"To me, there's nothing more classic than a solid-colored pair of Wayfarers. They're the ultimate unisex, looks-good-on-pretty-much-every-face-shape shades and have the most delightful '80s Bret Easton Ellis vibe. I love mine so much that I actually own them both in basic black and a folding version with mirrored lenses that I can squeeze into even the teensiest clutch. Hey, you never know when searing rays of sunshine might strike!" - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor
"You know that girl who uses a proper cleaning cloth on her sunglasses instead of her t-shirt hem? I'm not her. I'm the idiot who tosses sunglasses in her handbag without a case alarmingly often and just hopes for the best. So for me it's not a style issue but a practicality one: Wayfarers can take a bit of a beating but aviators are wiry and bendy. I deform them all within a month, so Wayfarers win." - Natalie Matthews, Digital Fashion Writer
"I'm so pro-aviator—they look good on everyone. Boy, girl, old, young...they are the perfect sunglasses!" - Lisa Goldstein, Fashion Market Assistant
"I bought a pair of aviators once for a Halloween party. That was the last time I wore them." - John Jannuzzi, Contributing Digital Editor
