Red Ray Ban Wayfarers

OK we all know wayfarer's are big, but these days our young Hollywood starlets can't get enough of their ray ban wayfarer's that their now sporting these 80's shades in fiery red. First seen on Lindsay Lohan red wayfarer's are a modern take on the classic style.

It takes a lot of confidence to pull off such a bright color adorning your face, but Mary Kate Olsen and Rachel Bilson work the look by keeping the rest of their outfit black, while Sienna Miller prefers to color coordinate which also works.

However, I don't think red wayfarers will stand the test of time, so it may be better to invest in a cheaper chain store inspired style for around $10 rather than folk out $100 on a very trendy seasonal piece.

this is one of those trends that only celebrities can get away with wearing, because personally i think wayfarers are a horrible look and secondly bright red makes them all the more worse. These celebs are actually convinicing me that they might actually look good, but i think i might restrain myself from wearing them.

Nick Jonas's favorite glasses are his red wayfarers.

I bought a pair of red Wayfarers last year and love them. They are kind of kinky, like Lolita all grown up. And for the record, dear blogger, they are not 80's eyewear. They were first manufactured in 1952 and then quickly became a social status symbol with Audrey Hepburn wearing them in Breakfast at Tiffany's.
