Now that Summer has finally kicked off it’s time to focus on this season’s it-accessory- sunglasses. Sunglasses not only protect you from the sun but they are also a great addition to any outfit, and as cinema has shown they can also be quite iconic. Cat-eye, rimless, aviator; the list of styles is endless. The hard part is choosing which to wear! But don’t fret because today’s article features some famous shades from film that’ll have you looking absolutely spec-tacular.
A favorite amongst many, Breakfast at Tiffany’s proves that you can survive on a few style essentials in the city. Audrey Hepburn’s large pair of shades are the perfect staple for someone on a small budget, much like her character Holly Golightly. The broad lenses are ideal for covering up dark circles from a wild night out in the city and will have you looking just as dazzling as Hepburn herself.
“The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club…” But these unique shades are too good to keep under wraps. If you’re looking for a different look, color tinted lenses are a great way to start. Heat up your outfit with a red pair like Pitt or cool down with some cool toned ones.

Hands-down, Madonna is known for her eclectic and individual style. From stacks of necklaces to her trademark hair bow, she’s a true trendsetter. But in this particular film Madonna tied together her soft side with her rough side by wearing classic black sunglasses with an edgy twist. Their sharp structure can be dressed up or down depending on your mood.
Better known for its appearance in the 80’s film Risky Business, these classic wayfarers are the ultimate sunglasses. Perfect for practically any face shape or gender, they compliment anyone and everyone. Whether you’re getting into some fun chaos like Cruise or just chilling, grab a pair for the occasion.
If there’s one thing you should take away from the movie Lolita, it’s that’s the shape of your sunglasses can have quite an effect. The film features a pair of red heart-shaped ones, but if you are looking to wear something new, try circular or hexagonal shades.
The movie itself is as mind boggling as can be, but the fashion is clean and easy. To simplify your look pick up a pair of rimless glasses. Their smooth silhouette will have you looking as neat as Neo and give you the confidence to kick butt.
Cat-eye sunglasses aren’t always coquettish, which was proven to be true in this film. Susan Sarandon showed that feline shades can keep you looking hot in a hot pursuit. Their classic femininity went for a wild ride, showing that any piece or accessory can be versatile and work with your own personal style.
