Get the Look: Wayfarers Are Back!

02/05/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Back in November, we predicted that the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers would make a comeback — and they have with a bang, being worn by everyone from Mischa Barton to Kirsten Dunst. The 80’s style is a nice break from the huge oversized sunglasses of last year, and if you don’t feel like splurging on the $130 orginals, there are some very inexpensive alternatives worth checking out.

Star Splurge: To get Mischa’s pair, click over to, $130.

Style Steal: To get them on the cheap, try, $14, or get them for the whole gang at, $18 for a dozen!

Let me guess, becasue Mischa Barton (yack) is wearing them they are back ins tyle???

Nothing this girl wears is in style.

Wayfarers are ugly and just because Mischa wears them doesn’t make them fashionable! Who decides what’s in style and what isn’t? Whoever it is, he/she/they are doing a terrible job! Yuck!

I agree that just because Misha is wearing them doesn’t mean they are back. I don’t think they will ever come back. I will stick with my big sunglasses…


i concur
some celebs/people dress so ugly. i think they’ve run out of clothes to wear (since they can afford a new outfit everyday) that they have to resort to old/crazy/ugly style.
i guess everyone has their own style and if you think you look good or even look pretty…go ahead girl…as long as you think so.

I don’t care if they are in style or not, if they don’t look cute on me, I ain’t wearin’ them!!!

Elaine on

ew. ew. and EW.

Just because some 100 lb. excuse for an actress wears them doesnt mean theyre back in style

Umm 130 dollars? Wow where they 130 dollars back when Tom Cruise wore them in “Risky Business”? I think 130 dollars is a little bit high ( possible rip off), the Wayfare is a very hard style for many faces to pull off, and just becasue every star wants to wear them now doesn’t mean waste 130 dollars on a pair of glasses that to tell the truth aren’t really that stylish.

I love the cat eye style sun glasses they were popular in the 80’s…I wore them in high school.

Yuck! Ugly! Want to go real vintage just stop at the local truck stop!
