|"Any of you boys seen a fashionista around here?"|
Your winter wardrobe has become repetitive and dull. Your winter boots need a coat of polish.
Your go-to A-line is more safe than spunky.
You've hit that mid-winter fashion crisis.
Never fear! Spring is on the way!
For some, it's about time to book those mid-winter vacations to someplace warm...and for others, its at least time to pretend you're beach-ready. While it's still a little early for the seasonal investment of high-lights in your tresses, here's a fashion staple that can take you to new heights as you wait for the temperature to rise: aviators.
Taking another cue from our dear Nina Garcia, the aviator-style is an "eternally and universally fashionable shade that instantly brings out that cool factor".
Available in a variety of shades and styles, Nina says that "the classic aviator is the Ray Ban". She suggests staying away from too much shine so save your money and shy away from overly reflective lenses and shiny rims.
The One Hundred even recommends that "the rims should be in a matte tone of silver or gold" if you want your shades to look authentic.
But don't just take it from us. Celebs have taken this accessory to new heights from films to street-wear. Here's are just some examples of this piece's rise to fame:
|"Keep it as close to the original design as possible. |
Michael Kors and Ralph lauren do it very well."-TOH
- Kate Hudson, Almost Famous

- Paul McCartney
- Tom Cruise, Top Gun
- Steve McQueen
- Lauren Hutton
- Brad Pitt, Fight Club
- Jim Morrison
- Ringo Starr
- Leonardo DiCaprio, The Aviator

Even if you're kicking around "in your oldest jeans or with your newest tailored YSL jacket", aviators will make you "look equally up-to-the-minute".
