Cut shoulder sleeves are currently trending but complete the look by pairing this frilly top from Marks & Spencer with a white skirt or trousers. Don’t worry, we are sure Princess Leia would approve! From RO16.5.

This is the perfect dress to bring out the Princess Leia in you. The classic turtleneck and bright embellishment right across the body is a fashionable twist on the iconic 1977 dress. Get it at Pretty Eccentric from RO106.

This lace dress from Debenhams is a sweet representation of the feminine side of Princess Leia. With Leia’s signature “cinnamon buns” hairstyle we are sure you can transform yourself into the princess herself and charm your friends over for tea. From RO28.

Who said the fashion of Princess Leia can be confined to exotic or embellished dresses? These pure white trousers from JCPenney might just give you the right spin and help you stand out. From RO6.

We couldn’t find a better pair of footwear than these futuristic boots from Topshop that have all the vibes of Star Wars. We’re certain they would be the first choice for the Princess herself! From RO40.

Princess Leia led the rebel group to fight against the Death Star and save civilisation. These earrings from ASDA, which we fashionably link to the Death Star, is the perfect piece to wear to get into the Star Wars mood. From RO1.4.

May the force be with you in this Princess Leia-inspired Oliver Bonas Taiga textured bangle. From RO30.9 (in stores in April).
