You’ve been waiting months, years, or even decades for Episode VII to be released and the time has finally come. When The Force Awakens opens on Dec 17th, fans across the globe will gather in force to be reunited with Han Solo, General Leia, and Luke Skywalker. Hopefully you’ve already purchased your tickets and gathered up your friends for a pre-movie celebration. Now for the most important part: what are you going to wear?
Plenty of fans will be cosplaying for the occasion, but for those of us wanting something a bit more subtle, there are more fashion options out there to choose from than ever before. I’ll walk you through some specific ensembles below, but if you want to build your own outfit, think about a few things. Who are you going with? Is this a date? How formal/casual do you want to be? How important is comfort? Do you want to stand out? As always with fashion, your outfit should reflect who you are and what kind of fan you are. Whatever you choose, you’ll be surrounded by your fellow fans, so embrace your inner Sith or Jedi and have fun.
The new Stormtrooper helmets are simply gorgeous and the classic white and black color scheme of their uniforms lend perfectly to a modern look.
