While we love the latest trends that celebrities post on social media and fashion editors publish in glossy magazines, there’s nothing like a little style inspiration from iconic characters on the silver screen. From black and white flicks to award-winning motion pictures, there are some looks that make us just as envious as the first time we ever laid eyes on them. In no particular order (simply because we love them all just as much!), here are our top five movie sunglasses and the shades from ROC Eyewear that will let you steal the famous styles.
Top Gun – Aviators
How could this 80s classic not make it onto any list about iconic shades?! Tom Cruise stars in this action-packed picture wearing one of the most iconic looks in film history: a pilot’s uniform and the ultra-cool Aviators. It’s recognisable even to those who won’t admit that they haven’t watched the movie! Snatch up this fly look with our Baby It’s You Baby It's You shades.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s – Oversize
Arguably one of the most elegant outfits ever is the one Audrey Hepburn wore in the famous scene outside of Tiffany & Co. Her stylish accessories of gloves and an extravagant necklace are paired with a stunning pair of oversize sunglasses – a look fit for Hollywood royalty. Enjoy your next breakfast Holly Golightly-style with our Supreme Queen shades.
The Matrix – Mini
Who doesn’t love sci-fi mixed with a bit of cyberpunk? The mysterious and famously all-black look sported by Keanu Reeves in this dystopian future gives us all kinds of style inspiration. Take your leather jacket and LBD to the next level with our Blah Blah shades.
Charlie’s Angels – Gradient
With a glam squad including Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Lui, the 2000 Charlie’s Angels film is another on-screen style pick we can’t resist. All three private investigators mean business and there’s no denying it with their rose, teal and blue-toned lenses. We love a gradient of colour in the sun and our Choose Me sunglasses are perfect for just that.
Pretty Woman – Round & Cat Eye
Yes, we’re ending it off with a double because we can! One of the most successful romcoms of all time, Pretty Woman, leaves us with big feels (we love a good makeover). The friendship between characters Vivian and Kit is undeniable on-screen, as is their style in shades. Julia Roberts and Laura San Giacomo share a casual scene, strolling while wearing a pair of round and cat eye sunglasses – timeless with a bit of sass. You and your BFF can rock this epic 90s look with our Gemini and Knock Out V2 shades.
