A New Twist on Classic Aviator Sunglasses

Sometimes, all it takes to pull together a look are the right shades, à la Tom Cruise in Top Gun.

Sometimes, all it takes to pull together a look are the right shades. I frequently go with aviators to transform a tailored outfit for work (i.e., suit and tie) into something cooler. Aviators are a classic style that most men can pull off easily, regardless of face shape, so you really can't go wrong. Think Tom Cruise in Top Gun.

For spring/summer '12, I recommend one of these new styles from Burberry. They're a modern take on the traditional frames, as you can see in the slightly squared-out shape of the lenses.

Modeled here by British rockers and house favorites George Craig of One Night Only (left) and Sam Fry of Life in Film (right), they're an easy way to maintain a stylish look all summer long.
