Fans of “The Hunger Games” can show their support in style. You can wear your choices to the premiere or simply incorporate the feeling of Panem into your day-to-day wardrobe. While you can choose a promotional design such as comfortable “Hunger Games” sweatpants, there are many different fashionable options for the die-hard fan.
The popular young adult trilogy is an addictive blend of action thriller, dystopian horror, star-crossed romance all mixed with Project Runway. If you haven’t been hooked as yet, be prepared for graphic violence and plenty of implied social commentary. With that said, it will be interesting to see how the book’s detailed imagery will be interpreted on the big screen.
Fashion Inspired by “The Hunger Games”
District 12 Fashion Inspiration
The people of District 12, for the most part, are resilient and loyal to one another. In the novel, this poor district is responsible for coal mining and routinely fight hunger and poverty.
Channel the tough, rugged spirit of Katniss by wearing layers of utilitarian items. These unique Farylrobin leather boots would fit right in especially when paired with muted grays and browns. Make the look yours with bow and arrow themed jewelry. If you want to dress the look up, try a chambray bib shirt dress with a pair of Mary Jane flats are another easy way to give a nod to District 12.
Put a bird on it
While you can find a huge variety of Mockingjay products, any soaring birds will do if you are going for a subtle connection and not all out fanwear. Duck earrings are another simple and subtle way to pay tribute to the moment when Katniss volunteers in place of her sister.
The Capitol is a hive of debauchery, gluttony and materialism. Contrasted with the rugged simplicity of Katniss, the appearance of Capitol citizens is even more outrageous. While you do not have to go to the extremes outlined in the book, glitzy, glamorous choices are easy to adopt.
Hot pink tank paired with a frilly turquoise skirt or a glittery dress and piles of gleaming bangles will do the trick. Slip into a fascinator and choose the most colorful hues of makeup that you dare. Effie Trinket would approve.
Makeovers at the Capitol
Capture Katniss fiery new look after her makeover by stylist Cinna with red, orange and metallic elements. Try a one shoulder red chiffon blouse with your black skinny jeans, gold heels and jewelry. Using “The Hunger Games” inspiration, you can even wear black earrings to represent the coal mining roots.
Safe and Sound tribute
Taylor Swift’s haunting, ethereal song is the perfect accompaniment to “The Hunger Games.” It is also a great inspiration for a romantic outfit. While Taylor Swift is shown in a one-of-a-kind vintage gown, you can recreate the look with a lace tank and feminine shorts or skirt. Delicate jewelry that centers around the forest and cemetery setting completes the outfit like this leaf and twig necklace.
