The 4th exciting season of HBO's Westworld has now officially come to a close. True to form, this year was packed with unexpected twists and startling implications.

While it can often be difficult to discern the direction the show is heading, showrunners have been known to leave clues hiding in plain sight. Have a look below and check out these Westworld hidden costume details that fans might not have caught in Season 4.

Very few television shows are as captivating, polarizing, and downright confusing as HBO's 'Westworld'.

Westworld began in the not-so-distant future as an adult theme park, set in the time of the old west. It was a place where guests could live out their fantasies and can choose to be heroes or villains.

Once inside the park, guests interacted with highly advanced robots, known as "hosts."

These "hosts" were at the mercy of their human guests. They were subjected to violence, ridicule, and even sexual abuse. Then, at the end of every day, their memories of these traumatic events were simply wiped clean.

But after a new narrative was introduced to the hosts' programming by Westworld's co-founder, Robert Ford, things started to go awry.

Several hosts began recalling the horrific events of past guest visits, while others show signs of true sentient thought. In the end, this caused a bloody revolt against staff and guests.

When we fast-forward to today, 'Westworld' has now completed its 4th Season, and a lot has changed.

However, the one aspect that remains constant is the showrunner's tendency to hide easter eggs and allusions to past and future storylines within the characters' costumes.

For instance, in the 1920s version of the Mariposa Saloon, the "knockoff Clementine" wears an almost identical dress to the original.

"We wanted the knockoff to look just as pretty and stand out in the same teal as Angela wears in previous seasons," costume designer Debra Beebe told Insider.

Moving onto Maeve, audiences may have noticed that she continues to wear burgundy throughout the series.

Just as Dolores is always depicted in blue, Maeve is seldom seen without a burgundy dress. Her outfit in Season 4 is nearly identical to that of Season 1, except for the fact that it's a little darker.

Harkening back to the first episode of Season 4, Christina's roommate, Maya, holds up two pairs of pumps for her to choose from.

One is white, while the other pair is black. This was intended to be a throwback to Season 1, where William is asked to make a similar choice.

As he boards the train to Westworld, William is given the option of wearing a white or black hat.

In Season 1, William chooses the white hat, and in Season 4 — Christina does the same. "It registers something in Christina in a way, like, 'I've been through this before,'" Beebe explained.

Speaking of Christina, her penchant for the color blue isn't merely coincidental.

Just as Clementine does, Delores also has a knockoff version in Season 4. Christina therefore purposely wears blue as a callback to previous costumes worn by Westworld's original host.

Lastly, fans have likely realized by now that Charlotte Hale's wardrobe doesn't abide by the rules.

Color schemes denote a character's intentions as well as their purpose in Westworld. But since Hale (Tessa Thompson) is essentially running the show in Season 4 — she gets to wear whatever she wants.

"This is her world, and everyone is playing her games, and she's controlling it," Beebe said.

"She can dress however she wants, wear whatever color she wants, be whoever she wants. Tessa embodies everything that I put on her."
