Top Gun Hat
If you're going to dress up as a witch, you need a pointy hat and if you want to dress as a king you're going to need a crown! Sometimes hats are the key accessory which completes the whole ensemble, and Top Gun costumes aren't any different. If you want to look like a believable fighter pilot, we definitely recommend wearing a baseball-style hat. The curved brim will keep the sun out of your eyes which is imperative since you'll be soaring so close to the sun. Plus, this particular Top Gun hat features a circular patch on front that says “Unites States Navy Fighter Weapons School,” so this hat will also add an authentic touch to your costume!
In the same vein as a Top Gun baseball hat, aviator sunglasses are a must if you plan on wearing a Top Gun jumpsuit or dress because the stylish shades will keep the sun out of your eyes while you're swiftly maneuvering through the blue skies. Not only are these glasses affordable and stylish, but they will also make your costume look official. If you can remember, Maverick, Goose, and Iceman all wore these types of shades because they make everyone look cool and they're especially effect for Naval Aviators or people who are just dressing as Naval Aviators! Avert any crisis situation and make sure that these glasses are on your face at all times. Yes, even when you land your jet to go hang out with your fellow high-flying buddies at the party!

This fashionable jacket is famous for its ribbed collar, cuffs, and short hemline. It's safe to say that this type of jacket looks stylish on all different body types, so we would recommend wearing one with your Top Gun themed costume. Not only will the coat add some pizzazz to your overall look, but you'll also stay nice and warm while you're out on the town. This particular bomber jacket has a faux fur collar and a shiny brown outer shell. You'll especially love the patches on the jacket because they say, “Top Gun,” “Maverick,” and “United States Weapons School.” Plus, you can wear this cool bomber with any pilot costume or you can just wear it when you're hanging out on a chilly day. Just grab your aviators and strike a fierce pose and you'll look exactly like one of the students from the Navy's Fighter Weapons School!
Women's Militia Boots
Ladies, you can be pilots too, and the best news of all is that you don't have to give up your cute footwear in order to do so! You can do aerial tricks and other reckless stunts while you're soaring through the air, but now you can also look stylish while you're at it. Usually Naval pilots wear combat boots when they're handling an aircraft, but now you can start a new trend for all the high-flying females out there! You can wear these women's militia boots whenever you're suited up in your Top Gun costume and you'll easily command any runway.

Best Top Gun Quotes
The dialogue in Top Gun makes us want to speak in code with walky-talkies. Of course, we want to say things like “do a 4g negative dive with a MiG 28,” but we guess that we'll just play it safe for now and stick to speaking in well-know texting lingo. However, while you're in full costume, if you want to really get into character, we definitely recommend repeating some of the famous lines from the popular movie. For your convenience, we've listed below some of the most iconic lines from the film spoken by Maverick, Iceman, Goose, and Hollywood. These lines are easily recognized by Top Gun fans everywhere!
