Very few accessories have made more of an impression on pop culture than sunglasses, as the shades sported by celebrities and political figures have come to define their images in the public eye. So powerful are these impressions that, in large part, sunglasses have been immune to passing trends, with brands like Ray-Ban and Persol still selling many of the original designs they introduced in the mid-20th century. While the popularity of each style may have ebbed and flowed over the years, the following frames have embedded themselves in our sartorial consciousness over the past 40 years, making them some of today’s most classic and sought-after styles.
