    Wear white trousers, a short-sleeved, white, button-down shirt and a pair of black shoes as the base layer of your pilot uniform.

  2. 2

    Put on a black tie with the outfit.

  3. 3

    Cut two rectangles from a piece of cardboard that are about 2 inches wide by 3 inches long. Use markers to draw stripes on the pieces of cardboard so they look like epaulettes. Attach the epaulettes to the shoulders of your shirt using fabric tape.

    Purchase a pilot's hat from a local costume shop or online and wear it, along with a pair of aviator sunglasses, to complete the look.
