The lighter, thinner sunglasses replaced the heavy, thick goggles of the time. They traditionally feature thin wire frames and large lenses that cover up to three times the wearer's eye. After the war, they were popular with athletes for their ability to minimize glare. But it wasn't until World War II, when General Douglas McArthur was photographed sporting a pair, that the sunglasses entered the fashion world. They've been a popular style staple ever since.
