The Most Iconic Sunglasses from Movies
Movies and films have shaped our idea of fashion for decades now. We have taken clues from movies, films, and TV shows; they have elevated leather jackets, the next hairstyle, and even eyewear. They even created fashion icons. For example, when Tom Cruise wore a pair of Ray-Ban Aviators on Top Gun, this made aviator sunglasses’ sales to increase by 40%. Decades have passed since Top Gun first showed on the movie theaters; and aviator sunglasses still are associated with style and elegance and pilots.
