Metal Aviator sunglasses have made a comeback, thanks again to the Look-spawning effects of "Sex in the City," whether you like the franchise or not.  (See my blog post Cost of Dressing)

Mykita's Franz Aviator sunglasses
The classic frames are originally by Ray Ban and look terrific as a final touch to a Sporty Glamor look.  The reflective frames seen in the movie are Mykita and Bernhard Limited Edition frames called "Franz".  Named after a legendary downhill skier, Franz Klammer, they channel your inner athlete.  Of course, with a price tag that matches Manolo Blahniks, you might do better digging up your Original Ray Bans.  Fashionistas can also get a cheap fix at places like Topshop or H&M.

Here's a look I posted on Polyvore accessorizing with the original Ray Ban aviators.   They look just as good with leather bombers a la "Top Gun", or with an easy summer dress as below:
