How to Look Like You Just Stepped Out of ‘The Matrix’

Keanu Reeves is everywhere lately. (Thanks, Always Be My Maybe.) And his character Neo from The Matrix is serving as a surprising fashion muse with It girls like Bella Hadid copying his signature style. People are stomping the streets looking like the hero and his partner Trinity thanks to sleek all-black looks, plenty of vinyl, leather and futuristic sunglasses. So why the obsession? Since everything from the 90s and early 2000s is proving popular once again, it makes sense that this pinnacle film would serve as inspo. And it doesn’t hurt that patent leather and vinyl were already trending, not to mention sci-fi sunglasses. It’s also no coincidence that the original film that launched a franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and casting has already begun for The Matrix 4.

So now is the perfect time to reload your wardrobe with these cool clothes inspired by The Matrix. Wear them together for some sci-fi realness or break them up to make them work in “the real world.”
