You must be running out of things to do with all the free time on your hands! Because while most of us are still working from the comforts of our home, let’s be real—things are different and time seem to have been going by way slower now that we literally don’t get to go anywhere else. We’re all dreaming of the great outdoors, but while stepping out of the house is not a valid option right now, we think it’s a great time to brush up on both fashion and movie history. Below is the list of 10 films that made classic Ray-Ban eyewear styles the icons they are today—and trust us when we say these movies are all worth adding to your home quarantine watch list. Breakfast at Tiffany’s: The Wayfarer Audrey Hepburn is easily one of the world’s most identifiable female fashion icons, and we have her role in this 60s classic to thank for it. If you’re one of those who are obsessed with her signature LBD and chic sunglasses look but secretly haven’t seen the actual film that made it iconic, now’s your chance to find out why exactly Breakfast at Tiffany’s put Audrey on the map—and on millions of wall prints, mugs, pillowcases, and Pinterest boards, too. Risky Business: The Wayfarer If you don’t know of a single person that’s pulled up to a Halloween party dressed as Joel Goodsen, you’re lying. Tom Cruise, in his first starring role, rocking his Ray-Bans and dancing around in his living room in his skivvies, charmed the hell out of audiences in the 80s, and we’re willing to bet he’ll have the same effect on you now. Aptly titled Risky Business, this film is a dark, sexy teen comedy that bravely explores all the good—and the bad—that can result from breaking the rules. The Breakfast Club: The Wayfarer Nothing captures the adolescent experience quite like a John Hughes film. A true teen classic, The Breakfast Club has you spending the day in isolation with five teens who embody the most common high school stereotypes—the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, and the criminal. We love how this movie shows that people are always more than meets the eye, and how much you can actually learn about a person if only you take the time to listen. Easy A: The Wayfarer If there’s one thing we can learn from this biting teen comedy, it’s that the only thing that spreads faster than a virus is gossip. The best thing about this film is that you not only get to laugh your way though Olive Penderghast’s high school misadventures; you find yourself learning so much about gender norms, stereotypes, and inequalities, while you’re at it, too. Top Gun: The Aviator Why yes, this is another Tom Cruise entry. Revisit the 80s classic that made his career soar to new heights—pun clearly intended. Get a load of this romantic action film with its many quotable quotes and thrilling aerial fight scenes, just before its long-awaited
