Aviators vs. Wayfarers: Our Editors Weigh in on Their Favorite Shades

With summer officially started, we've got sunglasses on the brain. And when it comes to buying a new pair, we all must decide: Wayfarers or aviators? Of course, this leaves plenty of room for debate and our editors are rarely quiet on such issues. It seems we have more Wayfarers fans than aviator devotees on the team, but where do you stand?

"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
