Hello Beautiful! Return of the General in Rose Gold

There’s nothing like a strong woman in a pair of aviators. That’s why it was important for us to offer the General – our quintessential aviator – in shades that women can wear just as well as men – our favorite being Rose Gold.

Perfecting an aviator that looks as good on women as men takes more than color selection. Over the course of 2019 and 2020, all AO factory tooling was updated to make the General better than ever. Fit properties were fine-tuned for a style that is more comfortable and easier to wear. An updated pantoscopic tilt better follows the natural shape of the face, a fine-tuned temple creates a sleeker look, and more precise coining gives a more luxurious feel.

Not only do aviators provide excellent UV coverage with their teardrop lens shape, the adjustable temples and nosepads allow for a more custom fit than most sunglasses. The metal frame also makes them durable and lightweight (especially when choosing AOLite lenses).

Beyond all that, they just go with everything. Putting on the General pulls together a simple outfit of a t-shirt and jeans, or adds an edge to your professional look.
