As Star Wars fans, we hardly need a reason to model our outfits after the series’ heroes. As a proud owner of Han-inspired striped trousers, a gauzy Rey shirt, and what I lovingly call my “Kylo Ren Jacket,” I proudly rock Star Wars style as often as I can. When a day like May the 4th comes along, however, it’s time to go all out.
Drawing inspiration from the films, old and new, we’ve arranged some everyday outfit sets to inspire your own look for Star Wars Day—or any time you’re feeling the Force.
Top: John Lewis; Jacket: Kim MA1; Jeans: Abercrombie; Shoes: Zara; Bag: Timbuk2; Ring: J.C. Penney; Bracelet: J.C. Penney; Phone Case: Casetify; Polish: Lancome
For a scruffy-looking nerf-herder, Han sure has a signature style. For this outfit set, we’ve assembled the essentials, from inspired-boots—as sparkling as Solo’s personality—to some rebel branded accessories.
Cardigan: Choies; Top: Theory; Jeans: Balenciaga; Shoes: New Balance; Bag: Small Box Leather; Phone Case: Casetify; Earrings: J.C. Penney; Coin Purse: Loungefly
Donning a borrowed jacket and remnants from his storm trooper uniform, Finn’s style is defined by its minimalism. Here, we follow suit by pairing a simple crew neck top with jeans, and a cardigan reminiscent of Poe’s leather coat. The coin purse and phone case shoutout his past life as FN-2187, while the leather bucket bag skews more towards the light side’s rugged aesthetic.
Top: Equipment Bette; Jacket: Rebecca Minkoff; Leggings: Madewell; Shoes: ACNE; Bag: Guess; Earrings: Kohls; Lipstick: MAC; Phone Case: Casetify
Say what you will about Kylo’s temper and allegiances to the dark side, there’s no denying his elegant fashion choices. For a Kylo-inspired look, try pairing ribbed leather articles of clothing (like this coat and clutch) with a long top to mimic his sleek silhouette.
Top: River Island; Vest: LE3NO; Jeans: Land’s End; Shoes: Frye; Glasses: Ray Ban; Earrings: J.C. Penney; Backpack: Kinglake; Belt: Max Studio
Though she may be best known for her white gown in A New Hope, we think there’s a lot more to Leia’s style. For this Leia-on-Endor inspired look, we’ve mixed rugged pieces—including leather boots and a cargo vest—with minimalist details. The subtle rebel earrings are one of our favorites.
Top: JCREW; Jeans: Madewell; Shoes: Romwe; Bracelets: Collection by Hayley; Scarf: LuxuryDivas; Phone Case: Casetify; Backpack: Etsy; Belt: Barbara Bui Yoko; Glasses: Ray Ban
Given that our first glimpse of Rey is her scavenging on Jakku, it is only fitting that a Rey-inspired outfit set would feature a mix of functional basics with bohemian accents. We’ve replaced her goggles with these tortoise sunglasses and found a distressed messenger bag reminiscent of the one she carries in the film.
