If there's one thing in this world that connects us all, it's our universal love for the Star Wars universe. With the release of The Force Awakens , many people have been taking their fandom and love for the franchise to their closets, where Star Wars themed clothing is currently all the rage.
Whether you're like me and you've been a part of the Star Wars fan club for years, or you're a bright-and-shiny newcomer, one thing remains certain: We love Star Wars. We love it so much, in fact, that buying Star Wars-themed toys, costumes, and posters just isn't enough. We also want to wear our passion for the galaxy on our sleeves.
The profound love so many of us have for Star Wars was recently proven when The Force Awakens became the highest grossing film of all time. With its incredible popularity on-screen also came Star Wars clothing, with companies like Forever21 and Hot Topic launching Star Wars collections. Geek Chic has been in for years, whereby fashion has taken inspo from nerd culture and meshed it with all things sartorial. And Star Wars definitely falls into that category.
Personally, I have been delighting in all the proud #geekgirls I'm seeing on Instagram showing off their amazing Star Wars-themed outfits. So why don't we take a look at 41 individuals totally rocking The Force?

Get creative, have fun playing in your closet, and may The Force be with you.
