Fans looking to dress up with subtle Star Wars attire for the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in mid-December are in for a treat. Hot Topic released a 9-piece fashion collection for both women and men earlier this month, ranging between $30 and $85. Select pieces of the collection are also available at Torrid, while international fans can purchase the collection from EMP.

“You put this jacket on and Senators start tossing alllllll kinds of medals your way,” wrote one customer in her review of the Jyn Rebel Alliance Jacket.

Like the jacket, most of the pieces in the collection don’t scream out Rogue One, but the color palette matches that of the movie and there are subtle hints of Star Wars where it matters most. The buttons on the Open Cardigan and Flight Suit Dress, for example, have the Rebel Alliance symbol, the inner lining of the Jyn Rebel Alliance Jacket has a blueprint of the Death Star, and the Rebel Military Jacket takes inspiration from Cassian Andor’s jacket from the film.

Death Trooper Hooded Sweater

Official description coming soon.

Hot Topic (Coming Soon) | EMP

Personally, I’m a fan of this collection. Earth tone colors are my favorite, so I’m glad that the rebel themed apparel for this movie has continued to steer away from the bright white and orange. It’s also a collection that would appeal to people who aren’t necessarily Star Wars fans. It’s more accessible, so here’s hoping I can add some pieces, specifically the sweaters and the Cassian jacket, to my growing Star Wars themed wardrobe.
