Fandom Fashion Finds: May Picks
Despite May being the month a new Star Wars movie came out, it looks like a lot of the more fashion-forward pieces dropped in April, but there’s still a few good picks. Check them out and more geek fashion below:
Nixon came out with three new watch designs for Solo: A Star Wars Story. My hands-down favorite is the gorgeous Enfys Nest watch ($225). Costume details are subtly incorporated in the design of the watch face and hands.
Also check out Stance’s Lando Calrissian and L3 sock set ($20) as well as their more under-the-radar Solid Trooper socks ($20).
The Her Universe Ahsoka Tano activewear is their best-looking Star Wars activewear yet. Based on a Clone Wars look you’ll find the Ahsoka Tano Sports Bra ($29.90), Ahsoka Active Jacket ($49.90), and Ahsoka Active Capris ($34.90). If they’re sold out there, check Hot Topic.
Target has a cool dress for younglings that incorporates opening scroll text: Star Wars Rebel Logo Skater Dress ($19.99). They also have a kids’ Star Wars Short Sleeve Henley Shirt ($12.99) that has the trails of various ships forming its stripes.
Retrospective has a new Leia nightshirt ($42). Find it at Nordstrom.
Musterbrand released a Han Solo jacket ($399.99) in the style of the one he wears in The Force Awakens. It’s also available in Disney Parks.
ICYMI Po-Zu came out with convertible Luke boots. My article has more details on the design. I also recently reviewed Po-Zu’s unisex Millennium Falcon shoes.
