We absolutely loved the line that came out in 2016 designed by Leetal Platt & Kelly Cercone (the winners of the 2015 Her Universe & Hot Topic Fashion Show and Competition at San Diego Comic Con) for Her Universe and Hot Topic… and since many of the pieces are still available at Hot Topic and Torrid we wanted to give them their due praise (especially since you can nab them while they are on sale).
In this blog we will be featuring the Kylo Ren Dress and The Captain Phasma Jacket. Both pieces are modeled by the gorgeous Kat Andrusco.
The Kylo Ren Dress
The Kylo Ren dress has so much to talk about — The top of the dress mimics the sleeves of Kylo Ren’s Coat from The Force Awakens but also works with the skirt to form the lines of his iconic triple ended light saber. The skirt is asymmetrical and goes for that high-low look and has 2 layers a red silky layer and a black sheer outer skirt.
Time for a moment of truth – when this line was launched I wasn’t super excited about this dress but upon trying it on I was so surprised with how flattering it actually was on all body types I had seen both Ashley Eckstein and Leetal Platt wearing it but to actually see it on curvy bodies I was shocked how good it looks. I will note that the red under skirt is not very forgiving though so I suggest wearing shape wear like spanx or control top tights or hose underneath – because if nothing else you will most likely be able to spot a belly button through it.
Accessories for this look:
Darth Vader Necklace from Amazon
Star Wars Sparkly Hair Clip by Accessories by Nerd Girl Britt
The Captain Phasma Jacket
I immediately fell in love with this jacket the moment I first tried it on… the lining is so buttery soft and the silver sheen over the faux leather is so edgy and yet super cute. I have worn this jacket so much it’s ridiculous. I have worn it to red carpet events and also took it traveling to Japan. It’s super flattering and can be worn open, zipped partially, or zipped all the way up and buttons.
