Calling all movie lovers. With the highly anticipated releases of Greta Gerwig’s "Barbie" and Christopher Nolan’s "Oppenheimer," cinema enthusiasts—and seemingly everyone under the sun, including, yes, golfers—have taken style inspirations from these two summer blockbusters.

Dressers of all kinds have wholeheartedly dipped their wardrobes in the splashy magentas and funky prints of the beloved (or passionately hated) plastic perfect that is the Barbie doll, brought to life this summer by Margot Robbie, who, as it happens, is no stranger to the golf course. In fact, the Australian Hall of Famer Jan Stephenson has reportedly said that she and Robbie have talked about her playing Stephenson in a movie. (Casual.)

Meanwhile, the fictionalized biopic centering around the creator of the atomic bomb has many embracing retro, 1940s sleek silhouettes and neutral palettes.

To make the most of this wild cultural moment, we’ve rounded up a list of fabulous, and dare we say hilarious, ways you can rep your love for “Barbie,” or “Oppenheimer,” (or both) on the course. Oh, and, to make this even more fun, we’ve offered unisex and matching options for your perusal, so you can gather all the Barbies and Kens in your life and play a highly fashionable, highly memorable summer round.
