There is something about oval sunglasses that makes you feel effortlessly cool. It must have something to do with The Matrix. I remember seeing that film for the first time and being in awe of the leather trench coats, the monochromatic black outfits and the sunglasses that were worn in almost every fighting scene.
The oval sunglasses were the standouts for me, giving each character an air of confidence and power. Both Neo and Trinity had a black oval-shaped sunglasses with Morpheus taking it even further with a rimless and armless design.
If you wore a full matrix inspired look today, you probably would be greeted with baffled stares, but if you just took the shades, you would be at the forefront of this seasons sunglasses trend. The circular frames are a stylish way to inject a retro feel into your look, protecting your eyes in style. The trend has two key shapes. The first, a 90’s inspired oval shape, with metal frames.
The second shape is 60’s inspired, with a rounded acetate frame in a variety of colour combinations.
