Tatooine

Life on the outer rim of space is hard. As former Tatooine resident Luke Skywalker once said, it's the farthest planet from the bright center of the universe. The landscape is hot, sandy, and unforgiving, and the locals are a rough bunch.

It doesn't have to all bad, though! The desert planet has a lot to offer, including a unique farming economy and high-stakes sports entertainment. If you decide to make Tatooine your new home in a galaxy far, far away, you'll have to change your wardrobe accordingly.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Tatooine is a somewhat lawless planet. It has very little senate or imperial involvement because of its remote location. The ideal resident values privacy and can fend for themselves.
  • Much of the day-to-day goings on are controlled by the crime lord Jabba the Hutt. It's also the original home of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, and both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Han Solo have spent considerable time there.
  • When it comes to life on Tatooine, every decision you make has to be about beating the heat. Tatooine has two suns and no shade, so sunburns and heatstroke are no laughing matter. Light fabrics, big hats and open toes are the way to go!

Moisture Farming

To stay alive, you'll need to find a way to make money fast. Try moisture farming, an easy source of income due to the planet's dry climate. A farm can be run by just a handful of people, so it's the perfect choice for a new business.

A tan dress is perfect for moisture farming!

This outfit is lightweight and perfect for a day spent working in the heat. The color will keep you camouflaged from Sand People, but if you're discovered, the practical flats will help you in a fight. 

Keep from burning under the suns with a cute, wide-brimmed hat, and finish things off with a pair of colorful earrings to liven up your monochrome surroundings. Don't forget the sunscreen!

Mos Eisley

In the words of the late, great Obi-Wan Kenobi, "you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." The Mos Eisley cantina and the surrounding space port are not for the timid, with shoot-outs and limb amputation occurring regularly.

The area also happens to boast some of the only decent nightlife on Tatooine, so you'll have to take what you can get. The cantinas and bars may be dangerous, but they're also lively and eventful!

Clubbing in outer space!

Product information: Leggings, Tank, Shoes, Ring, Jacket, Necklace

Start out your evening look with a pair of sexy leggings that match the gold color palette of your surroundings. Pair them with a sleek black tank for an out-of-this world look.

Adding a biker jacket kills two birds with one stone. It makes you look tough, which will ward off aliens looking for a bar fight, and it will keep you warm when the desert cools down at night. Don't forget some themed bling, like this "T" ring for Tatooine or a lightsaber-inspired necklace.

Podracing

Besides the shady nightlife, there isn't too much to do on the relatively barren planet, but sports fans shouldn't have trouble finding entertainment. That's because the planet has a state-of-the-art arena for podracing, a popular, dangerous, and potentially lucrative sport. Think NASCAR, but with a lot more violence and hover cars.

An athletic look for podracing!

Product information: Jacket, Glasses, Leggings, Sneakers, Tank

For your first podrace, wear a sporty tank top and a track jacket to protect your body from the wind. Most podracers emit a noticeable beam of purple energy, so match that with these colorful leggings. 

Podracers usually wear goggles, but you can recreate that look with oversized shades. Add sturdy shoes and you're ready to become an intergalactic athlete!
