Unexpectedly, many people who dream of becoming aviators wore these aviator sunglasses, which symbolizes the heroism of the aviators. At the same time, due to the enthusiasm of Hollywood stars for these sunglasses, they began to become popular among the general public.

Female celebrities can drive the trend of sunglasses, and so can male celebrities. At that time, American film actor James Dean liked to wear eyebrow sunglasses in front of the public. Also, Malcolm X, an important figure in the American civil rights movement, also became the Icon of these sunglasses. And then, eyebrow sunglasses became popular among men.
The word 'Oversize' influenced the entire 60s and 70s, and also drove the design of sunglasses at that time. Large-size and exaggerated sunglasses once became the favorite of ladies.
Psychedelic Granny Glasses
The glasses with ultra-small lens and a metal frame are called 'Granny Glasses'. The glasses are just like the one that grandmother wore in the movie 'Beverley Hillbillies.' And the hippies even applied all kinds of lenses to the 'Granny Glasses'. The most classic one is the granny glasses with psychedelic fluorescent color.
