The Enduring Popularity of Sunglasses

As the popularity of sunglasses as we know them has grown in the US since their conception in 1936, more and more name brands are on the market by top fashion designers. Sunglasses come in different shapes, sizes, colors and frames. It is difficult to choose sometimes. But the numbers don't lie. The most popular designer glasses are stylish, comfortable and look good on the wearer. Trends follow in sunglasses just like they do in fashion. Popular designers are Prada, Gucci, Revo, Ralph Lauren, Dior, Kate Spade, Ray-ban, Versace, Vogue, and the list goes on and on. The most popular selling sunglasses though are Gucci. A man named Guccio Gucci started the Gucci brand in 1920. Famous celebrities have specific sunglasses custom made for them by Gucci and are what has caused the brand to become so popular. The most popular sunglasses are of course determined by the sales. In the 1950's the most popular brand of sunglasses was Ray-ban and the most popular Ray-ban design were the Wayfarers. These were typically black frame sunglasses with very dark black lenses. Many stars wore these glasses including James Dean. They are also thought to be the best selling sunglasses to date. In the 1960's large sunglasses were made popular by Jackie Onassis and were popular again in 2003 with younger women. Big sunglasses have still maintained their popularity throughout 2014. Another popular Ray-ban model is the Aviator. This design first appeared in 1936 for military use. They were popular with pilots, military and law enforcement persons and their popularity has never wavered.
