Aviator Sunglasses for Women
Functional Style: Aviator Sunglasses for Women
Like all Sunski sunglasses, aviator sunglasses for women were originally designed with a functional purpose in mind. As the name suggests, they come from the world of aviation, a world of adventure, open air, and blazing sun. Way back in the 1930s, Air Force pilots needed some help blocking high altitude rays. The first Anti-Glare aviators were born (modern day Ray-Bans), and the style continues to be one of the most popular sunglasses to this day.
Special Features of Our Aviator Sunglasses for Women
Aviator sunglasses do a lot more than just look good. Their teardrop shape covers the entire area around your eyes, guaranteeing that the sunshine doesn’t get in the way of your day. Aviator sunglasses for women also have a convex lens that covers the entire eye range. No matter which way you turn your head, that pesky glare won’t get in. Our aviator sunglasses for women go beyond these basics. Their lightweight design, side sun shields, and polarized lenses will keep you as fashion-forward and protected as can be.
They’re Lightweight and Stay on your Face:
The original aviators had thin metal frames and a bar across the brow. Sunski’s Astra and Bernina offer this classic look with a superlight feel. Our metal frame sunglasses are made from a hybrid electroplated stainless steel exoskeleton. The sculpted surfaces of their frames offer maximum swag while keeping the frames snug around your ears.
Our Foxtrot aviators are a modern take on a 1970’s classic, made with our Sunski signature recycled plastic material. They’re incredibly durable, but weigh only 15 grams. The same goes for our alpine-oriented Treeline aviators, which put up a strong defense against snow blindness while being light as a feather. Both of these frames have super grippy rubber nose pads so you can slide and jump without your sunglasses doing the same.
For when that teardrop shape’s coverage isn’t quite enough, we offer two pairs of aviator sunglasses for women with sun shields. These aviators are winterized for your winter-eyes. Sun shields attach to the side of the lenses, closing off any opportunity for the sun to glare into your side-eye. We assume you’ll be moving around with your Sunskis on, so we included ventilation holes to prevent them from fogging.
The Bernina's sun shields are minimalist yet powerful. The Treeline side shields are larger, but detachable. They’re meant for the high alpine, so take ‘em for a spin in the snow. Your peepers will have the comfort of the breeze flowing through while experiencing the protection of a pair of ski goggles. Then, when summer rolls around to the mountains, just pull off the magnetized shades and you have yourself a pair of classic aviator sunglasses!
UV Blocking, Reflection Stopping Lenses
Sunski added polarized lenses to the classic aviator’s already-large frames to give extra protection when you’re out in the elements. Each pair of our aviator sunglasses for women have 100% UVA/UVB protection plus the added glare protection and clarity offered by polarization. The premium lens on the Astra and Bernina is made from CR-39. The superior clarity, abrasion resistance and strength will give you the confidence to take risks in your sport of choice. If your aviator sunglasses for women take a hit from a stray pebble, we’ll happily offer replacement lenses.
How to Style Your Aviator Sunglasses for Women
Aviator sunglasses’ teardrop shape works best for ladies with a larger or more angular face. If you have a diamond, heart, oval or square shaped face, our aviator sunglasses for women are perfect for you.

Aviator sunglasses can be pulled off by Sun-Skiers of all ages. Our own president, Joe Biden, is a loyal aviator sunglasses lover. He rocks them at age 78-- a great example of their timelessness. (If only his pair were Sunskis, they’d be polarized, too.) While aviator sunglasses have historically been seen on famous men, women from JLo to Kara Swisher have proven that their teardrop shape is flattering on all genders. Ladies have an advantage, too: while men sometimes run the risk of looking like a washed-up frat star in aviator sunglasses, ladies just look bad-a**.
Our aviator sunglasses for women might just be the quintessential Sunskis. They check every last one of our metrics--style, fit, performance, value, sustainability--making them your ultimate outdoor sidekick from the trail to the sailboat.
