Why Star Wars Will Probably Change How You Dress This Fall

Film’s indisputable influence on fashion trends is one of the most exciting parts of researching trends here at Who What Wear. From Grey Gardens to Belle de Jour to Clueless—iconic movies (and their equally iconic characters) always seem to find their place in fashion, which brings us to the subject of today’s story: Star Wars! Thanks to Preen and Rodarte’s F/W 14 runways, which both showed prints of Star Wars characters, we feel fully justified to indulge our inner space nerds.

?See how our favourite celebs, runways, and style-setters are sporting the futuristic look (and how you can too)!

Style Note: Designers Laura and Kate Mulleavy sent models down the F/W 14 Rodarte runway in Star Wars-printed gowns (think: Luke Skywalker, Yoda, R2D2). Fast forward a couple of months later, and Kirsten Dunst was spotted in this attention-grabbing dress on the Met Gala red carpet.

Style Note: Come fashion month, we suspect Preen’s Darth Vader tops and dresses will invade the street style scene in a huge way, and we have to admit, they’re pretty catchy.
