Happy Hunger Games! Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or cut off from all contact with the outside world, you are aware that The Hunger Games was released on DVD this past Saturday. Super fans can now watch the film adaptation of the overwhelmingly popular novel over, and over, and over… Well, you get the idea. Being a big fan of the book myself, I loved the movie and am really looking forward to watching it again. One thing about the adaptation that I was happy about was the way they kept so much (not everything, but a lot of it) true to the story from the book. Including the fashion. It was amazing to see the futuristic clothing, makeup and hairstyles from the Capitol come to life on the big screen.
Those looks are cool and all, but they’re not really practical for my everyday look. But with Fall just around the corner and an itch for my favorite season’s clothing coming on strong, what is practical for me is Katniss Everdeen’s District 12 look. Consisting of weathered leather, tall boots and rugged jackets, her style was right up my alley (minus the whole hunting in the woods aspect).
Here are some items I feel are very Katniss-worthy that I would love to add to my wardrobe.
