Here at Prêt-À-Tricoter we love how popular culture and fashion have been merged. We adore how make-up lines have recently introduced themed ranges like the MAC Wonder Woman range or the OPI Muppets Nail Varnishes. Fashion takes it’s inspration from a variety of places but the Mad Men Collection by Banana Republic is the perfect fusion of fashion and T.V.
Of course,Hunger Games is no exception China Glaze has introduced a nail varnish line themed around the film – we love Dress Me Up, a great greige tone.
For the ultimate fusion of fashion and the Hunger Games check out Disneybound, giving you inspiration how to dress like your favourite character. You should add this blog to your daily reads as they have some amazing themed outfits for all things Disney (and some not so Disney).

“Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, “The Hunger Games.” The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat’s sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.” Description from Amazon
