I'm so late with that trend!
I didn't even bother to try them till a few days ago and now I think it'll be my next purchase.
They seem to suit me and are far more affordable than the Chloe & Chanel of my dreams!

^^I had all my sunglasses adjusted too. It makes them fit so much better!

You can actually adjust your sunglasses at home if you want a tighter fit. Put the middle of the glasses, the bridge, in between a pair of hair straighteners, let it warm up and just bend them in slightly.
(Just be careful not to touch the hot surface or it will leave a mark on your frames!)

I want to try this! But I'm kinda scared I'll do it wrong and my Ray-bans will never be the same.

The plastic is pretty durable so shouldn't be too much of a problem, you can use a hairdryer too. Just warm them up, not too hot, and they bend into shape. But if in doubt just go to your local opticians!

This is how they do it professionally to give you an idea-

(Don't think I'd want my Ray-Bans in his hands, judging by the amount he bends them!! )

I'd rather go with a professional, especially since it's free for adjustments. But that's just me. When I've done it, they adjust a little then you try them on - if you need it they adjust a little more, and so on and so on. Until they fit perfect.

I was thinking of getting a pair. Was just wondering though should they fit your head tight?

Well as long as they feel comfortable and don't fall down your face then that would be a good fit. But like we were discussing, they can be adjusted to fit tighter if you prefer!

Also another quick tip when choosing glasses in general- try to get your eyes centered within the frames, even if they're centered in the top half that's fine. And make sure they just sit just below the eyebrows (that way they don't mask any of your facial features/expressions).

I think the style has moved away from a hipster street trend, and is now reverting back to the more classic style as seen on Audrey Hepburn. It should be worn with a preppy, sophisticated or put together look.

I really love that Anna Dello Russo and her assistants Vivien and Aurora are wearing Ray Bans more now, with anything and everything. They make it look so chic, grown up and fresh!

Oh and Kate Moss is also wearing the large Ray Ban 2140 54mm style constantly these days like Anna Dello Russo and Aurora.



Here are some photos of Kate Moss recently wearing her Ray Ban Wayfarer 2140 54mm sunglasses all around the world. She looks so good in them!

chance to buy on line a real vintage model?
Hello,

I don't know I am getting crazy to have my first rayban wayfarer. But not the oversize one, black like Andy Warhol and PP Pasolini. Any suggestion where to buy on line?
