The 25 Most Memorable Sunglasses on Film

When we say the word sunglasses, do you think of the slick Wayfarers donned in Reservoir Dogs or do you think of your old fluorescent sunnies from Maccy D's, floating around in the bottom of your wardrobe?

If it's the latter, firstly discard the Big Mac-stained excuses for protective eye wear, and secondly, take note, for we have compiled a list of the best sunglasses on the big screen.

From Dirty Harry's wrap-arounds to Bond's classic Aviators, the next time you're thinking of "rocking" some questionable shades, you'll have no excuses.
