Just like a Chanel chain-strap bag, or a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress, the Ray-Ban ‘Original Aviator’ Sunglasses ($139) are a fashion staple that never go out of style. Whether you’re on your way to work, or lounging poolside, these iconic sunglasses make you look cool and classic without much effort.  There are more affordable aviator options, but if you don’t feel like replacing a cheap pair of sunglasses that break every season, these Ray-Ban aviators are for you. If you still aren’t convinced, we crunched some numbers, and did the Fashion Math:

If you wear these sunglasses everyday for the three months, they cost less than a gallon of milk. And these sunglasses will be your go-to all year long. They have 100% UV protection, and unlike the cheaper versions that break from the slightest touch, these Ray-Ban ‘Original Aviator’ Sunglasses are made in Italy and will stand the test of time.
