Iron Man glasses

Iron Man’s glasses, aka EDITH glasses, are highly advanced minicomputers designed by Tony Stark himself. They can search the web, order food, text or initiate a call on the spot just by voice command. 

While this technology doesn’t exist (yet), add aviator frames to your look to polish your genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist costume. You can’t go wrong with a solid black rim and a gradient blue tint

Harry Potter glasses 

Wizards never go out of style. Harry Potter is not only famous for his epic battle against the most powerful wizard of all times – he’s also known for his classic round glasses.  

Grab a robe (your graduation robe, maybe?), draw a lightning bolt-shaped scar on your forehead, and rock a timeless round metal frame. Bonus points if you find a  wand and can cast a spell.

Elle Woods glasses

Smart, determined, bubbly  Elle Woods from Legally Blonde has become a bit of a cult fave to channel on Halloween (and – why not – beyond). A pink outfit paired with bold oval or cat-eye frames will do the trick.  

Another Reese Witherspoon look that errs on a more conservative side is Lauren Scott (This Means War). A dark plastic D-shape frame with a touch of colour is the perfect addition to your eyewear collection.

Matrix glasses

Put on a long black coat, a pair of Matrix sunglasses, and prepare to enter the room in slow-motion.  

For Agent Smith’s glasses, pick a thin black rectangle frame (and don’t forget to frown – that’s an integral part of the costume). If you’re thinking Trinity, go for taller oval frames.

Dwight Schrute glasses 

A fan favourite from The Office, Dwight Schrute is devoted to his look. Pair a light yellow shirt and tie with a metal aviator frame to replicate this well-known ensemble.
