Need a little inspiration for your next set of shades? The cinema has long been an influencer of opinions on everything from politics, to cultures, to music trends, and - of course - fashion choices. So where better to look than the big screen for some inspiration for a new edgy look? So we’ve compiled a list of five fun frame styles that our favorite movie characters would sport.
Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada
As the fierce and fearless editor of Runway magazine, Miranda Priestly (portrayed to perfection by acting goddess Meryl Streep) knows fashion trends before anyone has heard of them. She’s bold with her style choices and confident in her opinion and chic taste. Miranda may wear Prada, but our Jim Halo frames have all the glam without the hit to the wallet.

Would you? If red isn’t your bright color of choice, choose from 86 other color schemes for these customizable frames.

The Bride aka Black Mamba, Kill Bill

Lady Mary, Downton Abbey
Sci-fi action not your thing? How about channeling some old-world class with Lady Mary of Downton Abbey. In the 2019 feature film spinoff from the hit PBS series, the lovable residents of the Downton Abbey estate find themselves in the late 1920’s, an era of bob haircuts, flapper dresses, jazz, and rounded sunglasses. Chins up, pinkies out, and glasses on.
