You'll find yourself in good company when you choose these iconic frames: Dan Aykroyd and James Belushi stylishly completed their black suit-and-tie uniform with wayfarer sunglasses as the popular comedic duo The Blues Brothers.

And who could forget Don Henley's wayfarers in the 1980s pop anthem The Boys of Summer.
