If you remember The Matrix movie from the late ‘90s (who doesn’t?) then you’ll know the eyewear that made the film such a hit — as well as the long black leather coats, of course! The franchise saw two more movies released after the first and a fourth is now on the way at the end of this year. You know what that means — more shades, more style, and more reasons to look back on the eyewear we love from the movies!
The Matrix stars some of Hollywood’s biggest names such as Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne and the main characters all appear in dark glasses at key points of the film. This is symbolic of them being inside the simulated Matrix world in the movie and the styles are still just as fashionable and futuristic-looking as ever — more than two decades on!
What Style of Sunglasses Do Characters Wear in The Matrix?
When it comes to the types of sunglasses styles in The Matrix series, light-as-air looks are the go-to choice in rimless frames. Take Morpheus (Fishburne), for example… His pair literally looks like it’s floating in thin air and the specs have attracted endless attention from fans. If you like the look, see Chorus or Sun Synapse for something similar.
Characters Neo (Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) have more of a wrapped cat-eye shaped look to their shades. Think Linger from our range and use our Virtual Try-On tool to channel your inner agent. Two of the most iconic characters from all the films are The Twins in the second movie, The Matrix Reloaded. They’d go mad for one of our regular BOGO deals as they’d be able to double up on pairs like Oval.

Which Matrix Sunglasses Will Suit Me?
Of course, the characters in the movie rocked their eyewear inside the simulated world of the Matrix in sleek style, and there’s sure to be plenty more where that came from in the fourth film. But how do you know which pairs will suit you? The good thing is you’ve got so much to choose from and with 14-Day Free Returns, you’re sure to find a pair for your face shape and style.
