SheKnows has posted their own interpretations of The Hunger Games style - the way Katniss is described throughout The Hunger Games trilogy.
Katniss Everdeen is one literary character we’re actually proud to see our sisters and daughters emulate (we’re looking at you, Bella Swan). Author Suzanne Collins purposely described her heroine in simple terms so we can create our own image of her. The movie version of The Hunger Games has given us a more definite look at Katniss’ clothing and style, but we still have our own visions of what she should be wearing.
Katniss Everdeen’s day-to-day life in the Seam is bleak, to put it mildly. The 16-year-old is forced to hunt all day to support her mother and sister and doesn’t have the time to put any ounce of thought into her look, other than her signature braid. We imagined Katniss’ clothing to mirror that of a more modern Annie Oakley, except substitute a bow and arrow for a shotgun. Our favorite archery expert doesn’t wear skirts, though — we’re thinking more fitted cargo pants and button-down linen shirts instead of a pioneer hoop skirt. Still, both Katniss and Annie are one-in-the-same: They don’t take crap from anyone — and they certainly don’t bow down to The Man, or in this case, The Capitol.
The Reaping is the only part of the story when Katniss appears somewhat vulnerable — and that’s only because of the terror she faces when her sister, Prim, is called up as a Tribute. To play up this vulnerability and uncertainty, we imagined Katniss’ Reaping dress as a simple white peasant-style dress accessorized with a ribbon and empire waist. After all, our heroine barely has enough food to survive on, so she’s not going to be decked out in fancy dresses like Effie Trinkett.
