10 Best Outfits In Star Trek, Ranked
When there's an episodic franchise like Star Trek with several series under its belt, there's a lot that's happened over the years. That also includes a lot of fashion changes and cultural development over time, too. This functional universe has had countless different species, cultures, art-forms, and of course memorable looks over the decades. However, only some of those styles can really be the best of the best, defining characters, subplots, and more.
Star Trek may be better known for absurd looks, but let's look at the outfit stars of the show.
Here are the 10 Best Outfits in Star Trek, Ranked.
10 DS9 Holodeck Costumes
While every series had amazing holodeck costumes, few were as mesmerizing as DS9's. There were people in viking outfits, James Bond knock-offs, old Vegas dolling up, renaissance garb; there were so many amazing looks. Moreover, DS9 had one of the most interactive aliens that got involved in the holodeck. Let's just say, seeing Garak look all dapper as a spy in a suit was a 10/10 experience.
DS9 really spoiled its fans with fun, diverse holodeck experiences. Even in infamous episodes like "Take Me Out To The Holosuite", everyone impressed in classic baseball gear. It was even better to see some Ferengi rocking it. Any fan would love to take part in a DS9 holodeck adventure.
9 The Kirk V-Neck
There are few Star Trek looks as classic as the Kirk V-Neck. Sure, the original mustard uniform is stellar. However, Kirk cannot wear anything better than this fabulous green v-neck. It really spoke to him as a person, refined and detailed but still a little sexy. It's no wonder so many women couldn't resist this alluring captain.
Sure, maybe it wasn't Starfleet regulation, but Kirk deserves a medal for this shirt. It's an instant classic. As one of the most rebellious captains ever, it really fit him as a person. If only fans got to see even more of it.
8 Klingon Armor
Star Trek has a lot of classic cultural looks. The Romulans are so distinct and Starfleet uniforms will always warm fans' hearts. However, few cultures have awesome gear like the Klingons. Their armor sets are some of the coolest parts of Star Trek wear. Even when in diplomatic situations, this war-like culture is always decked out in elaborate battle garb. It really sets them apart as a people and always makes an impression when they enter a room.
They just look like they can beat up anyone they see. Klingons may be brutish, but whoever designed this armor deserves some serious props.
7 Lwaxana Troi In "Menage E Troi"
Lwaxana Troi is known for her elaborate and overwhelming outfits. After all, she couldn't wear clothes any less loud than her. That would be atrocious. While there are so many candidates for amazing looks from, the winner from her has to come from her first appearance in "Menage E Troi".
Sure, fans could easily pick that time she scared off a husband by going naked to the wedding. However, between her black and gold dress that attracted the leering Ferengi, her pink picnic outfit, or her alluring green dress. Lwaxana knocked it out of the park and deserves all the fashion credit.
6 Worf And Jadzia's Wedding Outfits
Other than their battle garb, fans don't get to see much Klingon fashion. That is, if there really is much more to Klingon fashion. Either way, when Jadzia and Worf got married, they had a classic Klingon wedding. The entire thing was drenched in beautiful candlelight and classic Klingon artifacts. However, nothing was as impressive as Worf and Jadzia's wedding outfits. They wore beautiful, silky formalwear of red, black, and gold. Even better, they both seemed to have gold crowns for the ceremony.
For such a violent people, the wedding was opulent, elaborate, and fashionable. The couple really had an astounding wedding and they were the beautiful center of it all.
5 The Captains' Robes
One of the most iconic part of each captain is the fact that all of them seem to have sensual, silky robes. In particular, Picard and Janeway really loved their soft nightwear and robes. Both captains look fabulous and elegant in their looks. For two captains that are normally pretty serious and stern, it's fascinating that they both shrug off the captain's jacket for something so much softer at the end of the day.
For anyone lucky enough to catch these leaders looking so beautiful and handsome in their quarters, they should feel honored. These outfits are truly a gift, even if Picard's come with his infamous short shorts oftentimes.
4 Anything K'Ehleyr Wore
During TNG, Worf had a beautiful half-Klingon girlfriend, K'Ehleyr. He wanted to marry her, but she didn't want to pause her life for romance. The important part, though, is that K'Ehleyr's fashion was always on point. Whether it was her fitted ambassador suit or her Klingon armor, her outfits were great and she wore them so well. They all were dark black, browns, or reds, fitting her no-nonsense personality. Somehow they all still looked amazing, though.
Fans only got to see K'Ehleyr a couple of times, but each visit to the Enterprise was a treat. Seeing a powerful, non-Starfleet woman around was fantastic.
3 Seven/Troi's Starfleet Uniforms
One of Star Trek's greatest costume sins was the way it treated the women on the show. For most of their run, Seven of Nine and Deanna Troi were fitted in nonsensical catsuits and dresses instead of Starfleet uniforms or practical wear. When in their final seasons TNG and Voyager moved away from that, it was one of the best fashion choices the shows ever made. Troi always deserved a proper science officer uniform and Seven of Nine never made sense in a catsuit.
For female fans and fashion alike, these are two of the most important outfits in the entire franchise.
2 Phillipa Georgiou In Section 31
In Discovery, the mirror universe version of Philippa Georgiou switched dimensions. Unlike many Mirror Universe counterparts, though, Georgiou didn't cause complete havoc. Instead, she actually ended up joining Section 31 and assisting them in all their background dealings. Maybe Section 31 has always been sorta sketchy, but at least they look good doing it.
That all-black look that Georgiou has is fire. Not only does she look tough and intimidating, but she also looks pretty smokin'. For such a shady group, they have amazing clothes. Section 31 deserves so much credit for that.
1 Admiral Wear
Call it cliche, but still, nothing beats the formal elegance of Admiral wear. Starfleet really knocked it out of the park with the crossover look it always uses for its formal and admiral uniforms. Not only does it make the rank more impressive, but it makes the characters that achieved the status feel so much more accomplished.
It would be easy to say Starfleet uniforms in general, but no way. Those are the default in Starfleet. But those snazzy Admiral jackets? They deserve all the credit for being the greatest looking styles in Star Trek. Even though Kirk got demoted, Janeway rebelled, Picard quit, and Sisko disappeared before he could get it, these heroes will always be remembered.
