Woylaa.com – From many young adult fictions that have been adapted to the cinematic screen, The Hunger Games trilogy is the one that created many influences, including in fashion. Katniss Everdeen, the heroine of the story (played by Jennifer Lawrence), quickly became an inspiration for new trends in fashion, especially among young girls. Her fashion styles in the movie are unique combination between boyish, glamour and girly girl, and she deftly juggled all three styles throughout the movies without looking awkward.
There are several signature fashion items Katniss wore in the first two movies, The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, including this gorgeous dress that also appeared on promotional photos:
Amazingly detailed and glamorous, this wedding dress is designed by Indonesian designer Tex Saverio, complete with his signature details: many layers of draped soft fabric contrasted with ornamental embellishments. To create even more contrast, the hairstyle and makeup were made simpler, so the whole look is balanced. This wedding dress may not be new trend in fashion since current wedding dress trend is simpler and clean-cut, but this is definitely one of the most memorable pieces Katniss Everdeen wore.
However, if you think that wedding dress is too glamorous, let’s take a look at more wearable collections.
New Trend in Fashion: Katniss’ Look for Young Women
Katniss Everdeen wears different styles of clothing in The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Some of them are feminine, and some are boyish. One of her dresses is perfect for teenagers and adults; this red long dress piece she wears in TV interview scene, for example, has asymmetrical cut and flared bottom around the ankles. The dress can serve as a prom dress, but if you lose the flared bottom, it can look more mature and will serve as a great cocktail party dress. You can pair it with simple hairpiece and white, golden or red heels.
However, Katniss Everdeen is mainly described as a tomboy girl, and her fashion style for more casual occasions reflects it. Her tomboy look and clothing items became new trends in fashion, since she deftly combines tomboy look and chic element. For example, take a look at this piece she wears in Catching Fire:
This is a great piece for fall or winter; leather jacket with double pockets combined with denim, boots and wool vest with modification, so the jacket will still be exposed. Or, how about this look from the first movie:
This ensemble also quickly became new trends in fashion after The Hunger Games was first released in 2012. Katniss Everdeen’s ensemble in the arena can be modified by choosing similar items. Pair black parka jacket with artificial fur for winter or fall, simple black tee, grey denim, embellished boots and Mockingjay pin (you can order this specially or just attach gold pin with bird ornament). The whole look is great with leather bag or sporty bag.
Whether you want to look feminine or girly, or show off your inner boyish soul, take your cue from various ensembles Jennifer Lawrence rocks effortlessly as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games trilogy.
