What Are Wayfarer Frames?
Sophisticated yet assertive, Wayfarer frames are widely popular. But how exactly did they come about? The wayfarer frame was created 60 years ago by a designer working for Bausch and Lomb. In its original form, the Wayfarer frame was supposed to resemble the tail fins of a Cadillac. With its fashionable look and hint of masculine energy, the Wayfarer became an instant hit with the Beat Generation and sustained its popularity through the rest of the century into the new millennium, boosted by the Wayfarer shades of the Blues Brothers and other celebrities in the 1980s.
Wayfarers maintain their popularity today, with retro fashion sweeping across the world. A fashion statement with a hint of celebrity, Wayfarer sunglasses look great on men and women alike while offering a wide visual field and extensive eye protection. Even better, Wayfarer frames and Wayfarer hybrids look good on just about any face shape.
