The micro trend: Aviators

Fashion stars including Bella Hadid and Adwoa Aboah demonstrate why aviators are SS18’s most stylish specs

If aviators were your first-ever sunglasses purchase, then dig them out and dust them off. No? Well there’s a raft of new takes on the classic shades to try on for size this season. Yellow-lensed, ’70s-inspired styles are SS18’s hottest remix – look to Chloé, Gucci and Calvin Klein for the most fashionable frames. Part of the aviator’s appeal is its masculinity, making it the perfect optical to offset ultra-feminine outfits. A floaty maxi dress looks instantly more directional once you team it with a pair of Gloria Steinem-esque pilot shades.
