You might have read the books or taken a trip to the cinema, or your interaction with Hunger Games franchise may have been accidental, but, you would have been exposed to it at one point or another – unless you just woke up from a coma that is.
Having made its mark on box-office figures and book sales, Catching Fire has proved to be hot hot hot in the fashion world, influencing both men and women’s styles.
From attractive actors to outstanding clothing, your gaze never wanders from the screen. I particularly love the contrast between the practical fashions of the rugged Districts and opulent designs of the Capitol. From earthy tones and distressed denim, to high-shine fabrics and blue hair, the differences are a stroke of true costume design genius.
So if you want to create something a worthy of Katniss, Peeta or Caesar, here’s my top outfits picks to help you create your own screen-hero.
One of the boldest characters in the films without a doubt, Caesar’s style is loud and over the top. While you might think his purple eyebrows and high-shine jackets are more fancy dress than street style, you can take a little of his confidence and wear it with ease. How about a gorgeous Alexander McQueen skull suit? Available from FarFetch, it might be pretty costly but again, it’s McQueen, it’s hardly going to be bargain! Forgetting its price, I think it’s a great Caesar-esc suit for the bold dresser who wants to make an entrance and entertain an audience.
For all my fashion loving girls who are looking for a more accessible style, the woman to turn to is the heroic Katniss Everdeen. The District 12 fighting femme has made a huge impact on current trends and we’re seeing her stylish practicality everywhere. Chanel her ready-for-anything look by pairing these gorgeous dark grey marble effect Lee skinny jeans from Psyche with a tough but pretty pair of boots. The Ugg Australia Black Jena Military Boots are perfect!
Peeta is our reliable hero and like him, most of his clothing choices are wardrobe-essentials you can trust. He owned the tight black tee during the fight-to-the-death games, so invest in a good cotton number as a base-layer. Pair it with some khaki trousers and a hooded waterproof jacket, like the Lyle & Scott vintage jacket from ASOS and you’re ready to be victorious – in the fashion stakes that is.
