Star Wars Menswear: Summer 2019 Edition | Anakin and His Angel

It's been quite a hot Summer so far here in Southern California which means keeping cool is essential. Today I've rounded up several warm weather pieces for my fanboys out there who feel like representing their fandom in the sun. Of course, there's no rule saying my lady friends can't pick up anything they fancy. Stay tuned for my Summer-themed Womenswear post which will also be up this month!

Musterbrand | $29.99

If you haven't gone swimming yet, these Kylo Ren boardshorts will give you a reason to. The design is super slick and menacing! They have quick-drying features and a built in pocket which I'm sure make them First Order approved. You can find them in sizes XS - XXL. If you're not so much of a baddie the Rebel Pilot Boardshorts might be more up your street.

Whad'Ya Know? A Star Wars product featuring Chewbacca and several Porgs where he ISN'T trying to eat them! This tropical inspired Star Wars t-shirt is perfect for the current season and it's 100% cotton which means it's extra comfortable. It is available in sizes XS - XXL. I've already seen multiple people sporting this shirt at Disneyland so don't wait too long to pick this one up!

Sometimes carrying a backpack when you're outside in the heat is just too much. However, you might be having fun outdoors somewhere and still find yourself in need of carrying a few basic items. This C-3PO cinch bag is not only a fantastic design but also small enough to easily carry around with you all day if needed. Plus, you can't go wrong with free shipping and returns! You can also find an R2-D2 cinch bag here!

Kohl's | $15.00

I've seen a few fanboys wearing this shirt including my brother, and I finally found it! Isn't it great? I like the mix of characters which includes Darth Vader, a classic Stormtrooper, a Scout Trooper and Boba Fett. This would be great to wear to the D23 Expo in August!

Speaking of Boba Fett...

This cardholder featuring the infamous colors of everyone's favorite Bounty Hunter is stylish and practical. Men, I've seen some of your wallets and I don't know how you walk around with those things in your pocket! Give yourself a break when you're out and about this Summer and carry only what you need. Maybe it'll even inspire to downsize your everyday wallet too!

Heroes & Villains | $25.00

If you're not one to wear sunglasses or maybe you just really like hats, this Scout Trooper dad hat would be the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Not only is it simple and cool but it'll go with just about anything. Plus, it's adjustable which will help you to achieve the perfect fit. There's not a whole lot of shade at Galaxy's Edge so if you're planning a trip this Summer a Star Wars hat would be a good accessory to consider.

Tell me, which of these is your favorite? Let me know in a comment below or get in touch with me on Twitter. Stay tuned for the next round-up this Fall!

Smuggler's Bounty: Darth Vader Unboxing

Thursday, July 11, 2019


This month's Smuggler's Bounty box, the only official Star Wars subscription box by Funko, features our favorite Sith Lord, Darth Vader. That's right! Every single item inside this box is Darth Vader themed. I loved everything but one item in this box and was thrilled that another shirt was included. That's two boxes in a row! There is also something new inside that Funko has never done before which is fun. Watch our unboxing video above and let me know in a comment below or in a Tweet if you also got this box and what your favorite item was!

The Smuggler's Bounty boxes ship out every other month and August's theme is Podracing so be sure to subscribe for $29.99 before it's too late. I think it would be incredible to see a Funko Pop version of Anakin Skywalker in his Podracer for this box and maybe a Sebulba t-shirt! I would even appreciate a Qui-Gon Pop where he is wearing his poncho and holding a chance cube. I feel like if they went that route, Anakin would have to be featured on a shirt or something. He can't be left out! What other ideas do you have for this box?

Style Wars: Tano Trend

Style Wars: Tano Trend | Anakin and His Angel

Style Wars is an original quarterly series that is a combination of both Jenmarie and Mollie's two favorite passions - Star Wars and fashion. Together they will be styling Star Wars outfits based off of the same fashion piece. Their mission for this series is to show off how different fangirls envision outfitting Star Wars clothes in their own unique way. Instead of comparing who wore it best, they want to celebrate the different ways Star Wars pieces can be worn.


Style Wars: Tano Trend | Anakin and His Angel

Mollie Damon of Star Wars Explained and I are back from our little break but I'm sure you'll find that it was worth the wait! In this new installment of Style Wars, we chose the brilliantly designed Tano Long-Sleeve Shirt by Daniel Kennedy for Her Universe which debuted at Star Wars Celebration Chicago earlier this year. According to Ashley Eckstein herself, no other fashion piece has sold as quickly as this one has from any other line! The shirt has already been re-stocked twice and there are plans for another so be sure to follow Her Universe on all of their social media platforms for updates.

WHAT JENMARIE WORE:

Tano Shirt: Her Universe
Wild Fable Skirt: Target
Open Toe Pumps: Target
Ahsoka Pin: Black Series Rebels
Clutch: Old Navy (Similar)

Ahsoka Tano is one of my favorite characters so there was no question on whether or not I would purchase this shirt. I needed it in my closet! I love the bright but simplistic design and how comfortable it is to wear. I would definitely suggest sticking to your usual size as it does run a bit big. I'm wearing an XS and it's actually quite long on me (I even have to roll the sleeves up when I wear it). But I honestly think with a bit of tucking in, the oversized look works really well! My aim in styling this outfit was to show you how this top can be worn during the Summer. I paired it with a distressed black denim skirt and black open toe pumps and honestly felt ready to take on Maul! As for accessories, I kept them quite simple. I wore an Ahsoka Tano silhouette pin by my friends over at Black Series Rebels on my skirt and opted for a white perforated clutch. This is easily an outfit I would wear multiple times!

Oh, and if you're wondering about my little plush friend Morai, my friend Nancy picked her up from SWCC for me and mailed her my way. She asked to be part of this photoshoot and I couldn't say no.

WHAT MOLLIE WORE:

Tano Shirt: Her Universe
Wild Fable Shorts: Target
Jedi Necklace: Amazon
Star Wars Adidas: Poshmark

Getting my hands on this shirt ended up being way more difficult than I expected! When I saw that this shirt (designed my my friend Daniel Kennedy) was going to debut at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, I KNEW I had to get one! My size sold out the same day it was released so I had to wait for it to re-stock online. While we were out of town on vacation, Jenmarie was SO sweet to keep an eye out and snagged one for me online when they finally re-stocked and mailed it to me! I love the design and how it fits loose enough to be comfortable but you can also tie the back or tuck it in for a more fitted look.

I wanted to do some sort of makeup look featuring the colors of the shirt so I applied a wash of bright orange shadow on the lid, white on the inner corner and blue liner on my bottom lash line with a bit of a graphic line to give it more of an Ahsoka vibe.

I paired the shirt with white jean shorts, a Jedi emblem necklace with a small rhinestone and a pair of orange limited edition Star Wars Adidas sneakers - the whole look matched head to toe!


What do you think of these outfits we styled? Please let Mollie and I know in a comment below or connect with us on Twitter or Instagram. Thank you all for your support of this fashion series. We will see you again in October!
