How flexible is the dress code at your job? If you have a little wiggle room there to express yourself, you might be interested in this new line of Star Wars apparel from Her Universe. It was created in partnership with ThinkGeek with the goal of giving "the Star Wars universe a fitting place in the work wardrobes of fangirls everywhere."
They claim that the line is "appropriate attire for a data entry temp or a senator." First off, if a senator wore one of these pieces to work, that would go a long way towards securing my vote. Though I'm not sure how realistic that statement is. The looks are fairly understated (with the possible exception of the Vader leggings and the R2-D2 print dress and tunic blouse) but your mileage may vary on that. Then again, what do I know? I've been working in my underwear for the last decade.
The collection includes:
• R2-D2 Tank Dress
• Star Wars Ships Blouse
• Star Wars Symbols Blazer
• R2-D2 Print Tunic Blouse
• Star Wars Vader Leggings
• Star Wars Symbols Collard Tank Tunic
• Rebel Alliance Print Infinity Scarf
Check out the gallery to take a closer look at all of the pieces in the collection, then head on over to ThinkGeek to grab your favorites. If you can get away with wearing them at work, it would actually be a pretty affordable option. The entire collection is priced from $24.99-$59.99.
Even if the pieces in this collection don't fit neatly into your company's dress code, you should know that designing nerdy clothing for the office has become popular as of late. Did you know that there is an entire line of Marvel and DC-themed business suits? Oh yes. There are also plenty of options when it comes to ties and cufflinks as well as polos and button down shirts. A company called Hero Within actually specializes in making subtle and sophisticated fandom fashions.
The bottom line is that your attire doesn't need to be drab at work. You can incorporate your fandoms into your workplace attire and maintain a professional look. Hopefully, your boss is cool.
