Today’s review features the Loungefly x Star Wars The Last Jedi X-Wing Fighter scarf. Inspired by Art Deco style, the scarf features X-Wing Fighter silhouettes in a repeating yellow-tone pattern against a black background. I absolutely love this print, so the scarf was on my wishlist the moment I saw it!
Whether you’re trying to blow up the Death Star at the Battle of Yavin or at the Battle of Endor, or you’re battling the First Order, show your support of the Rebel troops with this Star Wars X-Wing Fighter Art Deco Lightweight Scarf. Its sheer design mimics the emptiness of space, where the X-wing is at its best, shooting down TIE fighters. Don’t forget your astromech droid co-pilot!
The scarf is priced at US$19.99 each, but it is currently on sale for only US$12.99 each! ThinkGeek can ship internationally, which is great!

The scarf came packaged in a long clear plastic bag. Inside, the scarf was held in a loop with a black cardboard tag. The tag is printed with the Star Wars and Disney logos, as well as the scarf measurements on the front, while the back of the tag includes the barcode and manufacturer information.
As noted on the tag, this scarf is made by Loungefly. While they are primarily known for their range of handbags and wallets, Loungefly also makes a range of Star Wars accessories including scarves, earrings, and even hair brushes!
The Star Wars X-Wing Art Deco scarf is made from 100% black polyester, with a yellow toned repeating print of X-Wing Fighters. The fabric is lightweight, and see-through. The scarf feels nice and soft against your skin when worn, as you would expect. This is a rectangular (oblong) shaped scarf, which is one length of fabric – it is not sewn in a loop like an infinity-style scarf.
The scarf print design is Art Deco inspired, featuring the silhouettes of X-Wing fighters inside a square, with smaller squares and parallel lines in a symmetrical pattern.
When I first saw this scarf online, I originally wished it was a gold foil print. Gold and black really fits the Art Deco style – but then I remembered the issues I had with my older Star Wars silver foil print scarf. The foil print was unfortunately easy to damage – now that I can see this lovely print in person, I am happy that it is not foil. As the print is part of the fabric (not printed on top like foil), it will last much better – and I know I’ll be wearing this scarf a lot!
When layered up, you can see the pattern repeated, as the lightweight fabric is see-through. The print isn’t a flat colour – the design has a gradient effect, with yellow fading to white and back again. As the scarf is made from printed fabric (not printed on top), the pattern is the same on both sides of the fabric, there is no ‘wrong side’ – always useful with scarves, as the underside often shows when worn.
In a single layer, the fabric appears lighter, especially against a white background as seen here. As scarves are usually worn bunched together, the fabric becomes much darker in appearance when worn around the neck.
The edges are all hemmed neatly – the edges are turned over twice and stitched down with black thread. There is a small black fabric tag sewn into the lower side seam at one end – the tag features the Star Wars and Lucasfilm copyright information, the Loungefly logo, fabric composition (100% polyester), and garment care instructions (hand wash).
The measurements given for the scarf are 44″ wide and 72″ high. I find this is large enough to wear as a wrap or swimwear cover-up, giving you a few different outfit options. I quite often wear my Star Wars rectangular scarves as shoulder wraps over a dress – this scarf will look great with a black dress.
If the pattern seems familiar, that’s because you may have seen it before – it also appears in the lining of the Loungefly Canto Bight handbag! As the bag and scarf are both made by Loungefly, it isn’t surprising that they use the same pattern design. I love matching accessories, and these two make a great set – you can buy them together at ThinkGeek!
I love the Art Deco style, so this scarf was a must-have – and it matches my handbag! Most of my other Star Wars fashion scarves feature Star Wars symbols or characters – I quite like the subtle silhouettes used in this design. When watching The Last Jedi, I was really hoping we would see fashion inspired by the styles of Canto Bight – I just love seeing the combination of Art Deco style with Star Wars themes!
