She’s the Academy Award winning actress about to step into the boots of the latest Marvel superhero – say hello to Brie Larson. Playing Carol Denvers in the upcoming origin film Captain Marvel, Brie has scored numerous accolades in her varied acting career, including a BAFTA and a Golden Globe.
However, it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the soon-to-be-superstar. With a music career that didn’t quite take off and failed auditions of high profile roles, Brie has admitted to almost giving up acting altogether – and we couldn’t be happier that she didn’t!
We adore the star’s uplifting presence on social media, which she uses to share positive, empowering messages written by herself. And much in the same way, Brie agreed to take on the role of Captain Marvel in order to encourage and empower young women – a pretty marvellous decision, if you ask us. She trained solidly for nine months in preparation for the mammoth role, and we can’t wait to see her in action next month when the film finally hits our screens.
As an aficionado of gorgeous eyewear to boot, we think we may have just found our new favourite actress. Join us as we look at the Brie’s top eyewear looks, and how you can emulate her style on a budget, too!
To kick things off, Brie is pictured above wearing a powerful utilitarian look. Simple greys and blacks come together to create a classic, composed and practical look. We love the addition of a black baker-boy hat and white plimsolls, giving the outfit a classic retro feel.
Drawn together with slick round shades, it’s a look that draws inspiration from the past (think 60s vibes with a muted, modern twist), while retaining its own personality.
We think the Polaroid PLD 4053/S frames below are the perfect style steal. And at a price that won’t break the bank either, this is a superhero look in every sense!

An apt outfit for the absolutely freezing weather outside (does anyone actually remember ever being warm?), we’re loving Brie’s dusty blue faux fur coat, paired with black jeans and white Adidas trainers. It’s a great way of showcasing the effectiveness of a statement wardrobe piece and confident, bold styling.
We’re loving Brie’s classic cat-eye shades here, too. Serving as a reminder to wear shades in the colder weather as well as warm (those snowy days can be super bright!), they’re a stylish finish to the actress’s look.
Cover all bases, regardless of the weather, with the effortlessly chic #totallook DW010. A gorgeous frame with intricate gold detailing, these cat-eye shades are the perfect go-to accessory for any outfit.
Channelling vibes from Captain Marvel’s Carol Denver herself, we’re obsessed with this off-road adventurous look from Brie. Snapped on New Year’s Day, the star wears double denim to layer up and keep warm, while a shell-pink backpack and light cream scarf, tucked under a hooded puffer jacket, adds practicality as well as style.
We’re loving the round frames worn by Brie here. Although dedicated cycling frames may be more suitable for the hardcore bikers amongst us (which you can find stocked on our site here), for the more leisurely rides, the #totallook DW122 frames below are a gorgeous finish to any outfit (and will still help to block out those UV rays!).
Ramping things up a gear with a beautiful high-fashion look, Brie raises the stakes in these gorgeous statement square frames. Pairing the knock-out shades with a simple blue fleece, it’s a gorgeous take on the square frame trend that’s set to take over the high street this season.
We think the #totallook DW155 are the perfect way to channel Brie’s bold look. Check them out below to keep one step ahead of the hottest SS19 trend (without having to break open the piggy bank!)
Further proof that bold styling can elevate the most classic of looks, we’re obsessed with Brie’s outfit here. Teaming a chunky high-neck jumper with a pair of blue jeans and white high-tops, it’s an instantly chic look when paired with the actress’s raspberry bucket bag and oversized round shades.
Bold sunglasses will be everywhere this season, and the Owlet OWIS161 frames below keep things on trend without being too flashy. They’re a classic, chic staple that belong in any wardrobe regardless of season. Check them out below!
