Jacket: A glossyblack trench coat is a given when it comes to channeling the sci-fi vibe of the famous film.

Shoes: Wrap up the look by sporting a pair of leather boots.
Accessories: Of course, tiny shades are a must to complete The Matrix look. Add a pair of silver hoops as a finishing touch, and you’re ready to go.
