In 1980, the comic and musical duo The Blues Brothers, directed by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, embarked on a journey that would transform it into a cult film. John and Dan wore outfits that were considered obsolete at the time. However, by adding dark glasses and their crazy, rebellious nature, they made them a part of the modern rock world. We, of course, mean the black suit, hat, and sunglasses, which are now considered classics.
3. Sweatshirt Dance-flash.

4. Ghostbusters costume.
One of the greatest successes of the 1980s was Ghostbusters, which was written by one of the main characters, Dan Aykroyd, whom we mentioned earlier, who was a member of the Blues Brothers.

The team's logo with the ghost crossed out with a red stripe became so popular that young people wore it on T-shirts and sweatshirts.
5. Jacket The best shooter.
Another classic film from the 80s, Top Shooter. One of the songs on the soundtrack “Take My Breath Away” became one of the most famous slow songs of the decade, and with the film, they both became classics. Tom Cruise's character turned his sunglasses and jacket into a legendary outfit.
6. Coat and hat of Humphrey Bogart from Casablanca.
Casablanca is undoubtedly one of the greatest films of all time and it is impossible to talk about the history of cinema without mentioning it.

Marilyn Monroe is one of the most iconic women in film history. Besides her talent as an actress, her image marked an era. The slender, sophisticated figure that Hollywood is used to seeing through its female stars has changed forever since Marilyn. It is impossible to talk about her without remembering the famous scene from The Seven Year Itch, in which her white dress was pulled up and left her legs exposed. This is perhaps one of the most iconic scenes in the history of cinema.
8. Leather jacket Brad Pitt in Fight Club.
Fight Club told a strange, violent story full of dark humor. It was a success at the time, and over the years it has become a modern classic.

Choosing a wardrobe for this character could have been a daunting task for the designers, but they clearly understood what they wanted from them by adding a jacket to him.
9. Susan Sarandon's handkerchief and sunglasses from Thelma and Louise.
Thelma and Louise were one of the greatest successes of the 1990s. The film was considered an important symbol, and many women saw the protagonists as a representation of a new type of woman who rebelled against submission and cruelty. Interpretations aside, the fact that both characters have become movie icons and Louise's scarf and glasses have taken their place on our list.

But let's not forget that The Joker, played by Heath Ledger, was just as important as Batman in this movie. His performance was brilliant and earned him a posthumous Oscar in the Best Supporting Actor category. The character's insane costume is undoubtedly another movie and pop culture icon.
12. Dress by Nastassja Kinski from Paris, Texas.
Paris, Texas is one of the greatest films in film history.
