Every time spring and summertime hits, I’m always looking for a new pair of sunglasses. In the last couple of years, I’ve been wearing mainly Aviators – one black and one brown. But this year, I seem to be leaning towards the tortoise colored Wayfarer, which to me evokes that retro style of the Mad Men series. Wayfarers, especially Ray-Bans, were extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s. Although the style went in and out throughout the next few decades, I’m thinking that they will make a huge comeback with the popularity of shows like Mad Men.

Here are a few of my favorites:
