    I've been thinking about how it seems that all of Leia's outfits serves a purpose for every scene they're in:

    For example in ROTJ:
    - Boussh Disguise: To sneak into Jabba's palace unrecognised and rescue Han.
    - Slave: To humiliate Leia.
    - Commando: Behind enemy lines commando raid mission.
    - Ewok Dress: Present from the ewoks for helping them.

    Now for TFA:
    - Resistance Outfit: She's the leader.
    - Ceremonial: This one I have no idea about. She wears it for just the scene where she's saying goodbye to Rey.

    Leia's outfits are made of cloth. They cover her body to prevent her nudity, as that is percieved as "rude" in most civilised societies. Except Sweden (joking!).
    Clothing also serves as a thermal and radiation barrier to prevent both frostbite and sunburn.

    possibly a dress that signifies mourning?
    or she is off to plead her case against the First Order with whatever may be left of the New Republic and needs to look "senatorial"?

    i'm more inclined to believe the former than the latter, but these are two possibilities.

    I don't think there is any particular meaning to Leia's clothes. She wore what was necessary for the story, just like with every other character.

    Off-topic, but I'm Swedish and that is incredibly false, female nudity is considered very offensive against women in Sweden nowadays. Ironically, the latest trend is to promote the objectification and nudity of men. If you want an example of a Western country where female nudity isn't considered rude, you should take a look at Germany.

    You mean the whole ‘make tailoring great again’ movement? All that nudity was driving their industry into submission :D

    Leia's bikini was made of cloth? I remembered it as being made primarily out of metal but I'll take your word for it. I must have mis-remembered.
