Exploring the Wardrobes of the Most Loathsome Officers in a Galaxy Far, Far Away….
We love Star Wars™ villains and we are proud to offer the impeccable command and authority suited only for the Imperial Officers of the Galactic Empire to you! If you’ve ever wanted to be the baddy but didn’t want to don the armor, the Imperial Officer ensemble is the easiest go-to. But, you’ve probably wondered, what do all the colors mean? Is there a right or wrong way of assembling this costume? Are there characters I can emulate?
Here are some examples of how you can dress like an Imperial Officer:
Olive/Gray Uniforms (Senior Officers including Grand Moff™)
Olive/Gray is probably one of the most recognizable colors of the Imperial officer. This color is seen on high-ranking officers that command both the Naval and Armed Forces. Donned by many officials including Admiral Ozzel™, Admiral Piett™, and Admiral Motti™. Perhaps the best-known officer in Olive/Gray is Grand Moff Tarkin™ who commands the dreaded Death Star™ in Star Wars: A New Hope™.
Black Uniforms (Junior Level Officers)
Seen to the same extent as their olive gray counterparts, Imperial Officers in black are junior level officers mostly seen on installations or starships. As seen in Star Wars: A New Hope, some of the most notable black uniformed officers were the Death Star prison officers who fought Luke Skywalker™, Han Solo™, and Chewbacca™.
Grand Admiral Uniform
In Star Wars Rebels™, the main antagonist of Season 3 is Grand Admiral Thrawn™. This Imperial villain was a male Chiss™, with striking blue skin, red eyes, and an angular face, known for his brilliant strategic mind and ruthlessness. He was determined to “pull the Rebels apart piece by piece.” His uniform features the striking off-white Admiral tunic and black pants combination plus his Grand Admiral badge which features blue, yellow and blue buttons.

Director Krennic™ Uniform
Thanks to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the combination of white tunic, black pants and hat combination has garnered a lot of attention. This look is seen on high-ranking officers like Director Orson Krennic™ and other Imperial Security Bureau officers. Krennic makes his ensemble unique with the addition of a long, dramatic cape. His rank badge, that of an Admiral, features six red buttons on the top row and six blue buttons on the bottom row.
