Sometimes we get annoyed when our favorite band becomes too popular. The quality of the music doesn't change at all, but it makes us uncomfortable that everyone else likes our little secret. We feel that way now, about Wayfarers. The shades of choice for Sienna and Chloe actually got their style start in the '60s, when Audrey Hepburn and Bob Dylan glued them to their iconic faces. Yet despite maintaining their cool factor for several decades, Wayfarers are finally suffering the same fate trucker hats did in 2003 - at least according to the New York Observer. Suddenly the ubiquitous Ray-Bans aren't being used to complement rehab jeans and Converse sneakers- they're now being paired with Lacoste polos and khakis. Those who adopted the iconic shades as a nod to Sienna and Audrey aren't exactly thrilled to be sporting the same sunglasses as Southern sorority girls and Wall Street bankers-- so they've ditched their favorite shades. But should we abandon our trademark accessories when they suddenly become cliche? --NATALIE MATTHEWS
