Dress Like Your Favorite Star Wars Character in Real Life

I love Star Wars. And I’m not alone. It is one of the most beloved, cherished, shared and watched films, like, ever. It has a cult-like following that spans generations, and for good reason. It’s storytelling, fantasy and superior filmmaking at its best. One thing that really has made an impact is the aesthetic and style of the film, especially the very iconic outfits the characters wear in the film. So you know what? We put together a collection of Star Wars-inspired outfits to be worn in real life from the original Star Wars (or Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope as the kids call it these day). Which is your favorite?
