Christian Dior 2517 sunglasses
These Christian Dior 2517 sunglasses are vintage from the 1970′s. Their frame style is large with large lenses. What is most interesting about Christian Dior 2517 eyeglasses is the marbled rims and temples. I love the color variation at the rims and the metal on the corners. Not only will you get a true retro look from these sunglasses but they are very fashionable.
Persol Ratti Aviator Glasses
Persol Ratti Aviator shades may not look retro but when you wear them you see their true retro taste. They also have a large frame style and medium size rims and temples. The metal encryptions on the side arms and bridge add some glamor to the glasses while the clear lenses complete the look.

The most conspicuous thing about these Morato squared glasses is their cuteness. If you are under prescription, this might be the frame you need because it will serve you everywhere including reading and providing protection from radiation. Ladies will love wearing them plus they are not so expensive.

Ray Ban wayfarers are very common but coming to think of it, they are not going out of fashion any time soon. These ones with a black frame and clear lenses are great for a bit of a retro look. As usual, Ray Ban eye wear is good quality and worth your money.
