As we’ve noted before, aviators are in the midst of a serious revival. When well executed, the effect is something along the lines of an iconoclastic French novelist. When done with less skill, it’s easy to get into trouble, so allow us to steer you towards the correct path.

These frames (via SwipeLife) aren’t quite the glorious 58256s we gushed about before, but it’s hard to go too far wrong with Persol. Naturally, you can get them as shades too…but not without cutting into your French novelist cred.
