Styling The Capitol Couture Collection

I feel like all I've done recently is talk TV, film and books, and today... well, I'm still talking books/film but I'm also bringing things back around to fashion! When I first heard about the Capitol Couture collection I was looking forward to seeing the pieces which were all designed by Trish Summerville (costume designer for Catching Fire) and last week the collection debuted on Net-A-Porter.

Instead of just posting images of the collection I thought I would create a styling ideas post and share a little inspiration. Although there are some striking evening dresses in the collection including a laser-cut patent leather design and a Mockingjay inspired silk-chiffon number, today I'm focusing on some of the more casual pieces styled for everyday wear.


Look One is focused around the Love Stretch-Jersey T-shirt in grey, priced at £60. The oversized style fit of the t-shirt makes it perfect to pair with leggings like this leather panel pair by DKNY. For accessories I've picked out a cosy bobble hat from Topshop and a simple necklace from ASOS. Throw on a causal-yet-structured jacket and some so on trend cutout boots and you're ready to brave the weather!


Look Two features the Honeycomb-Print Stretch-Jersey Leggings (£90). These leggings, with their honeycomb side panels reminiscent of the 75th games outfits are designed to be super comfortable yet still stylish. Personally my favourite way to wear leggings in Winter is with an oversized jumper like this one from H&M and a snugly snood. Finish off the look with some practical biker boots and a simple piece of jewellery like this bow & arrow cuff which is also part of Trish's collection.


The final look stars a very cosy looking Girl On Fire Modal- blend Jersey Sweatshirt (£115). Sweatshirts are great for throwing over dresses to keep warm and this on trend tartan tea dress is the perfect colour palette for winter. Team with a pair of cosy black tights, statement red shoes and a generous helping of chunky silver rings for an edgier look.

Which look is your favourite?
