'Star Wars' Collection From Hot Topic & Her Universe Is Geek-Chic Done Right — PHOTOS
You won't have to wait a long time in a galaxy far far away for these fabulous fashion picks. Hot Topic launched a Star Wars clothing line with Her Universe, and the outfits are more high fashion than you might think. It's been a while since geek-chic was done right, so this is kind of a big deal.
The excitement started with CoverGirl's Star Wars makeup line and continued with an out-of-this-world Irregular Choice shoe line, and now the force is awakening yet again with this fashion range, which Racked describes as featuring "white princess-y Leia dresses and Nasty Gal-esque little black Darth Vader cape dresses." What could possibly be more perfect? This is an awesome way to show your love of the franchise without having to compromise your style. No graphic tees and character-themed hoodies here! This line is pure fan fashion.
"There is definitely a need for geek chic, not just as a fashion trend but it’s also an under-served market," Her Universe founder and designer Ashley Eckstein tells WWD.
Whether you're swinging a red, blue, or green lightsaber, Her Universe has something for you. The collection is filled with caped dresses, chic bomber jackets, and even some sweaters. Every piece is priced under $100 and designs come in sizes ranging from XS to 3X. Be prepared to feel the force with these fabulous new looks.
