Are Maui Jim aviators worth it?

You may notice a slight price difference between those gas station shades that resemble the iconic lines and persona of the aviator and Maui Jim's aviators. That's because after a similar aesthetic the similarities end. To be fair, you probably clicked on this blog because you already know that. You're curious about why you should choose Maui Jim aviators over another high end brand. We can help.

With just about every top brand on the market offering a women's aviator it's good to know a few reason's why Maui is unique. Let's start by discussing frame materials. You can expect a mix of Titanium, woven nylon, plastic, or MauiFlex used depending on what frame you choose. For those of you who are wondering, MauiFlex is a proprietary metal blend developed by Maui Jim that comfortably molds to your face shape for the perfect fit without sacrificing frame strength. You can also be sure that any frame material used by Maui will be top of the line.

When it comes to lens tech Maui Jim really pulls out all the stops. Their patented PolarizedPlus2 lenses offer spectacular optics, scratch resistance, anti-glare tech, AND block harmful UV rays and blue light. The bottom line, polarized aviator sunglasses are the way to go. If you're considering another brand and they don't have high quality polarized lenses you should take them off your list. You're eye's will thank you. Additionally, Maui's array of fun lens tints and exciting new mirrors add a bit of custom flavor to your vision. The combo of tint and tech should make Maui aviators a strong contender on your list.

Do aviators look good on Women?

Well this is an important question isn't it? Maybe you aren't sure whether aviator sunglasses are for ladies? Maybe you're concerned they won't work with your vibe. We get that. Sunglasses are an important accessory to match your look as much as they are a luxury for your eyes. Let's get into all of that below.

Do aviator sunglasses look good on women? Well, this blog would be much shorter if they didn't. The answer of course is yes! They look fabulous. The trick is knowing which ladies aviator works best for you.

Face Shape

The first thing to take into account is face shape. Fortunately, aviators happen to work well with square, oval, and heart shaped faces. Round face shapes are the only ones that don't work as well with the classic aviator look. However, if you have a round face and love that aviator look, Maui Jim offers a few less traditional aviators that fly as high as any of the classics. Be on the look out for square or wayfarer shapes if you have a round face. If you require a little more info on face shape you can always refer to our guide to the best sunglasses for my face shape.

Where to wear my aviators?

The second thing to keep in mind is that aviators are a great look for almost any venue or occasion. They can be the shade to your sundress, the salt to your lime, or the glitz to your glam. Okay, we may have gotten a little carried away but you get the point. They can dress up AND down.

What size sunglasses do I need?

Knowing your size is also important in order to find a frame that sits perfectly on your face. You will conveniently find our SFW sizing below each frame. If you want to know a little more about SFW and what your size is we have a helpful video below!

Do I need polarized aviator sunglasses?

To answer this question let's cover the basics on what polarized lenses actually do. The purpose of a standard sunglass lens is to reduce light transmission and shade your eyes. Most accomplish this to some degree or another though not all lenses are created equal! Polarized lenses take this a step further and reduce glare which is harsh reflected light transmitted off objects such as; windshields, water, bumpers, or asphalt. No other lens accomplishes this.

Maui Jim's PolarizedPlus2 lenses take the quality of polarized tech a step above the rest. Fortunately, this is a standard luxury in all Maui Jim shades.

Maui Jim Alelele Bridge

Following the Haleiwa's flare we had to go fashion forward with the Alelele Bridge. Thin injected nylon makes it's only appearance on our list as the primary frame material which is probably because the majority of aviators feature metal frames. The polished look of the frame gives an all business look. Be prepared to stand out with these edgy aviators.

Maui Jim Beaches

The first thing you may notice about the Maui Jim Beaches is the unique colorway. These tasteful colors seem to be inspired by fading sunsets and lush tropical gardens and almost distract you from the frame itself! Once you're finished appreciating the color palate you notice the elegant frame design. The lens shape lounges somewhere between rectangular and teardrop and really says, laid back. Truly slip into that island state of mind with the Beaches.

Maui Jim Swinging Bridges

Maui Jim's Swinging Bridges marries classic aviator style with an elegant taste of modern flare. You can see this in the metal frame which is accompanied by acetate temples as a comfortable touch. A lone brow bar gives these frames a suspended floating look balanced on your nose. Kind of like the swinging bridges you see on tropical Hawaiian hikes.
