Ocean’s Eight Eyewear Inspiration

A recent ex-convict, her friend, a hacker, a jeweler, a street con, a fashion designer, and a suburban mum join forces in this all-female crew, as they attempt an elaborate heist at the MET Gala, of all places, in this action-comedy, with an all-star cast and enviable fashion staples. We are going to take a look at the eyewear currently trending, inspired by these quirky fashionistas.

Girl Power


Eight powerful, and very different women come together to pull off the perfect job, and they all showcase their very own unique abilities and style, from Nine Ball (Rihanna)’s Modern Rasta to Rose (Helena Bonham Carter)’s vintage eccentric stylings, the outfit inspirations in this film are abundant, and we secretly want them all!

The Mastermind+ Sidekick


We start off with Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), the star of the show and the brains of the operation, in a rounded clubmaster inspired pair of sunnies, great for petite faces, like these Police SPL723. Complete her look with crisp, clean line business casual attire, with a masculine edge, in monochrome tones, don’t shy away from a pop of colour here or there though. Alongside her is Lou, played by none other than Cate Blanchett, in a rethought and updated metallic accent aviator, try the Tiffany & Co. TF3059 for a similar look, and don’t forget to pair with chunky gold accessories and your most fierce outwear, animal print preferred. Take your pick:

Rasta Queen


The dreads are optional, but the geometric sunglasses are not! Get your hands on some Ray-Ban RB3556Ns in palest blue shades now, as this trend is here to stay. Mix them with a layered and colourful look, awash with vibrant prints, and loose fitting cuts to mirror the Nine Ball (Rihanna) look. Go big or go home.

 Floral Musings


As always, Helena Bonham Carter does not disappoint in her role as Rose, her fashion sense is as always, quirky, eccentric and fun. This is not a look where you take off the last accessory you added before you head out the door, this is the one where you add five more, preferably with floral or diamante details, like these Dolce & Gabbana DG3265B red statement specs! Yes, please!

Pair with lace, frills, ruffles, colourful and printed pieces, sequins, glitter and anything else you can find that makes a statement!

 Sleek Stylings


Think suave, sophisticated and edgy, jewel tones and modern silhouettes, as well as classic, staple pieces that you can mix and match like the Marvellens MS8003 sunnies! Mindy Kaling plays Amita, and definitely dresses the part of this hilarious and vibrant character. Throw on a contrast print shirt, a matching trench and some crisp fitted straight leg jeans. Add a matching pump of your choice, and don’t forget your new versatile shades. You’re all set to con, or at least look the part!
