Star Wars: Dress like Rey with official The Force Awakens fashion line

Amongst all the many, many incredible things to admire about Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Rey; that stylishly minimalist, yet durable wardrobe is pretty highly covetable. Come on, it's got sand-coloured capris so you can beat your enemies into the dirt without worrying about ruining your look, with some extra-flowing bits to blow dramatically in the wind; how more perfect an outfit can you get!

Well, now's your chance to take Rey's own look home with you; with US retailer Hot Topic introducing an exclusive new fashion line based on the characters of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It's the latest in the company's push towards creating unique, female-targeted pieces based on all of their favourite properties; following a DC Women collection giving the likes of Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn a retro spin, as well as a line of dresses based off all five seasons of American Horror Story.

The collection was created in tandem with Her Universe, which specialises in creating comics and sci-fi inspired gear; from Thor sailor dresses to an Eleventh Doctor-inspired Doctor Who look; with the winners of a fashion design competition held at last year's San Diego Comic-Con putting together The Force Awakens collection.

What's so fantastic about the line is the range of inspirations on show here; the Rey Cardigan or the Phasma Jacket take only subtle hints from the characters' costumes, or there's a pretty great replica of Poe/Finn's Jacket or a BB-8 styled dress if you're just wanting to fully geek out.

The collection is now available to purchase on Hot Topic's website.
