Gisele Bündchen in aviator sun glasses.
It doesn’t matter who your favorite celebrity is, you can rest assured they will be sporting some awesome shades you can copy. For example, if models are what you love and you want to show the world you follow Gisele's style, you need to look at what SODA has to offer HERE.

She has been seen wearing the very cool and retro aviator overshaped frames from this premiere designer. They have been a staple with a few of the top names in entertainment for some time now since they hide a lot of the face from photographers.

There are those styles that never really go away but still get a real bump in stature when they get spotted on today’s big stars. Aviator models first got some recognition back in the WWII when pilots used them to cut the glare on missions. Tom Cruise has been sporting them for several years now and Simon Cowell has recently been spotted with them on too. These are basic, practical and cool and companies like Ray Ban have been making relatively inexpensive versions for years now.

There still are some practical decisions that go together with the celebrity sunglasses models that you are sorting through. Taking a moment or two to make sure the fit is right will add to your enjoyment of the type you pick in the end. If you look for a wrapped frame, for example, there is more room to fit a variety of different head and face types. This curve allows for a more comfortable fit.

The Aviator style isn’t just for men. With an alluring redish orange tint and some intricate designs on the temples, Jennifer Lopez was recently spotted in wearing a feminine version of what was once thought to be a style just for the guys.

Paris Hilton favors oversized sunglasses.
What do your sunglasses say about you? A lot more than you might think. Whether you're a bogan, fashionista, metro, Louis Vuitton bag toting woman, triathlete or wanna-be, you will be given away by your choice of eye-wear.

The bogan wears black, usually Dirty Dog, wrap-around sunnies. They're often of square shape and have a somewhat intimidating feel about them. There's no way of seeing a bogan's eyes through these pitch black lenses, but if he is talking with a woman you can guarantee his pupils are aimed at her clevage. Men who don these glasses can be spotted in black jeans and rock band (like Iron Maiden) t-shirts, drinking woodstock bourbon and cola and driving 80s Fords or Holdens.

The classic Ray Ban (wayfarer) look is the style of choice for tight jean wearing dudes and chicks called fashionistas. Such individuals wouldn't be caught dead in any other style and would rather have their eyes fried by the sun than wear bogan or metro shades even on the brightest, most glarey, day of the year. There are varying levels of fashionista too. Those in the higher echelon would never think about wearing imitations from the service station or pharmacy and upgrade from Ray Ban to some other high fashion brand in order to make them feel superior. But to achieve the highest fashionista status one must change from all black glasses to ones with a wire rim and turtle-shell frame.

I use the term metro loosely because some would argue fashionistas and metros are one and the same; although anyone in the fashionista category would denounce someone calling them that. Metros are men who wear Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent branded glasses. These sunnies are worn by men with t-shirts that are too small, but bought small on purpose to enhance the size of their muscles. Often it is  the dress code of new-age footy heads or male hair dressers  who wear  alligator shoes, ripped Diesel jeans and Ed Hardy t-shirts. These men, although loved by girls, spend more time moisturising and styling their hair than their woman do. Who are these men accompanied by? Louis Vuitton bag toting woman. After all, to have a woman with a small dog in her purse is the ultimate accessory and demands respect.

These girls wear, what I call, face-savers. They are worn by dog-in-bag kinda girls like Pairs Hilton who are over accessorised as it is, but must have sunglasses on for fear of public ridicule if they don't. Worn inside and out, night and day the bag totter never takes her glasses off. She is summed up perfectly in the song by Mike Posner titled Cooler than me. ''You got designers shades just to hide your face and you wear them around like you're cooler than me.''  The wanna-be is somewhere in the middle or all the above groups. Not edgy enough for Ray Ban or muscley enough for metro glasses the wana-be wears aviators or some other pair of cheap novelty glasses. They looked cool being worn by Tom Cruise in Top Gun, but these days their coolness is being degraded. Why? Because they're on the face of guys who wear outrageous costumes to Twenty20 cricket matches.People of all descriptions walk the street wearing sunglasses over summer. Next time you're out and about,  have fun categorising.
