the crown when it comes to sunglasses. Thinking of investing? We’ve got some good news – the brand’s just landed at Topshop. To celebrate its arrival we’re taking inspiration from the girls who wear Ray-Bans best.
Fun fact: Why are Ray-Bans called Ray-Bans? Because they ban the sun’s rays… Mind. Blown.
1. ROUND ROUND, BABY
Ever the bad girl’s go-to, round Ray-Bans look amazing when you take them full ’70s and team with shearling and a shaggy fringe like model Behati Prinsloo. You can get them with pink lenses too, which means you will literally be wearing rose-tinted glasses. Amazing.
2. THE ONLY WAY(FARER)
Worn by music legends like Debbie Harry and Madonna and in tonnes of famous films (think Patricia Arquette’s red pair in True Romance), wayfarers always bring a bit of classic rock ‘n’ roll to an outfit. Channel Kate Moss in her noughties heyday and wear with a tee and dishevelled hair, or keep it sleek and try them with a Taylor Swift-style red lip.
3. THE AVIATION SITUATION
Will aviators ever go out of style? We doubt it. Wear yours like ’70s band Runaways, with flares and seriously high platforms, or go for a polished California vibe like Kendall Jenner with a statement jumpsuit and ‘no make-up’ make-up.
