Bold and Fearless: Katniss from “The Hunger Games”
“The Hunger Games” series broke out in the book world with the sort of youthful momentum that hadn’t been seen since Harry Potter. Likewise, “The Hunger Games” movies have been a commercial success. At the center of this phenomenon is Katniss Everdeen (played in the films by Jennifer Lawrence).
She’s the rugged rule-breaker who has had to struggle to survive. She’s economical, street savvy, and a warrior. Her wardrobe isn’t glamorous but then, she’s fighting for her life. Her clothes are suitable for the wooded arena in which she has to camp, climb, hunt, and kill. They reflect the forest: greens, browns, and other dark colors so that she can blend easily into her surroundings.
Katniss is stylish, but that’s not her first priority. I’ve gathered together some pieces that are understated and utilitarian, while still being attractive.
