When I saw this Fashionista heading home from campus I was instantly impressed by her very cool and unique braid. This type of braid is called a Dutch braid, and though it is not common, it is a great look that is about to become a major trend thanks to a little movie called The Hunger Games.
In this epic movie, the stunning Jennifer Lawrence portrays bold and beautiful heroine Katniss Everdeen by rocking her signature braid from the novel — none other than a Dutch braid. It is no wonder why this particular braid was chosen, since it is the perfect mix of a regular braided ponytail and a French braid. It is great because like a French braid, it is stuck to your head so that it stays tidy and in place, however, it is more causal as it looks a bit more like a regular braided ponytail. This makes it an obvious choice for a fierce beauty like Katniss as she competes for her life, but it is also a great look for every day, as this Fashionista so stylishly demonstrates.
Her look is the perfect mix of sleek style and laidback comfort. Her neat shorts, fitted tank and stylish accessories go perfectly with her tidy and fashionable hair-do. However, by throwing a warm and cozy oversized sweater over the outfit, she has added some edge to her look that nicely complements the slick braid. If you want to learn how to do a Dutch braid on yourself so that you can look as fierce as Katniss, take a look at this article for step-by-step instructions.
